Recommended Asian Cuisines in San Luis Obispo (SLO) County

Posted by on Monday, January 14, 2019 Under: Restaurants
Here are my recommended Asian Restaurants in San Luis Obispo County from my experiences:

Kumi Ko - Located in San Luis Obispo that's a couple of blocks from the SLO airport is Kumi Ko, a Japanese restaurant with sushi and other Japanese dishes. It's my favorite place to eat Japanese food when I am in San Luis Obispo City. The sushi is fresh, the bento boxes taste delicious and the service is reliable with good standards. You can them ahead to order take-out but it will take about 45 minutes. I prefer to dine in.

My bento box came with 2 options for a half roll of sushi and I glad picked spicy tuna with the spicy pork entree. Address: 3830 Broad St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401

Mee Low Heng Noodle House - Located in downtown San Luis Obispo, Mee Low Heng serves noodle soups and stir fry noodles.

Try their dumplings as an appetizer. They put it in a hot and sour sauce that's delicious! The place is small but the building is uniquely 2 stories and reminds me of the medieval Chinese era. Many order take out as well. Address: 815 Palm St, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401

Fay's Fusion - Located in Pismo Beach, near the Pier, is a boba shop called Fay's Fusion. This place is legit! Boba is done right with the quintessential popcorn chicken with dried basil.

They also have noodle dishes and rice dishes! It's a small mom and pop type place with a lot of pride. I usually get the Thai Tea boba with the popcorn chicken. See a list of boba shops that I've visited in San Luis Obispo County. Fay's Fusion Address: 220 Hinds Ave, Pismo Beach, CA 93449

Kochi Korean BBQ & Shabu Shabu - Located in Atascadero, California (still part of San Luis Obispo county) is a large Korean restaurant that serves amazing Korean BBQ, where you traditionally grill it yourself! You can also have shabu shabu, sushi and other delicious dishes.

Best yet, they have a special kid's room for kids to play in, while waiting your food. This is a super bonus! Address: 6900 El Camino Real, Atascadero, CA 93422. See other places with kid's play areas in SLO. 

Sushi 805 - They have sushi, hot Japanese dishes and amazing Korean food like hot seafood tofu stew! Just check out the photos below from my recent visit! I was so impressed.

Portions at Sushi 805 were big, sushi was fresh and I feel like I was not being ripped off. This place is a must go in Grover Beach if you're into hot, spicy Asian food done the authentic way. They also have a buffet style ordering for a flat fee. Address: 460 W. Grand Ave., Grover Beach, CA 93433

Raku Ramen - Located in San Luis Obispo, this ramen shop gets super busy. They have different kinds of broths for ramen with even an option to order size small, instead of the regular size! They also have rice bowls, appetizers and other dishes.There's a patio area so it may be okay to bring your dog.

Raku Ramen Address: 799 E Foothill Blvd Ste A, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405

Kanpai Sushi - Located in Shell Beach, Kanpai serves fresh, great quality Japanese food. It's a great place for sushi, ramen, hot, sizzling dishes and some wine or beer! Prices are kind of high but the quality and service make up for it. Each sushi roll is a great size!  

They also offer a great kid's menu for kids 10 and under! Read my full review on Kanpai Sushi and see more pictures. Kanpai address: 2665 Shell Beach Rd, Shell Beach, CA 93449

Oki Kohl Espresso Bar
In San Luis Obispo is a coffee and mini-mart that also serves dim sum! They sell buns that are bigger than the palm of my hand and deliciously steamed shu mai! I love the items they have for sale.

They have a sit down area with wifi so you can hang out for hours while dining and drinking here. Address: 2252 Broad St Suite 130, San Luis Obispo, CA 93401

Poke Morro - Poke Morro is a small poke restaurant in Arroyo Grande Village and located close to other shops, restaurants and businesses.

They used to have a location near the Regal Movie Theaters in Arroyo Grande but that one closed down. They still have a location at The Village in Arroyo Grande though. If you're craving a Hawaiian style raw fish bowl, this is a great place for it. You can customize your bowl and pick your sizes. Address: 121 W Branch St, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420

Red Dirt Coffee House - They serve good coffee and Hawaiian lunch plates! In a very casual atmosphere in Arroyo Grande, Red Dirt Coffee House has couches, tables and chairs and a very tropical decor inside and out. They used be located on Grand Ave in Arroyo Grande but now they've moved to a bigger shopping center where the Wal Mart is located in Arroyo Grande (AG). Look out for daily specials like adobo and Hawaiian favorites like spam musubi!

Red Dirt Coffee House Address: 1142 W Branch St, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420

Pacific Umi Sushi - Sushi and Japanese food in Grover Beach done right!

It seems a bit more upscale than the other sushi restaurants in the Grover Beach area but the quality and portions are large. Address: 1319 W Grand Ave, Grover Beach, CA 93433

Noi & Doi's 2nd Street Cafe - This is one of the best Thai Food in San Luis Obispo county and it's located in Los Osos!

Try one of their curries or noodle dish. Actually, everything is good here! If you want an appetizer, try their fried calamari. They have a cute outdoor seating area. 

It's also a dog-friendly place. Noi & Doi's Address: 1325 2nd St, Los Osos, CA 93402

Sushi Kokku - Located in a shopping center in Pismo Beach, Sushi Kokku is a casual sushi spot. The sushi here is significantly cheaper than surrounding areas. You order at the counter and then they'll bring the food to your table. Sushi 

Sushi Kokku Address: 581 Five Cities Dr., Pismo Beach, CA 93449
