After reading TripAdvisor reviews, we went for supper here. The place was almost empty, which didn't add much to the atmosphere. My husband chose the house special - Chilean sea bass marinated in soy sauce. The dish was presented nicely, but the fish itself was frozen, and not good. I had the wor wonton soup as a main course. It... More

Lunch specials were great! Great variety and generous portions for a lunch meal! Ben was great waiter! Had reassured us earlier when I called, that he would honor the lunch specials even if we were a little late (accident on the 5 fwy). We made it in with plenty of time to spare but that was really nice of Ben... More

Great prices for happy hour & lunch. Everything under $10 for a great meal. Mochi ice cream were delicious. Everything tastes fresh. Ben is a great waiter; very polite. Manager Brian is great.

We visited this place on February 19, 2013 to check out their happy hour food and was pleasantly surprised. Rosalia was our sever and she did a good job. The food came quickly and was attractively presented. The food was good including excellent Cream Cheese Wontons ( 4 large ones for only $3.50). We will return as this is another... More

My nephew had is wedding rehearsal dinner at FUGU'S. They accommodated 30 people very well. My sister and brother-in-law, who were paying for the dinner, said for $15.00 per person (without adult beverages), was a fantastic deal and we were all surprised at how much food there was. Everything was served family style, which worked out great. They provided PLENTY... More

I hadn't had sushi before and saw this restaurant on Groupon so we tried it out. We were pleased with the food, the atmosphere, and the service? And they did a great job helping me choose my 1st sushi restaurant experience.

We had a groupon for this restaurant and there are signs posted at every table regarding the use of the coupon, so if you do not have a coupon, you become aware very quickly that you should have one! Server even tells you that there are different menus for those with coupon and those without. Menu is very large as... More

We had never been here before, but had a Groupon and decided to check it out. The sushi rolls are very good, as was the fried calamari. The service was a bit slow, but it was pretty busy and on a weekend, so no complaint really. For 2 of us without the Groupon, it would have cost us $55.00. That's... More

We were impressed by the diversity and quality of the asian cuisine at Fugu and will return. We had Japanese sashimi, Chinese wok vegetables, California style specialty sushi rolls, Koren beef, and Chinese lemon chicken. All were delicious and made with fresh ingredients. The service was attentive. The facility is clean and nicely furnished with both seating available. Although we... More

Just got back from FUGU's and was extremely impressed with the food. The restaurant is nothing special is a bit out of the way from the main strip, but the food is unbelievably great. It is rare that I find a place that I really love and this is the place. It has moved into my top 5 favorite restaurants.... More
