It had been three years since we'd been back. We sat at the bar as usual and the atmosphere seemed less "Tommy's" than I remember as far as the fun, energetic and very social sushi chefs. We were there as soon as they opened on Thursday night so maybe it hadn't warmed up yet. I do know that a couple... More

Dinner tonight with family was awesome. I love that there is a great variety of food choices and that we can take our time and enjoy not only the food but being able to relax and have a fun night of chatting without feeling rushed. Our favorite place to go for Japanese cuisine!

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.

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 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
