    The delicious mango roll above. I would suggest getting there before 6pm because that's when it got busy. The burrito roll was also awesome! I would def go back to this place! Great food and service!

    You'd never know it from the outside, but what you'd assume is a hole in the wall, is a Dana Point gem. Beautiful & comfortable interior, with friendly service, clean fish, and beautiful presentation.

    Authentic. Good / Pricey made to order sushi. Their early bird dinner special is a good deal. Boat dinners are popular. Parking is limited so be prepared to walk a bit.

    Get the sushi burrito and a poki bowl! I've been going here for sushi for as long as I can remember. Great staff and great food.

    Even though for time being it's being remodeled after a fire, once it re-opens this place has the best Sashimi in the area and the friendliest service!

    The fish is so fresh here. Been coming here for 20 years. The sake's not bad either.

    Lousy service tonight from our waiter. Everything was served late and he was unapologetic. If you're on a romantic date...be sure you don't get Rocky as your server.
