Some of the best, freshest, and most delicious sushi I've had. The sushi master is amazing. The sashimi and nigiri size are MASSIVE. Unagi Don is some of these best out there in the area. Highly recommend if you want to splurge a little but worth every penny.

Great little sushi bar with izakaiya standards as well. Cute Japanese couple running the place. The Sumo they have on TV is not from the current tournament sadly but it's fun to see some of the guys who retired in the last couple years back on the dohyo. The sushi and sashimi pieces are big and fresh. The Age Dashi Tofu was good although the sauce was a little light. Nice quaint atmosphere, Hiroshige prints on the wall. If you live locally and want a "go-to sushi spot", you can't get more authentic than this!

Visited Naka Sushi and was pleasantly surprised at the authenticity of the dishes I ate. I'm half Japanese and recently lived in Japan for 2.5 years. The sushi chef, Naka-san, trained and worked in Japan and is a legit sushi chef. The Nigri portions of fish are huge and thick! It is actually 2 or more pieces of Nigri in 1. If you love unagi, their specially wood plank grilled technique makes their unagi the best I have ever eaten and that includes in Japan. Sooo good! Also, the salad and miso are on point! I drove 45 minutes from Monterey the next day to eat there again!!! Best in the entire region!
