Best Sushi in San Jose area
I'm looking for sushi recommendations in the San Jose area. I'd like to avoid driving to Palo Alto or Milpitas and would prefer to stay around Campbell/San Jose area. I simply haven't been able to find a good place around here for sushi.
Here's a thread that should help you -
Cupertino and San Jose can easily beat out Milpitas sushi-wise.
P.S. Should have asked what style you're seeking. Tomi and Kitsho are both traditional and emphasize the quality of the fish and knife-work over American-style fried sushi rolls.
Blowfish would be one of my first picks. It is located in Santana Row. If you do not mind techno and Japanese anime this would be the place. The other food is also good as well. I must say it is on the pricey side but I feel it is very good.
I would eschew Blow fish and go to Kitsho or Sushi Kuni in Cupertino, or Sushi Tomi and Tomisushi (San Jose and Mountain View, same owners).
Where have you already tried?
You've received some good recs so far, but I'll add Kubota in Japantown to the mix. I haven't eaten at many south bay sushi places to proclaim this my "best", but I enjoyed our one visit to Kubota for sushi. Fish was fresh and nigiri were made well. Have heard their cooked items are solid too. Nice space. Anyone been recently?
I haven't tried it, but I've heard good things about Sushi on the Run in Los Gatos. Supposed to be a tiny place w/ about 8 stools. Even the tiny places seem to have a web presence these days...
