Consistently Great Sushi
I have been going to this place for close to a year now and it's hands down the best and most consistent sushi on the Peninsula I have been able to find. I highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar if you're not in a large group as the chefs are all friendly and fun to watch.

Real good sushi. Kobe beef
Real good sushi. Kobe beef roll exceptional. Not big inside so a reservation worth having.

I really enjoyed my lunch
I really enjoyed my lunch here. I was pleasantly surprised at the menu and had a hard time deciding what to get. Our table shared the crispy rice, risotta and a sashimi dish and it was all very good. The menu had a lot of things we've all decided we wanted to go back and try!

Met a friend for dinner. We both loved the food and the noise level was low enough that we could easily have a conversation. We ordered the Great Balls of Fire based on a Yelp recommendation, and were not disappointed - it was the best sushi I've ever had. The waitress was very helpful with other suggestions. It was pretty pricey, but worth it for a special night out.

Love the food but..
Love the food but the atmosphere is a little too cozy for a personal conversation. We usually just eat and go since it isn't the most comfortable place to sit and relax with friends.

Creative and Artistic Japanese Food
Very creative food that is beautifully plated. Yummy Berkshire pork belly entree, you must try. Nice rolls, very fresh ingredients. The bench wood seats are very uncomfortable, we bring our own cushions so we can enjoy our dinner. Service can be spotty and sometimes rude. All in all, a must try place that is a nice addition to San Carlos.

I made a reservation after reading all the good reviews Seiya has and I can say I will come back again! The food was delicious! Mc'Daddy rolls are a must try if you want to try something really amazing!! It was so good that I orderded two of those :) So far this is the best sushi place I've been to!

Freshest sushi in the bay
Freshest sushi in the bay area...you get what you lay for here. Try the fish tacos, white salmon and Tasmanian ocean trout. Also amazing are the fireballs and temptation rolls. With excellent Mochi for desert.

A bit more expensive than your average sushi bar, but worth it. Real crab, not fake, very fresh fish, nicely presented. Corkage was $15 and we didn't see much on their list that we would have ordered any way. As other diners mentioned, the place is small. We made a reservation on Open Table for a late seating as that was the only think available, then called and had it changed to a mre convenient time. I would absolutely eat here again...and I'm pretty picky about my sushi!

Wonderful food. In fact I am going to return this coming week to the restaurant. The fish tacos are fabulous.

best sushi in bay area
There are a lot of sushi places that are "okay", but this one is great. I love the combinations: spicy hulk is spicy tuna wrapped in cucumber (super fresh) and he kobe beef with ginger and asparagus is yummie too.

Interesting dishes, extremely fresh
My husband and I can't get enough of Seiya's food. Each item on the menu is an interesting spin on the usual Japanese dishes we find around here. And the freshness of the fish and meat makes this place stand out. Don't forget to try some of their salads. My sashimi salad was a work of art!

Food was delicious...would have a full five star rating but the salmon sashimi was slightly fishy. EVERYTHING else was top notch!!

as always: best sushi
As always: the sushi here is great. Super fresh, good combinations of flavors, actual crab in the california... My favorite is spicy hulk: cucumber on the outside and spicy tuna on the inside. Its amazing to see the cook carving the cucumber for this. Second favorite is the geisha: a slice of lime on top.
Its the best sushi in the bay area!

Innovative Japanese dishes
My husband and I love this place. The dishes are so innovative! Try everything even if you think you've had it before. They don't do dishes like everyone else; you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Seiya is definitely a treat. We'd go more if we won the lottery!

We wound up there kind of unplanned. Very pleasant surprise. Great quality and presentation of the food.

This restaurant is small and unnoticeable from outside. But the raw fish is really fresh. I like the uni and amaebi. There is not much room for each person. If you like to sit close to each other, this is a good choice. But if you want more room and privacy, you may not want to go there, especially if you have many bags of stuffs, very big coats. There is no room to put those stuffs.

Went here for my sister's birthday and everything was wonderful. The sake, the service and most importantly the food!

First time here - will go back
This is a small place that I never knew was here - easy to miss as it really is small. However, the food was excellent! They had interesting sushi as well as cooked food and everything was fresh and very tasty. Because of the size of the restaurant and the quality of the food I would suggest reservations. Enjoy!

Solid restaurant in the Suburbs...
A good meal is hard to find in the burbs. This place comes through in spades. I can tell the chefs really enjoy their craft and work very hard to perfect it here. Felt like I was in a great SF location. Service was meh as they made mistakes on our orders, but it was not the chefs faults. I will be back...a bunch.
