Inexpensive but good sushi rolls in SOUTH OC?

Our son lives in Costa Mesa and we’ve had pretty decent takeout rolls from Sushi Town. The four of us can enjoy a pretty good meal for around $35-$40. We live in SOUTH OC though. The places we know of (Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, RSM, etc) all seem to be around 50% higher priced. Rolls at Sushi town are $7-$8 in many cases and $10-$12 around here.

Any suggestions closer to Sushi Town prices (if they exist) would be much appreciated. It just seems unnecessary to pay more if we don’t have to. If we do… so be it.

Not sure about South OC, but I’ve had much better sushi in Costa Mesa at Sushi Sho on Fairview and Wilson than at Sushi Town.

Sorry this doesn’t help you, but I thought your son might like to try it.

Thanks. I’ll pass it on but Sushi Sho seems to be priced quite a bit higher. I know ‘you get what you pay for’ but there’s also ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’.

We went to Ahi Ahi, in RSM, as we’ve been there some time ago and found out they have an Early Bird deal. Quality and prices both pretty good… but when EB prices end (at 7:00) we see much larger and prettier rolls/dishes being served to non-EBers :roll_eyes:

Conclusion: works to get you more variety for your money, but total volume of food looked to be a bit more at regular prices. When the EB rolls were brought to us I remember saying to my wife : “Their rolls used used to be bigger and the presentation was much nicer”. Hmmmmmm.
