    The food was okay. It was not great but fresh and what I would call just okay. The service was very slow. We had to wit more than 25 minutes just for our first sushi!

    I had a great conversation with the Japanese sushi chef on a weeknight that wasn't very busy. He provided great guidance on what was fresh, including an exceptional maguro (tuna) that was beautiful and a couple "homestyle" Japanese hand rolls. I appreciated that he subtly steered me away from things that he didn't think were in peak form. So if you can, sit at the sushi bar and I think they will steer you in the right direction!

    Mitsuyoshi is the essence of a classy Japanese restaurant. The food is delicious and authentic but, more importantly, the gracious service is the best part of the meal. Call for a reservation and bring your family and friends for a very special meal. It will soon become one of your favorites. Masami-San, Toshi-San, and Harumi-San work hard to keep you happy and they will soon become great friends!

    Reservation time was met , greeted in Japanese and English by courteous waitress/host . We started out with a Calamari appetizer and an order of California Rolls .Salad was fresh and had a nice tasting dressing . We then had for our main course of Tempura - Chicken Teriyaki and Tempura - Beef Teriyaki . Food and service was good , we enjoyed everything and definitely will go back again. The restaurant is on the noisy side especially being Valentines Day and the place was packed .

    This restaurant was recommended to me by a first generation Japanese client about 14 yrs ago. It is classic Japanese cuisine made with excellent quality protein and fresh produce and ingredients. I love the little clams in my miso soup! For New Years Eve, my family and I have come to Mitsuyoshi many years for a nice, traditional Japanese dinner to bring in the New Year. The receptionists and servers are very polite and friendly. If you want authentic Japanese food done right, with genuine Japanese ambience, Mitsuyoshi is the right place.

    We live in a resort town, so we have lots of great Zagot rated restaurants to compare to. Mitsuyoshi was very enjoyable; excellent food, fair price, good wine list. Service was excellent too, though we ate early, 5:30pm, not too many people there yet, that may have contributed to the excellent service. One of the best Japanese restaurants we have ever ate at in several states.

    This restaurant has benefit for dating, for couples who have anniversaries in romantic style. The dessert my girlfriend had was a redbean soup with mochi, and I had a Green tea ice cream. The soup tasted alittle over-sweetened that no one could take after one bite. Moreover, the service was great.

    I liked the sushi. It was fresh and tasty. Their house sake was really good too! The servers were very nice, but we always had a different server checking on our table, so they would occasionally forget about our requests. It may have been because it was valentines day and the place was pretty packed. You could also tell they had to deal with some rude people. And they all handled it really well overall. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

    I was in Anaheim for a business trip and we decided we wanted some sushi for dinner. Mitsuyoshi is about 10-15 minutes away from the Convention Center/Disneyland, depending on traffic. I had a "small" cold sake, and I thought the caraffe I was brought was a pretty generous size (though it may be standard, I don't have sake very often). Between the four of us, we ate at least one order of each item on the sushi roll menu, a few pieces of nigiri, and a couple second helpings of the regular sushi. I'm not really a connoisseur, but I eat sushi a few times a month and this was definitely pretty good. Fish was fresh, and flavors were nicely combined in the big rolls. Overall, I was very happy with the taste and value.

    My first time here. In spite of the fact that it was Mother's Day, it was a good dining experience all around. The staff, in spite of getting hammered with a flood people at the 6:00 dinner hour, was gracious and did their best to provide service. A very good meal and it was a bit of a surprise to find a Japanese restaurant in Stanton that would easily hold its own in Torrance or Gardena. A "mom and pop" restaurant very worthy of our support and enjoyment.

    Old school Japanese restaurant. Portions not huge but thats why it is authentic. Decor is authentic, staff is Japanese speaking, etc. Had the chirashi bowl and soft shell crab for lunch. Pretty fresh and nicely presented. My wife who doesn't eat sushi had the udon and some boneless chicken piece w rice. I felt bad cos her chicken had a lot of fat in it which she is not used to. Bottomline is don't come here for anything else besides sushi. They also have traditional cooked seafood such as the soft shell crab that seem pretty good.

    This was my 1st time here and was not dissappointed. I wanted somewhere where my date could order a wide selection of sushi and I could order something cooked. My date ordered 3 kinds of sushi and the Lobster Explosion. I ordered the Teriyaki Chicken. I was alittle bummed they only serve wine,sake and Japanese beer (and only Budweiser-which they were out of). I thought I read that they had a full bar. The food was good and the waitress a little slow but very nice. We were having a good conversation and didn't mind. I felt she wasn't trying to bother us too much because the girls across from us were taken care of quickly. Overall it was a nice experience and would go back again. My date is a big sushi guy and said it was a good choice.
