A wonderful location in Pismo Beach indeed. The Sushi is good quality/ The tempura is also of good quality. The service is quite slow, and even in a near empty restaurant, it is challenging to get someone's attention. Oh Well, this can and should improve....More

There is a lot happening here....a popular place, evidently. However, I ordered a Chicken Donburi for dinner, and was disappointed. Given the restaurant's environment, I was expecting spectacular. The meat was sparse and I couldn't find the egg that usually covers it....

Seems that the teppenyaki is more popular than the sushi...very loud even though not that many people there. During a weeks visit to the area, we dined her twice, not because it was great, simply because it was OK and convenient. Nothing exceptional...tried different rolls...More

Every time we meet here the experience is entertaining, delicious, and fun. Our family sat at the grill and of course the chef got to know us a little bit like our names. The portions were satisfying, and tasty. I tried 2 new things: Kirin...More
