Thanks to my friend who recommended this place. It is now one of my favorite spots in Glendale! The fish was fresh and the toppings were delicious. I ordered fish bowl with Salmon, Yellow Tail and Eel; spicy poke sauce; topped with seaweed, smelt eggs, and avocado. I love the tastes of my combination so much! All these goodness cost about $13, very good price! The reason why this place did not get 5 stars was the problem of the ordering website, which did not process my credit card payment under "Order for later" option. (I used Visa because the business only accepts Visa and Master cards) My friend tried to called the restaurant and intended to order by phone, but the manager did not understand the situation and had a rude attitude in responding. That was how we figured the business did not take orders by phone, which could be very inconvenient for customers; especially when there's a bug on the ordering website.
Good prices for sushi! I've been here a few times now with friends and coworkers. It's not the best sushi I've had, but it's really affordable. If you go during lunch and do the lunch specials, you get a 5-piece sushi and miso soup to accompany your dish. I'm a fan of the Ocean's Quatro roll.Service can be slow.It's not the freshest sushi, but really, we're in Glendale here so I'll take what I can get. Parking is easy in the structure (free 90 minutes) and it's part of the backside of the Glendale Marketplace, next to the big HomeGoods store.
Whenever I feel like eating good Sushi in Glendale area, I always eat at Sushi Kai. It's kind of hidden so the place never gets crowded but the place serves good quality sushi and rolls for the price. Lunch is definitely a better deal than dinner since all lunch combos come with extra five nigiri sushi. There are so many lunch choices and all of them are under $15. My favorite is Basked salmon roll lunch ($13). You can order lunch menu till 4 p.m.There is a parking structure in front of the restaurant and it's free for 90 minutes.
Honestly I stumbled into this place. I eat a lot of sushi. In my humble opinion, this place is the BEST sushi west of the 405 and a MUST for anyone (but especially yp employees) DO GO EAT HERE! also-you must must must try the uni. Now, I hate uni. It's the only sushi I can't stomache. This was my favorite thing that I had. THE Chef uses soshi (sp?) Leaves and shredded wasabi and lime on top to creat this unreasonably delicious morsel that I'm sure will be served in Gods waiting room.
My wife and I went here early on a Saturday evening. It was not busy yet, but was before we left. Service was excellent, with our drinks never getting low. Food was great, with lots of vegetarian options. Unlike most Chinese restaurants, they will do anything on the menu as vegetarian. They also offer items for vegans. The Egg-Rolls were fresh, crisp and well made, and the Kung-Pao Tofu was really good. Definitely a place we will return to!
Yes, it's always crowded but it's worth the wait. Some of the best dim sum and noodles I've ever had in my life. Stand outs include the mixed spicy wontons, chicken with flat noodles, shrimp and pork shumai and of course, the juicy pork dumplings. They also serve a few terrific sauteed veggie dishes such as the mustard greens and the kale. I like to wash it all down with iced cream green tea with sea salt.
Osaka offers a wide selection of seafood dishes including fresh oysters. The sushi bar (though not perfect) is acceptable - from their salmon sushi to their seaweed salads. They also have roasted meats and sausage, I like the crab legs dipped is butter lemon best. The dessert is mediocre, they do have ice cream (Thrifty). Not all the staff can communicate well in English.
Koreanized Chinese food or is it Chinese Korean food? More like the second one. The black bean noodles are excellent as well as the funky fried chicken. The kimchee there is very gingery. They have all the classic Chinese dishes made for Koreans. But you don't need to be Korean or even European to dig this place. With a name like House of Joy!
This place is good but doesn't live up to the hype. A few good-to-great dishes, but a sterile atmosphere and a few duds on the menu, including a tofu dish so overpowered by Szechuan peppercorns that everyone at our table was palate-wrecked. May go back after they have some time to get their act together but not in any hurry.
Convenient location for those who work on Brand. Food and pricing are average, and services decent. Definitely good option for a quick sushi fix during the lunch hour. Also good options for cooked, Japanese food, like the Yellowtail and Salmon collar dish that is great but not every Japanese restaurants offer.
