4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2011

Sushi was fresh, service spot on, great experience do not be fooled by the outside. If you are not to limber get a table or bar spot.

“Feels like in Japan!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2011

I like going to this place after work. They open 'til 1:30am. It's always nice to know this place opens late. The atmosphere is nice. Feels like you are in totally different place. The food is awesome! I always get chicken meatball. So GOOD! They have variety of Japanese like ramen, sushi, and yakitori. Expect to wait at least 15 mins.

“Great Yakatori”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2011

My friend from Costa Mesa took me where while I was visiting to show me something different and it was a great experience. The place has an authentic Japanese vibe and all my friend ordered were a variety of skewers and the fish cheek. The fish cheek was fresh, sweet and tender, the best meat on a fish!

We had chicken, hearts, giblets and all other bits and pieces which were all cooked perfectly. This meant that the meats were still juicy and tender and was all so good! Combined with some hot sake, this was definitely a great meal in SoCal. Now to find a place like this back in Sydney Australia .....

“We had great food, and a lot of fun too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2011

This place is just wonderful. The staff were more than helpful in any way they could. A great feast, I had as a main course the soft shell crab roll, amazing. The quail eggs, I just loved, hard to find any place that sereves them. I cannot wait to go back to this place. Good food always makes for a good time, and we had a wonderful time here

“Yakitori and alcohol with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2010

It is rare to find a Japanese restaurant that offers good food and reasonably priced alcohol in Orange County. Honda Ya is definitely one of the exceptions and is often our destination when celebrating birthdays or spending an evening out with friends. The casual atmosphere encourages conversation along with the reasonably priced pitchers of Kirin beer (on tap), Sojo and Sochu.

In terms of food, I would not recommend this restaurant for traditional Sushi or Sashimi. Instead, focus on the Yakitori and the Daily Specials. Portions are small allowing you to sample a wide variety of dishes. Highly recommended are the Spicy Wings and Meatballs.
