Wonderful food, ample portions, good service, definitely our best restaurant experience during 2020 Orange County Restaurant Week. Everything was superb. If regular prices were not so high, we would be back much more frequently. Suggestion: lower your lunch prices, Starfish.

I love this restaurant!!! I went with 4 other girlfriends and our server made sure we had at least 5 pieces of the small plates so we could all share. The food is so delicious!

We were seated on their outdoor patio and enjoyed a very pleasant dinner. I prefer the outdoor patio (covered with heaters) because it is a bit quieter than indoors. Their food is consistently very good. We regularly order takeout and eat at home. The happy hour dining is an excellent value as well. Our server provided exceptional service -- very friendly and accommodating.

Ambiance and service were fantastic, but did not enjoy the food at all. Kids liked their food. We ordered several of the sushi rolls, they were all mostly rice, with very little fish and no flavor. Next time we will try the warm food, maybe better.

Our dinner was amazing! Danielle took very good care of us including my dietary allergies. We had a spicy tuna roll, amazing, Pad Thai with shrimp, very flavorful and perfectly seasoned and the sweet and sour halibut. The halibut dish was awesome! The “ginger pinch” drink was a great cocktail. I will definitely be back. Thanks for a great night!

We were seated on the patio. Our server Alex did not miss a beat, it was a busy night and we were tucked far in the corner. Our food was delicious, lots of shared plates - satay, dumplings, green curry.. Just once I will go there and order blindfolded..I have no doubt everything on the menu is insanely good! I will keep dining there and working my way through the menu. Highly recommend! Romantic dinner, celebration dinner, date night...you will not be disappointed. I never am!

We loved the array of choices on the menu. We ordered the Lobster tempura roll which is unique as it's done in filo dough. We have the sashimi plater and the crab sliders, all of which were fresh, tasty and served promptly. If we lived in the area, we would definitely return as this is our type of menu.

Mario was our waiter and he did an outstanding job, both with his service as well as his recommendations. We started with an order of crab wonton and potstickers for starters. Both were excellent. We then switched to sushi. My wife had the tempura shrimp roll and I had the sunset roll. Again, both were excellent. Mario introduced me to Thai curry, so I had an order of Jasmine rice with Red Thai curry. Very good. Finally, we had an order of bread pudding. It was served warm with vanilla ice cream, Carmel sauce and sliced bananas. It was great. There are so many wonderful things on the menu that we want to try. We will have to come back, next time that we are in the area.

The food wasn't good at all and way overpriced. In all honesty it wasn't even on par with Panda Express and that isn't an exaggeration. Everything was a candy glaze. The sashimi missed the point, to just focus on the flavors of the fish itself. You shouldn't put whatever sauce was on the plate and sprinkle it with pepper flakes? Also that was the thinnest cuts I've ever had. One good thing was your old fashion cocktail, that's pretty much it.
