Note that the location has changed, now much bigger and even nicer, with massive rooms upstairs as well as small easily accessible tables near the entrance. It's in an old house with very high ceilings, beautiful stairway, overall rather classy yet it's been furnished in a rather trendy & original way. I have eaten here before, i'm a regular, so...

Ordered the chow mein, but a maruchan noodle snack pot has more flavour than what I was served here. The rice balls are large, but there is absolutely no seasoning in any of the ingredients. Nothing sushi about this place, wont be going back.

I've eaten here a few times and liked the food. The servings are very generous, and there are a few tables where you can sit and enjoy a quick snack. The balls are REALLY big, and there are a lot of choices of fillings. They are tasty, but my only complaints is that I would prefer more filling and less... More

Very unique dining experience. We came here for lunch and it was a lot of fun. You get a big ball of sushi rice that is stuffed with all kinds of ingredients and then lightly fried (not greasy). This would be a great place to take kids. We tried and probably wont go back since there are better lunch options,... More

Sushi Balls is a fresh twist on sushi. Not exactly traditional sushi here, but all the flavours are there. These grapefruit sized rice balls are stuffed with your favorite ingredients and then fried. Delicious. Great prices and good portions make Sushi Balls a great stop for a filling snack or a light meal.

It's just what you think - sushi ingredients inside a ball of sticky rice, lightly fried. It's great! A bit of chipotle sauce & soy sauce, and it about got me addicted! It's a cool combination of a Mexican recipe (ball o rice) with Mexican flair. I've been telling all my friends about it, and I look forward to coming... More

This place is unlike any other in Guanajuato, and not exactly very Mexican, as one can tell from the name. Some other places do rice balls or maki rolls, but no one does it at this price (28 pesos for a grapefruit-sized Sushi Ball, 35 pesos for a Maki roll), and they are pretty good. The others i tried were... More

Sushi Balls is our favourite cafe for the evening meal because of the flavours, price, and ambience. The cafe is on Plaza Los Angeles so it is possible to sit there and watch the evening life of Guanajuato ebb and flow around you as you eat. The prices are great - the Mexicana in $28 MN but many other types... More
