I am visiting this place since almost 25 years on a regular basis during my business trips to the area. I haven't been in the area for nearly six years. So I was really looking forward to revisit Seto with my family (wife and two 3.5 and 5.5 years old sons) and meet some of my old contacts. Unfortunatelyall the customer facing staff members had changed. However, the new ones are as friendly and attentive as the old ones.The interior has been slightly updated but still a very simple modern straight forward Japanese design.So we ordered a de luxe sushi plate as well as a large sashimi moriawase. The fish could not be fresher. It melted in our mouths. My 5 year old son got excited as his parents did (see his comments on "Sushi Confidential " in Campbell) Having had sushi in many different places around the globe I had to return to Seto after almost six years to be reminded what a perfect sushi and sashimi looks and tastes like.The sevice was impeccable, fast and without flaw. The boys even got a bottle of Calpico each (a Japanese milk based soft drink) as a gift when we left. If you really want outstanding Japanese cuisine, specifically sushi and sashimi you MUST visit this place. It is not cheap but worth every single cent!

We arrived at 5 PM and were seated quickly.... the restaurant was clean with friendly and efficient service.We tried the Dynasty Roll: Shrimp Tempura with Crab, Avocado, Cucumber, Smoked Salmon, Yuzu and Tobiko with a Ponzu sauce. Good taste with a slight crunch.The Shiitake Roll has very good flavor with a nice firmness to the mushroom.The Chicken Sukiyaki has great flavor, not too salty... the yam noodles were perfect.We will return to try other items on their menu.

I am not an enthusiast for "fusion" cuisine normally. I prefer traditional cooking within a genre, authentic ingredients, and, especially for Japanese, a classic, simple presentation. But my initial skepticism immediately melted away when the starters arrived. Course after course, plate after plate, the magicians at Gochi impressed and won me over, and by the clay pot finale, I was their new best fan. Gochi is very difficult to get into without a reservation, so it indicated the level of demand for this small specialty Japanese restaurant located in a suburb of Cupertino. Now I understand all the fuss.Every dish was excellent, perfect. The small plate concept was brilliant and superbly applied. Everyone in our party of four ordered a couple of dishes and they just came out in a delicious, culinary parade. A tour for the senses. We did not know what would arrive next, so the element of surprise whetted our appetites. Familiar notes were mixed with new elements, all with artistic presentation. Baked oysters, eggplant, salmon ceviche, tempura prawns, and oh! this marvelous crispy rice in champon glaze! (brought me back to my childhood when us kids would fight for the crispy rice treat). The cooking was brilliant.Though I wholeheartedly recommend Gochi, I do not know how others would experience it. I mean, if you are expecting the straight traditional Japanese restaurant (sushi and teriyaki), this is not it. But if you are ready for a taste adventure a bit outside the box, this is most definitely the place.

Nice small ramen shop in downtown Sunnyvale. Can get crowded but turnover is pretty fast. Appetizers of chicken karate and gyoza are good and tasty. My tonkatsu ramen was with very flavorable broth, nice ramen noodles with good texture. My wife's seafood ramen was also good. I thought the ingredients were a bit skimpy, only one shrimp in a seafood ramen and only two pieces of pork in my ramen. Prices may be higher now than in earlier reviews. Service was quick and friendly but they skipped our table originally, and I had to flag down service to get water, refills, and spices. I'm not sure this is well above other ramen shops in the area but this one is decent.

We went here for a family dinner on a Sunday after watching a movie at a nearby theater.Dinner combinations and sushi are fresh, well presented and have great taste.Sushi Tomi is located in a quiet area of downtown Mountain View and is a very good choice if you are in the area.It is a somewhat small and popular restaurant with good service.In order to avoid waiting, we recommend arriving as the restaurant is opening.

This excellent restaurant is completely out of place in its area, where it is surrounded by fast-food restaurants and uninspiring store fronts. We went there twice in a week, and there were guests waiting for tables at all times. We waited 10 minutes the first time and 2 minutes the second time.The menu, containing perhaps a hundred different dishes, is a bit overwhelming for someone like me who is not too familiar with Japanese food. Each dish is described in around three words. The waiter was helpful, but there was only so much he could do. I was happy with my selection, but it may have been mostly luck on my first visit. On my second visit I had sashimi, which was excellent -- especially considering how cheap it was.
