Our family been frequenting this restaurant since 2013 and we always have great dining experience here.The authentic Japanese food here is comprehensive in addition to other Asian specialties. Sushi, Sashimi, Makizushi, Yakiniku, Yakitori, Temporas, Sukiyaki, Udon, Ramen, Soba, Miso soup, and about a 100 types of food including salads, fruits, and deserts. There is also a sushi bar where they will make sushi rolls to order as you desire. Protein varieties in the hot stations including beef, pork, chicken, fish, shellfish, crustaceans, and Tofu (for the vegetarians out there). All the food is fresh and cooked/prepared to perfection. The prices are very reasonable and actually the best value in Orange County for a restaurant/buffet due the high quality and the expert preparation of this food. The buffet food is replenished generously and continuously. The service is very friendly and efficient throughout and we highly recommend this place.

In town for business, this area is tough. Lots of housing/condos and hotels, dining super spread out, so everyone is busy for dinner!Thankfully they deliver via GH!Had shrimp yakisoba (make spicy) and takoyaki. Both super tasty!! Especially the takoyaki!Was not very spicy, even though I requested it to be. Still very tasty. Not many shrimp. But, very pleased with the food and speed of service!!!

Taiko

Reviewed By iluv2eatntravel

Just love the combo lunch/dinners and superbly fresh sushi and sashimi served at Taiko. Their Sesame Chicken is a must which is a type of karage (fried) chicken, probably one of the tastiest karage chicken we have tasted and pretty addictive. There is always a wait whenever we come here whether it’s lunch or dinner but the wait is worth it but definitely try to go early to beat the crowd.

Fukada Restaurant

Reviewed By semanticvision

This restaurant specializes the thinly sliced noodle called somen. Their somen are made fresh daily. You can choose various ingredients to go with the somen in a hot soup style dish. Or you can choose to have cold style preparation that comes with dipping sauce. Many other dishes are delicious as well, duck breast is one of my favorite, grilled fish is also executed well, Japanese style omelette, fried chicken pieces are some of the dishes I enjoy.

HiroNori Craft Ramen

Reviewed By En L

Everything here was delicious. Kind of pricey for Ramen but this is Irvine. Very clean establishment with attentive waiters. They constantly came by to see if we needed anything and refilled drinks promptly. It's kind of small and there was a wait for us to get inside. I wish I had known to put in our name on the wait list online. My daughter got the Vegan Ramen which actually looked pretty good so I tried it. It was very tasty for vegan however I preferred my Tonkotsu Ramen which was rich and hearty. Requested the black garlic oil which they gave me for free as a first time visitor. I used it sparingly since the ramen already had tons of flavor. Got the Crispy Chicken which was just alright. Not what I expected I guess. Overall pretty happy with this find.
