My husband and I went there for the second time last night and we both thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. I am giving this place 5 stars would like to give them more but that is not an option.

For what they give you, the respectable portion sizes and the quality of the food, the prices are quite reasonable.

Because it is located in the Grossmont area, I did not expect a classy Sushi place like this. I ordered a main course and they gave me a soup AND salad. The food was amazing and the service was excellent!

I enjoyed the couple of sushi rolls i've eaten there. I absolutely love all of their other stuff - at least what I've sampled. For instance, the hibachi steaks are awesome! I also loved my sashimi appetizer and shrimp.

I'm not really big on sushi, but a friend insisted that I try their rolls. It wasn't bad, I actually really liked it. She may have converted me with this place. Most sushi eater wouldn't consider what I had as sushi because it was a deep fried roll, but I liked it. Definitely will come back to try some of the other menu items.

My new favorite place to meet friends for Happy Hour. I'm always down that way, so great central location and parking good. Sushi tasty with plenty of other options. Fun atmosphere, and Love the fire pit outside.

The sushi has always been great. For a while, I just ordered sushi to go because I love to enjoy it in the comfort of my own home. . I think they've figured out how to move things along better. Much happier now!

One of our favorite sushi places in town! Really good sushi, teriyaki bowls and drinks. Great happy hour specials on appetizers, food, and drinks. We like sitting on the patio, especially around the fire pit. It is nice knowing Banbu is family owned. Overall great place is you like yummy sushi rolls and teriyaki bowls.

"I have to admit I've never been a big sushi fan. I've had it in San Francisco and L.A and it's always been well...sushi. I'd eat it, but never really enjoyed it. I have to say, Banbu Sushi has changed my mind. Super fresh and well balance flavors. The ginger wasn't overly processed so it was appetizing (not that skin pink nonsense). My two favorites were the Caterpillar roll and then the crunchy roll, but the protein roll was really tasty, too.
We will definitely be back with friends. Too good not to share."

Our server Mike was very pleasant and accommodating. The kumomoto oysters were awesome, and they allowed us to recreate one of our favorites that wasn't on their menu. The outdoor seating was a huge bonus!

I went in with high expectations and there were delightfully surpassed. I was with a group of 5, we ordered a ton of food, beer, and sake, just pointing to items on the wall at random, and the bill was totally reasonable (I think less than $40/person). Everything was fresh, delicious, and exquisitely prepared. The service was good, The Hamachi collar was phenomenal, so was the toro, and the sweet shrimp. I can't remember everything we ordered, but nothing was disappointing. The banana tampura was good, I enjoyed my visit and will be coming again.

"Im not sure if it's a chain or family owned, but I will give them a HIGH-FIVE .
if you are shopping at Grossmont center Banbu sushi is a great place to relax before you go shopping . Or a great place to grab something to eat before going to the movies. This is a great ""girls lunch"" place. Also great for groups, kids seem to like it as well .
I had never had bad sushi or a dish there. It is always high quality and consistent, the menu is a good size menu . The service is professional. Its usually packed at night so be prepared to wait a little while . Im in love it is sooo good!"
