Full Moon is a simple neighborhood Japanese restaurant. Not too fancy but cozy. Food is quite good without the fancy price you pay at the finer dining establishments. They have a full menu of Japanese dishes and a small sushi bar which is also quite good. I call it an "anyday" dining experience because its someplace you can go any... More

Really like this place. Good variety, knowleageable chefs, busy place, very good fish. Two reasons i did not give them 5 stars is 1- I am very picky about my sushi and they dont have a wide variety of fish - however they do have more than most. 2- they use very cheap chopsticks, always curved and dont break properly.

Travelling south on I-405, we stopped for fuel off the Brookhurst exit. Feeling hungry, we decided to go south a bit more on Brookhurst to see what was available. About 3 blocks south of the offramp on the right, we found Full Moon Sushi. It had a fair amount of patrons there, but the hostess got us a seat at... More

Decorations and atmosphere are average, 3 stars. The popularity of this restaurant means that service could be improved with more servers, 3 stars. Lots of takeout orders were out the door. The poke bowl was one dimensional, with tuna as the only fish, but well seasoned. The sushi rice here was to our liking, and everything we ordered on two... More

They make the freshest and best lambijuns in Orange County. I think even better than Jacks Bakery and that's saying something.

I really enjoyed my dinner. Every thing was so fresh I loved the tempura so tasty the Chiken rice salad and soup perfect. They serve wine and have a dessert selection. I would definitely go back they were very busy but the server was great and sr ice was fast.

sushi and sashimi is reported by my sons to be very good. The combo plates like salmon and tempura are merely ok but then the price is quite reasonable so the value is attractive.

Where should I start oh by walking in to the the place you can't help but feel how unfriendly this joint is. The food nothing to write home about but the service oh you can it is without a doubt the most horrifying experience you could ever have I don't know what else to say eat at your own risk!

Delicious sushi and Japanese combinations too. Very friendly staff and fair prices. Limited ambiance, but food offerings make up for it. Great little local place
