Food was not superb. But average like in many Japanese neighborhood sushi restaurants. But the servers were kind for America as they tend to apply American level of hospitality. Chawan mushinwas sub-standard. That’s the reason for 3 stars, not 4. Without drinking the price was...over $70 including tips for two special sushi plates, one salad and one chawan mushi. It might be reasonable for the US customers. But not for Japanese customers.More

This appears to be a family run business in a hole in the wall across the street from the Costa Mesa Hilton, so not only is it a good place for sushi, it's convenient for a quick dinner as well. While we had some simple...items like a churashi bowl, while we were dining, we could glance at other menu items to see the diversity offered. The people next to us order black cod: the chef took out four filets and cooked them with a blowtorch, wrapped them up in something, served them and our neighbors yummed with delight. This is not a bargain sushi place; expect to pay OC prices for the food at this unique restaurant.More

I am close to here at the Hilton for a business trip. I decided to use the lottery system of “restaurants near me” and man did I hit a winner!! This place is very small so you have to enjoy being close to people. I...sat at the sushi bar and I’m pretty sure the sushi chef was some deity of sushi. I had a couple different rolls and plan to go back and try more. If you’re in Costa Mesa do yourself a favor and check this place out.More

We accidentally walked into this small, cozy restaurant the day after new year. Great sushi/sashimi food, quick and friendly service. Best in Costa Mesa !

The freshest tasting sushi I’ve had in a looooooong time. Soy sauce and wasabi not needed. Very quaint place. Traditional nigiri and maki. Not super-“Americanized” futomaki. I definitely will eat here again when we return in May.

This area has a lot of Japanese restaurants and a Japanese market so I had to have Japanese food this evening as I assumed it had to be good. Decided to try this place as I wanted sushi and glad I did. The service is...every bit as good as had been stated. The food is excellent and very fresh tasting. I would argue a but with other reviews when they say the place isn't much to look at . It may be small with only about 4 tables and the sushi bar but it is a very nice place. You can't tell that from the exterior of course which is relatively plain but that is not important. I definitely recommend this place.More

Located in a strip mall, not at all fancy, but definitely authentic. It is a small restaurant with a sushi bar and a few tables. No reservations are accepted. They have been around for a long time, and the sushi chefs are Japanese and fantastic....The food is traditional, and it is consistently good. We also appreciate the servers for they are friendly and attentive. Thank you to everyone at Angotei :)More

Was a once a year regular five years ago. Don't know why we stopped going here during annual convention visit. Place is still really good. Small. Not pretty from the street, but it is certainly good. Service was superior. Taka at the sushi bar was...quick and he made some great food for me.More
