  • Amazing calamari!!!
  • Sunday sushi bar is the best! Buy a tshirt a wear it each Sunday to spin the sushi wheel for great prizes! Meljon is an awesome sushi chef!
  • one of the best places for lunch meetings in the la jolla/UTC area
  • Great place for sushi and sashimi! Try the eel roll and the soft shell crab roll!
  • The crunchy sushi was really delicious and I added salmon on top for $4 more. The bartender was really friendly and helpful. Wine was great. Really great experience all around.
  • Curry dusted calamari was delicious. Star dish for the main was the miso butterfish.
  • Mal John at Sushi Bar is the bomb.
  • Try the protein roll amazing!
  • Must try- pizza roll and truffle fries
  • Welcoming is soo nice and friendly
  • Best sushi spot ever! 50/50 roll is unreal.
  • Excellent sushi but pricey & service can be hit-or-miss. They tend to provide better service of you buy drinks
  • Average sushi. High price. Overall meh.. But then comes the desert! The best banana tempura ever.
  • Amazing happy hour. Cheap great sushi. Go and you won't regret it
  • Not mind-blowing (apart from their pricing) but I'd recommend the Carne Asada and Protein rolls.
  • Happy Hour all day Saturdays! :-) Try the oyster trio, beef skewers and Hawaiian roll!
  • Get the raw oyster trio for $5, each with a different dressing. Delicious!
  • Try the fried calamari!
  • Romantic sushi restaurant
  • The sushi here is great. The best roll is the dragon roll, although you can't go wrong with the pizza roll or rainbow roll either.
