This is not my favorite sushi restaurant in Santa Cruz (that would be Shogun), but it's close to home and the sushi is ok. The photos on the wall are amusing but the music is WAY TOO LOUD.

We went by on a very stunning trip from Carmel-by-the-Sea back to Sausalito to have a quick meal on the way. What a cute eatery with "thousands" of polaroid pics which covered the walls. Very friendly service and delicious sushi!

I go to this sushi place every time I'm in Santa Cruz, which is pretty often. The food is great, perfect rice to fish ratio, and the soup is great. Although the music can be a little loud and annoying (crappy pop music) the employees...More

This sushi joint is away from downtown (in a mini-strip mall on Mission) and tiny, but almost always full. The food is very good - we usually get the bento box - and very fresh. The teriyaki is especially good, as is the sashimi option...More
