In back of a 7-11, with good parking in the back. Easy to get to off the I-5 fwy at Balboa exit. Very authentic with a friendly, family staff. The special rolls are amazing, especially the Dragon Roll and Jalapeño Roll.

The best sushi in San Diego! You can't miss... Every single dish we order it was delicious! Specially the salmon belly! It's also crowded, so make a reservation before you go, otherwise you might no get a table.

Was pleasantly surprised by the interior and blown away by the food. As good as what I've had in Japan.

The food was the finest I have ever had. The atmosphere is great and the price of the food is mid-range.

I've eaten Mr. Ota's sushi since he was a chef at other sushi bars. He now has his own place, hence, Sushi Ota. There is a noticeable difference in Ota's such and other establishments. They even take reservations for the sushi bar.

Super fresh fish - the prawns were still moving! We sat at the sushi bar and the chefs were super chatty and cheery. Nice beers too. If you're a fan of sushi you have to eat here!!
