Restaurants come and go in the downtown Modesto scene, but Raw Sushi Bistro seems to be making an impression on locals since its establishment on I Street just eight months ago.
Upon entering Sushi Garden II in Turlock, customers are immediately greeted with the smiling faces of diners past. A wall covered in pictures of locals who have enjoyed the cuisine at Sushi Garden II are framed near the entrance, a testament to the good service and quality food that keeps customers coming back.
The first thing that grabs you is the décor.

OAKDALE – Nestled deep in the Cowboy Capital of the World, House of Beef ropes in its guests near and far with a tantalizing steak selection.
