Found them on OpenTable, and thought we would give it a try. Sushi and mixed tempura. Food was average compared to the more than 20 japanese places we've eaten at all through California and the US; prices were appropriate. Several levels below Koi in Seal Beach (which is terrific). Server didn't know what they were doing; brought us food we hadn't ordered, didn't bring us food we had ordered, and charged us for drinks we never got.

this was the first time we went back to O since the Covid-19 closedown. The restaurant had made their table with great social distance, and has sectioned the tables with glass panels. It gives a sense of safety and privacy. Service is faster than before even though it was a Friday evening. They did not increase the prices, unlike many other places. We had a great evening and will go back soon.

The food was good, although they did not have some items on their menu that were listed on their website. Our server was not friendly, make us all feel uncomfortable and did not get my first order right. Too bad. Will probably not recommend this restaurant to friends, as there are many other Japanese restaurants with better service.

The food and service was great! We had a couple of their specialty rolls, the pot stickers and some edamame. Everything was super fresh and very tasty. The table next to us ordered the teriyaki beef and it smelled amazing. We will have to try that next time.

Excellent sushi and our waiter was excellent. He helped us food choices and informative and friendly. They have the standard sushi rolls but so many other items not usually seen on sushi menus. The only downside is it is high priced but I would still highly recommend.

Great experience, as per usual! Their omakase offerings are great! Especially love the lobster. The matcha cheesecake was also very good. Also tried the wagyu sushi for the first time, not bad at all! Would always recommend!

Worst tempura ever! I have been to many Japanese restaurants, including restaurants in Japan and in Asia, and never ever ate a worse tempura; oily and soggy. Tempura is almost fool proof food, guess not for this restaurant.

Sashimi is also not very good, even the sashimi at Tokyo Central is better.

The food was fairly good. The service was a little slow (drinks and refills) and appetizer came with my dinner. For the price it was good value, but when I get a night out I want more.

I came for the $80 Luxe (10-pc omakase) OC Restaurant Week. However, the minimum order was 2 omakase, which was never stated on the menu online or at the restaurant. Hence, I was quite disappointed with this unwritten policy. Instead, I ordered a few sushi favorites, which were average in quality but premium in price. Further, the service by the girl was stand-offish. We're not returning.

Wow what a wonderful experience 🙌🏼👏🏼👍🏼, we came for OC Restaurant Week and did the Omakase Dinner my husband and I and it was simply delicious..... He was a bit skeptical at first because he thought “oh it’s a deal and they won’t give the good stuff “ but WRONG, we got it ALL! Awesome service and a really cute setting, going back for more in a couple days. We’ve found a new fav Sushi 🍣 Restaurant loved the menu great items you don’t see everywhere and presentation was wonderful 💯

Upper end neighborhood center sushi location and decor, with food and presentation of some of the best sushi I’ve had.

Definitely one of the top 2 or 3 places for quality sushi in Orange County.
