Decided to celebrate my graduation at Bang Bang. It was my first time there and I thought the place was great. My food was delicious. Some hiccups during dinner, but the server did everything he could to make things right.

I had high expectations of BangBang based on what I read about it before making reservations for 8 ppl last Fri April 19th. The place and the food really lived up to its hype. We had a BLAST! Highly recommended!

Had a group of 11 guys on a bachelor and eating dinner here was probably the highlight of the whole weekend in San Diego. Just the best atmosphere you could hope for before taking on the night.

Love this "Kill Bill" themed restaurant with amazing food and extremely delicious drinks. The sashimi platter was fine tuned for our Wedding Anniversary needs and was AMAZING!!! And make sure you take the time to go to the restrooms (male and female) to check out the cool wallpapers! We will definitely be back to try other food items and different drinks. Thank you again for a wonderful evening!

Going with my daughter to explore SDSU, and decided to go get some sushi. Went to Bang Bang for the reviews, and left in love of the restaurant and the food. The restaurant is very hip and modern, great music playing. The sushi was fresh and awesome. I would recommend the sashimi plate, warm crab rolls, and their signature bang bang roll.

Recently had a date night here and we had the best time. The atmosphere and service were great, definite party vibe. We ordered a couple of rolls and the chicken wings to share (chicken wings were my favorite). I believe they have dancing but we didn't stick around for that.

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.
