Travelling south on I-405, we stopped for fuel off the Brookhurst exit. Feeling hungry, we decided to go south a bit more on Brookhurst to see what was available. About 3 blocks south of the offramp on the right, we found Full Moon Sushi. It had a fair amount of patrons there, but the hostess got us a seat at... More

Decorations and atmosphere are average, 3 stars. The popularity of this restaurant means that service could be improved with more servers, 3 stars. Lots of takeout orders were out the door. The poke bowl was one dimensional, with tuna as the only fish, but well seasoned. The sushi rice here was to our liking, and everything we ordered on two... More

They make the freshest and best lambijuns in Orange County. I think even better than Jacks Bakery and that's saying something.

I really enjoyed my dinner. Every thing was so fresh I loved the tempura so tasty the Chiken rice salad and soup perfect. They serve wine and have a dessert selection. I would definitely go back they were very busy but the server was great and sr ice was fast.

sushi and sashimi is reported by my sons to be very good. The combo plates like salmon and tempura are merely ok but then the price is quite reasonable so the value is attractive.

Where should I start oh by walking in to the the place you can't help but feel how unfriendly this joint is. The food nothing to write home about but the service oh you can it is without a doubt the most horrifying experience you could ever have I don't know what else to say eat at your own risk!

Full moon sushi is tucked away in a shopping center complex. You need to drive right up to the storefront to see it. 9 out of 10 times, it's been packed with happy patrons. We usually sit at the bar. We have watched the place grow; now having 4 people preparing the rolls. 4 rolls and drinks was just under... More

We have eaten here for years, and the food is good, not great, but good. The service is good, and the atmosphere is a typical small sushi restaurant in a strip mall in Orange County, nothing special. The menu is also just basic, nothing inventive, but you know what you are getting.
