I always thought the food here was ok, but not great. Service could be good from younger staff, indifferent from other veteran servers. It is OUT OF BUSINESS now, a Cajun seafood biz is being built in this location

The sushi chef came out from the back of the bar and tried to fix the computer up front. Few... More

I was hoping for a good meal based on the reviews. Was disappointed with service and Poki dish. Dish was over spicy where almost everything tasted the same. Miso soup with clams was very good. Wish they had served the soup before the main dish. Service was ok.

My family enjoys the sushi here and I love the Dinner Combinations. There is an incredible amount of food for $15! Their ginger dressing is the best! The wait staff are quite cheerful and we always leave happy.

We really like the sushi served at Octopus. When we want to go out for sushi, we always go to Octopus. The food is fresh, and they usually offer specials for some amazing rolls, as well as offer creative rolls that aren't on the regular menu. The only downside to dining at Octopus is that the service is hit and... More

I've been in the area a few times on business and I always try to visit this restaurant! The food is great, as is the wait staff and sushi chefs! Salmon is my favorite so I always load my ticket up with this yummy goodness. The Ultimate Salmon roll is awesome and the Sashimi roll is excellent. Give this place... More

Octopus Sushi has hands down the best prices during happy hour that I've ever experienced EVER for Sushi. Is it a fancy place? no. Is it the best decorated? No. Could it use an update and a facelift? Yes. But, does it have the best prices for happy hour? YES. They have $2 and $3 large Japanese beers, and you... More

Came here with my parents for dinner and it was an unexpected surprise! We were originally planning to go to Brunos, but when we saw that the line for a table was long, decided to come here instead and try something new! We had walked past this restaurant on numerous locations and never stopped in, now I feel this is... More

I can't believe this place is rated 7th out of 64 Brea restaurants. They must have stuffed the ballot box. I give them a low rating because I went in on a Friday night. The restaurant was steamy hot. It was noisy. At first they brought menus and water. Then I waited and sweated for 10 minutes hoping to place... More

Holy smokes, truly great sushi! Ate here twice on a recent business trip to Brea. It's situated in the beautiful Brea downtown area and conveniently right outside the parking garage. Sushi was yummy, fresh and decently priced! The sashimi roll was to die for!
