Sushi Lineup

Sushi Lineup Jumbo Scallops Uni Bluefin Tuna Yellowtail Albacore Red Snapper Mackerel Orange County OC Sushi World

Did you know that you can come in and just get a lineup of sushi just like this? Take a seat at our sushi bar and interact with our sushi chefs The more they know about what you like, the more they'll be able to create a custom lineup with your preferences. Otherwise, you can just tell them how many pieces of sushi you'd like and they'll take care of the rest. It's another way we do "omakase." or Chef's Choice. Makes the decision process so much easier for everyone.

Don't Be the Only One Dressed Up!

Caterpillar Roll Jerks Costumes Halloween Tuna Red Snapper Tako Salmon Cypress OC Orange County Sushi World

Don't you hate it when you go out and everyone agrees to dress up and then it turns out you're the only one? Yeah, our Caterpillar Roll knows exactly how that feels, especially around a platter of tuna, salmon, tako, and red snapper nigiri. Come dressed up as a sushi roll and we'll give you a free sake! But please, if you do, take a picture while you're at Sushi World and post it publicly so that we can see it, too! We hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween out there. If you don't get enough treats, come on in! We'll surely "treat" you right!

Come dressed up in your favorite anime outfit and we will reward you with something nice. Best costume of the night will win something even nicer. And if we get enough input, we can play an anime movie or show on the tvs. We will open it up to everyone's suggestions. Sushi, sake, and some anime fun sounds like a pretty awesome Halloween night.

Spicy Tuna Roll - Sushi World

Orange County Best Happy Hour Spicy Tuna Roll All Day Mondays Tuesdays Sushi World

Sushi World's Happy Hour features several rolls like the pictured Spicy Tuna Roll. Our Spicy Tuna Roll isn't too spicy but we really keep to the basics on this roll. It's just a spicy tuna center with cucumber, and then rolled in seaweed and rice with a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Happy Hour is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 2pm till 5pm. We have quite the assortment of items to choose from on our HH menu, including sushi, appetizers, rolls, hand rolls, and beer!

Spicy Scallop Hand Roll

Spicy Scallop Hand Roll Cone Seaweed Cucumber Soy Paper Orange County OC Sushi World

Our Spicy Scallop Hand Roll is simple yet bursting with flavors. We take a big serving of scallops, mix it with our special creamy sauce that includes masago, and then wrap it in seaweed with a slice of cucumber. Pictured here is an alternative you may have if you prefer soy paper over seaweed. We can make any hand roll with either seaweed or soy paper. Both ways are delicious so it's just a matter of preference. You also can get a whole spicy scallop cut roll, if that's what you prefer.

Jalapeno Yellowtail for the Win

Jalapeno Yellowtail Sesame Seeds Ponzu Orange County Sushi World OC

You can never go wrong when you order our Jalapeno Yellowtail. It's low in carbs, women love it, it's great on dates, and it's extremely tasty! It all starts with perfectly sliced sashimi pieces laid out on our plate. It's then dressed with a ponzu mixed sauce and a jalapeno sauce blend along the top that has a lot of flavor and is not too spicy. And then we sprinkle some toasted sesame seeds on top. Yep, it's pretty perfect.

Yamaha Roll: Named After Our Neighbor in Cypress

Yamaha Roll Cypress Tempura Spicy Tuna Roll Avocado Green Onions Garlic Ponzu Orange County OC Sushi World

At Sushi World, we do have non-traditional sushi rolls, like our Yamaha Roll! It features a tempura spicy tuna roll with avocado and then it's topped with green onions and garlic ponzu. It is definitely not your traditional sushi roll as this is mostly a fried sushi roll. Did you know that the Yamaha corporate campus is located just a couple of blocks away from us here in Cypress? Wonder if anyone over there knows that we have a sushi roll here named after them! If anyone over at the Yamaha campus sees this, holler at us!

Mackerel: Saba

Mackerel Saba Cypress Healthy Shiny Skin Healthy Omega Sushi World Orange County OC

While it's not always on our Specials Board, you should try to order it whenever you do see Mackerel on there. Also known as Saba, Mackerel is very distinctive in its appearance thanks to its shiny skin. It's not for everyone, as there might be a fishy aftertaste that many sushi novices aren't used to. But if you have had it and have enjoyed it, you will also reap the benefits of it being a very healthy fish to eat as it is very high in fish oils, like Omega 3, which is why it is so shiny in the first place.

Sushi World's Salmon Skin Salad

Salmon Skin Salad OC Orange County Best Happy Hour Cypress Sushi World

Sushi World's Salmon Skin Salad is a nice-sized serving that is fresh and light and features quickly grilled salmon skin with a lot of guilt-free greens. It also has avocados and bonito flakes. It's a great item to get to accompany all that sushi you'll be eating.

Agedashi Tofu

Agedashi Tofu Dashi Lightly Battered Fried Green Onions Orange County Sushi World OC

We have quite an extensive menu and an item that has been humbly on there forever is our Agedashi Tofu. It's a very simple Japanese dish consisting of lightly battered and fried tofu cubes in a dashi sauce. A little green onion on top and that's about it. Very simple yet tasty. It's a great appetizer to get in between all that sushi you're eating while at Sushi World. Next time you swing by, be sure to look at our whole menu to see if there might be something else you enjoy. If not, always stick to your favorites. And also always check our Specials Board.

Happy 4th of July!

Sushi Combo Red White Blue Independence Day Happy 4th of July Sushi World Orange County OC Cypress

We hope everyone has a fun-filled and safe 4th of July holiday weekend. If you're driving anywhere, please drive carefully. We know everyone enjoys barbecuing and sushi is not always very popular on the 4th, so we'll be closed on Sunday for the 4th of July. Our employees could also use the break! But, we are open the following day on Monday which happens to be when we have Happy Hour all day. And you're not going to go to work the day after the 4th of July anyway.

Happy Memorial Day! Happy Hour All Day!

Happy Memorial Day Happy Hour All Day Sushi Sashimi Rolls Handrolls Sushi World Orange County OC

We honor and respect all of the women and men out there who have served and/or are serving in our military, especially those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect this great nation of ours. We truly salute you as you deserve more than just this day to honor you. Being that Memorial Day is on a Monday, we will have Happy Hour all day where you get to enjoy $2.99 sushi, $3.99 appetizers, $12 Sapporo pitchers, and quite a few other specially priced items. And in case you miss it on Monday, it's all day on Tuesday as well.

Japanese Jumbo Scallops, Ankimo, Amaebi

Japanese Jumbo Scallops Monkfish Liver Ankimo Amaebi Live Sweet Shrimp Oysters Orange County OC

Every time you come to visit Sushi World, you can have something different. And we encourage you to try something different every time. Some items to consider adding to your sushi repertoire are our Japanese Jumbo Scallops, in-house made Ankimo (Monkfish Liver), fresh Amaebi (Live Sweet Shrimp) with deep fried heads, and our freshly shucked Oysters on a half shell. All are fantastic on their own but we highly recommend you try them all out eventually.

Get Your Live Sweet Shrimp! Amaebi

Live Sweet Shrimp Amaebi Deep Fried Heads Cypress Orange County OC Sushi World

We have a tank of live sweet shrimp always ready for our special customers who enjoy amaebi. We understand that it's not for everyone but we do strongly suggest you try it at least once in your lifetime. We use the body of the live sweet shrimp and make it into a nigiri sushi or sashimi (your choice!) that is absolutely delicious. And then, we take the heads, lightly batter them, and then deep fry them for you. It's like eating sweet shrimp potato chips. So you have the two contrasting textures: the softness of the shrimp's body and the crunchiness of the heads.

Happy Sushi Weekend

Red Snapper Bluefin Tuna Salmon Yellowtail Omakase Orange County OC Sushi World

What consists of a happy sushi weekend? Well, come on in and visit us one of these weekends and you'll soon find out. We have a number of different omakase-style meals where it's our sushi chef's choice on what to serve you. It's a great deal and you'll get to sample a variety of our freshest sushi. The sushi in this picture is just a few of the items that we regularly feature at our sushi bar, like Red Snapper, Bluefin Tuna, Yellowtail, and Salmon. But we also have such favorites as Truffle Salmon, Halibut, and Japanese Jumbo Scallops.

Shrimp Tempura Udon Curry

Orange County Japanese Curry Shrimp Tempura Udon Warm Carrots Rich Yummy

Our Japanese Curry menu is growing! Due to popular demand, we now offer a Shrimp Tempura Curry Udon! We have several new curry offerings like this one in addition to our original Chicken Katsu, Pork Katsu, and Potato Croquettes. Our Japanese Curry is made in-house with plenty of veggies and spices. It's a great option if you want something filling to accompany your sushi meal.

Miso Marinated Cod

Miso Marinated Black Cod Orange County Sushi World Japanese Restaurant

Being a sushi restaurant, not all of our fish or food is served raw. We also have a full kitchen behind our sushi bar ready to serve up a number of various items for patrons looking for something other than sushi, like Hamachi Kama (Yellowtail Collar), Salmon Colllar, Salmon Teriyaki, Chicken Katsu, and the pictured, Miso Marinated Black Cod. They can come a la carte (with rice), or as a combo with Miso Soup, Rice, House Salad, and 5 pieces of Mixed Tempura. It's a great option, especially when you come with a big group where someone is not yet comfortable with sushi.

Merry Uni Christmas, Everyone!

Merry Christmas Orange County OC Sushi Uni Sea Urchin Sushi World Cypress

Who's Ready for Some Sake?

Sake  Sho Chiku Bai Vanilla Custard Cinnamon Sushi Chef Orange County OC Sushi World

Who isn't ready for some sake? This bottle is Sho Chiku Bai, which is a Tokubetsu Junmai. It has aromas of Vanilla, Custard, Cinnamon, and Toasted Rice. Sushi just tastes so much better when it's coupled with the right type of sake. Our servers are well versed and will be able to point you in the correct direction, depending on your tastes and what you order. Some sakes taste better only after eating certain types of fish. That's why we have sake tastings.

Spanish Mackerel

Orange County Sushi Fresh Best Spanish Mackerel Aji Nigiri Green Onions

If you want to move on from sushi basics, try out our Spanish Mackerel (Aji). Just to give you a heads up, it can be fishy if you're not accustomed to it. It's very distinctive as it usually comes with a bit of shiny skin, which is due to the healthy amounts of fish oil in it.

Bluefin TunaPalooza

Bluefin TunaPalooza Special Orange County OC Sushi World Tartare

Thanks to our recent 200+ lb catch, Bluefin TunaPalooza is back! Come get some fresh Bluefin Tuna Tartare! Topped with Avocado, Ikura, and Tobiko, it also comes with some seaweed strips, seaweed salad, and some bomb dot com sauce. We have several Bluefin specials like our Spicy Bluefin Tuna Roll & Handroll as well as a Spicy Bluefin Tuna Nigiri with a Quail Egg on top. But you can also just get Bluefin Tuna or Toro Nigiri or Sashimi.

Party Platter

Orange County Sushi Party Platter Tuna Tekka Maki Yellowtail Albacore Peppered Salmon

If you have a gathering and need something to wow everyone, try one of our custom party platters! We can make it consist of your favorites or you can leave it up to our awesomely talented chefs to pick and choose what they think would be best for your gathering. The one pictured features bluefin tuna, yellowtail, peppered salmon, albacore, salmon, tekka maki (tuna rolls), and cucumber rolls. It's quite a variety but you can also add a few of our sushi rolls, too. Oh, and you don't have to have a gathering in order to get one of our platters.

Bluefin Tuna Special

Bluefin Tuna Toro Sashimi Sushi 200 lb Orange County OC Sushi Chef

Sushi World has been fortunate enough to acquire a 200+ lb Bluefin Tuna and we want to share it with you! Bluefin Tuna Palooza is on! Check out this beautiful slab of freshly cut Bluefin Tuna Belly (Toro). Come and get it while we still have it. This is the part that always goes first and it goes fast. Be sure to also check out all the other special Bluefin Tuna items we temporarily have. Call us at (714) 828-3474 for all take-out and reservations!

Outdoor Dining Available

Orange County Sushi Outside Al Fresco Dining Fresh Raw Cypress OC

Dining-in has been restricted once again so we are now offering Dine-out! We've set up a few tables outside so that you may enjoy the beautiful OC weather while still getting your sushi fix in. As we are limited in the number of tables we can have outside everyday, please call us at (714) 828-3474 to make reservations. You can also call us at that number to place all take-out orders as well. Happy Hour is all day on Mon & Tue, 2pm-5pm Wed-Fri.

Speedo Roll

Speedo Roll Spicy Tuna Crab Escolar Cilantro Tomatoes Orange County Sushi World OC

The Speedo Roll has officially arrived at Sushi World! Like our Yamaha Roll, we named it after one of our many awesome corporate neighbors in Cypress. Employees from Speedo often frequent Sushi World so we thought it appropriate for us to show them some love with a roll of their own. It features a center of Spicy Tuna, Spicy Crab, and Avocado. It's topped with Escolar, Cilantro, Tomatoes, and Toasted Sesame Seeds. Lightly dressed with a sweet sauce to finish it off. Which neighbor wants the next roll named after them?

Baked Blue Crab Roll by Sushi World

Baked Blue Crab Roll Garlic Aioli Soy Paper Orange County Sushi World OC

A favorite roll from many of our regulars is our Baked Blue Crab Rolls. We make the baked blue crab with garlic aioli fresh in house so you know it's gotta be good! It's accompanied by a little bit of rice and then wrapped in a sesame soy paper. You can always ask for it wrapped in seaweed but we believe it tastes better wrapped in the soy paper. You can also get it as a hand roll if you want it all for yourself. And, there's no raw fish so it's definitely sushi-virgin friendly. We love virgins.
