Decent rolls. Fresh fish used. Nothing special though. Would like to try again to see if it's different next time around and see if it was the ambiance or something else.

Very nice sushi restaurant in Downtown Encinitas ... classic staple at a decent price point! The toro rolls and california style sushi rolls are all of excellent quality ... they also have a nice sake selection.

They have an amazing deal on a lunch special that you can't even get at McDonald's. $6.99 for chicken teryaki, shrimp and vegetable tempura, salad, and rice. Great spot!
