This is a great place to have an evening out with your child(ren). As a graduate student at USF, I would pick up my son from his preschool and we would relax in the serene, peaceful atmosphere of Balboa Sushi House before we make our way to our Pacifica home. We've been going there for the past five years and it has become a special place for my son and me. Not only is the food well portioned and reasonably priced, the service is genuine and sincere. Having an active and energetic son, it was amazing what the environment did for the both of us. We would walk in with the sounds of water, luscious greenery, fish in unique bowls, classical music playing.....My son would walk through the resturaunt looking at all the details or he would grab a book near the bathroom to look at as we waited for our food. My son is now nine and after a recent visit, I was reminded on how special and wonderful this place is to us. We were in massive Friday traffic, hungry, and grumpy. After a quick decision to eat sushi at our favorite place, we enjoyed our meal with a quiet and calm conversation, reflected on the scenery of the resturaunt, and caught up with our kind friend (the waitress....I don't know her name). We left feeling content, peaceful, and fully satisfied. I highly recommend this place for quality Japanese food, wonderful service, and a peaceful environment. Parking can be a pain, but the #5 and #31 are convenient bus routes.
Pros: Service, price, portions, quality, and convenient to bus routes,
