Inland Empire Sushi?

I have lived in Claremont for nearly 2 years now and have yet to find any sushi close to what I had when I lived in Venice. Does anyone have any recommendations for this area? I don't need any fancy cooked dishes, just good, fresh tasting, tender fish! Thanks!

  1. Try Sushi Jubei in Diamond Bar/Rowland Heights. It is a bit expensive but they have fresh fish and not too far away.

    1. Hayato Sushi & Grill on Foothill Blvd is a great place. It's understated, but clean and everything is fresh & delicious. I took my husband there for his birthday because he loves sushi and we didn't want to drive to far. Keep your eyes open though because it's hidden in a little shopping mall. If you see that monstrous blue sushi boat thing on Foothill, your just have to follow the parking lot east of it.

        So, there are two sushi restuarants near that blue boat? Hayato Sushi & whatever the blue boat sushi restaurant is called?

      2. Have you been to Kazama on Indian Hill by the Village? I find the sushi there quite good. I've also heard good things about Ken's Sushi in Rancho Cucamonga on Foothill, but I've never been.

        Kazama Sushi
        101 N Indian Hill Blvd Ste C1-104A, Claremont, CA 91711

        Ken's Japanese Restaurant
        10006 Foothill Blvd, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730

        1. I'm in Claremont too and agree re: Hayato on Foothill (I'm about to head there for lunch in fact). For me, it's clearly the best in the area. And yes, it's on the same block as the infamous Sushi Cruise.

          1. My husband and I are partial to Sushi Takumi, in Upland. Excellent all-you-can-eat sushi, with fresher fish than anything we've tried in Claremont. The pink dragon roll is basically dessert in sushi form.
