Absolutely fantastic food with ..... like name .... Slow service.

Let me start this by saying the sushi is second to none. It's worth looking for this place. It is very small, so it pays to put in a reservation. We had several sushi dishes, which all of us, there felt, were fresh and wonderfully prepared. The only downside, was once we were seated & served, the... read more

My friend and I went here for lunch on her recommendation. I am so grateful to her because this place is amazing. We ordered the garlic edamame for an appetizer and they are SO GOOD. They come out hot and garlicy and a bit spicy. Super addictive. I ordered the slow fish roll. This house specialty is possibly the best... More

One of the worst sushi experiences ever. I was extremely disappointed. Sushi chef ignores the people at the sushi bar, instead tending to the to-go orders. Very weak in all regards. Reached of strong cleanser smell which does not compliment any food, especially sushi. TINY pieces of fish on the sushi!

My wife and I like to visit Slow Fish several times each month, usually for Lunch, but sometimes Dinner, as it is about one mile straight down the main street from our home. Japanese food service, complete with chop sticks, and Bento Box filled with excellent cooked fish and veggies. Service is prompt, even during their busiest hours. Sushi also... More

Nice quiet local sushi and other variety of food. One of the few places to find sushi on a Sunday evening! Food is good and very fresh. Prices are nice at happy hour. A little steep otherwise. Consistent and reliable.

Have had lunch and dinner at Slow Fish as well as "take out". Every meal has been a very good experience. Been there with friends, for business and my sweetheart.

When in Huntington Beach, this is a great place for lunch -- quick or slow food service as you wish -- with lunch specials and typical Japanese restaurant services. Good for family, friends, business associates or solo.

It is hard to find good sushi in Huntington Beach area. There are so many places that claim to serve sushi but this is the only place to go. They have the BEST sushi, fantastic service and a cool atmosphere. It is tucked away in the back corner of the strip mall on Bolsa Chica and Edinger. The sushi chef... More

I was here for lunch, and had the lunch specials. It was o.k. They say it is Japanese, but the place is run by Koreans, I think, so their food actually have a "korean touch" to them, if that is what you are looking for.

We came in on a Thursday night, no waiting. They had happy hour specials 5-7pm of items from their regular menu, so we ended up with a mix of special pricing and regular price. The best item was the light but crunchy tempura (one shrimp piece plus 3 vegetable pieces of potato, broccoli, and asparagus (which you never see elsewhere).... More
