Description

OC Weekly's Description

Full Moon Sushi is a trio of places in Fountain Valley, Tustin and Costa Mesa that falls at the sushi crossroads between the intimacy of a family-owned joint like Wafu of Japan and the club-like atmosphere of an RA or the thankfully gone Geisha House. So you’re going to have a mostly young work force and clientele chowing down rolls above the din of club music or televisions, everyone grubbing and checking their iPads during a lunch break—but the men behind the bar can omakase with the best of them, while the house rolls are legitimate constructions. Their namesake roll—salmon, tuna, whitefish, shrimp and crabmeat stuffed with avocado, deep-fried, then slathered in ponzu sauce and topped with smelt—reads like a deep-trawling documentary but ties together beautifully, each jewel of the sea perfect, the smelt adding a bold brininess.

    Try the healthy full-moon. Very worthwhile.

  • Jacky G. on 12/21/11

    Crunchy roll full moon special is THE BEST!

  • Nikki M. on 10/22/10

    Great service! Recommend lobster hand roll, soft shell crab handroll, and baked scallops.

  • Robert A. on 08/08/10

    El Jalapeno is interesting. Tempura fried jalapeno diced into 8 pieces each stuffed with cream cheese and crab.

  • Daniel p. on 08/03/11
