I can count on this restaurant to deliver high quality and tasty food. I typically start off with the Torro Sushi; it is my litmus test. This is hands down the BEST torro I have eaten including places in Tokyo. Creamy, melt in your mouth quality fish. The house salad is crisp with two dressings to choose from. Accompanied with...

The soft shell crab was to die for. Tasty seaweed salad. Veggie tempura was terrific. California roll - wow. It was busy from the opening at 5 so we got the last table at 5:20. Lots of people waiting at 6:45 when we left.

Koi is a long time favorite of mine. I have been coming here for 20 years. It is consistently good. Today is fresh fish after thanksgiving. The blue fin tuna and blue fin toro is awesome.

This place is always busy and never disappoints. The fish is always fresh and the portions are larger than one would expect from a Japanese restaurant. The service is spot on and I've never been disappointed. The key is to arrive by 6:00 M-Sat; 5:30 on Sunday and 9/10 you will be seated. Anytime afterwards, there will be a wait.... More

This is a nice and unique Sushi joint. the prices are mid-high $$...but you will not be disapppointed with the quality and and selections. It's a casual atmosphere and service is great. Sometimes there may be a bit of a wait, but well worth it. When I take my out of state/country relatives and friends they are very satisfied....

Best sushi in Orange County has them coming from near and far. Owner Go and chef Daigo present only the freshest of the fresh ocean bounty.
