Pricy but good

They sure know how to make sushi in the place. The area is small and compact, but the food is worth the inconvenience of being in such confined place. They can use some maintenance in their outside area.

First started going to Jizake's 4-5 yrs ago, definitely one of the best if not THE BEST sushi restaurant in South OC. Only issue is EVERYONE is aware and sometimes the wait can be a tad bit longer than you would prefer. Nonetheless, great service, fun atmosphere, outstanding sushi! Wish they would bring back the honorary saki bottles (certain customers... More

They do the whole Japanese restaurant thing right! I love sitting at the sushi bar, the head sushi chef is a master and the food is delicious, I've never been disappointed.

I live in New York and travel all over the world, i eat sushi all the time but there is nothing like jikaze in Laguna niguel california! Unique creations like their spring roll or popsicle roll or sushi pizza or several other unique creations of owner-chef "joe" Difficult to describe the pleasure and the refinement, you have to try it...

Top quality fish, expert preparation and some really creative specials. What more could you ask for in a sushi place? I particularly like the lollipop and Burrito. They're not only very tasty but no rice makes them low carb.

Nice small Sushi restaurant with a great view of the chefs prepping the sushi. The food is great at an affordable price. Service is outstanding and if you mention it is your birthday stand by to be surprised by the response of the entire restaurant. One of our go to places for our son's birthdays

There are always so many regulars at Jizake that dinner often is like a big get-together of friends. Owner-Chef Hiro-San runs a tight ship and the sushi is consistently phenomenal.

Jizake is unassuming from the outside in what appears to be an abandoned strip mall. Once inside, its small, real small...But those that know know that its the best sushi in south orange county. They don't take reservations so don't bother asking. Be prepared to wait 20-30 minutes to sit, and maybe longer if you're waiting for the sushi bar... More

I actually hesitate to write this review as it undoubtedly the more great reviews a restaurant gets, the less likelihood of getting a spot at the Sushi bar! All of the chefs at Jizake are skilled, but Joe's UFOs are incredible. You just tell him what you like and he makes a new creation for you. Truly works of art!... More
