“Great place for sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The sushi here is fresh and the sushi chefs are excellent. They are very attentive and usually give you some items on the house. I recommend trying the baked oysters. The green pesto and mayo sauce on it is so delicious.

“Fresh sushi, friendly service, and fair prices.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Hatchi runs the place and its very tasty, clean, friendly and reasonably priced. I go here about twice a month for my sushi fix. It's not my #1 spot, but its pretty high up there. I would highly recommend!

“Best Sushi you'll find anywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

It's a hole in the wall between a donut shop and an AT&T store in your typical Huntington Beach strip mall, but seriously, this is the best little sushi place we've ever been to in California and elsewhere. Other places are ok, but I'm always comparing them to Gesshin, and I'm always a little disappointed. Things that stand out here: Yellowtail Sashimi and sushi. BEST cuts ever. It's like dessert. The owner must have a buddy down at the docks because nobody has better Yellowtail, and nobody is as generous with it. Their Ahi tuna is also always very good. Treat yourself to a live scallop if they're on special when you go...they shuck it and slice it super thing over ice and lemon slices and it's so fresh and amazing. Roll-wise I couldn't go without ordering a Hatchi Special (salmon on top with sliced onion and Hatchi's special sauce...he's the owner, and he's so cool...) All of their other rolls are great, and they're the type you can find on most sushi menus, but the quality of this place is just way above anywhere else I've been. I hesitate to even bother having sushi anywhere else.

“Really good Japanese food...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This place has about 10 or 11 tables and a small bar to eat at, so it's not a big restaurant, but the food is excellant. The selection is also very good, starting with the appetizers. The drinks are Sake and beer, besides the normal sodas, teas, etc. Food was served fast and hot, with ample portions. There was 5 of us and everyone said their food was very good.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2008

If this is the Sushi Gesshin restaurant I'm hoping for, then hands down this little hole in the wall has the best sushi in Huntington! I couldn't name all of the rolls that I at, but they were all DELISH! If you check it out, say hi to Hadji!!!
