Hard to find as it adjoins another restaurant and shares the same entrance, and the restaurant sign is not very visible. However, quite the surprise. House wine not exorbitant, full bar. We shared a cucumber salad then wife had the Mango Madness and I had...More

One of Oceanside's newest restaurants, this a delight for its amazing vegetable broth sautéed banana peel topped with tomatoes, fresh basil, quinoa, onions and a hint of garlic. Good beer and wine list, too.

Doesn't look like much on the outside but once inside the food was a treat. Best exotic sushi I've eaten. Service was great. Food fresh and delicious. I would recommend this place but reserve since it is small. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food.
