About Us

Opened in 1997, Sapporo is a locally-owned, family run business on Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach, San Diego, California. The proprietor, Yuri-san, was born in Osaka, Japan, and can be found greeting and entertaining customers nearly every night. Our great specials, high quality seafood, and reasonable prices keep our loyal customers coming back for more. Offering a full bar, including a large selection of sake and Japanese beers, Sapporo Japanese Restaurant is a great place to enjoy the best of Japanese cuisine.

Not a sushi fan? Our menu offers many choices, including chicken, beef, and vegetarian dishes. Our new steak dinner special is very popular and a great value.

Sapporo has earned top honors as the best sushi restaurant in Ocean Beach for the past six years by the Peninsula Beacon Readers. In 2014, we were distinguished as one of the best steakhouses in Ocean Beach as well.
