Small little hidden gem! We got there as they opened so only couple other people there which scared me into thinking this place wouldn't be so good but I was soooo wrong!! Quickly it started getting packed and people had reservations. My BF got a couple rolls and I got katsu chicken. The food was excellent!! Really good quality! Really... More

Sushi Heaven is a gem -- great sushi and sashmi at reasonable prices in ridiculously over-priced Carmel (I write as somebody who lives there, wouldn't live anywhere else, but seldom gets value for money). The staff are Japanese, so expect competent rather than effusive service.Small and deservedly busy, so make a reservation or be prepared to wait.

We went twice during our stay in Carmel. The staff were lovely, very friendly and attentive. All the food we had was great and they had very interesting maki combinations. Also very reasonably priced.

My wife and I were regulars here. The service has always been lacking but the sushi is usually fresh. We came a few nights ago and everything was bad. We waited over 10 minutes to be greeted, never received our salads and the sushi was so bad we couldn't eat it. I tried to speak with the owner but he... More

We were on a search for great fresh sushi, we found it. There's many good restaurants here in Carmel however, to us great sushi can be hard to find. This cute little not fancy place is very very good. At first we weren't sure, but once the sushi arrived we were very happy campers. We had Salmon sushi, which was... More

We are two local couples who came to this restaurant for an early dinner before a classical music concert in Carmel. We did not want to overeat and feel sleepy at the concert, so we had two orders of "Love boat" sashimi/nigiri sushi combination for the four of us. It was plenty! It came with miso soup and salad, and... More

We were traveling with our dog and wanted lunch. This restaurant allowed us to walk through with our dog and sit on their patio. Food was a bit slow but very good. Great service.

Love the staff, the service, and the atmosphere of this restaurant! The selection is great! But the quality of the fish seems to have dropped a tad over the years.
