Wafu of Japan – A Local Favorite Sushi Spot In The OC

Tucked away in Costa Mesa on Bristol Street, close to South Coast Plaza and John Wayne Airport, is a restaurant that serves up some of the best sushi and hot dishes in Orange County. Welcome to Wafu of Japan.

Authentic & Creative, Delicious & Fresh

Founded in 1999 by sushi chef Hideto “Harry” Arimizu, we continue to attract both OC locals and sushi lovers everywhere with unique offerings and unwavering high standards. We offer not only the freshest fish, but the freshest ingredients in all our dishes.

Cozy & Casual, Great Appetizers

Noteworthy to Wafu of Japan is our amazing number of appetizers, over two dozen in all, not including an additional dozen available off the sushi bar. This allows customers to discover new tastes, including both sushi, teriyaki and tempura items. Our restaurant is just the right size for a casual lunch or important business gathering.

Crispy Tempura/Tasty Teriyaki

Like our sushi, Wafu’s teriyaki and tempura entrees are specially prepared to order, featuring beef, salmon, chicken and vegetable versions.

Premium Sake & Craft Japanese Beers

We serve the well-known Asahi, Sapporo, and Kirin brands. Guests should also ask our server about our specialty sakes, sake tasting, and Japanese craft beers.
