Good fresh Sushi, casual atmosphere, and if you're able to get there when they open you can get a great value for your money.

Always excellent food and great selection. Sometimes service is better than others. Some servers are very knowledgeable some just in a hurry to take your order

I would not have thought that a sushi bar headed by a non-Japanese chef would be as excellent - in fact amazing as some other places! This is authentic where the chef is third generation sushi chef. The staff is incredibly competant, attentive and fun, the food features unique rolls and dishes I haven't seen at other bars and the... More

I've been here 5-6 times. The sushi is always excellent. They aren't as creative as the high end sushi places but always fresh and delicious.

This is the best sushi place around. It isn't the cheapest but the fish/food is always super fresh and the service is fast and friendly. On Mondays they have several rolls that are 50% off. Needless to say that makes Mondays extremely busy so the wait can easily be an hour or more.

Stopped in here because Trip Advisor recommended it and we are glad we did. Staff is friendly, place is clean, and food was amazing. We sat at the sushi bar and the chef was awesome and friendly. I recommend the dragon roll! But we had 3 rolls and they were all equally amazing. We will be returning!

For our farewell lunch we went to the Sushi Lounge. I typically don't care much for sushi, but the Lounge ' s expansive menu offered a wealth of diverse options that satisfied everyone in our party of five, including me. All the dishes were fine, and our waitress -- informative and helpful and attentive -- was wonderful.

One of my go-to favorites for sushi - their consistency is top notch, great service at reasonable prices. All the usual sushi type plus some interesting specialty rolls. Photo below is Tasmanian salmon sashimi by Jason the sushi chef - beautiful and outstanding taste

They now have 3 locations. San Diego has great Sushi restaurants and Poway Sushi Lounge is one of the best. Tasty Shashimi. The chefs know what they are doing and fish is always very fresh. They also make classic roles but are also innovative and come out with fun and tasty roles. Of course the food presentation is always beautiful.... More
