Highly recommended for those who like real sushi and don't want to compromise for cheap or adulterated selections. After a late arrival from a long day at work, the wife's only wish was some sushi. Ikko was open. We called, knowing we would be there just before last call. I was extremely COMFORTED by the sign noting this place wants... More

Omakase menu is a must and the experience is worth every penny!! Loved every item the chef served. This restaurant is an updated version of the traditional sushi experience. Great ambiance.

We were seated quickly, and then no service for a while. This was around 8:00 pm on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was not busy. When the waiter finally came we ordered and the waited. After about 10 mins 2 pieces of sushi were brought out, no drinks. I asked for water. The waiter asked if we wanted soy... More

I really enjoyed the omakase as they serve you both cooked dishes and sushi. The entree dishes were very creative and flavorful. Since I love sushi, we ordered extra on the side so we can try some of the other fishes there. The fish is very fresh - you don't even want to dip your sushi in soy sauce. Although... More

Food served to you raw, you cook it over a BBQ in centre of table, make sure to order the marinated pieces, the taste is well worth the visit

During my two weeks stay here in Costa Mesa I have already visited this place three times and the Sushi is always perfect. You get a healthy portion of always very good fish and just the right amount of rice, which means not too much as in other places. The seasoning is perfect and therefore there is no need to... More

This was a truly amazing meal. If you want the real deal for authentic Japanese sushi this is it. But it will cost you.

I want to start off by saying, "make reservations", but if you don't, fear n the wait for the sushi bar is still worth it. The entire restaurant is tiny. However, their smallness really help project an intimate environment, while their chef to patron ratio made it feel like we had his undivided attention. Furthermore, one of the refreshing things...

Restaurant was small and cozy. Went here for an anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint. Had the omokase dinner and we got to watch the chef prepare all of our dishes.
