“Excellent and worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Waited for 45 minutes for a table mid-week. During our wait we checked out another sushi place down the street and it was deserted so we decided to wait and see what the fuss was about.

Once we were seated our server brough us sake and miso soup on the house. Both very good.

We ordered a few of the specialty rolls including the caterpillar and the sushi on fire along with some sushi and a hand roll. They were all delicious and the flavor combinations of the rolls were unique and superb. The rice was also cooked to perfection, not too soft and not undercooked.

Unlike other reviewers, we did not really feel rushed. The service was very good and all the wait staff were friendly and full of smiles.

It was very loud though. Hard to hear a conversation at times but that's what you get in a busy place with a high ceiling, loud music and hard surfaces.

“Awesome food but....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

I would have given Sushi On Fire a higher rating but.... Don't think that you are going to go here on a Saturday night and enjoy a leisurely meal. That will not happen on Big Momma's watch! We felt very rushed and couldn't take time to enjoy the food/drinks. The running around, rushing us to order and eat was kind of stressful!
Food wise-
The rolls were awesome, I highly recommend the DK roll. If you are into your lips, throat and stomach burning, try the 911 roll. It tastes great but a little to hot for this girl. The 76 roll was also great!

“Yummm ~ Highly recommended:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

A little bit of a wait in this cozy, yet very busy restaurant ~ was to be expected on a Friday night in Huntington beach...Well worth the wait though. My teenage daughter's and I had the beef teriyaki and it was cooked to perfection. Hubby loved the filet mignon. We also enjoyed the California roll with very fresh and delicious ingredients, as were the cream filled won tons as an appetizer...A+:)

“Amazing sushi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Super Crowded? YES...because it is delicious. I mean DELICIOUS sushi, and worth the wait. Order several rolls and you always get free sake. Good and friendly - but crowded and loud. It helps to sit outside.
I love:
rolls with lobster, filet mignon, and SPICE. Try Girls on the beach, dynamite roll and Ken's Special.
I wish people would turn this into an adult time together - or date spot. Small kids belong at McDonalds. Just saying.

“Fresh outstanding sushi that is worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012 via mobile

We walked past sushi on fire after dinner one evening. The place was packed with a line out the door (always a good sign). Checked the reviews on trip advisor and tried it. This is now our all time favorite sushi place. We will have to go one more time before leaving to return home. Lemon taste and sauce with shrimp fried rice was unique and tasty. I substituted cream cheese for the bean sprouts in my veggie rolls. Excellent freshness. My daughter had the rainbow roll and husband had chicken teriyaki. Also had the goyzo appetizers. No doggie bags for us. We ate everything and were stuffed!
