“Pricey and VERY good!”
Review of Japanese Blossoms

Very good and varied sushi (but other dishes on the menu are cheaper if you don't go for the sushi and some regular Japanese type fare). The way you can order is great as you mark your selections on a piece of paper and just keep going -- and WE DID! All the variety of rolls we tried were either good or very good. I don't think they have a bad one on the menu. Varied items on the menu allows you to choose something everyone should appreciate. There were kids in the restaurant but as it is an open space, it was noisy, so a quiet dining experience, when we went on Saturday, and thought it would probably be crowded, i.e. people waiting to get in -- it wasn't and for the quality that was unexpected. It was full, just no one waiting to get in. So moderate pricing on regular menu items, sushi was about what good sushi runs in restaurants. Again, it was really good sushi and some rolls that were obviously specials that are just made in that restaurant.

My son and his wife went there for their anniversary dinner and raved about it when they came home so I wanted to check it out. My sister and I decided one night to go and it was every bit as wonderful as they said. Really nice upscale dining with excellent service, fresh sushi and extremely tasty foods.

We stopped in to Japanese Blossoms for lunch and enjoyed our experience. It was fairly quiet for lunch time, so parking was easy, we seated ourselves and were attended to immediately. Our waitress was very nice, took our drink order right away and gave us time to look over the menu and order.

We got tuna nigiri and we each had a chicken teriyaki bowl. The nigiri was tasty and fresh. Our teriyaki bowls were warm and filling. The chicken was well cooked, as were the vegetables. The majority of the bowl was filled with rice, which wound up being a bit much for us to finish as a lunch dish.

Overall, a good experience and I'd go back and try them again.

Great sushi, attention to detail and friendly informative staff. It's easy to see why Japanese Blossoms won "Best of Chico".
If you're new to sushi, don't be afraid. Sit at the bar and let the fantastic and friendly chefs guide you.
The new owner has kept everything that was great about the restaurant and has introduced new creativity into the menu.
And don't worry, Yuka is still making the incredible cheese cakes for desert.

I love the Udon and the Sushi here. The food is fresh and favorable. The wait staff is helpful and friendly. Can't wait to try more on items on the menu.
