The main feature of our restaurant truly is our sushi bar. While most of us are accustomed to sitting at a regular table at most other restaurants, we truly want to encourage you to take a seat at our sushi bar any chance you get. You'll get personalized service plus you can build a rapport with our awesomely talented sushi chefs. The more they get to know what you like, the more they'll be able to make recommendations to you in the future. Plus, you'll probably always get your food faster than anyone else in the restaurant.

Just come on in from 2pm till 5pm on all other days (including the weekends!) and you get $2.50 sushi, $2.50 sake, $3.50 appetizers, and $10 Sapporo pitchers.

Might as well enjoy it with sushi and sake.
Our Sake Tasting event is this Thursday, March 3rd! We're excited and hope that you are, too! We have 3 awesome killer deals for our Sake Tasting. The first is 12 various sakes for only $25. if 12 different sakes are too much for you, you can always choose our 2 other deals. 6 basic sakes for only $10 or 6 premium sakes for $20. It really depends on your sake expertise as well as how much you can take. All tastes are 1 ounce shots. We encourage everyone to drink responsibly and bring a designated driver if possible. If not, please Uber.
It's Fish Fridays! It is lent so it is the perfect day to come on in for some fresh sushi! We have all the usual line ups as well as many different specials that change all the time. You have to come in to see what they are. In the meantime, rest assured that we will always have a fresh inventory of the usual suspects, such as the ones pictured. Seared escolar, albacore, salmon, and red snapper. Looks delicious doesn't it? Well, it tastes even better than it looks. Have a great weekend everyone!
We love it when you get Monday off because you also get to come in and enjoy Happy Hour all day on Mondays! It's also all day on Tuesdays and on all other days from 2pm till 5pm, even on the weekends! So you see. It's kinda like a holiday everyday for us.

Thought we were in the middle of winter? Why is it in the 80s? Only in Southern California. In any case, we'd like to remind you a little bit about winter with our Snowman Roll. There's nothing cold or wintery about it, though. It's called the Snowman Roll because it's has a snow crab mix in the middle of it. Also has a shrimp tempura in the middle with a soy paper on the outside. It's actually good any time of the year and with any type of sushi eater, especially sushi virgins who still can't eat raw fish. Because there isn't any in this roll.
We love Iichiko and you should, too! Just to clarify, it's not a sake or a soju, as many might mistaken. It's a Japanese shochu, which is traditionally distilled from sweet potato, barley, rice, and other ingredients. Sake is fermented and is typically not as high in alcohol content. So be careful with Iichiko! It will sneak up on you. It's also considered a higher quality than soju, which is much more popular and mass produced. Drink your Iichiko with a little bit of tea, preferably oolong tea or a soda water and some lemon juice.
What's in our Volcano Roll? It's a spicy tuna roll topped with tempura rock shrimp and dressed with a basil oil. We don't use basil oil very often but we find that it complements the tempura rock shrimp very well. This is definitely not your typical basic sushi roll. It's got some different flavors and textures going that are not found in traditional sushi rolls. Why is it called a Volcano Roll? Because it's erupting with flavors and they all kinda look like a group of volcano islands sushi bites. Yeah, that's the best description for them. Volcano islands sushi bites.
We are nothing without our sushi chefs! They are all hard-working, talented, and eager to please all of our customers. They don't hide behind in the kitchen. They're out, front and center, for all who enter our restaurant. So you get to see who is preparing your food and you can actually see them prepare your food right in front of you. If you come often enough, our sushi chefs will know what you like and will suggest similar items that you might like in the future. That's what happens when you build a rapport with our sushi chefs.
It's always on our Happy Hour menu and it's often overlooked. Our Salmon Skin Salad is a great complement to any meal with us. And during Happy Hour, it's only $3.50. Happy Hour is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and on all other days from 2pm till 5pm. Our Salmon Skin Salad comes with a nice combination of mixed greens along with strips of crispy salmon skin and then dressed with a ponzu based dressing. It's quite tasty and light, and goes well with fish and rice, if you know what we mean.
We're at the tail end of January so it's time to see how everyone has been doing on their new year's resolutions. It's always a big topic at the beginning of the year and then it fades away and everyone usually drops their resolutions. We want you to be healthier. We want you to eat more fish, obviously. Come on in and we'll help you keep those resolutions of eating more healthy. Ask our awesome sushi chefs to whip up a platter like this one and you'll be all set. Yummy overload and it's good for you!

For those of you enjoying a day off in honor of MLK, you should most definitely come in and spend the whole day with us.
Yep, we have an Atlantic Dragon Roll but not Pacific Dragon Roll. Seems kinda odd, considering we're right next to the Pacific. Do dragons not exist in the Pacific? Must be so. Anyway, our Atlantic Dragon Roll features a center of salmon, cucumber, and avocado. It's topped with peppered salmon, a slice of serrano pepper, red onions, and then lightly dressed with a ponzu sauce. If you like salmon, this is the roll for you. You get it on the inside and out! Come on in and try out all of our dragon rolls!
We don't hold back when we give you a serving of Ikura. That's how much we love it and that's how much we know you'll love it. For those that don't know, Ikura is salmon roe. It has a very distinct taste, like a nice sharp salty flavor. The best part is when they burst in your mouth as you're eating them. They go well with a lot of other sushi dishes but we often get them as is because they're just as enjoyable on their own. Get a few orders today to see what we're talking about. It'll soon become one of your sushi favorites.
Life is full of decisions. We want to make them as easy as possible for you when you visit us. We always recommend our patrons fill out our sushi forms but if you come enough, our sushi chefs will know what you like and will prepare them accordingly. If the restaurant isn't too busy, you can even yell out your orders to our awesome, professional sushi chefs. So choose wisely and choose fish. Lots of it. You can't go wrong with that. There are plenty other things in your life that you should worry about. Like your New Year's resolutions.
Here we go again. The best Happy Hour in all of Orange County is all day on Mondays and Tuesdays and it's the best way to get every work week started.

If you don't make it in at any time on Mondays and Tuesdays, come in on any other day from 2pm till 5pm.
We often neglect how great our Ikura is so we're going to give some special attention to it the next couple of weeks. As we do with everything on our menu, we go out of our way to find the best quality products at the most reasonable prices so that we can pass on to you quality sushi and Japanese cuisine that is delicious and affordable. If you're not already an Ikura fan, you should try it out. It's quite delightful on its own or when it's used to help garnish one of our other plates.
We have a number of awesome appetizers on our Happy Hour menu including the pictured Baked Mussels. We can eat those all day long and they're only $3.50 on our Happy Hour menu which is all day on Mondays & Tuesdays and on all other days from 2pm till 5pm. Also enjoy $2.50 sushi, $2.50 sake, and $10 Sapporo pitchers!

Every 3rd Wednesday, come on by and enjoy the evening sounds of another session of b.eats from 6pm till 9pm. Get some sushi and some sake and sit back and relax as DJs Ryan Live, Ayebert, and A1 perform a session for Union Radio Station. In case you're wondering what's in the image, that's a Tekka Maki, a classic sushi roll of just tuna, rice, and seaweed. It's a basic roll but sushi sometimes needs to be basic. It doesn't always have to be complicated with too many contrasting tastes. Try it out to start your meal tonight!
It's getting a bit chilly here in Orange County, well, chilly for us Southern California folks. If you need a little soup to help warm you up, get our Shrimp Tempura Udon Soup. It's light, delicious, and will warm you up from the inside out. We don't often post about it, but despite being a sushi restaurant, we also are a Japanese restaurant that offers regular items that non-sushi lovers can enjoy, like this Shrimp Tempura Udon and our Chicken Teriyaki Bento Boxes. Come on in and bring the whole gang. We'll surely have something for everyone.
That's right!

We named our signature sushi roll after our home, Cypress. We love it here, especially where we are located, which is right next to Anaheim, Garden Grove, and Stanton. Our Cypress Roll features a shrimp tempura center and then slices of strawberries on top. There is no raw fish in it so it's safe for everyone! We love to accommodate everyone's tastebuds and we realize not everyone enjoys eating raw fish. So there's plenty on our menu for non-raw fish eaters. Come on in with a big group! We'll have something on the menu for everyone!
Pretty much everything on our menu can be made to go! We know this weekend is a busy one with family gatherings, holiday shopping, and football. Well, if you're a bit lacking on time and want to enjoy some of our awesome sushi wherever you happen to be, give us a call and order whatever you see on our website here.

You could say that our sashimi sampler is the ultimate sampler of any kind because you will get only the best cuts of fish! Tuna, Red Snapper, Yellowtail, Albacore, and Salmon. You just can't go wrong when you order this. It is a very shareable dish but you can also eat it on your own. And, there's no rice so it's definitely a no carb situation. The other nice thing about it is that our sashimi is cut to be a perfect bite every time. That's the way sashimi is meant to be enjoyed. Eat enough to please the senses.
Every 3rd Wednesday, Sushi World proudly supports Union Radio Station's live set by Ryan Live, DJ Ayebert, and DJ A1. From 6pm to 9pm, come on by and enjoy sushi, sake, and sounds! If you can't be there for the music, listen to it live at http://mixlr.com/theunion/. If you like what you hear, come on in for the next session next month!

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 partially a cooked sushi roll. It is a very filling roll so order wisely as many times, our customers will get pretty full from this roll as compared to our other sushi rolls. It's definitely a safe sushi roll to get as it does not have any raw fish in it. It's safe for all those who are still wary of eating raw fish.
One of the Happy Hour favorites for our regulars is our Spicy Tuna Rice Cakes. They are exactly how they sound. They're spicy because they come with a slice of serrano pepper on each one. It has a spicy tuna on top of a crispy rice cake. It's like a perfect little bite every time. Remember that Happy Hour is all day on Mondays & Tuesdays but they're also on all other days from 2pm till 5pm, even on the weekends! If you could just reset your internal clock to have lunch at 2pm instead of noon, you can enjoy Happy Hour for lunch everyday!
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!
