I've been to Bistro Anju 5 or 6 times over the past couple of years the last visit being yesterday. The food here is fantastic. The fish is always exceptional and they do all the Japanese classics as good as any Japanese restaurant I have been to in Orange County. The tempura, chicken karaage, agadashi tofu, kakuni pork, Japanese pickles,... More

Tried this restaurant based on the Yelp reviews and was very pleased with the food, the ambiance, and the value. This restaurant is really hidden away and you would only find it if you knew where to look. Despite this, the restaurant was busy, showing it has a loyal following. The service was very good, and the food was delicious!... More

We had read some positive reviews and decided to visit. I have to say the food was great, presented well, and was very tasty. Only downside was, for sushi it was very expensive.

A great find for us. I had the Poki donburi and karaage chicken. Nice flavor. Sushi was great. Very friendly people, great service. We'll be back.

This sushi restaurant was really good. I went for lunch, service was prompt and friendly. I'm only giving four stars because the lunch menu was somewhat disappointing. I'll come back for dinner to see if the options are better. There's a sushi restaurant a few more miles away that I prefer in Laguna Niguel.

The chef here is top notch and incredibly creative. The fish is as fresh as it gets and he combines everything with amazing and unique flavors.
