    Service was terrible. Everyone's dinner came out at different times. They ran out of rice...you can't make this stuff up! One more time...they ran out of rice! The sushi was average at best and given the poor service, that only made a bad experience even worse. Did I mention that they ran out of rice?

    Inside is very spacious. Had a business lunch meeting here and the sound level was quiet enough to conduct a conversation without any problems. Food is also very good, too!

    I made a reservation on line and I was trying to impress someone. I mentioned this in the reservation and the hostess reserved a private booth. The restaurant & patio look really nice. Their wine selection was good. Service was outstanding!!! Very knowledgable and extremely friendly. What brought it all together was the white tuna, the blue fin, and shrimp & crab specialty rolls. The food is dynamite!!! Please consider this place for any occasion. You won't be disappointed.

    While sushi purists will have reservations re: the quality and combinations of the food (the lobster roll has more synthetic crab in in than it should, and they use a lot of synthetic crab vs the 'real' snow crab as prior reviewers have remarked), I found that this place is a good start to bring a date for a night of partying. The sushi is good and comes in plenty of (sometimes wild) combinations, the staff is friendly and tries hard to make you feel comfortable, the drinks and wine are reasonably priced, and the place has a cutting-edge decor and decent music (both pretty rare for a sushi place), which gives it a good party vibe. There is outside seating in front of the place and ample free parking in this commercial area.

    Great place for some authentic Japanese selections and noodles. We tried one roll which was very good, but went there to start sampling from the cold and hot appetizer part of the menu. Also had a bowl of the Special Soba noodles (green tea soba in a cold dashi broth). Flights of sake along with some very pleasant jazz playing in the background added to our dining pleasure. Service was excellent. Looking forward to returning. We were there at 6:30 on a Friday night, had a reservation but had most of the restaurant to ourselves until 7:30-ish. A real gem for that part of Irvine.

    If it's a sunny day, the outdoor seating is really nice. Fresh air, people watching, & the heaters keep it warm. Mizuki might consider upgrading the interior dining area. The food is really good (i especially like the sashimi). The main dining area is not as inviting as the food. Overall, i really like this place and expect to be back many times.

    I was there for dinner. Every dish I ordered was delicious but the price was way too high. The service was great.

  • Excellent Sushi & Tempura

    Dined on 3/1/2013
    Some of the best sushi I have eaten in a long time. The L.A. Angel roll is exquistely crated using some kind of citrus seasoning, different and very tasty. The mixed tempura ampetizer was perfect for two people to share and was light and very delicious. For a Friday night the place was not very busy, which to me means people either do not know about the place, or they are fed up with the parking situation which is not the best. Not the resturant's fault, but the parking lot is perpetually full...just too many businesses in that area.
