Sushi 5 is a new place in Tustin where you can get first-rate fish for pennies, says russkar.
Don’t be turned off by the setup, which is a revolving conveyor of sushi. *GrindzHound * is a huge fan of the quality and value.
Nigiri sushi such as yellowtail, albacore tataki, salmon and, scallops are consistently fresh and tasty. The scallops include the entire scallop, not just the white medallion normally served, which means it has more of a scallop/clam flavor. One time, though, the tuna sushi was not so fresh.
Miso soup is made from scratch; salmon salad is a generous portion of greens, salmon skin, avocado, and scallions, dressed with ponzu.
Nigiri sushi costs $2.50 for two pieces (if you can find a coupon in Pennysaver, it’s $1.99 Monday-Thursday); sushi rolls are $2.50 and premium sushi (toro, giant clam) is market price, but there might be deals on the specials board, like two pieces of toro/giant clam for $2.50. Salmon salad is $6.
Lunch specials, served seven days a week, include $5-6 donburi bowls and a 10-piece sushi lunch for $10, including salad and miso soup.
The owner is Japanese, and also owns Laguna Sushi.
