We almost walked by this place. It is in the center of the main drag, Palm Canyon Drive, but tucked behind some other restaurants. We were looking for some ramen and we lucked out. This place appears to be a cross between a poke/sushi restaurant and noodle shop. We tried the ramen and the udon. They were both a bit... More

We went to Happy Sushi expressly for the Sushi and were not disappointed. The service was prompt. The Sushi ingredients were fresh and quickly assembled. We enjoyed over 5 types of Sushi and had a wonderful night undert the stars. The house white wine was tasty!

Perfect location tucked away on main strip. I had veggie Bob Marley sushi. Lemon slices razor thin. My Main Man got Udon bowl also delish. I feel like we are slowly watching Palm Springs turn into an all chain type restaurants/hotels so it's more important than ever to support indie places. Staff takes their job seriously and they are very... More

We tend to come to Happy Sushi every time we go to Palm Springs, and order a ton of sushi. The price and service are always great! This time around it took a long time for our food to come out. I think it was because they were under staffed.

Went there for a late afternoon lunch. Initially, the service was lackluster, but once I was seated all that changed. Happy hour is 20% off selected rolls, it's a good assortment also. The wait staff was attentive and responsive to needs and anticipated needs, which was refreshing and redemptive. Will definitely go back for another meal, so should you!

Brought my niece & nephew with my friend & her daughter. Everyone had exactly what they wanted and the food was fresh and delicious. Which is especially important when kids are picky about what sushi they eat. The server made some suggestions as well as advising the chef so the rolls weren't too spicy. Perfect place with yummy sushi right... More

What a hidden little gem! We've eaten here two times now and the food is excellent and the atmosphere is wonderful. The black pepper tuna roll is one of my favorites, definitely worth a try.

The food was awesome. The sushi was phenomenal, and the bacon wrapped asparagus is a must try. They do have a happy hour from 3 pm to 6 pm.

Stopped by to get some Sushi and the Sushi Chef was more interested in getting hooked up the taking care of business. The fish was very rubbery and the Shrimp was tasteless, the Whasabi had no kick. Have to say Worst Sushi place I have eaten at, not sure how they stay open in Palm Springs

Visited alone while at a conference in Palm Springs. Sat at the sushi bar. Service was quick, everyone was friendly, food was very good. Reasonably priced for Sushi in Palm Springs. They have a lot of bad reviews on Yelp from a couple years ago, but don't believe it. This place was good.
