Excellent Authentic Japanese Food! Maybe avoid the rolls though...

Seto Restaurant is definitely one of those places where you would totally miss it if you didn't look close enough. But once you get inside, it is a COMPLETELY different environment.

Seto Restaurant is definitely one of those places where you would totally miss it if you didn't look close enough. But once you get inside, it is a COMPLETELY different environment. The overall setting of the restaurant is aimed to be authentically Japanese, from the typical sitting style on pillows and low tables to the waitresses in kimonos. We sat... More

Just like the title says...we had to wait several minutes to be seated although there was no line, but we were able to pick a more private (less noisy) place to sit. The food was delicious and the lack of canned music allowed us to freely converse with each other. Great experience, will return again!

Our first time here, recommended by friends. Quality and size of portions were very good, sushi chef was 4 stars +. Our server was a downer. Pleasant enough, he seemed to disappear for long stretches - like after we ordered a 2nd round of drinks... We didn't think they were 25 minutes away, or we'd have ordered earlier. We didn't...

Decent food and variety. Definitely not upscale- perfect for a business lunch though. Quick service. Beto boxes allow you to try 2-3 different dishes for a low price, and you won't feel hungover for the afternoon from eating too much!!

I went to Seto because it was the highest ranked Sushi restaurant in Sunnyvale on Tripadvisor and it did not disappoint. It's not much to look at from the outside, and the interior is not very exciting either, but the sushi was very good and the staff was among the friendliest I've ever met. The seaweed salad was one of... More

This place reminds me of a good neighborhood local restaurant you can find on a lot of street corners in Japan. Of course, they also sell all of the American-style maki sushi rolls. And, I was happy to see Hand Rolls on the menu! They have Japan style private rooms (with the sliding paper door) for business meetings.

Being from a city where we can get a wide variety of Japanese food, Seto Japanese Cuisine was a lovely surprise for unique cuisine. The ambience is basic unless you are in a booth. The service more than makes up for that. They are very attentive even when it is busy. The food was fresh and flavorful with unique combinations... More

I go here with a Japanese friend and always let him order for us. My favorite is the dragon roll. They have a huge selection of food at a good price. Service is good. I've come for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed.

My coworkers and I love coming to this restaurant for lunch. We all order the "sushi lunch" special, which is excellent and a very good price. You get miso soup, CA rolls and 6 nigiri for $12.50.
