Excellent "Out of the Ordinary" Mexican Food at a Very Reasonable Price – If you love Mexican food, but want to change it up a bit, this is a fantastic find with some great regional dishes. I've had a variety of dishes here and every one has actually made me stop to think about what they have put in it as the flavors are all so varied...beautiful moles, cream sauces, and the use of things like strawberries and pine nuts that you aren't going to find in your run of the mill Mexican Food restaurant. I've never had anything I didn't like. My only complaint is that I have to drive 20 miles to get to it...need one in North County!!

Editorial Review by Erin Chambers – Former Chilango's Mexican Grill is back after the sushi teriyaki spot run by the same family in the same location failed.

Suhsi like this you won't find it anywhere else. – This sushi place is small and under a decoration phace,But the food is ggrrreat and the service is very good.The chef goes out of his way to have you 100% satisfy.I don't n know why any body would whait in line if they could walk a few more blocks to ''SUSHI TERYAKI HOUSE'' on 3rd and university.

Superior Food – The food here is delicious!! Not your run of the mill so-called Mexican food like burritos, which is something you wouldn't even find in Mexico, unless you are in a tourist area. The food here is what you would find in a gourmet restaurant in Mexico City. I live in Huntington Beach and will spend a weekend or a day in San Diego just to eat their wonderful food.
