We love this little neighborhood sushi place. Family owned and friendly. The fish is extremely fresh, don't come too late, they run out of fish and then close early.

Koba Sushi has the freshest fish in town. Having lived in Ventura for 30 years, we have tried every new sushi restaurant that comes to Ventura. Koba is hands down the best.

I started visiting Koba when I married: my husband was tutored in Japanese by one of the servers. The food is superior, whether sushi or cooked items. This place is small, so diners sit close whether at the counter or at a table. Be prepared...More

Best sushi! Try the steamed clams. Superb sushi, nice atmosphere, extraordinary service. Clean restaurant, friendly staff. I like it because of the freshness of the fish, and the preparation. It will surpass your expectations by far. This is real Japanese sushi.
