I usually eat at more fast food style Japanese restaurants, but I went here for the first time two weeks ago and would definitely advise anyone looking for a good salad or soup or really, just about any quick bite. They also have a great daily happy hour. I tried the Seafood miso soup when I went and all of the ingredients seemed fresh, with just the right amount of salt and seasoning. I shared a seaweed salad with my friend which had a pretty generous portion. I noticed that a lot of people ordered the special egg rolls since there was a happy hour special and the sushi also looked pretty good from afar. Next time! haha.

Pros: Price $

Cons: Menu has SO many options...it's a lot to choose from

Only four reviews on here?? I know friends that live in the PB area and they swear by this place!! Especially for their happy hour specials which are better than anything I've encountered in the downtown SD area where I'm from.

There was a bit of a wait when we first got there (on a thursday evening) but the sushi rolls were exceptional for the price. I know it's silly to think you can LOOK at a chef and somehow tell if they cook the food authentically or not, but they really did look like they knew what they were doing. I eat Japanese food once probably every other week and if I didn't live so far south of Surfside, Id honestly be back there way more often. Who knows...my bday is coming up pretty soon so I may have to round up the troops and head to PB! :)

Pros: Great sushi rolls

Cons: Small wait time to be seated

Maybe it's just me- but I've never thought that Surfside Sushi was up to par with other sushi spots in San Diego.

It's not that bad- just nothing special and when I go out for sushi I want special.

My suspicion is that it's a bit less expensive than Sushi Ota, Zenbu and Sushi on the Rocks and that's why so many of my friends are fans.

I don't throw money around but fresh sushi is worth paying for imho.

I'm a sushi fanatic so basing this place off of the food alone I don't think I would have given it 4 starts. However the prices are really fare and the service although not super friendly is really fast. Also convenience wise its great, not to mention it's open late and right on mission so overall if it's late and you got a sushi craving that you can't help surfside works well.

The sushi here is very good. This is no imitation sushi, the owners are employees are japanese and japanese-speaking. i recommend the shrimp tempura roll and the eel roll. There is also half off on mondya nights, which is a very goodd eal sicne the sushi isn't expensive anyway.

Surfside has become somewhat of a tradition for my graduate school class. We try to meet here every few weeks to keep in touch outside of school. The most popular time to dine here is Monday at 6pm for sushi happy hour, when rolls are marked down to half price each week. The atmosphere is loud and fun, and the deals are worth the wait in often long lines. Our favourite by far is one of their specialties, the delicious crunchy roll.
