Kawa is a decent little sushi joint in a great location in downtown Monterey. We had dinner here one night during the Tuesday Farmers Market. We enjoyed a few plates of sushi rolls and a bento box combo. The bento box had tempura, rice, miso soup, teriyaki chicken, tuna rolls, and a small salad for about $15. We both enjoyed the sushi, the service was excellent, and the restaurant well-decorated with lots of traditional Japanese items.
