Ogawashi has a fantastic and large selection of sushi choices. The menu does contain entrées, appetizers, and other food choices as well; however, come for the sushi. As might be expected, the sushi preparations are well prepared and are a delight to look at. Pricing...More

My family ate the food so fast, this was the best I could get for pictures. We came on a Monday night, and it was on the quiet side. Great for us! We had very attentive service and the owner gave us traditional Korean Service....More

My waitress was new, and not sure what she was doing, which wasn't really her fault, and a more senior member of staff criticising her in front of customers wasn't very professional. The sushi was good but not great, and not worth the price. The...More

Tried the assorted fish poke and found it enjoyable, very fresh and delicious. Service could improve. There was only one waitress who not only seat you, she also manned the till, bartend and serve you. Place needs to invest in more servers.

Came to this place for a relatively late night dinner based on reviews and how close it was to our hotel. Sadly this was one of the poorest dining experiences we've had in San Diego. The sushi was fine, no issues with the food. Unfortunately...More

Came by for an early dinner. The sushi rolls are huge and delicious. Happy Hour gets you a specialty roll for $10. My friend has the Yakisoba Bulgogi budt he only gave it a 6 out of 10. Hot sake is very good.

I only have been here for lunch several times and its a hassle to get in eat and get out in an hour. Service is really slow. Takes forever to get your check and for the waiters to come back. Food is good.
