Kaito Sushi

Venue Info

Some of San Diego’s best sushi restaurants are located in strip malls, and Kaito Sushi in Encinitas is no different. Though à la carte ordering is available, the best way to experience the Edomae-style sushi here is by opting for the chef's choice omakase at the sushi bar. You'll be treated to a multi-stage meal that features anything from silky squid nigiri and torched gold eye snapper with yuzu to Santa Barbara uni. The chefs helming the bar are friendly and highly skilled, so expect nothing less than the freshest cuts of fish and delicate portions of rice.
