Not mind-blowing (apart from their pricing) but I'd recommend the Carne Asada and Protein rolls.
Happy Hour all day Saturdays! :-) Try the oyster trio, beef skewers and Hawaiian roll!
by Sara R.
Great place for sushi and sashimi! Try the eel roll and the soft shell crab roll!
Get the raw oyster trio for $5, each with a different dressing. Delicious!
Try the fried calamari!
Romantic sushi restaurant
The crunchy sushi was really delicious and I added salmon on top for $4 more. The bartender was really friendly and helpful. Wine was great. Really great experience all around.
by @SocialSweet S.
The sushi here is great. The best roll is the dragon roll, although you can't go wrong with the pizza roll or rainbow roll either.
by Moe D.
Diver scallops, miso butter fish, short ribs, all delicious! Excellent choice

If you've got a date with a special someone, they can have flowers delivered to the table. Oh, and the shrimp tempura roll with a soy wrapper is amazing.
by Maggie C.
Sunday night they have "Tengu Sushi Club" at the sushi bar, great frequent diner program. It's a fun promotion, I won a $150 gift card twice already!

Very expensive. Food is not that impressive (compared to our usual Japanese fusion AYC in Vegas). Plus they have chicken Katsu on their menu and doesn't know know Katsu sauce is. Weird.

Love the Fried Bananas for dessert!

Too Expensive, rolls aren't impressive, not to mention the small selection. Miso soup was ok but this costal sushi joint named "best sushi in CA" doesn't hold a candle to my hometown Blue Sushi in NE
