All my favorite Japanese dishes were available. It was hard to choose. I finally settled on shrimp & vegetable tempura. The shrimp & vegetables were coated with a light batter and perfectly cooked. My husband enjoyed his sushi rolls. For dessert, mochi ice cream, of course!

My coworker and I visited here for dinner and sat at the sushi bar. It was a pleasure watching the itamae perform their work. The food was wonderful.

We eat a lot of sushi and this is by far one of the best we have ever been to. Really fresh buttery salmon, a dynamite roll which was the best I've ever had anywhere. A must try!!! Heart attack appetizer was spectacular. Everything we ordered was amazing. Excellent waitstaff. You can tell everyone who works there, especially the sushi... More

We visited with a number of couples. The serving chef was average at best, with the food average as well. The view is nice looking out toward Pismo Beach. Prices were modest. If you like sushi you might want to give it a try.

We went back here while returning home from Santa Cruz CA. The floors thru out the place were sticky like they forgot to buy a new mop. We were the first customers and when using the rest there was a lake of pee in front of the urinal.. You could hear the wait staff stick to the floor. Wonder if... More

This restaurant has been consistently voted best sushi in San Luis Obispo County, and with good reason in my opinion. We stopped for dinner and I ordered Rainbow Roll again, which was even better than the last restaurant I had eaten it. The roll was freshly made, the rice portion of it did not stick to the serving plate and... More

Our food was delicious and fresh. The service was incredibly fast and of high quality. We were also able to see the chef cooking right next to us even though we weren't seated at a grill table. Loved it and will be returning!
