Tried the assorted fish poke and found it enjoyable, very fresh and delicious. Service could improve. There was only one waitress who not only seat you, she also manned the till, bartend and serve you. Place needs to invest in more servers.

Came to this place for a relatively late night dinner based on reviews and how close it was to our hotel. Sadly this was one of the poorest dining experiences we've had in San Diego. The sushi was fine, no issues with the food. Unfortunately...More

Came by for an early dinner. The sushi rolls are huge and delicious. Happy Hour gets you a specialty roll for $10. My friend has the Yakisoba Bulgogi budt he only gave it a 6 out of 10. Hot sake is very good.

I only have been here for lunch several times and its a hassle to get in eat and get out in an hour. Service is really slow. Takes forever to get your check and for the waiters to come back. Food is good.

We loved our food but the service was just okay. It wasn't a huge deal, but we weren't too impressed with several things when we came for a late dinner. I would still recommend it.

This has become our go to casual sushi spot downtown. The specials have changed a few times, but I think now it's back to every day 3 pm to close specials on drinks ($4-8), a few appetizers ($3) and about 15 of the rolls ($10)....More

Travelling as a family, we met some friends at Ogawashi for dinner on a Saturday night. We made reservations as we were a big group and were seated immediately at a table at the front by the open window which kept it beautifully cool. Service...More
