For all you Sushi lovers, this place has great service and great sushi! Loved the sushi rolls) the cucumber salad, the seaweed salad, udon soup, and their green tea. We've visited this restaurant a few times and it's one of those restaurants you can come back to, knowing that you'll be treated well and be satisfied with good food.

The sushi is very fresh and servings are not skimpy. The staff is very friendly and the service is very efficient. We go here most Friday nights. We have tried other places and they can't compare to the serving per value here also the taste. We enjoy the sushi plate and the teppen-yaki.

This sushi place has lots of options. I loved whatever I tried, I don't remeber the name but it had salmon and avocado. If I was around I will definately try this place again.

The food is delicious and the menu is diverse, but, I think they are a bit expensive compared to other local sushi spots.

The sushi is very good, and there is a variety of Japanese dishes. Service is very friendly. Nice place to relax, with friends or family. I really like the tuna sashimi salad.

I've been going to Maizuru sinced they opened several years ago. Consistently quality food along with good service. I'm a sushi guy and although it's not the best I've had, it's well above average. Guests I dine with frequetly order combinations and they are always satisfied with their meals.

Maizuru is tucked away in a food court in an Irvine shopping center. It's not a place you'd chose as a destination restaurant. But it's worth seeking out this hidden gem. I had lunch there recently with a friend. We each had a "roll" -- I had the spicy tuna with roasted garlic, my friend had the "volcano". Both were... More

new management, rule 1 restaurant = CUSTOMER SERVICE. Smiling staff would be good - no smiles. Friendly service - felt like I was intruding. CHEAP - leave the lights on in the other room even if you don't have guests, it kills whatever ambiance was left. Ambiance - or lack of, spend a few bucks and get the non Japanese... More

Overall, not a welcoming experience. Rude staff, false advertising, and average at best sushi! There was a lunch special advertisement outside the front door that indicated that both specials received Miso Soup. Mmmm, sounds good. Two "A" Specials as advertised (which advertises that it comes with Miso Soup) were paid for. There was not any mention from the hostest/waitress that... More
