Really enjoyed this restaurant as mixing Mexican and Japanese is certainly not something you see everyday. The sushi was very fresh and a nice variety available, we got the ten piece appetizer to get a great variety to start. For dinner we chose the two tacos plate (one pork, one beef) and the fish bowl which had more sushi - did not disappoint us. Service was great, Cheyenne was very personable and attentive. The margarita’s were very tasty, but were pretty small given the price - this was the only negative we had and not enough to make a difference. Love the ambience of the restaurant as it is small and very inviting and lively. Highly recommend if you are looking for a different experience!

Superb quality seafood, friendly enthusiastic, professional service, warm, inviting atmosphere. My teenage children and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and lunch the following day at Mesu. Service is impeccable and the seafood is the highest quality we have ever had.

Great drinks from Japanese sake to homemade margaritas! Warm and spiced tortillas with guacamole tell you more good it coming! The Tuna Tower Poke bowl as fabulous as was the lobster sushi roll. The tacos were slightly less admirable as the fish taco needed more fish and the mushroom taco would have been better executed with portobello mushroom. The street corn was nicely flavorful. Food we saw passing by was elegant and makes you want to go back (which we WILL!). Our server Mike was attentive and amusing. The churros dessert comes in a skull mug with a side of chocolate sauce. Yum! The atmosphere is hip, streetwise and fun. Definitely worth it! GO!

Would not recommend the chips. I think they tried to hard to make them special when simple is better.
Tacos were fabulous!

The drinks were very small. The food was very limited. The bartender was not good. I can’t recommend this place. Bad vibe. Drunk crowd.

When you can’t pick between Mexican and Japanese, this is the spot to go! Food was excellent and service was some of the best I’ve had at any restaurant! Highly recommend the chip and dip trio. And the clothespin tacos are everything they were hyped up to be!

I went with a friend to check out this place it has only been open for 10 days apparently. They open at 4 p.m. and we arrived earlier than our reservation 600pm (645pm) so there were only two other tables in there & 2 girls up at the bar. My friend had their house Margarita on happy hour and I had their specialty sangria made with sake and tequila with jalapeno and fruit juices- both of the drinks were delicious! We shared an order of the beef barbacoa clothespin tacos- They were Great!!! We also ordered the spicy ahi tuna sushi which was fabulous. She had the shrimp and chorizo Taco which she loved and I had the Baja Fish Taco which was so so. The ambience is cute with art and three different TV screens showing anime. Our service was outstanding & the staff was incredibly friendly! I sure hope this place stays as I will return. PS at this time they also offer 10% off all food during happy hour which was a bonus!

The shrimp & chorizo tacos and clothespin tacos are amazing. The Rangoon and rainbow roll were okay, not bad just not fabulous in terms of sushi. The staff was friendly and we were seated at the time of our reservation and waited no more than 15 minutes for food. The music was pretty loud and it was hard to hear someone across the table. Great artwork! Can’t wait to come back and try all the other tacos!!

Great margaritas and sushi. Great service. Would have liked a side with the fish tacos for the price but otherwise a great meal.

It’s a small place so when people are hanging at the bar they crowd around your table. However our only complaint is that our entrees came out at different times which means one person is eating so their food doesn’t get cold while the other person is waiting for their meal. The restaurant has only been open a short time and this is something that needs to be addressed. The food is very good and reasonably priced, the decor is fun and we will be back

Mesu is a wonderful addition to King Street! It is a beautiful space with a fun atmosphere and great food. The Duck Confit Spring Rolls and Tuna Poke Tower were two of our favorite things that we tried. I thought the prices we very reasonable and I'm looking forward to going back and trying more things on the menu.
