Fodor's Review

One fan called it “a notch above amazing”—an accolade not expected for a Japanese eatery wedged in a strip mall in Pacific Beach. But it’s a destination for lovers of high-quality, superfresh raw fish from around San Diego and abroad. Japanese visitors frequently call for reservations before leaving home. Besides the usual California roll and tuna and shrimp sushi, there are daily such as sea urchin or surf clam sushi, soft-shell crab roll, or the omakase tasting menu. Reservations are strongly encouraged. The front parking lot is very small, but there's additional parking behind the mall.
