I had a bowl of udon and an order of sushi. Both were fine, it was difficult to really tell because of the terrible service in the place. From the time I walked and stood waiting to be seated, only to be ignored for over 5 minutes, I could hear other guests yelling to the staff asking to pay their... More

I've been dining a Sushi Heaven for almost 10 years now. It is by far my favorite sushi spot in town. There have been times I've have lunch AND dinner at this Carmel gem. Always fresh and delicious! I highly recommend: -the crunch roll (California roll topped with shrink tempura and Unagi sauce. Get extra sauce on the side...you'll love... More

This restaurant is easily missed looks a lot smaller from the outside. Comfortable seating a few choices. On entry I was greeted with a smile and seated quickly, menu handed out and entree out in a flash. The soft crab cooked to perfection. Second course took a while to come out I don't think they prep it's all cooked fresh,... More

We enjoyed a simple dinner here with our teens after exploring Point Lobos and Carmel. Its a few blocks away from Carmel's main shopping area, a pleasant walk. We had basic sushi rolls - Califormia roll, tuna roll, and tried the Tom and Jerry. Presentation was lovely and everything tastes fresh. Prices were a good value, which was important to... More

It is only a small door restaurant on Dolores St, but what a huge great surprise!!! Sushi tastes fresh as it should and absolutely delicious, much more than we were expecting due to the premisses... We had food in the house and also to go, and both were superb!

We have eaten here several times. Food is consistent. Sometimes it has been "easy" to get in; sometimes the place is packed. You might call ahead and see how busy they are.

This is very small but cozy restaurant. Interesting decor with photos on the walls. Very fresh and tasty sushi reasonably priced. Will definitely come again next time.

A hotel manager recommended this to us and it was one of the worst sushi meals we've experienced. I hate to write negative reviews but each order came smothered in globs of spicy mayo, obscuring the delicate flavors of the fish. The sushi rice was unseasoned. Need I say more? Avoid this restaurant if you want good sushi.

I'm local and eat at Sushi Heaven at least once a week. We love this place. It is simple, with good food, and good prices. The waitresses are fast and kind. They are closed on Sundays, and Friday Saturday I would recommend to make a reservation. Their lunch and dinner boxes are the best deal, but everything is pretty good.... More

We went on a Tuesday night, the nigiris are fresh but the rice of the rolls were not cooked to its perfection, a bit loose and the rolls we ordered actually came apart. The rolls are relatively smaller compared to Bay Area standard but also priced cheaper.
