Sushi Ota Restaurant Review: Long known as the best sushi in San Diego, Sushi Ota maintains its title with the most authentic Japanese food south of Los Angeles. Devoid of ambience (literally located in a strip mall between a 7-11 and a laundromat), the food is rightly the focal point. Be prepared for a frenzy of activity---the city's Japanese businessmen and families (from all over the globe) frequent this little slice of Tokyo often, making it a tough reservation to come by. Order the well-known tuna, octopus and crab creations (all precisely prepared), or be adventurous and order something recommended by the knowledgeable all-Japanese staff. Adventurous sorts should vie for a seat at the bar; the sushi chefs may surprise you with an original creation.
