Dinner was great!

Had Philidelphia Rolls, Spicy Tuna Handrolls, Yellowtail Onion Rolls, Poki Sashimi, Tonkatsu... It was all fresh and very good. Service was great and more importantly the wife left in a great mood after a tough day. For the most part stick to the sushi and sashimi. Cooked food can be average.

I've been going to Tommy's for more than 15 years now. It's not fancy. It's not expensive. But it has some of the best sushi in Orange County! The Poki Bowl is a must... usually get the medium ~ Spicy! Next is the Soft Shell Crab Hand Roll. I have never found another sushi restaurant that can match Tommy's.

I was really hoping that this was a "find" - a hole in the wall with delicious Japanese food. Unfortunately, it failed to deliver. I ordered a simple plated dinner of Hibachi Salmon. It came with miso soup (very good, very hot which I like), rice and salad. The salmon was not a mild and rich fish at all, it... More

Tommy's Sushi Japanese Restaurant has been around a long time and has been a favorite of most of my family for years. It's the easy place to pick with good service, good food preparation, and the usual selection of Japanese beers. The prices are reasonable and not over-priced to suit some pseudo image of eclectic dining.

I used to love this place and go there a lot for lunch with my husband. The poki bowl was addictive. However the quality went down and the prices went up. The place is not very clean that is why they keep it so dark. The menus are dirty and sticky. They are cutting corners to make the poki bowl... More

The Tommy's poke bowl has been my favorite sushi dish in the world since I first had it back in May 2004. Well, the sushi staff seems to have changed and the taste of the food is not as good as it has been. The poke bowl was nearly as tasty as always but something was off. The galaxy hand... More

Having had our fill of Chinese, Mexican, Italian, and fast food, my wife and I decided on Japanese. Using Scout App on her iPhone, my wife found Tommy's, a short distance from our hotel. We strolled in around 8:45pm and waited to be escorted to the table. We sat Japanese style. While deciding on our order, I had a Corona.... More
