Mahe gets its business mostly from visitors, most likely. The location is great, right near the harbor. The setting is modern and sleek. Most of our party had sushi rolls and fried rice bowls. Everything tasted fresh. They had steak and other entrees on the...More

We dine at Mahe every time we visit Dana Point. It's a short walk down the hill by the Laguna Cliffs Marriott, and sunny afternoons are our favorite. The patio is very inviting, the sushi menu is classic and extensive and the prices are reasonable...More

We were looking for a sushi place within walking distance of the harbor. We happened upon Mahe and we couldn't have been more impressed. The food was outstanding and their happy hour menu is extremely good - about half price - very, very generous. We...More
