I have mixed feelings about this place, sometimes the service is good and sometimes it definitely needs work. If you're a local/frequent bada eater you'll notice more attention and sometimes new customers as well (they might even throw in a free roll to get you to come back) but other times it might be hard to flag down a waiter even if you're trying to get your check.

sushi is okay here, nothing special, they have a happy hour menu with rolls and drinks.

From the outside it looks really low key and quiet but we went inside we were surprised to find it quite full and lively. The wait for a table was about 15 mins. The prices for the sushi is standard for the specialty rolls, around $10-13 rounding up. The guys ordered a lobster roll and we ordered some spicy roll that I forgot the name of. It had spicy mayo, sirracha and jalapenos. It was indeed spicy. The mayo was a bit watery for me which I didn't appreciate. The food was ok. It was enough to satisfy our sushi craving and put us over the edge of fullness.

This place is really great. I haven't eaten sushi but the chichen teryaki and tempura shrimp, and the rice and the salads are so good. The service is great, the environment is fun and clean, and would recommend it to anyone for party of 2 or a party of 20, great place.

It?s been a while since I was there (I moved away), but I loved it and hope to go back soon. The food is good, maybe not as good as a 5-star restaurant in Japan might be, but pretty good for thousand oaks. And the people were always really friendly and they took care of me. I had my birthday once in the back room there, and everyone enjoyed it. I?m thinking I?ll go there this weekend actually?

Pros: people, food

Cons: weird hours

The sushi at Bada is fresh. There are many cut roll choices that are very creative. The banana tempura dessert is a great way to finish it all up. Try the baked scallop roll, it is addicting.

I love that Bada Sushi has a huge assortment of rolls to choose from I never get bored and they are always adding to their specials list. The food is great, better than any of the sushi places on Ventura Blvd. I have been to Katsuya and all the trendy ones, Bada is best. I am even having my birthday there in a few weeks! Try the fire fighter roll.

My friend and I went there for dinner on a thursday night and the service was rather slow considering how empty it was. I think it was due to a birthday party in the back, but they should've had more help if they knew they were going to be short-handed. They had 3 guys behind the sushi bar, so I'm not sure why they were so slow. What was nice was the we got comped two free beverages b/c we waited so long. My friend thinks it's because we were ordering about $100 worth of food and they wanted us to come back.

The food is what you come to expect from the Thousand Oaks area and Japanese cuisine. I don't mean that in a good way. If you like to go for the rolls instead of the traditional nigiri, then I think you'll like the food. I rate japanese food places for the nigiri and it wasn't good. It wasn't disgusting, but I don't plan on going back there again since I found some much better places in Camarillo.

As for drinks, I had bottled kirin ichiban and their (no-name) hot sake. The sake sucked and it should've been expected because when I asked the waiter what kind he has, he didn't know and it wasn't even listed on the menu.

Atmosphere-wise, people seemed liked they were having fun. There were three guys doing sake bombs at the sushi bar. I found it amusing that these guys were asking the Korean chefs about japanese words. I don't think those guys ever figured it out that the chefs aren't fluent in Japanese. There was a table of girls next to us and it seemed like they were having fun as well, so my overall experience wasn't too bad.
