we go to ichibiri in san clemente often and wanted to try one of the other locations for a change , we are not experts on sushi but as with the san clemente location we found it to be fresh well presented and good . This location is much smaller and they only serve beer and wine but the premium cold saki was nice I had a cold beer for a change of pace . This location seemed crowded and loud but the owner told us it usually isnt except for peak hours saturday night. The place had plenty of tepan tables and people seemed to enjoy the show and if you live near by or find yourself in the area I would give it a try. I normally order rainbow ,crunchy ,or caterpillar rolls and can recommend them all if but we also enjoy the chicken and steak dinners some times . We do recommend the premium cold saki if your not a big fan of the hot stuff ,its a lot different and very enjoyable. My only complaint was the hostess she was not very pleasant but could have been having a tough night so I wouldnt hold it against the place

The restaurant serves dull, run-of-the-mill Japanese food, in a dingy, stale-smelling atmosphere. This is not a place I'd recommend.

Both Restaurants are in shopping centers with plenty of free parking. We have not tried the Sushi but usually enjoy the Teppan.

We are regulars here. Visitors may not realize how easy it is to get to Greenfield from San Juan Capistrano. Just take the 5 to the 73 toll road and exit before paying a toll. Left on Greenfield, right into the shopping center, and there's a great teppan grill!

Very good food at a very fair price. Our kids love eating here. Go before six for great specials.
