    This sushi joint is tasty. I ordered the 4 x 4, also recommend the hot hot shauna and the ninja roll. Very reasonably priced! Tip: get the carafe of plum wine.

    We waited a little bit when we first got there, but it was worth it! The service was speedy once we were seated. A server said people had been eating, then sitting for a long time, hence the wait.

    have a Drink Special (Sapporo and house sake for $5.50). Makes for great sake bombs.

    Bring coins with you if you plan to dine here during the day before 6pm. Most parking near the area is metered parking, and the patrol people very diligent. 25¢ = 12 minutes.

    The waiters are not retarted. The sushi is as good as you are going to get for the price. The waiters do the best they csn to accommodate. I am thankful we have someplace like sushi deli.

    I LOVE this place!! I don't eat seafood but I love that they have great alternative (non-fish/crab/eel/seafood) rolls. I recommend the Hot Hot Shauna, I'm addicted to those.

    Shrimp lovers perfect combo: Navavava Roll & Shrimp Killer Roll. Get a side of spicy mayo and teriyaki sauce to top it all off! Mmmmm.

    If you like octopus try the Takoyaki! They are a tasty fried rice ball with pieces of octopus! A traditional Japanese treat🙏😊🙆

    Been coming here on and off the last 6-7 years or so and their raw fish has never been fresh! Cheap prices though, definitely not a place for sushi snobs

    There is always a but if a wait but the cheap prices make up for it. San diego roll and the Verano rolls are my favorite!

    Good for getting drunk during happy hour, if you can stand the wait. Decent rolls, not for the sushi connoisseur as it's a little lower grade, but certainly a step up from the grocery store.

    Good deals & value. Try to beat the weekday lunch crowd by arriving a little before 12PM.

    We waited over an hour and when we were seated at 8:45 we were told this was the last call for food. Ouch. There are still a lot of people waiting and I wonder if they will get to eat.
