21 & up
On our sold out show nights, we have a $25 per person minimum for dinner reservations.
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!
Great experience! Drinks are great and it’s the perfect spot to get all your instagram worthy pics!
Service was super slow. Server was nice and apologetic but still very slow.
Kyle was the best...!!! Great ambience and you can meet out of town gems!
Very fun but waaaay too loud! We could not even talk to each other during dinner so that was a bummer.
Love Bang Bang! Always a great experience. Best sushi in SD. Best music all around
Food was delicious, and the service was awesome! Fun spot, fun lighting, great drinks. I'll be back.
Really fun for a bachelorette party! Very clubby vibe
Good service, yummy sushi and very good fish bowl drinks
Bang Bang is definitely is a gem. My friends and I went for my bachelorette dinner party and the vibe was off slammin'! Our server, Kyle, was amazing and hooked it up with the extra ginger. We loved the Ryan Gosling bathroom.
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!
Fun lively restaurant, had a great party atmosphere, perfect for a bachelorette party of 12. Lots of IG worthy photo opps. Service was super friendly and attentive. Drinks were tasty, menu was cute and delish!
Fantastic place to bring a group of people! Great energy and food!
Amazing service and great sushi! This place is super original! Happy Bday Bang Bang🥂
add visuals! change your visuals! the dance floor is so cool and you have such good djs but other than the discoball, the atmosphere is lame/ always the same!
The food was okay but the service was horrible. We saw our server twice in the whole night.
Saw a great DJ there. The restaurant temp. was a little too chilly, food was good, our waitress was great.
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.
Super fun vibes. Service was great, food was excellent! Perfect spot to celebrate my birthday. The lantern room was hot so we asked to move into the disco ball room where the ac and music was blasting! So fun for our large group🎉 Would totally go again
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.
Food was tasty, service was beyond amazing, such a cute a fun design!
Great food, outstanding service, and fantastic ambiance!
Food was great. Atmosphere is awesome.
Bang Bang has always been a regular favorite of mine. Little hidden gem
in downtown with the best sushi in 92101.
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.
We were not seated until 10 PM, for a 9:15 reservation.
Nice atmosphere, but very dark. Food value was good. The presentation was great! Our service was very good. It was our first stop based on a recommendation for our “food tour” of gaslamp. We enjoyed ourselves.
We had a blast. From the first moments, you know that you're in a restaurant specializing in atmosphere because you have to walk upstairs as if you're entering an NYC subway. Our server was super patient and attentive. Loved the choices available, and we happened to be there during happy hour when a lot of great rolls and appetizers were 50% off. All the food was tasty.
Food was awesome, as usual, But the place fairly pretentious. More than usual. The bouncer downstears said couldnt find my name on his reservations list so I wouldnt be able to come in at all. It was only after good 10 mins of insistance, showing my OpenTable app AND my confirmation email that he allowed to get in. Place was not so full for dinner. Maybe at 50% so dont know why so picky. Inside they wanted to give me a table not on the main area, even while empty tables were available. It took politely asking several times if they could double check for them to accept giving me one of the "good ones".
Ambience is nice and food is great, but I dont see why they are making it so hard when the place is not evem full. Certainly it did get crowded past 11pm for the club, but at that time kitchen is closed already, so it shouldnt matter for people going there earlier for dinner.
Energetic, trendy hot spot for a fabulous sushi meal. The service was top shelf and menu selections were huge. Our server, Kristen, guided us through and we paced ourselves. Although my husband isn’t fond of raw fish, the kitchen accommodated his palate by searing some of his choices and he left quite happy. Although the main dining room was very dark and loud they also have a smaller, more traditional dining area where you could watch the chefs prep the rolls and plates. Fun experience.
Great place to go for dinner before hitting up the club scene in San Diego!
My husband and I came for dinner before a DJ set and were very pleased. The service was great and the quality of the sushi was excellent. We shared an appetizer and sashimi sampling. All the fish was delicious and we even tried a new fish (to us). Great way to start our evening!
Loved it! Perfect bachelorette event ;) THANKS SO MUCH
Food was good but it was dark and extremely loud. Not a great atmosphere to try to talk.
Bang bang is always a solid choice. One of the best sushi spots in downtown. Great rolls, high quality fish, great service.
The food and service were both great! Our server (Kyle) was super friendly and attentive. Definitely recommend!
Waited over an 1 1/2 hours for our expensive boat is sushi (which wasn’t that great). Kept asking for more plates and utensils since we had a party of six and never received, shared chopsticks with my hubby. Waitress never checked on us for more drinks. By the time we got our food she pretty much dropped off our check and told us to get our own drinks at the bar because the dinning area was closing. Really wanted to like the place but wish there was better service.
