Well worth seeking out

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... read more

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!!

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.

Overall its a very pleasant place to come and we were guided through the menu making appropriate choices as a result However the whole evening was made - food and sake aside - by the most charming waitresses/hostess.

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.

As a frequent traveler I have become dependent on Tipadvisor reviews to find dinner, and this was another good recommendation! The atmosphere was fun, the service was good and the food was OUTSTANDING, I had mostly Sushi but tasted my wife's Terryaki chicken and it was the best I have ever tasted. You won't go wrong at Seto!

Went here with two colleagues from work as it was their turn to choose our dinner venue (during a 4 day business trip) and I must say I was very pleased with the simple but zen surroundings, the waitress staff in traditional Japanese dress and the excellent choice of food. We had a selection of soup, tempura (veggie and shrimp)... More
