I ordered Toro and it was not good. I ordered some chefs custom shrimp tempura roll. I waited around 20 minutes because two chefs work hard to try serve other customers. I thought if you sit in bar you should not wait so long. The roll was nothing special, just shrimp tempura roll. Beer was warm too. They have website much better then restaurant itself.
Some good, some lacking.
My wife and I loved the salads and the braised greens and the basic nigiri items were top notch. When I asked the server about food items, he indicated he "didn't eat fish" and "never had alcohol" so couldn't advise on an of the food or wine selections. We had a "special" roll called the "Brain" and it was disappointing. Too much Krab.

Was surprised on the overall evening. The quality and creativity of the food was excellent. Loved how fresh all of the sushi tasted. A fun casual progressive place with high quality reliable dishes. Was a little noisy due to sitting directly under a speaker where music was playing but didn't ruin the experience. Definitely returning in hopes of becoming a regular.

This is one of my favorite restaurants, ever. To call it a sushi restaurant is to do a disservice, because it is so much more than just sushi. It's a very inventive creative menu comma with extremely fresh ingredients from both the farm and sea. Trust me, just try this place.
We didn't know what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised with the awesome friendly service and delicious sashimi :) We got a fun seat at the sushi bar and got to appreciate all of the beautiful sushi going out, and even got some mini samples...awesome! We will definitely be back.
Great night, food is amazing so different!
Everything is cooked fresh and so tasty, I had the Wahoo it melted in your mouth !My husband had the steak tips, on fresh veggies, he loved it.
Great atmosphere, Nice staff and its lovely decorated.
We will be back!
Really creative sushi!
A really outstanding hole in the wall restaurant in Oceanside. The fish and other ingredients were incredibly fresh and tasty. Very creative and unorthodox menu for sushi and sashimi. We went with the "Chef's Choice" and the waitress would bring dishes one after another. Each new dish was a pleasant and unexpectedly creative surprise. EVERYTHING was delicious and the price was reasonable.
Great Sushi ok im a sushi snob
Im a sushi snob and i can't enjoy sushi at most americanized sushi bars with deep fried rolls and spicy mayo sauce.
This place is a fusion of authentic sushi and gourmet flavors and sauces. The only complaint. No full bar. Location. This place is actually very reasonable but they could do so much better in del mar la costa etc. More $$$ Despite the full bar I will be back. My wife said its the best sushi she has had> it was among the top for me too. Next time I am trying the chefs tasting menu.
Wonderful, unique dining experience.
Celebrated hubby's birthday and had a great time. Cool vibe. Very fresh, very well prepared food. Loved the Del Mar, Hedgehog, and Wet Brain, as well as the duck fat carrots, and the ceviche. Had a lovely wine to pair with it. The cheesecake was decadent. Will definitely be back.
Another good find in downtown Oceanside
Had heard so much about this place so we decided to give it a try. To be honest when we walked it I was taken a bit back at the "rustic" deco. With all the new "hip and trendy" places in Oceanside I was expecting something different. We were seated at a VERY small table and were both still unsure of our choice for dining. Since we were so close to the people next to us we started chatting with them and they said the food we great and they made suggestions. We tried the special of the carrots cooked in duck fat with Chimi Churi sauce - fabulous! We had three rolls - Cronic - Mango and Wet Brain. Cronic not my favorite - Mango really good and Wet Brain was great. A family sat at the table on the other side - and once again since everything is so close we shared what we liked and struck up a great conversation with them. They shared their Del Mar roll with us and it was very good. Another great example of not judging a book by it's cover. We will be going back.
A delightful experience awaits anyone who loves sushi/sashimi. The selections are not the standard rolls and raw fish that most sushi restaurants offer, although they do have that. Their creations are remarkable and require NO soy sauce. We (5 of us) went omakase, giving them our dietary limits and they did the rest. My only complaint and that is a minor one, is they were able to bring the food out a bit quicker than we were ready for, but we still to enjoyed it all. Friendly service...small establishment so reservations are suggested. Not inexpensive (a bit more than most sushi restaurants) but you get what you pay for and it was worth it. I will be back!!!
