Was here with friends while in area. Was called Yen and now Crazy Rockin Sushi. Not fancy or sophisticated by any means. Fresh sashimi, good portions, innovative tools. Reasonable prices, good value. Beer, wine and sake only.

A great local sushi place that you won't regret trying. Flavor, freshness and variety! Try the Sunshine roll and their Lobster Roll. Adding this to my list of favorite sushi places! =)

I like the cucumber roll (no rice) and the sashimi salad. It has a solid sushi menu and bento box and udon options. Located near a starbucks you can grab your coffee on the way out....

I have a good friend who raves about this place. To be honest, the first time I saw one of their roles, I was disconcerted to see that it was stuffed full of rice with very little else. Now, after multiple tastings, this place has grown on me. I don't order their rolls any longer, but can vouch for their... More

these guys have really good sushi and the price is cheap! the service is great and they are friendly. Choose this place and you cannot go wrong. The volcano roll is my favorite. I eat here about every 3 months and if I want sushi this is the only place I go.

We've been going to Yen for about 3 years. Nice, clean little place in a shopping mall in Irvine. Great service and excellent food. We usually get the bento box - just the right amount of food - leaving room for a bit of green tea ice cream. We go before 6:00 PM on weekends as the UCI students start... More

The prices are great; it's pretty cheap for a good amount of sushi. Their udon is amazing, too. The sushi chefs are very friendly, and the staff is attentive for the most part.
