During a visit to San Diego we just need a light lunch. I had seen the sign and found this little almost hidden place. We were rewarded as they had just bought some Blue Fin Tuna belly. It was rich and simply wonderful. We also had some sushi and seaweed salad. We are so happy we played a hunch.

The restaurant is a bit unimpressive on the outside but the inside is cozy. The staff helped me learn more about the many forms of sushi. I ventured from my safe place, California Roll, to calamari tempura. I still like mine cooked. I loved it and I recommend you trying this restaurant. The world news and beer are very reasonably...

The place is on Rosecrans Ave in San Diego. It is an OK place. If you want Japanese food and is a strict vegetarian, this place may pose some difficulty in terms of what they can have for you on their menu. I went in because my hubby was hungry and it was the closest place to us during lunch... More

We enjoy lunch at Tsuruya Sushi because it provides a large selection of Japanese food in a very central location with easy parking. They have a lot of booths so we always feel a sense of privacy. During our last visit, my wife enjoyed a beef teriyaki bento box. We were hpppy to learn that they offered Takara umeshu, plum... More

We stopped here at the end of the day, on our last day in California. We were OK with the food. It wasn't FANTASTIC, but it wasn't HORRIBLE. The sushi was OK. The calamari was done to perfection, though. We really enjoyed that. Our waitress was quick enough to take our order, but we waited forever for our bill and... More

The restaurant is a short walk from the Hampton Inn, staff is very welcoming and friendly. The food was excellent and the price was reasonable.

We chose Tsuruya Sushi for lunch because it was on Rosecrans and there was clearly enough parking available. We discovered that the restaurant was well laid out, quiet, and comfortable. There were pictures of cranes on the wall in our area (tsuru means crane). The food was fresh and quite delicious. We had agedashi tofu, a caterpillar sushi with unagi... More

I've eaten at about 10-12 different sushi places in San Diego and came across this place by accident during lunchtime one day. The location is odd and parking is tight but with 50% off sushi specials and drink deals, you won't believe the tastiness you're having is less than $30 for two people!!

I'll start by saying I don't eat sushi at all, but when you're outnumbered 6 to 1, you go with the group. I had the spicy chicken dinner entree and it was very good. All my friends enjoyed the sushi and the service was pretty good. All in all, I walked in not wanting to be there and left feeling... More
