They take reservations! And they honor them! Considering the size of this place (it is small), that can be a real plus on a busy weekend.

The menu is extensive and the sushi fresh. I'm not a sushi expert so I can't linger on the finer

A friend took me here because he heard it was a great new place. We loved the sushi but not the place to go for conversation. The music is so loud we almost had to yell.

A great North Park restaurant for sushi. Locals frequent it. Poke salad is a nice change of pace from the usual salad. The sushi chefs always willing to create what ever your fancy maybe. Reasonable prices.

I was surprised that this place had such great reviews. Every roll we ordered, at 12.50 a piece, had chipotle sauce on it. Gross!

Pros: Great vibe.

Cons: I knew what I was looking for and I still walked right by.

The sushi was excellent. The meso soup was very good. However, everything was over priced. The fish was so fresh! I guess I eat there on the right day. I recommend the sushi if you're willing to pay a lot.

Thank you! We were four adults and three small kids in town from Santa Barbara and Houston to do the Sea World, Legoland, etc tour. We all eat Japanese food frequently and Zensei was a real find: excellent food, broad menu, incredibly friendly and thoughtful service, reasonable prices, and mellow ambiance. If we lived in San Diego, Zensei would be our regular weekly Japanese fix.

Any restaurant creditable of making the Zagat rating is a place worth trying. For 2008, Zensei Sushi was one of the few selected in the Zagat, listed amongst America's Top Japanese Restaurants.

This is hands down my favorite sushi spot in San Diego. Even when they are crazy busy, the service is wonderful (no they don?t magically create tables out of thin air, but they are friendly and attentive, which these days is rare). The sushi chefs are a treat, fun and always willing to share some sake (if you are starving sit at the bar and get your sushi super-speedy-like). I?m not one for all the crazy rolls that people come up with, but I will try anything once (or at least a bite or two of whatever everyone else was brave enough to order) and I recommend that you try anything with mango?totally awesome and delish. Bottom line, be prepared to wait because there is always a dinner rush, but in this case the sushi is totally worth the wait (and you may have to go back the next night because you dream about how awesome the sushi was, hey it has been known to happen?).

Pros: awesome-ness all around; food, service, atmosphere

Cons: i guess parking and the fact that other people are catching on...

I can't say enough wonderful things about zensei. We eat here regularly and it's a treat everytime. We usually get the bom boms, which are shitake mushrooms stuffed with crab and tempura fried, edamame and two rolls. northern lights is my favorite and then of course there's the 30th and Upas. It's easy to be creative with such exotic ingredients but it is very rare for the risk to pay off in such a big way. Zensei consistently puts out delicious food that keeps it's patrons coming back week after week.

Pros: currently it's a bit of a squeeze but they've recently bought the place next door and are expanding

Cons: none

In Short
Innovative sushi rolls, sake concoctions and fresh-spun tunes invoke a trendy Tokyo café vibe in San Diego's North Park. Local pride shows in the display of revolving artwork and inspires rolls like the 30th and…
