I love this sushi restaurant. It's been in Brea for 29 years and I was introduced to this place for lunch. Everything is fresh and very tasty. My favorite is the sushi Latina. They also serve teriyaki and tempura shrimp however I go there for the sushi!!

The sushi is premium and slightly more expensive but you get what you pay for when it comes to quality. Very friendly chef and staff. It's a small place in a strip mall but very nice.

Although the place isn't as "overstyled" as most sushi places are these days it's still a great place to stop for some good quality sushi and some tasty sake! I particularly like their sashimi platters!

I had some friends tell me about this place--they had been going there for years but always as a new year's day tradition. We finally all went on a regular weekend night and it did not disappoint! I really like the coziness of this restaurant although it is a little difficult to find--it is set back from the street near... More

We had a discount coupon so decided to give a try. It looked very clean, little tight between tables though. Servers were very attentive; took our orders quickly. They have a big menu so they were plenty to choose from the list. My friends ordered lunch combos, I asked for sushi. It was a good sushi, not the best I... More

This place had the best "boat" in town. There are several to pick from and each one is delicious. Be hungry when you go. You won't be disappointed; excellent food and service!

We visited here on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. They were not real busy. On a previous trip they were busy. They start you out with a cold plate of Endame which is a nice touch. They have drink specials on Sundays. Can of Kirin for $1.75 and hot Sake $1. They also have a standing special of a bucket... More
