Random place in a random strip mall. Surprisingly very good, but also very good expensive. Probably depends who the sushi chef is.
All we can say about this great place is that it has great sushi AND other options if you don't like sushi. I love the comfortable atmosphere and their great salads. Service was especially good for us. Don't worry about ordering special or substitutes as they will accommodate!
Great Service & Excellent Sushi and has a Great Happy Hour Menu and has a Friendly Staff , also has the best sliders , Zenbu rolls , Great place to Bring the Family or a Date ,
Our Friday evening at Zenbu was mediocre. The sushi, nigiri, sashimi and specialty fish salads were a 5 out of 10. Not the freshest fish I had. Good, not bad but not the greatest. I sometimes have difficulty taking any Japanese restaurant seriously seeing no Japanese Chefs behind a sushi bar. One of the greatest compliments for a restaurant is... More
A visit in July 2012 to local-recommended Zenbu in Cardiff was a treat. The restaurant/bar is small, and the DJ for the evening, though a treat to listen to and very talented, was only 4 feet from our table, so it was a little noisy for my liking.

She never acknowledged us. I finally asked another waiter that... More
We sat in the small bar of this restaurant. I was impressed at how they were able to renovate the space so it did not feel like another strip mall restaurant. It is a bit loud but not too bad. They definitely have their own scene which is not upsetting but did make me want to roll my eyes while... More
This was a great restaurant! Not the best for our 21 month old, a little dark, but the fish... They have their own boats to catch their fish, so it is so fresh. They also raise their own cattle. We had a few sushis rolls and they were just great. Nothing ingenious, but thoughtfully created. Again, the fish was so... More
It was a great place to go and eat sushi. The atmosphere was great and very pleasant.
This place was recommended by 2 people for us to meet some out of town business friends. Such a disappointment. We felt like sardines shoved into the chairs and table and the service was beyond slow. The waiter was terrible and never said a word or apologized. Sushi was average. Nothing special. Drive to encinitas and go to mister sushi.... More
