When you try to pick the best restaurant for a burger, pizza, taco, or waffle, it's easy to come up with a mutual list with your friends.

But, best sushi?

It's completely a different story!

Ask any of your friends what are the top three sushi restaurants in any neighborhood, you'll definitely come up with tens of different best lists.

When it comes to sushi, everyone has a different opinion. Because the price is one of the biggest determinants to choose sushi restaurants.

For this reason, there are different types of sushi restaurants:

Sushi Trains and All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Restaurants: At sushi train restaurants you can choose what you like to eat from the conveyor belt at reasonable prices. Similarly, all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants serve those who want to eat sushi without having to worry about the cost.

Mid-Class Sushi Restaurants: Comparing to sushi trains and all-you-can-eat sushi restaurants, mid-class sushi restaurants are rather more pricy. In these restaurants, menus and services differ by location, but you can always count on big, fresh sushi ingredients.

High-Class Sushi Restaurants: Although these restaurants are also offering fresh, authentic, and delicious sushi, these restaurants are mostly about the experience. As Cathy Chaplin says, from classic omakase experiences to out-of-the-box experimental sushi and breathtaking kaiseki fare, there are various high-class sushi restaurants you can experience different tastes.

Nowadays, in every neighborhood around us, there are multiple sushi restaurants. However, for a new sushi lover like me, it is very important to find a place that makes a good and fresh one.

For all of these reasons, this wasn’t an easy list to make for me. However, here are the three best sushi restaurants in Bakersfield, based on sushi lovers' recommendations.
