When endless sushi and heaps of seafood are laid out lavishly before you, there’s not much left to do but pick up those chopsticks and get down to business. Onami Tora located in the Westfield Mission Valley Mall boasts an extensive seafood buffet and sake bar for all of San Diego’s Japanese food cravings.
Onami has held a name and vast following in Mission Valley for over ten years. They’ve recently expanded to a new location still inside the Westfield mall, but maintained the same menu with fresh options and economical prices. Long-time Onami patrons can continue to dine at their beloved seafood spot that now goes by Onami Tora Seafood Buffet.
Despite its location across from the food court within the mall, the restaurant preserves an upscale vibe with high-quality foods. The room is spacious; even during the peak lunch hours, Onami Tora still feels open and inviting. For both lunch or dinner, guests can take their pick from sushi bars and seafood stations that display chefs chopping, grilling and piecing together the plates.
You’ll find sushi and sashimi with tuna, salmon, shrimp, unagi, scallops, octopus and more. Salmon Skin and Philadelphia rolls are frequent options, although the menu can change daily. A bountiful salad station features unique tastes like a cucumber seaweed salad, scallop salad, shrimp salad, calamari salad, oriental mixed salad and others. There’s also teriyaki bowls, spicy chicken wings and barbequed salmon. Save some room for desserts that touch all the bases, from cheesecake to chocolate mousse cake, tiramisu and assorted fruits. During the dinner hours, guests can choose from entrée selections like lobster, oyster sashimi, yellow tail and other more extravagant dishes.
The upgraded space also features a private party room ideal for birthday parties, baby showers and other get-togethers at no extra charge.
