This is not a full write up but I wanted to just share this with you guys so if you are looking for a great sushi restaurant in Pasadena, check out Oba!  The fish is all super fresh, they go out of their way to pick up lots of cool and unique items from Japan.  They even have fresh wasabi from Japan!!

Owner Kunche and her crew having been making sushi for over 10 years and are all extremely passionate about what they do and bringing in the highest quality product out there.  

They get super early, every morning to go to the fish market to pick up the freshest products.  

They have a VIP program so the more you eat...there are some great benefits!!  


So often, we don't know what sushi places to go to...are they fresh? Is it good?  This was awesome!!  I really enjoyed it!
