Solid choice for sushi in La Jolla! Good choices for no rice sushi! Catered well to our large family and our 18 month old grandson who loved the crab meat and tempura.

We loved the food, service, and huge glass windows. It felt like we were eating outside. We each had a roll, seaweed salad and miso soup.
