All you can eat sushi here is a great value here. Good tasting sushi with good ingredients.
lunch all you can eat sushi!! – I swear, sometimes chef think we don't know what good sushi tastes like. Well I do!! The first time I ate here, I was satisfied, but the more I go, the worse the sushi gets.. 3 stars only because for all you can eat, a couple of bad pieces of fish is still not bad for the price!
OK sushi, definitely overpriced, and yes: run by Koreans. It is close, so we go there when we are desperate. They have improved since new owners came in a year or so ago. They are consistent, so at least one always knows what to expect- even if it isn't perfect.
Overpriced "fake" sushi restaurant run by Korean – This is the only Japanese restaurant in Mira Mesa that has something that at least remotely resembles Japanese food, so despite less than satisfactory experience I have gone there several times. It is basically run by Korean and all the chefs are Korean, who have slight misunderstanding of Japanese. For example, "-don" usually means "rice bowl", like "gyu-don": beef-on-rice as served in Yoshinoya, "katsu-don": katsu-on-rice. When I ordered "sashimi-don" they gave me sashimi over raw veggies but no rice. After eating raw fish on a bowl of salad I felt cold and hungry. "tekka-don" at least contains a thin layer of cold rice in bento-box so technically it is tekka-don. But any real donburi must have a round bowl (literal meaning of don) with hot rice in it. It is a shame they did not decide to open Korean food restaurant because I really like Korean food, and I have to go to Convoy st for if I want Korean food.
I would avoid - The meal is not worth any amount of money – First I should have known something was up when there was hip-hop playing on the stereo and no one else was in the restaurant. I should have also been leery when they asked me if I wanted all I could eat for a fixed price.
I sat alone at the sushi bar ordered a spider roll, a California hand roll, the special nigiri Toro and Ebi and Yellow tail nigiri. While I waited, I noticed that most of the fish was precut.
They gave me the spider roll first. The presentation was nice but the tempura was cold and tasted greasy.
I then got the hand roll. It was the only redeeming item. It was nicely filled with shreded crab, avocado and rice with a nice touch of the bottom being folded in under so nothing would fall out.
I then got the nigiri and it did not look that appealing. The Toro was wet / slimy. It was suppose to be their special of the day and was so bad I could not eat the second piece. It looked like they rinsed it off with water. I then eat the ebi, it was limp and the yellowtail did not have the nice oily taste that I love.
In summary, the fish was not fresh, the tempura was cold, but the service was good. The meal was not worth it at any price."
