A small, casual restaurant serving a nice selection of Japanese food and sushi. Tasty fare, great service. If you eat here often, as we do, you're treated like family.

We were hanging out in Seal Beach the other day and decided to try this place. The sashimi was very fresh but I was a little disappointed in the rolls. It seemed that 90% of the rolls used the California roll as a base. The crunch rolls if you want anything other than just a plain one are all deep fried to. The tempura was good though as well as the teriyaki chicken. I thought it was a bit on the pricey side too but that's what you get when you go to Main Street. I do have to say that they were very friendly and it was a pleasure to have such great service. They all interacted with our 3 year old even one of the chefs. Don't expect room for a larger party though.

So here is where the Huh part comes in though, This middle aged man can in and asked for a plate of sushi but no shrimp. He didn't even specify what type and he brought his own plate. The staff though went above and beyond to help him out. Great place to people watch.

I enjoy really good Japanese food, so I found this mediocre. That being said, it is probably what most people understand under American-"Japanese." Since most people order rolls or drown their sushi in soy with wasabi, they probably don't notice the watery taste of the slices of fish - the same taste as when it is sliced, refrozen and rethawed. The staff was very friendly and the atmosphere pleasant enough, so that brought it up to average in my book. If you're a roll eater, you'll have fun, if you're more serious, you should probably move on.

Went in on a Saturday Evening, August 18, 2012 about 6:20p.m. Sat at the bar, older waitress came and took the drink order. Younger waitress came and asked if we had our order taken, older waitress came and brought the drinks and menus. Younger waitress came to check we had our drinks and walked off before we could ask a question.

Mind you, only half the seats were filled in the place and that is only about 40 seats.

We waited and waited and finally got up and left. Obviously they did not want our business.

Also, the bar next to us was dirty with bottles and glasses from the last customer, younger waitress took a couple of items and left the rest.

Couple who came in after us was able to ask questions and order, that is what signalled us to leave.

Total time in the location, about 10-15 minutes.
