I am a frequent guest here. Weekday "lunch specials" give you many choices to combine into a 2-item or a 3-item lunch, and both options also include rice, miso soup and salad. They have a long list of sushi rolls, also sashimi and nigiri sushi at all times. For dinner I always order chef's special sashimi, you cannot go wrong with that if you love sashimi. If you or your friends do not eat raw fish, there are plenty of cooked fish dishes, of which teriyaki salmon is my favorite. If you have a birthday to celebrate, they will provide all the guests with the cutest funny hats!

Really nice sushi and freshly made sushi. Don't be afraid to try some nonstandard sushi like the ones with asparagus . Dragon ball z was absolutely amazing .
This is the best restaurant in Monterey and hence you will see people queuing up in front of it .
Defo recommended

Close to the aquarium, but off the beaten track compared to the other tourist places.

We had the lunch menu. Good choice between bento boxes or mixed sushi. Very good quality sushi, the rolls are very good too.

My husband discovered this restaurant a year ago and love it, the staff is super friendly and efficient and the food is really good. I love sushi and it is delicious there. It is also a kid friendly place, as I see families there too. Try this place out, you won’t be disappointed!

After reading all positive feedback about this place I had pretty high expectations and I can honestly say that it was one of the top 2 places I've eaten sushi. The fish was incredibly fresh. Highly recomended!
