Sushi Ota

Sushi Ota Review

Wedged into a minimall between a convenience store and a looming medical building, Sushi Ota's location might seem less than auspicious but it helps to know that San Diego–bound Japanese businesspeople frequently call for reservations before boarding their trans-Pacific flights. Look at the expressions on customers' faces as they leave and you can see the satisfied glows that result from dining on San Diego's best sushi. Besides the usual California roll and tuna and shrimp sushi, there are specialties that change daily such as sea urchin or surf clam sushi, a soft-shell crab roll, or the omakase tasting menu. Note that Japanese speakers tend to get the best spots, and servers can be abrupt. There's additional parking behind the mall.
