Was in town for work for just two days and flying out the next morning so this was a solo dinner. Solid sushi restaurant, very friendly service, quick and all the items were fresh and nicely presented. They don't have a lot of specialty rolls with goofy or pretentious sauces, so if you're looking for designer trendy hipster rolls, this... More

Higuma is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, Japanese cuisine in the area. In the face of many new Japanese restaurants, Higuma survives. Its quality is consistent; its food good; its selections reasonable, and it has a loyal clientele. It is a smaller restaurant, tables are close together, parking is poor with the option of parking on the... More

Driving southbound on El Camino in Redwood City just past Whipple Avenue, keep your eyes peeled for this little hole in the wall. If you blink, you'll easily pass by it (total seating capacity is under 30 - it's that small!). Went there for lunch with co-workers and were treated to very good servings of sushi and tempura. There is... More

My husband and I moved to Redwood City 2 years ago. As long time sushi fanatics, we were anxious to find our go to sushi place. A friend referred us to the "best sushi place". Not naming names, but we were very disappointed. We stumbled onto Higuma and were so impressed with the fresh fish, high quality menu and the... More

This is my 2nd favorite Japanese restaurant in Redwood City. The owner is nice and always greets with a friendly smile behind the sushi counter. The fish is always fresh. Serving size of the fish though may be slightly below average. They have a good selection of fish on the chalkboard which is the fish they have fresh that's off... More

I always enjoy our visit to Higuma. Food is very tasty and fresh. Their sushi is very good why her you order Americanized sushi or the authentic sushi. There are wide selection to choose from and we never got bored of their menu after many years of visiting. Our children enjoy their soba noodles. As they are popular it is... More

We went on a Friday night around 6:30pm. The place is small inside and to it's very cramped. There's one restroom for men and women and the door to the restroom is right next to people dining. YUK ! We told the waitress that we wanted all of our food served at the same time because of what we ordered.... More
