The restaurant was extremely dark. It made reading the menu difficult. The cocktails were just ok. We were surprised the sushi was room temperature. Isn't sushi suppose to be served cool? I had great hopes for this place. What a let down.

Super fun place to grab sushi and sake before going out! Definitely dress up before because the atmosphere is like a clubby restaurant. Definitely worth going to!

Great food! The service a bit slow at the end. We ordered dessert and it took to bring it to the table.

If you like to eat on a stool in a wide-open dark room with loud music, you'd love this place.
There are better places around the city if you focus on food.

We came here for my birthday celebration dinner. We were seated in the side room which I had previously called to make sure we were in the main room, with all the action! We spoke to the hostess, who passed on to the manager, Jimmy, that I was not a happy bday girl. Jimmy immediately took care of the misunderstanding, moved our entire dinner party and made sure we, and I were specifically, were taken care of.

Hands down - 10 stars to Jimmy alone! Thanks for everything! Fun place!!

Wanted to eat inside of restaurant, not the bar area. Bar area forced us to fend off people wanting to sit at our table that we reserved. Music got louder and could not chat with friends as easily after 11pm.

Food was fantastic. Our server was lovely. Not the place you'd want to go if you're looking to have more of an intimate conversation. Though it is a fantastic place to go if you're looking to start your night before hitting up gas lamp. Wish I would have taken more pictures of the food to share but after the first bite of the wings we couldn't wait to try the rest of what we ordered.

The food was great (super fresh shutoro and otoro). The prices are pretty reasonable the ambiance is very lively. I have to say the service at times was very slow and as much as I enjoy dim lights, here they went a bit too far.

Our reservation was for 7:30 PM, we were running late due to the fact that we couldn’t find parking. Parking is a problem downtown San Diego. We called to let them know we’re running late, they were very courteous and said they will keep our table for us. We arrived went upstairs checked in. We got a table right away, the server was a fantastic amazing server .
She recommended some dishes for us since it was our first time. Food arrived the portions were perfect, love the place love the food. We were so excited we called for the manager and gave them a fantastic feedback. Recommend attending this particular restaurant.

Great food and atmosphere! Only thing that could’ve been a little better was the service. Waiter was friendly but manager came over and asked us to leave since we had been there for 2 hours and people were waiting. We had been waiting to receive checks for at least 30-45 mins before being asked to leave.

This is my second time returning to Bang Bang. We sat at the sushi bar, where Joey was out sushi chef. The quality of the sushi was amazing. Joey really knows his stuff!! We had his specialty roll, the "Mermaid Booty," which is the best roll I have had to date. Also tried the sea urchin roe for the first time - amazing. Can wait to come back here soon,
