Lots of creative sushi and good other dishes. Still has the private booths for romantic dining. Be sure to park in the back or if that is full, there is more parking across Portola.

Have been to Pink Godzilla numerous times, it's a must-do whenever I'm in Santa Cruz. Sushi is all ala carte, no conveyors to be found here, but the freshness makes up for the instant gratification of a Kaiten place. Well worth a visit!

Dinner with Kids was fun and reasonably priced. Miso soup was very good, as were the Udon Noodles. Ate at the Sushi bar and enjoyed the atmosphere.

We used to love the Pink Godzilla. But after being totally ignored by the wait staff for lengthy periods of time on several occasions, we finally stopped going. The sushi is good, but not spectacular. Feel bad about not rating it higher, but honesty prevails.

The sushi was very good and not too big as the individual pieces go on the roll but the overall restaurant is dirty. From the menus to the tables and the front of the restaurant is not kept. Too bad

We decided to try this place one evening, what a mistake. We waited about 15 min. before we got seated. After a while, the waitress came by, she said they were very busy and would take our order shortly. Finally, she took our order and we got our drinks. The hostess continued to seat new customers, but I noticed no... More

I have been to the Pink several times with mixed results but this one was the worst. The Sashimi lunch was a disaster of mangled portions and mismatched chunks of fish. The side salad had chunks of lettuce about half the size of the plate do it was messy and awkward to eat and was not properly dressed. Visually, the... More
