Aliso Viejo, CA 92656
OC Weekly's Description
Though the sign outside simply says "Sushi," Bistro Anju
should not be counted among the sushi slapdash that dots our suburban
mini-malls and shopping complexes with increasing frequency, even if its
sparse dining looks like it belongs. It should be compared to its rightful peers:
South Coast Plaza's Hamamori and Newport Coast's Bluefin By Abe. Owner/chef
Hideki Saito produces California rolls along with decent nigiri with rice
that's a touch too sweet, but he'd rather dazzle you with foie gras and
gazpacho, things cooked on a blazing stove top and employing more than just
wasabi as ingredient.
Tips from foursquare
Ask for the pro surfer waitress ....
The spicy salmon don is so fresh! Try the dungeoness. crab nigiri, piled high with meat!
Order the tuna carpaccio and the albacore in garlic ponzu.
The Chilean Sea Bass is a burst of flavor. Small, but tasty.
Their lunch menu is awesome. Sashimi salad and a spicy tuna roll for $9.50!!
