This has become my favorite restaurant when Visting San Diego. This is not about a shee shee environment. It's about eating the freshest most amazing sushi available that day. The chef/owner takes pride and care in serving some of the best sushi you can find. I recommend just having them being what is fresh and spectacular. Shino thank you for making my last night in SD a meal I will remember

Visiting from Vancouver, BC and having spent a lot of time in Japan, I had high hopes for sushi in San Diego. I was only in town for a few days and so I didn't have enough time to try a bunch of sushi restaurants here.

After reading a bunch of reviews from different sources, I decided on visiting Shino. I can safely say that I was not disappointed. The protege of Master Ota apparently opened this restaurant 4 years ago and if he's learned anything from Master Ota, its the quality of the sushi he presents.

I was lucky enough to be served by Keith, a 4th generation Japanese who served my girlfriend and I at the sushi bar. He was very welcoming and very friendly. I asked for the omakase and he did not disappoint. Each piece was well presented and came with a nice introduction. There was so much variety of sushi that there were pieces I've never had before.

We were served sashimi, a couple of appetizers, and at least 15 pieces of nigiri sushi. Ice cream for dessert of course at the end! All in all with green tea, it was about $100 US per person. Apparently the omakase starts at around $60 US and goes up from there. The average he said was about $80 to $100. Definitely worth it and would go back.

To note, lots of regulars visited for dinner and were on first name basis! Great atmosphere!

Not a big restaurant. More like hidden gem.
Every sushi was excellent. Locally caught Sea urchin was good in particular.
Nice atmosphere. Most of the chefs are Japanese.
