AMAZING! The BEST! 7/1/2010

This is how you can tell real sushi fanatics from the wanna-bes... If they go to Ota's and order "Omakase", this is someone who has a discriminating pallet and knows their Sushi. If they try o order a California roll or spicy tuna, well.... If you sit at the bar (make sure to get ressies in advance!), and order the Omakase menu, you will never be dissappointed! The Chefs will ask you what you like and don't like, and then they'll put course after course in front of you. You'll have the best experience, and get the freshest, melt-in-your-mouth fish! Ota imports seasonal fish in from Japan, and they have LIVE Ama-ebi, not frozen, LIVE- you can't get fresher than that! If you sit at a table, the service may be a little slow, they get really crowded. I've heard people complain from the tables before. I don't think I've ever seen anyone at the bar complain though. One thing, you really have to put those reservations in in advance, otherwise the regulars will have them. Also, another little tip, if you're sitting at the bar, you'll get the best service if you are the last seating 9 or 9:30. Then there's no pressure to turn over the table for the next seating, so you can take your time and enjoy the exquisite tastes! more

The real deal for sashimi 12/6/2006

Don't let the location of this place fool you. Located in the nook of a strip mall may not sound too appetizing but Sushi Ota is one of the best Japanese restaurants I have ever been to for fresh ample cuts of sashimi and sushi. The place is considered a good price for high quality sushi...not a good deal for fish. You can't expect to get fresh raw fish for a good deal...those restaurants offering deals for sushi that are suspiciously too low are the ones I tend to avoid. The atmosphere is clean and casual and sports a large sushi bar that surrounds the chefs. Omakase is the deal breaker here and I think it is a great price for what you get. If usually it is too pricey for you, then check out the lunch specials at noon. On the weekends, you best make reservations for dinner because the place is usually jammed packed. HIghly recommended establishment. more

Great Japanese place 8/21/2005

This place is great. The food is fresh and good quality. I recommend people who like Japanese food to come here. The price is allright for Japanese food. It is located in the corner, you might find it hard to find but it is in a complex right on the corner. more

Sushi Ota 8/5/2005

This is the place for sushi in San Diego. Not only is it the place to be for sushi but it is probably the best restaurant in the city. If you can speak japanese at all be sure to use it and order anything you desire, even if it is not on the menu. They will definitely accomodate. The atmosphere is casual. The cost is not very expensive. more

Great Japanese crusine 8/4/2005

My wife's family is Japanese.. and hence they are pretty picky about their sushi when they go out to eat. This place is so far the only place where they will return to eat sushi. If you go.. look around, the place is pretty much filled with Japanese families and business man. This pretty much shows how authenitic this place is. It's semi-pricy.. but the quality is great. reservations rquired, I would not even go without one. They post their specials on the wall so don't miss it. more
