Diner Reviews
  • "I've been to this restaurant many times about 20 years ago. I loved it then and it's still just as great! The sushi is always very fresh and the menu is so varied, so much to choose from. I highly recommend this restaurant and will contnue coming back."

  • "Second time here in a month. Great service, comfortable big tables. Hot towel, the whole nine yards. Bizarre sized glasses for beverages. More like tubes. Good selection of rolls, sashimi, and single fish sushi. Nothing too way out there. Same stuff with some different names. Good non sushi menu as well. Price can get up there, but a lot of that has to do with what/how much you order."

  • "I really like this place. Ambience is great and and customers seem to be having fun. Food is outstanding I had an opportunity to speak with the owner and he was very nice and very accommodative. One thing that I really enjoyed about this place that you dont see a lot of riffraff people going there. I would definitely recommend it for couples or families."

  • "Service was very good once seated. But we were told to arrive early which we did, and then we had to wait almost an hour before being seated, and no one made any attempt to offer anything while we waited. ON VALENTINE'S DAY! Someone should have at least said that there was a longer wait and offer an apology. I would recommend this restaurant for service, food was good, but not worth the wait."

  • "Quick and easy reservations made online... prompt seating and thorough and courteous waitstaff."

  • "From the complete chaos in at the parking valet to the disappointing sushi, Teru did not meet my expectations. While the wait staff was attentive, the overall quality of the sushi was a little mushy and over sauced. I much prefer Asenebo across the street, although their prices are very high."

  • "We have been here a number of times. The food is consistent and good. Ambiance has a nice relaxed vibe, and the restaurant is largely small booths...very comfy relative to most Japanese places. This time, they sat us in the back, which means you catch the cigarette smoke drifting in from their back patio and smoking area. That made it unpleasant for us, but it's the first time we had this problem. The service is hit or miss though, and tends to be poor when it's busy (weekends). Overall, a good Sushi option."

  • "Go ahead and save yourself the extra step of making a reservation. Upon checking in at the hostess stand and telling them you have a reservation, you'll simply be thrown to the side with the other "walk in" diners. Then, after 40 minutes of waiting, they'll seat you at the busy sushi bar where you'll have to turn awkwardly to talk to your date. Save yourself the time and simply walk in and wait or better yet, don't go to dinner here on a weekend night."

  • "Excellent food and service, except for the fact that we ordered soup first, which they served but immediately after they brought the main courses so they had to sit while we were having the soup so it wouldn't get cold (in the meantime, the mains cooled off)."

  • "Nice back patio-good for a large group. Beware though- they allow smoking in the back patio. Although, we were not bothered by the smokers- it could be bothersome if they are sitting close. Service was slow and not very friendly. Food was fair to good."

  • "We were so disappointed with the food. First time and will not be back. The quality was below par from the tea to the edamame, tempura and worst of all the sushi platter. Having been around since 1979, we just cannot believe it. If they want to charge the high end price, they should step up on the quality."

  • "Been coming here for years, and it's still a blast. Nice vibe, nice energy, tables of different sizes, good for a comfy romantic date. Still the coolest place for date night sushi on Ventura."
