Don't be fooled by the non descriptive exterior. Residing in a strip mall wasn't expecting much but had a craving for sushi. Have had sushi all over the world and this a great find. Not the best I've ever had but a solid menu with fresh inventive dishes at reasonable prices. Friendly and efficient service. Would definitely return.

The sushi was delicious. We ordered a variety and it came out quickly and was hot and very tasty. Not overly salty. The noodle bowls were also delicious. The service was excellent, we particularly enjoyed talking with our friendly waitress Evie. A great Asian dinner experience at a reasonable price.

This is our "go to" sushi restaurant. The fish is always excellent and the value is terrific. The cost for the sushi is less than any other good sushi restaurant I have visited. It is is a strip mall, but the inside is a good atmosphere and a recent expansion makes it much easier to get a table. Service is... More

Visited here with a few work colleagues while on a business trip. I am not a Sushi expert but what I had (Oceanside) roll was good and my colleagues all thought theirs was very good. I also had a chicken bowl which was tasty. We each had a Sushi Roll and a meat bowl and the total food bill came... More

finally found a high in protein roll wrapped in soy paper instead of white rice. The Stark is one of the best I have ever had. Not as carb friendly but the best tasting roll was the Mario Brothers roll. A perfect combination of just enough heat, lime and cilantro. Highly recommend. Easy to get to, just off the 78.... More

I have been to Hooked on Sushi several time now and have been pleased each time. The interesting sushi rolls to try and a full assortment of Japanese food. The service has always been good and friendly.

Some of the best sushi I've ever had and I'm extremely picky about sushi. Get the "Hooked on Sushi" roll....I've never had sushi with cilantro, but it works! The space is a good size. Service was attentive. Prices are seriously good. I would highly recommend a visit if you are nearby.
