About

Sushi Mambo has the best in Japanese cuisine and it is located right in the heart of Calistoga, CA in the Napa Valley. The eatery was established in 1997 and it offers many different styles of sushi. Diners can find traditional sushi options on the menu, as well as new and interesting types of sushi. The owner and operator of Sushi Mambo, Jose Cazares, apprenticed in Japantown in San Francisco before opening up his restaurant.

Sushi Mambo has a fun atmosphere to go along with the great food. Some of the hits on the menu include salmon skin rolls, spicy tuna rolls, avocado rolls and even tempura fried ice cream for dessert.

I am from NYC so I did not expect to find such a great Japanese restaurant in Napa. The only reason we went there is because our kids love Asian food but I am so glad we stopped by. Rolls were really delicious and we also were impressed by their Ramen noodles. Broth was very flavorful. If you are craving Japanese food in Napa, this is the place to go!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a couple locals. Small place, but great menu and the food was delicious! Really got busy later in the evening, so must be a popular venue!

This was our first visit to Sushi Mambo, and our experience was positive. The sushi was excellent: very fresh and tasty. The restaurant is located in a beautiful old building in a trendy neighborhood. Our waiter was efficient and friendly. A large error was made on our check which, luckily, we caught. It was corrected with apologies. We will return to Sushi Mambo for the very good sushi!

Been going for years - food is still fun and innovative.
Our server still needs time to feel really comfortable with customers who aren't as young and hip as she.
Wasn't afraid to make suggestions so she noes the menu very well.

We came here for my husband's birthday with his parents and our 3-month-old (in his stroller). Already we didn't get the sense that having dinner there was appropriate for our "party" so we advise coming here with colleagues, or other adults due to the noise level and clientele that waltzes in at night. If I had come with the girls or my husband for some sushi & sake, then I'd be singing a different tune.

Aside from the somewhat comically-named dishes, every item we ordered was simply amazing! Quite notably was the "Cheese So Beautiful" that my husband still raves about to this day. Their sashimi was gorgeously prepared and fresh beyond my experience. Even their sukiyaki and bento box were delicious.

Highly recommended so hurry and eat!

We have had the same server and Chef almost every time we go. We were greeted promptly, had drinks and appetizers within just a couple minutes of our arrival. Sushi took a bit longer but nothing unusual considering that some of the rolls are cooked and how busy it was for just having 2 workers The chef Eric is great, skillfully made, quality food and fast. Our waiter Ben was knowledgable, funny and very composed especially considering that the place was almost full. We couldn't believe how efeciantly these guys worked. Will defenitely be back soon. Bravo!

Really good, fresh, well-prepared sushi at a very reasonable price and the service was excellent: friendly and professional. It's going to be on my list of regular lunch spots from now on.
