11400 N Ventura Ave., Ojai CA 93023 [map]
One of the hottest restaurants in town, Sakura Ojai has a great sushi bar, festive local atmosphere and a new teppan grill. Try the shrimp tempura roll with crab, the eel and avocado roll and spicy tuna hand roll. Or roll up your sleeves and order the two foot long sushi boat. They have an outdoor patio with a warm, round fireplace but the piped-in Japanese pop may be a bit much for some ears.
