Sushi factory

Where to start? Most of the sushi chefs don't speak japanese. I sat at the sushi bar and witness fish butchered like never. Not sure the fish was cut with the right side of the blade. The presentation is a disaster. The taste, barely a notch up from your local grocery store sushis.

Terrific Lunch

We loved the food, especially their rice and dressing. When we asked if we could buy their dressing (they do not sell, but), the waiter brought a container filled with the dressing for us to take it home. Very nice service. Dinner may be expensive, but lunch is reasonable.

Good but nothing spectacular

The sushi is good and the rice is definitely unique, in a good way. I ordered a combination, which was mediocre quality compared to the sushi off the menu. I highly recommend trying their rice. For alternatives, I like Yabu.

Terrific Food. Not your typical Japanese restaurant.

The food is very good. Pork toro was tasty. Lamb was tasty. Scallops were small, but good. The albacore sushi with fried onions was excellent. The other sushi was good, but there are better sushi restaurants if you just want sushi. Make sure you have some non sushi items. Even the home made custard for dessert was good. It is expensive. Two people, no alcohol, $170.

How Much Do You Love Rice?

Torafuku is most known for it's carefully prepared gohan which is cooked in heavy earthen pots, akin to how it was made in early Japan. The rice itself is different than the typical rice served in most Japanese restaurants today. Torafuku's rice is more round or pearl shaped. There is no denying they serve good rice but most people probably will not be able to appreciate the difference to justify the noticeable pr... view more

Rice, nothing but rice, please!

You come to Torafuku for one thing only, the rice! If you don't like rice or couldn?t tell the subtle flavor among various rice, this is not a place for you, or you would find everything over-priced. Torafuku's rice is pearl like, slightly round in shape and translucent, moist but not sticky. The taste is subtle yet flavorful, with a touch of sweetness on every mouthful. Order the hot dish, especially the home ma... view more

Good food but a little pricy

This place is nicer inside than it appears on the outside. The food is presented nicely and is pretty good. I'm not sure if it's worth the price as I found it pricey. A la carte items are the most expensive. We had a gift card so we didn't care though. Mon-Thu from 6-7 they have a combo deal that gives you a little bit of everything, fish, sashimi, tonkastu, shrimp, miso, and other stuff. The service seemed a ... view more

Excellent food, a unique Japanese restaurant.

Though it's excellent, don't just order sushi here. Try the traditional rice dishes, and/or ask the waiter or waitress for some recommendations. All the food is excellent, and the presentation is exquisite. Prices can be a little steep by the time you're done if you order a la carte. Highly recommended.

Poor management.

My girlfriend ordered a dee-fried combination specifically for the oyster. Upon noticing the ommission of the oyster, we spoke to our server and he apologized for not mentioning that the oyster was out of season when we ordered. Furthermore, our appeal for an extra shrimp was turned down by the manager because the shrimp was more expensive than the oyster substitute, whitefish. Ten minutes later our server returned w... view more
