What a surprisingly awesome find. As a sushi connoisseur and having dined as at some of the best Japanese restaurants all over Los Angeles, I was more than impressed with this delicious restaurant in Morgan Hill. Unlike the other local sushi places, this food was FRESH and fully prepared on premises. The decor is clean, minimal and very Zen. The sushi master is wonderfully friendly. And the food is remarkable. This is traditional sushi! Simple menu, ridiculously cheap prices with the finest selection of seafood, fish and sake. You can always tell a good sushi restaurant when the sake is creamy with a slightly sweet finish. This tells you the owner is focused on quality. The portions are normal size, not a ton of rice in a huge roll that you can't fit into your mouth. The sashimi melts in your mouth and the tempura is crispy, crunchy and not pre-fab ordered from Sysco. Izakaya has a traditional party room that is so quaint and charming. And has a traditional sushi bar, which I have yet to see in MH. When we ordered water they came in chilled glasses, and had linen napkins....mark of a true restaurateur! After dining at other sushi stops you may think that portions are small at Izakaya, but you will get more food for your dollar, and your jaw may just drop at how inexpensive it is. And in the traditional sense you will order more variety thus savoring the amazing freshness. And yes you can tell the rice is fresh, because it melts in your mouth and isn't sticky. You don't know good sushi until you've been to Izakaya!
