OMG I have never been so sick in my life – Something was squishy about the spicy tuna handroll but I had no idea i was in for an overnight stay in the emergency room that night. They've been closed for roaches. I hope they clean up their act before you eat there.
decent sushi – I love me some sushi! This place was just okay for me, though the staff was very, very nice. I ordered the tiger eye i think it was called, and it was not quite up to my standards. i also ordered a philly roll, which was good, but those are hard to mess up. My wife ordered some sashimi, she said it was edible, but she definately not what we would call excellent.
Over all if you are in the area its a great place to stop in for lunch , they have some specials. But if you are looking for some seriously good sushi, check out Slow Fish in HB- Amazing!!
Best baked sushi rolls I have ever had! – The baked scallop rolls are the best I have EVER had!!! My husband and I were on a roadtrip a year ago from oregon to newport beach and stopped by this place randomly. We constantly reminisce about this place!!
Very good for the price – I've been in OC for almost 8 years and have avoided this place simply because of its name. Thought it was another one of those wanna-be sushi places catering to the not-so-sensitized palate. After getting a few recommendations from J-food connoisseurs, I decided to try it out. Brought my folks too. Sashimi was fresh. We had yellowtail, salmon, sweet shrimp and tuna (they were out of toro). Not the best tasting sashimi I've ever had, but for the price, it's worth it. $9 gets you 6 pcs of thick sashimi. We also ordered a lunch combo of tempura and yellowtail collar. Which were very tasty. Even came with miso soup and rice. All that for $8. The table next to us ordered mixed sashimi, and looked very good. Will try next time. Will also try their chirashi next.
Great rolls, and delicious udon – I have grown up on delicious sushi, and was hard pressed finding my "own" sushi place. I Love Sushi is that place. The sashimi was good, although not spectacular, but they have delicious tempura udon and mouth watering rolls. I like the fact that I can order any roll that I want, and the waitresses know what the roll is. There is something to be said about having japanese servers in a japanese restaurant. I have been to sushi places that have no udon, or the sushi chefs have no idea what a futomaki is. Huh? Great sushi, and delicious udon. They could have a wider array of sake and perhaps a little soju as well.
Amazing Sushi, Great Price – I decided to try I Love Sushi from reading the rave reviews on CitySearch. I had been looking for a great quality sushi place to take my boyfriend (who had never tried sushi) but wanted the price to be reasonable. We decided to try I Love Sushi and had an awesome experience! We sat at the sushi bar and chit-chatted with the sushi chef and got a great recommendation from a local sitting next to us. Try the Toyota Roll, it's truly delicious and something a little different (it's wrapped in soy paper with lettuce and also tempura shrimp in the center). After our first visit, I have been back many times and have never been disappointed. The tempura appetizer is especially good and the sushi, sashimi, and rolls are second to none. What's great about this place is that the sushi is such high quality and really fun and interesting yet the price is just right. GO HERE! You won't be disappointed.
Sushi Bar was Fantastic! – I went to this restaurant for the first time and I loved it...we sat at the sushi bar and I tried the crunchy roll, california roll, shrimp roll and the philidelphia roll. mmm they were all sooo good and the chef was very funny. Very reasonably priced, service was a bit slow, but that's to be expected at most sushi bars. They have awesome crunchy rolls! I left stuffed and I will definitely be back.
great sushi, packed on friday after 7:00 – I realy liked this place, the wait was a little long on fridays. There was a hip and trendy crowd to hang out with in the lobby. they have a verry good selection of sushi like live prawns, how's that for fresh, they also have alot of cooked dishes for those of you who dont like raw fish. the atmosphear was verry cool verry traditional with a touch of modern slapped in. a verry eclectic beer and saki selection made this place that mutch better.
Good for non-sushi lovers too! – In addition to the good sushi, they have some amazing hot dishes here. It's a good compromise for my friend that hates sushi, as he will always come for the teriyaki, baked avocado and baked scallop dishes.
Great Sushi – We've been going for about a year and the sushi is always amazing. It's so good in fact that we put up with some of the worst service ever in order to eat there. Go with paitence, leave full.
