The first thing we noticed upon being seated was the number of tables with dirty dishes on them that hadn't yet been cleaned. There seemed to only be two people on wait staff that evening, which didn't seem nearly enough. Our waitress seemed overwhelmed and wasn't particularly welcoming. We ordered a combination plate that included ice cream for dessert, and... More

How many Bengali Sushi chef do you know? This is a first for me too. Chef is Bengali, Japanese citizen trained by Sushi chefs in Tokyo. His creations are out of this world. Do not expect regular sushi here. He will make you sushi which you have not tasted before and a work of art. Other food is great too.... More

I remember I went to the restaurant before and liked their tempura. The most recent visit was a complete disappointment. The service is very slow, the waitress did not know how the lunch special works and misled us. When we finally got our miso soup served after 30 minutes waiting, it was cold already. The portion is small, nothing is... More

I ordered pieces a-la-carte off the menu, and was pretty happy with the quality of the fish and presentation. It is my own fault that I wasn't paying too close attention to the prices as I ordered. By the time I was full, I had racked up a $50 bill. That's not as bad as it sounds. I have been... More

I am visiting this place since almost 25 years on a regular basis during my business trips to the area. I haven't been in the area for nearly six years. So I was really looking forward to revisit Seto with my family (wife and two 3.5 and 5.5 years old sons) and meet some of my old contacts. Unfortunately all... More

I went there a couple of times with my staff for lunch. They offer bento boxes with 2 and 3 items. I chose the tempura, sashimi and beef teriyaki! Everything was perfect! Great location with great quality food.

We had not been to Seto for the past five years or so, but after our favorite sushi place in Sunnyvale closed end of last year, we had been testing quite a few sushi restaurants in Sunnyvale, and finally went back to Seto. We found Seto be a little quieter (early on a Wednesday night) than what we were used... More

Went with another couple last night. They were very familiar with this place . . . could advise us what's hot and what's not. I don't do sashimi. But the guys said it was outstanding. I had steak teriyaki. Steak was cooked perfectly. Sauce . . . Unremarkable. Never saw accompanying soup or salad. Veg tempura tasty, crisp, not greasy.... More

Seto Restaurant is definitely one of those places where you would totally miss it if you didn't look close enough. But once you get inside, it is a COMPLETELY different environment. The overall setting of the restaurant is aimed to be authentically Japanese, from the typical sitting style on pillows and low tables to the waitresses in kimonos. We sat... More

Just like the title says...we had to wait several minutes to be seated although there was no line, but we were able to pick a more private (less noisy) place to sit. The food was delicious and the lack of canned music allowed us to freely converse with each other. Great experience, will return again!
