This restaurant should change its motto to terrible service and uncooked rice. My iced tea came out with the food. But my candy dragon prawns were fantastic.

We got take out from Starfish while visiting Laguna and everything was delicious. The pork buns were some of the best I have ever had. Just the right amount of sweet and spicy. We also ordered the Korean tacos, shrimp spring rolls and a lobster roll. They were all very good. We would definitely eat there again!

Local gem located in shopping center across from Montage Resort. From the moment you walk in you are surprised with the ambience. Food was delicious and service was great. We ordered multiple plates; lemon chicken was best I have ever had, Mongolian beef dish was fabulous, dumplings were yummy too. We will return soon. We did make reservations but did... More

I went to Starfish last week with my mother and mother-in-law while on a trip back to the U.S. I had not been there before, but had heard mixed reviews. I anticipated an interesting menu, since it is a Nancy Wilhelm restaurant, and I was definitely right about that one. We went for "happy hour" on a Thursday, which runs... More

We have had really good food here in the past but were really disappointed when we stopped in for lunch. First they served old, wilted lettuce for the lettuce wraps and forgot the crunchy cashews. The Japanese eggplant was great but they overcharged us by $2 for it. The green beans were also very good. When we alerted our server... More

A return visit to what is a strip mall with a great restaurant. Each time I've had something different and great. My only hesitation is that for lunch, it's dark and clubby. Not what I seek at the beach. Food wonderful, especially sushi. Go, enjoy and do so for dinner unless you want to get out of the sun completely

Nice location, easy parking for Laguna. Server a little pushy, but service was ok. Great looking bar, after 6 pm they dim the lights, so it pretty dark. Good but not great meal, tasty, rice way over cooked. We will be back to try some other dishes.
