Japanese Izakaya Restaurant
in Chula Vista

An izakaya is a casual Japanese establishment that serves food and drink where people gather to socialize in. The foods ranges from small dishes, similar to tapas, to accompany the drinks, as well as larger serving sizes to eat while you enjoy Japanese beers and sake. In Izakaya Naruto we serve not only Japanese dishes, but a wide variety of foods taking inspiration from other regions in Asia and other nearby countries such as Mexico. The food presentation and the atmosphere of Naruto is different from other local Japanese restaurants -- its modern and casual setting welcomes all kinds of people.


*We appreciate that many customers visit our restaurant every day. However, we have a tiny kitchen and eating space that makes (sometimes) the waiting time for both to-go and dine-in up to 1 hour or more at longest. We understand that people go to the restaurants when hungry. We really appreciate your patience and understanding, as we also go to restaurants on private time when hungry.

*We apologize for not answering your phone calls, since we are constantly busy.

*We are sorry, too for showing all of our policies inside and outside of the restaurant, and also on the wabsite. It is because many customers have ignored and failed to comply with these rules.
We hope you understand. Of course we understand that you do not go to restaurants to read signs, but to be enjoy and have good time!

*To keep the quality & the price reasonable, we are not making our business bigger. Thank you for understanding!


With regards to the recent incident, we would like to extend our gratitude for all your concerns and worries. We appreciate all of it. As a local business in Chula Vista, we always aim to provide excellent food, service, and safety for all our customers. That is why we would like to clarify the misinformation regarding the news stories. The incident did not occur inside of the restaurant, and no employees or customers were harmed or injured inside of the restaurant. The incident happened outside of the restaurant, and it was not aimed towards the restaurant. Since the outside premises is an open space, the restaurant does not have a control over it. The restaurant and its employees are not involved or affiliated with the incident. The incident is under investigation by the police. It is unfortunate that such incident occurred and we hope that it would not happen in the future. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim, and we wish for a complete and restful recovery.
Despite of the unfortunate circumstance, we will resume our regular business hours of operation from today, 4/3/2019.
Thank you all once again.
