Mahe in Dana Point is one of the best sushi values in South County, especially at their daily and all day Sunday happy hours. The rolls are spot on and for the non-sushi types, try their sliders. As a rule, the staff is friendly and conversational.

While I admit it was a Wednesday night, the place was slow. The Mahe sushi roll was excellent. The Mahe Mahi dinner was pretty dry.

We were here for dinner on a Friday night. The poke was fresh, and had some spice to it. The swordfish and mahi special were delightful! So tasty and flavorful. The ahi tuna salad was good, but not great. It would have been better if it had more veggies than greens included in the salad. The music was really loud inside, so we sat on the patio so we could hear each other talking. Overall, we had a nice time here.

My impression is that the restaurant is known more for its sushi and traditional service, as there are only 2 of the ‘family seating’ style cooking tables, which is where we ate.
Our chef was very entertaining and very good. While I’ve seen most of the ‘tricks’ (flaming onion volcano, shrimp tails tossed into the air and caught on the chef’s hat, etc.), our guy made them fun. As with most of these meals I’ve had, the chef is very quick, and certainly the food arrives on your plate very hot.
Soup was good, nothing special, but certainly not a detraction.
We did take advantage of their ‘early bird’ seating for dinner, and we were very impressed with both the quality and the quantity of our entrees.
Very highly recommended!
