I LOVED IT SO MUCH HERE. We went to celebrate my cousin’s bachelorette! Cute picture opportunities and even better food! I can’t wait to come back. Wish I did my research ahead of time to see that it was Techno night, since it’s not my favorite kind of music. But regardless, such a great night! Also shout out to Nicole, our waitress, she was so nice and left a great impression! Thank you!

We made a reservation a week and advance and when we arrived we were told we could only stay for 1.5 hours because they were busy ( yes that's why we made a reservation) we needed to speak to the manager and after that the problem was solved and the waitress was awesome! I love Bang Bang just wish the music was a little lower as the night progresses in the dining area.

Service was fast and friendly, or large group had all its needs accommodated. Place was loud, but to be expected for a New Years Eve club-like ambiance. Transferring from dinner over to the show was seamless and a great night for all!

After checking in with the hostess and getting seated in the almost empty restaurant, we sat for a solid 20 minutes and did not have a single member of their staff come to our table or even walk by. We decided to leave and passed right by the hostess and she wouldn’t even make eye contact. It’s a shame because we used to come here every visit to San Diego.

I've been to bang bang to see a DJ, but I had no idea it was a Japanese restaurant as well. Went there for a date night and loved it! Ambiance was great and it was fun and different than most places. Definitely recommend!

Had some good friends in town and took them to Bang Bang. The experience was amazing from the beginning. Starting with a warm welcome from the hostess emily, who was able to accommodate last minute extra guest. To the server who never let a drink go empty and timed out the meal perfectly. I would recommend this place to everyone looking for a fun and entertaining night. The sushi is great and the service will bring you back!

Took 16 of my daughters girlfriends for her 23rd birthday. Great party food menu and drinks.
The sushi was amazing, my only 'complaint' is that it could have had a bit more lighting so we could see what we were eating... we will definitely be back! We had an amazing time!

Why did it get 1 star?

We did not eat here. Why? We sat down, were immediately given headaches by the hello kitty night club vibes and said "no".

Asked if we could sit by the sushi bar and they said "no", the AC is broken. The other side of the restaurant was the the only half decent looking area of the restaurant and it was closed because of the AC.

The few customers in there were tools and the wait staff was pushy.

Walked down the block to sushi lounge and loved our meal there. This place was an actual joke. I want sushi, not a strobe light in a dark room where I can't even see my food.

Really glad I took my money elsewhere and so was my date. (brownie points for calling this crap out for what it was and LEAVING before ordering a drink.)

Really a shame because the sushi menu "looked" good.

The ambiance was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. We were there for happy hour and were contemplating ordering more food when a server came up to us and told us there was a 2 hour maximum and we had to go. I could understand this if the place was packed but there were literally 7 empty tables around us and more than half the bar was open.

Bang Bang was very tasty and the sushi party roll boat with impressively affordable and delicious. I wasn't a huge fan of how loud the music was in the dining area. It was hard to talk and the DJ was kind of weird the night we went. There were people on the dance floor but it wasn't lit.

The food and service here was amazing! you will not be disappointed. There were at least four other groups here who were celebrating, however our food still came out pretty fast. The only downfall was that we came with a huge group and we wanted to split the tab by per couples, but they didn't have that option. Everything had to be on one tab, so at the end figuring out the cost and split was time consuming on our end.

If you like sushi you need to try this place. It is in a great location in the Gas Lamp district. However, sent them a private note on something they should fix and received no reply. So, I have revised my review and downgraded the service rating. The server was very good. Management, not so much for not replying on an important issue.
