    This is the place for traditional sushi-both nigiri and sashimi. Fresh, flavorful, generous slices. The rice texture is perfect, the nori is high quality, and the fish was delicious. We chose Asahi beer because we felt the choice of sake prices were on the high side. Otherwise we really enjoyed our meal!

    We went to Sushi Ota for our 29th anniversary. We ordered Omakase, Chef Kaz was excellent! We loved everything he made! I used to go there often with friends 30 years ago, then I moved to North County, and got busy with family. Now kids have grown, we will return to visit Sushi Ota often.

    This was highly recommended to us for dinner. I made a reservation, and the restaurant lost it. Luckily I had the confirmation of the reservation. That was the only glitch. Once we were seated and eating, the food was outstanding, fresh and just a delight.

    First time dining at Sushi Ota and was impressed. Cozy atmosphere, intimate setting, and of course the food was delicious. Great variety and options to choose from. Choice of specials can be sushi or sashimi style. If you are considering Sushi Ota you must try Wagu beef!

    Food was good but the rice in the nigiri didn’t taste fresh which ruined the experience a bit.

    The staff was wonderful in accommodating a hard of hearing 95 year old woman and a birthday guy by putting us in a place that was easy in and out, I so appreciate their kindness and the superb service by Joseph. The food is always delicious!
