We were there just a few days after 2016 Christmas. All tables were in use. Luckily next table open was ours. However, all the tables ahead of us were just ordering and when we got the chance to order we had all ready waited 35 minutes. Order appetizers and a beer that never came, but as I expected the whole... More

We love the bento boxes! A lot of food! It came with 2 rolls, edamame as well as soup and salad. We have been back there twice, we still love it!

The all you can eat lunch and dinner special is a great deal. The selections of sushi, sushi carpaccio, hot foods and salads is very good. The yellow tail sushi was excellent and the salmon carpaccio superb. The baked musceles are very good. All the special rolls are also included. Two hour time limit and everyone in our party was...

A great selection of Sushi rolls with a very nice atmosphere and attentive folks when we arrived for dinner after visiting the Solar Decathlon at the OC Great Park. If you are going to play it safe with the combination meals, I would say you are in for a very ho-hum meal, though. Nothing special with those but safe for... More

Stopped late Sunday afternoon on the way back from the beach. New menu, larger with new dishes. Happy hour from 3:00 to 6:00 every day includes a number of appetizers, sushi rolls, and drinks. Had some garlic edamame which were a hot, a bit spicy, and excellent. Wife had the tempura appetizer and an order of gyoza. I had two... More

I went here for lunch with a friend. The first thing I noticed was it was clean and tidy. The staff greeted us right away and seated us. The menu has many choices, many more than were on the generic website. I had never been here before, my friend has been many time. She said she loves this place, I... More

We usually come for sushi during Happy Hour when prices are almost half off. Today, we decided to try lunch and had sushi rolls instead of the bento boxes which looked amazing. Next time we will do the bento. Our favorite roll is the Alaskan roll which is a salmon roll. So good! The other rolls we've tried are also... More

Wife didn't feel like cooking, wanted something nearby, hadn't had Japanese food in a while. This place filled the bill. Decor a bit bright and glaring, service was prompt and friendly. Ordered two combination dinners with roll sushi, tempura, and beef teriyaki or tonkatsu. Good, hot, crisp tempura. Nothing special.

There was a plastic bag in my udon noodle soup. They offered to replace with the same thing. I lost all appetite.

Used to serve great food. But recently, the food is way below average. The fried food comes out limp, cold and soggy. The teriyaki is generally just warmed over. They still sell cheap sushi at happy hour, but the quality is decreasing. At this rate, I might stop coming here.
