Every year Sushi Lounge holds a contest to come up with new tastes, new variations of flavors, The winners make the menu. The winners are picked by the patrons. How awesome is that? The flavors are both traditional and unique, new and local. Poway Sushi Lounge is a most excellent adventure, ask for Tory!!

You wouldn't think that a sushi restaurant tucked away in the inland section of northern San Diego would rival other places- but this place will surprise you. Great food, excellent presentation, friendly service. One of my favorites in San Diego and IMO second only to Sushi Ota. They have interesting rolls and I've never been disappointed.

Good fresh Sushi, casual atmosphere, and if you're able to get there when they open you can get a great value for your money.

Always excellent food and great selection. Sometimes service is better than others. Some servers are very knowledgeable some just in a hurry to take your order

I would not have thought that a sushi bar headed by a non-Japanese chef would be as excellent - in fact amazing as some other places! This is authentic where the chef is third generation sushi chef. The staff is incredibly competant, attentive and fun, the food features unique rolls and dishes I haven't seen at other bars and the... More

I've been here 5-6 times. The sushi is always excellent. They aren't as creative as the high end sushi places but always fresh and delicious.

This is the best sushi place around. It isn't the cheapest but the fish/food is always super fresh and the service is fast and friendly. On Mondays they have several rolls that are 50% off. Needless to say that makes Mondays extremely busy so the wait can easily be an hour or more.

Stopped in here because Trip Advisor recommended it and we are glad we did. Staff is friendly, place is clean, and food was amazing. We sat at the sushi bar and the chef was awesome and friendly. I recommend the dragon roll! But we had 3 rolls and they were all equally amazing. We will be returning!

For our farewell lunch we went to the Sushi Lounge. I typically don't care much for sushi, but the Lounge ' s expansive menu offered a wealth of diverse options that satisfied everyone in our party of five, including me. All the dishes were fine, and our waitress -- informative and helpful and attentive -- was wonderful.
