I'm hardly an expert, but I found the sushi here delicious and interesting. I particularly liked the Dragon Roll. Fun and tasty.

We walked over from our cousins' place and stopped for the happy hour service. I ordered an Asahi draft, which I hadn't had in a while. We really loved the creaminess of the california roll and the crispness of the nori that wrapped it. We ordered a few kinds of nigiri sushi, the maguro and hamachi. We also ordered tai... More

We enjoyed this restaurant. We did not eat sushi but everyone in my party enjoyed their meal. This was our favorite meal while we were in LaJolla and will go back the next time we are in town. It is very convenient if you are staying in LaJolla Shores and the prices are very reasonable compared to others in the... More

Nice little spot in La Jolla, with seating outside, which we loved. The prices are outrageous but the lunch specials are actually a good deal. The soup was good, the tempura was good, but the tuna roll was a miss, in our opinion. However, the presence of the crunchy shrimp roll on the lunch menu saved the day as it... More

Upon arriving in LJS hungry from a long flight from the East Coast, our first mission was to find a good dinner. And find it we did! We chose Sushi Mori partially on the fact that it was later in the evening and they had later hours than most of the surrounding restaurants (which were all only yards from our... More

Went in for some sushi after a kayak tour. This place is just a few doors from where I took a kayak tour. They had a sign outside for lunch specials. I tried one and let me tell you, it was very good! they brought out a very fresh Shrimp crunch roll, then the salmon teriyaki with salad and rice.... More

Usually tourist locations do not really have worthy food to eat. However, I will say this place has decent bento box. Sashimi is too expensive though, so we did not try it. For hanging out, it has a great outside dining. The service was pretty good, the waitress continuously returned to check up on us.

Had the their combo sushi platter, with Thai hot special. It wasn't really hot, but it had a great flavor. You could tell the fish was very fresh. Also had the unagi roll, man it was like butter. Fantastic place. Make sure you sit outside. Great views.
