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

My friends recommend me from long time ago. So, I decided to go. One of the reason people like this place is probably the portion of foods. The quality is okay, but not impressive. I went there busy lunch time with my partner. But the service is very disappointed. They took our order with not standing there, walking... No eye... More

Ive been a regular at Tommy's for 20 years. The Crunchy Roll, the Baked Scallop roll and the soft shell cab rolls are devine. I have friends who look forward to visiting Tustin from MN, No Calif and Pasadena JUST for this place. It's true the place is a little darks and dirty, the food more than makes up for... More

The food there is always fresh and tasty. The service is wonderful, fast and polite.The chefs are very friendly and it's a fun atmosphere at the sushi bar. It's a hole in the wall. The inside interior isn't that great, luckly there are no windows inside, you won't be able to see the dust. But you come for the excellent... More

Went here for sushi....If you need a picture menu then this place is not for you. They have various sushi rolls but no description of what is in them! I settled for a small poki bowl (9.00), one of the pricier items on the sushi menu. It was delicious!!! Looks like this place gets really busy, so get there early... More
