Delicious Japanese Cuisine served from the heart.
Staying at a hotel nearby and this restaurant was walking distance. Thank goodness we decided to be lazy and eat here. We were very very satisfied with our food. It was one of the better authentic Korean food we ever had! I eat a lot of Korean food in NYC and this place was better than a lot of places in the city. Not only was the food delicious, but the service was impeccable. They were all so friendly and made sure we had everything we need.
We first started out with Kimchi/seafood pancakes and my boyfriend and I both agree, one of the best kimchi pancakes we ever had! It was golden crispy with the perfect spice level. It was full of kimchi, chunky seafood (shrimp/octopus and others) and lots of scallions - just the way we like it!
For my main meal, I ordered the chicken cutlet and my boyfriend ordered the Korean short rib BBQ. We also ordered spicy scallop rolls. Our meal came with miso soup - delicious, side salad (not sure what kind of dressing but it was sweet and tangy, just yummy), my chicken was golden crispy and the portion was huge. I couldn't finish it all so I got a box to go and the waitress was nice enough to give me a whole new side of rice.
The Korean short rib BBQ was perfectly marinated and it also came with a side of rice and salad and miso. He absolutely devoured the whole plate. The waitress also gave him the side of lettuce and his favorite Korean spicy dipping sauce to make into a lettuce wrap. The wrap combination was in my boyfriend's words "was as good as any Korean BBQ places we have been to." Highly recommend it.
At the end, they brought us a plate of fruit (oranges, apples and Korean pear) which was a nice way to finish off the meal.
Highly highly recommend this place if you are in the area and craving Korean/Japanese food. If we ever come back to this area, we will definitely be coming back!Mia W. New York, NY
This place is Mission Beach's/San Diego's best-kept secret! Food is great, the staff is the best, and very reasonable prices. We go here all the time - and we love everything. We usually get the sushi but their Korean foods are great too!
Great sushi, awesome staff, and prices that can't be beaten in Mission Beach! We eat here all the time and love it. Haven't tried a sushi roll that we don't like 🙂 Chicken teriyaki is going to as well 🙂
We love all the rolls (Temptation and Mango Salmon are among the favorites, but they're all good).
Don't worry about the complaints about parking. Yes, the restaurant's lot is small but there's a (free) public parking lot right across the street. It can be difficult to find parking anywhere in Mission Beach in the summer -- just a testament to the awesome location!!! 🙂 Take for instance the great views of the bay, roller coaster and SeaWorld fireworks from the restaurant.George S.

Awesome sushi! We had the Adrian roll, mission bay roll, yellowtail jalapeño roll, and a seaweed salad. Everything was great. The yellowtail jalapeño roll was so yummy and the seaweed salad was perfect. The staff was amazing. We ordered to go and they weren't quite ready yet (our fault, not theirs), so they gave us tea and oranges while we waited. The man behind the counter making the sushi joked with us while the woman that rang us up made us feel welcomed and comfortable.Katie S. San Diego, CA
