These folks have one of the most unbelievable Sushi restaurants on the planet, but it is very tiny. We're talking elbow to elbow, so unless you like the folks next to you, be prepared for close quarters fish flinging.....

In all seriousness, their approach to fish is holistic, in that they don't overdo any aspect of their offerings, just pure, clean flavors, beautiful artistry in the presentation, and a great selection of original/classic dishes.

Understand that due to their footprint, whether you get there when they open, or any time in between, you are going to wait for a table or a spot at the Sushi bar.

I can count the times I've been able to get a seat when I walked up on one hand....and I've been going here since they opened.

Worth the wait, but understand you will wait. Head and shoulders above most of the Sushi spots we have available in our town. Just wish it was a bit bigger.... :)

Unassuming location for this great little restaurant. In a strip mall just off Camino Real in San Clemente. Highly recommend the Koba Koba roll (and most other rolls for that matter). Small place with tasteful décor. Expect it to be busy during prime dining hours, there are only a couple of tables. Fortunately they do take reservations.

We love this local Sushi place. They have limited seating and it is usually packed with locals. We have never had a bed meal here - highly recommend!

Hands down one of the best places for sushi I have ever been to, make sure to sit at the bar and skip the regular menu and go directly for the special rolls listed on the blackboard. Some of my favorites include the garlic roll, the Koba Koba roll and the San Clemente roll but really you can't go wrong with anything you try at this hidden gem in San Clemente. Note of warning, the place is located in a cheap plaza and the decor is nothing to brag about, you are going for the food and experience not for the decor

Small place in an unusual location BUT the food is excellent! Their specialty rolls are fun - be sure to check the specials on the board. Garlic and Hawaiian are among our favorites. Servers seem a little distracted but sushi chefs are personable and fast.
