The Korean owner of this reasonably priced restaurant has vast Japanese cuisine experience. Most importantly he understands quality and presentation. Ojai is fortunate to have attracted a sushi chef who knows what he is doing!

This restaurant used to be in Mira Monte, but moved to Ojai about a year ago. Sushi variety is large, very fresh. They have added a Teppan table for Benihana style dishes. Our favorite is the Rib Eye Teriyaki steak with Shrimp or Scallops! They have a special called "Its 5pm somewhere" with sake, assorted sushi. Very good deal!

The best Japanese.... All the dishes I tried on 3 visits were delicious, interesting and satisfying. The best part was our server knew every dish in detail and took the time to explain before we ordered. She has eaten there with her kids for 11 years. If you like salmon, ask for "salmon collar" as it's not on the regular... More

I have eaten here 3 times in just a couple weeks, it's that good. I don't eat meat, so I got veggie rolls of various kinds ( there are several). The asparagus rolls had young, fresh asparagus. Another one I got had several veg and was "slightly fried" which gave the outer surface of the rice a nice crunch. I've... More

Another great Ojai eatery! Sakura is totally a local favorite, and the only drawback to the place is that it can take quite a while to get a table depending on the time of day and day of the week you go there...a testament to the great sushi you'll eat there. Quite a few of their staff has been there... More

Although they take no reservations, the staffs’ team approach dispatched a waiting crowd efficiently to tables, the sushi bar and outdoor seating. The hostess offered toys from a sizable bin to every child, much to their delight. We selected the "Gone to Heaven" salmon appetizer (don’t try to resist), Cajun spicy tuna roll and the “Texas Giant” roll from the... More

This place serves a variety of sushi and bento box-type of dishes. The food is good and the service is excellent. One of the best features is the view of the beautiful street scenes of Ojai. We visited on a Sunday, so this was a nice convenient place across from the weekly farmer's market.

This was actually at their new location on Matilija St. My family loved the sashimi and were amazed at the quality, quantity and price. I actually ordered Green Vegetable Rolls, which were the best non-fish sushi I've ever had. Amazing tasty sauces and a variety of vegetables in the rolls topped with avocado. I'm not a fan of sushi, so... More
