Love GuGu ! Always consistently great sushi and love the JJRoll. Been coming here for a long time and it's great. Also recommend most of their special rolls and the fatty yellowtail!

If you eat sushi a lot like I do, you can tell the difference between a good sushi and a bad one. Came to eat here as I was given a gift card. Ordered hot green tea, miso soup and rainbow roll. Let's start with the tea......clearly not green tea and if it was, it was a watered down lukewarm... More

Large varied menu of sushi, specialty rolls and dinners. Nice and attentive wait staff. Lots of parking in strip mall. Look forward to going back.

If you like your sushi in a cool,swank atmosphere, this place is not for you. If you adore fresh, creative, lovingly crafted rolls at a great price then you are in sushi heaven! Go go to GuGu! Great happy hour, plus they're open for lunch!

Gu Gu sushi is hands down the best sushi I have had in my life. I had 4 different rolls - their variety is beyond phenomenal. I was extremely impressed - fresh, great food. Fabulous. Just fabulous

We used to eat here all the time and since the head chef left the quality of the rolls has depleted. The fish isn't as fresh as before, service has went down as well. Wouldn't go back and its a shame because this used to be our favorite sushi place.

They used to have a decent happy hour but I guess they changed all the deals to only 20% off basic nigiri. They charged roughly 4 dollars for the standard 2 pieces after the discount so no real deal here. Didn't see seaweed salad on the menu but asked for an order, it was 9 dollars for a small bowl,...

We used to be locals before we moved to Dallas and we make it a point get back here every time we're in town. This place is a hidden gem in the south bay, not much to look at, but the sushi is excellent every time, and always fresh! The selection of rolls is massive.. the most we've ever seen.

We tried GuGu since we're local a few years back. This is our favorite sushi bar because the food is really good and the prices are very reasonable for a beach city. Albeit the location is not enticing, the food will bring you back time and time again. Dont leave without trying the JJ-roll or Santa's Balls!
