Because San Jose has the good fortune of being oceanside, San Jose sushi has the good fortune of being delicious. With easy access to fresh-caught fish, the city’s sushi chefs are free to focus more on the art of presentation. At the Fairmont San Jose restaurant TAKAI, an exhibition kitchen allows guests to watch as chefs prepare colorful maki. Other great sushi spots are considered some of the best restaurants in San Jose. Cha Cha Sushi is known for its generous portions—not only is the maki huge, but every table gets complimentary mussels—and Sen Dai Sushi is popular for its thick-cut fish.
