Thank you City Search for pointing me to TunaTown! You cant go wrong with their Sushi. The Young Blood, Crouching Tiger and the Salmon Amazing... My Girl Friend had the Kobe Burger and WOW, this place has an amazing burger too. We had just missed happy hour but we will be back for that. 35% off sushi and apps 4-7. How can you go wrong! They have Teppan Tables and it looked like the people were having a great time. This place has it all. I love my new City Search application for finding me a great new place to have sushi when I'm in HB.

Tuna Town is our FAVORITE place to go any night of the week on Main Street in HB! Excellent happy hour, even better sushi! Try the Youngblood....it's the BEST! And for non-sushi lovers...the teriyaki steak or chicken kabobs are soooo good! Carlos the bartender is also one of our favorite reasons to head out to Tuna Town! :) Even our kids love going when we sit at the Tepan table. Enjoy!!

A group of us dined here on Wednesday night. Lets just say AMAZING! Sushi was DELICIOUS. We had their signature roll the Crouching Tiger and the waitress suggested we try the bad hair day roll. WOW, it was good. She said its not on the menu. So make sure you ask for it. This place is big, great for large parties. They also have Teppan Tables. We are reserving one those for next time we come and hopefully it will be soon because I need another Crouching Tiger. Oh, before I forget. their Happy Hour 35% off Sushi and Appetizers, $1 Sake is a great Deal too.

I love sushi and the sushi at Tuna Town was terrible!!! The yellowtail was stringy and you couldn't even bite into it with out almost choking on it! Bad quality! The service is terrible too. Many items never get to you, and then the miso soup comes at the end??? Also, check your bill, because you may have stuff you didn't order on it! Go to Sushi on Fire down the street! Way better!!!!

Pros: Jellyfish tank

Cons: Food, staff, managers, wait time

.

I've been here a few times while in town and wow. Great everything! Every roll I have ever tried there has never let me down, and pair it with a nice chilled glass of TY KU sake and your set. Once I was there and it was pretty packed but there are so many shops and you can even walk on the beach while you wait. Give it a try

Pros: Amazing Location, Service and Food

Cons: Sometimes a wait

The food here is amazing. The decor and service is out of this world. Some people say that Sushi on Fire down the street is better, but I would have to disagree. Their Happy Hour prices are what my wife and I go there for. From 5-7pm, all of their food items are 35% off! Itis definately the best deal around...especially for sushi!

I've eaten at this place twice. The first time was at the sushi bar. The service was good, but it wasn't busy at the time. The sushi was just ok, and its overpriced for what you get.

The second time I was at a table. The service was the slowest I've ever had. We waited 15 to 20 minutes to be greated at the table, and it wasn't even busy. Never saw the server after she took our order.

I love sushi and I will not be going back to this place. The price is just too much for what you get.

Do NOT miss this place next time you're in Huntington Beach. If you know what I mean when I say ADIDAS, Evolution, and/or Korn, you need to check out Tuna Town on Main. If not, try it anyway because it's my new hangout and i'll be coming here often.

I love the small, non-chain sushi joints that have Teppan Tables!! Super dark, great sushi and presentation, and the sushi chefs had a great personality. The service was so good that I don't even remember what our server looked like! My food & drinks just appeared and the server would scoot away and left us to socialize!

We sat at a table but next time, i'm going to sit in one of their dark loungy circular booths for more privacy! I will have to update my review once i try more of their food, but my friends said it was delish.

Practically 10 steps from the beach...gotta love it!

I read the reviews on here before I went and expected a nightmare. Went on a Sunday right after Tuna Town opened at 5:00pm. The place was pretty much empty. Sure the music was loud but I could still talk and hear from my companion. The food was okay and it didn't take forever for beer and food to come. But it wasn't packed either. I asked if the owner David ever comes in and it seems he does but its rare.

I wanted to eat at his other place Silvera Steakhouse because sushi isn't really my thing, to my surprise the steak house wasn't open for business when it was supposed to.

So Tuna town does have a great atmosphere and vibe, food is expensive its in a trendy area.

David get your behind back in Korn you quit to run these 2 places and from the looks of it, the steak house out of business and these reviews(besides the obvious planeted stories you wrote yourself with glowing reviews) since you quit Korn show on average Tuna Town is run like krap on a busy night, so just let it continue to be run like terribly and get back to drumming Here To Stay.

We love Tuna Town! The sushi is good, the bar is crazy and the servers are very friendly. The drinks are delicious but they can add up quickly. Fun place!

We have eaten in most of the restaurants in Huntington Beach. Tuna Town is by far and away the best restaurant in Huntington. I will go as far as to say probably the best Sushi I have eaten in OC. Love the servers, the bartenders and the cooks. Always consistent, clean and fun. Yes, it is loud but that is because it is filled with such a fun crowd. If you want excellant food and love to people watch this is your place. Also something amazing, the kids steak dinner is as good as it gets. I love the fact that they put as much emphasis on the kids meal as they do the grown-ups. The short ribs melt in your mouth, the steak is so tender you do not need a knife and the rolls are perfect.
Another plus is the restaurant is clean, clean. The owner takes pride in her restaurant and it shows.
Thanks for a great spot so close to home!!!!!! I'd even make the drive if I lived a distance away.
If it was not Monday I would be there tonight.

It's kind of like the Hard Rock Cafe but for the band Korn and with sushi. The sushi is delicious. The drinks are a little pricey but the atmosphere is pretty cool.

I GO INTO TUNA TOWN ALL THE TIME AND HAVE NEVER HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE. IN FACT THE SERVICE IS GREAT, ALL THE WAITRESSES ARE SUPER FRIENDLY AND REALLY TAKE THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW ME AND MY FAMILY WHEN WE COME IN. THE FOOD IS GREAT BUT SOMETIMES WILL TAKE A LITTLE LONGER THAN OTHERS. BUT ANY ONE THAT KNOWS GOOD SUSHI SHOULD KNOW THAT IT IS NEVER GOOD WHEN RUSHED, UNLESS YOUR THE TYPE OF PERSON USED TO SUSHI TAKE OUT. OVERALL GREAT PLACE, FOOD, ATMOSPHERE, AND SERVICE. RECOMMEND IT TO ALL!!!

Tuna Town is one of my absolute favorite places for sushi and drinks. Their fish is great quality and and the atmosphere is awesome. It is a little pricey though- I definitely suggest getting their devil roll, it is amazing. If you are looking for something a little less expensive Full Moon in Fountain Valley is also wonderful.

In spite of the psychotic servers, all the food here is amazing. Michael the sushi chef is superb. I have returned time and again for the delicious food and the comedy provided by servers who obviously imagine themselves above the work for which they expect to be tipped. It is best to order everything that you might desire immediately, because you will become invisible to your server throughout most of your visit there. I would suggest that they seek medication, except that I suspect they are self-medicated already. They cannot be completely benighted ,however, as evidenced by the fact that they slip a 20% tip into the bill, without allowing the decision to tip or the amount of the tip depend upon the obviously disregarded feelings of those they serve.

This place is ok, nothing special. I recommend going on a slow night unless you enjoy waiting forever for the food to arrive. The food is good, it just takes way too long usually, and the service is somewhat lacking. Worth checking out though. One thing i do find interesting- all the positive reviews of Tuna Town say the exact same thing, w/ the same word phrasing. Cmon its pretty obvious whats going on, and I for one am not buying into these fake reviews.

I love Tuna Town and have since it opened! The sushi is awesome and I love the creations that they chefs come up with. It is such a GREAT atmosphere and an overall fun place to hang out, which we do at least once a week. I just had my birthday party there and I must say that even though it was a busy night, the service was FANTASTIC (Thanks John). I definitely recommend Tuna Town as the best sushi in HB :)

Our party of 5 sat down and waited 10 min to place our drink orders. It took 2hrs for all of our food to be served! I had to request my water be refilled 3 separate x. We flagged a bus boy to request a beer, as our waitress was sitting at the table behind us flirting with 3 men for 15 min (we timed her). The bus boy had to tap her on the shoulder to order another round of drinks for us. Our food slowly came out over the course of 2 hrs. Not one person at our table received their food at the same time; we had to eat separately as the evening progressed. After an hour and a half we stopped the waitress who was now conversing with bar guests and informed her that we had not received our salmon sushi or crunchy roll and she said she would check on our food however she thought they were out of the salmon requested. It would have been nice if she had told us! 15 min later the missing food items were served. We spoke to the manger who is a previous food server at the restaurant to complain and he said that he highly doubted that we had been seated for 2 hs and laughed at us! He then went on to excuse the waitress?s actions by saying that she had been visiting with friends she had not seen in a long time? as if we cared or that as guests we should be expected to wait for her to decide to help us! To top everything off the waitress tried to add a 20% tip to our bill. 3 members of my party waited tables for 8 yrs we could not imagine ever providing such horrible service and still expecting any tip at all much less adding 20% to the bill. Needless to say we did not leave any gratuity and the manager had the nerve to chase us outside and ask us if we felt bad stiffing our waitress on a $200 plus bill. We had to point out that tip means to insure prompt service and we received no service. Over the last 3 years the service at Tuna Town has been going down hill and the owner and management either do not care or have not noticed that there customers are disappointed.

Pros: Good Music

I haven't been to Tuna Town for over 2 years as I was deployed to Iraq, I come home for some good sushi and I waited 45 MINUTES longer than my quoted time which was 20 minutes just to sit down. That right there is poor management. You have to understand the flow of your operation. Imagine if I was told I would be only be deployed for 18 months and I end up staying there 2.5 years, oh wait that did happen to me.
Ok Ok so now I am at the table. There are 4 of us, greeted swiftly, the waitress said she'd be right back. UM like 10 minutes later as she shielded her face numerous times as she walked by us so we couldn't grab he attention she arrived with 2 waters, and told us our food would be here soon. I almost Laughed out loud as I told her we haven't even ordered our drinks yet. It was easy 4 tall Asahi's. She came back with 4 tall Sapporo's.At that point, I knew we needed all our food ready to be ordered by the time she got back, we have all been there and knew we needed it to be done. So we ordered, and asked if she could wait on the entree's until all sushi has been taken out to our table. Of course if a simple 4 tall Asahi's can turn into 4 tall Sapporro's I can only imagine what could come next. I am not joking, but our entree's came out first, BEFORE THE SUSHI!!!!!! I asked the pretty lil thing, "Sweetheart, didn't I specifically ask you to deliver the entree's after all sushi was brought to the table. All she could say was, "well I told the expo not to bring out the entree's out till the sushi was brought out, so its not my fault" I was Jaw dropping flabbergasted. That right there is poor management. So now the Manager comes to the table, some 40 year old chick with the darkest circles under her eyes and matching crows feet, comes over and explains to me that I am to impatient and to relax, "your food will come" and she gave us a free Ju Ju yaki Yea that helps give me a sushi roll covered in mayonnaise to cheer me up from dropping $300 I will never go again

Pros: Trendy Spot, owned by Korn's Drugger Dave Silveria

Cons: Poor Management, Horrible wait time on food, and I saw a rattrap

We have done the tepenyaki twice. The cook was great and personable but that was where the service began and ended. Both times we were set and reserved for a seeting, the first time they sat us an hour late and provided horrible service. Stupid us decided to give them a second shot, this time only a half hour late and service was twice as bad. Rarely saw out waitress, the non grill food was not delivered until the dinner and show was over. We called over the General manager to complain, but she just does not get it. She is clearly not capable of handeling a restaurant like this, instead of hiring friends a restaurant manager is probably the way to go. Wont do dinner again, at least while she is managing, which is sad because I love Tepenyaki and the place is walking distance to my house.

I love this place! They have some of the most interesting and unusual sushi combinations I've ever had. I feel that it is much more creative than traditional sushi. I also had a really amazing glass of red wine. The music is too loud, but the food is such a sensual experience that I can overlook it. The jellyfish tank is trippy. It is like a live lava lamp or something.

I'll get right down to it. Look for a sushi chef's diploma anywhere...nope, you wont find one. The sushi is edible, at best. Who the heck is this guy preparing raw fish for me? How many years did he apprentice? At least cooking school for 2 years? Nope...it's a dude who is a friend of someone. I don't trust him to closely inspect raw flesh for tiny living creatures...and you shouldn't either.
Great place for being rowdy and a bit tipsy....fun place. Stick to the cooked food. I mean it.

The woman below me was completely rude to the managers of the restaurant. She even went as far as calling one of them a b**** to her face when the manager had walked over and had been completely sweet to them. She and her boyfriend were rude to the hostess who has only worked at the restaurant for a few weeks and had no way of resolving the woman's problem. They stood at the front yelling at the young girl. EVERY PLACE MAKES A MISTAKE ONCE IN AWHILE!

TUNA TOWN IS AN AWESOME PLACE TO GO. Its good for dates and parties and kids...until a certain time. A few weekends ago Marc McGrath from sugar ray even came in. David Silveria, the owner and drummer of korn, is there almost every night as well.

We went to Tuna Town last Friday night. We were seated quickly and ordered shorly after that. Our food came in spurts thur the evening and in random order main courses were coming out before appitizers. It took for ever to get our drinks and only 1 water came for a table of 4. The table was not cleared until the end of the night despite our efforts to keep stacking the empty dishes on top of each other. When the bill came we decided to split the bill between 2 of us. Thats when the night mare started. My bill total was 109.55 with tip and they charged my account 114.66. They also added an authoraztion for 114.55 that sat on my account for 3 day bouncing my checks and addind NSF fees to my account When I returned to speak to the bar manager she was RUDE and more concerend with flirting than helping me clear up my billing issue I returned the following day still rude the owner had to get involved and she was unhelpful and a little rude It was finally resolved when they called in the general manager on his day off He quickly resolved my issue and was the only one to appologize He was great! Service avarage Manager HORRIBLE Food great but not worth being treated bad VERY DISAPOINTED WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO MAKING IT OUR NEW LOCAL HANG OUT NOW WE WILL NEVER GO BACK AND WILL TELL EVERONE OUR NIGHTMARE EXPERIENCE!!!! To bad its a cool place with horrible service Pay cash stay clear of the BAR MANAGER

Cons: HORRIBLE SERVICE RUDE BAR MANAGER

After reading everyone else's review, I was shocked. I had a completely different experience. Although we sat waiting for a table (which was taken care of when we asked how much longer we'd have to wait) it was such a fun place to hang out. The California Roll was the freshest I have ever tasted and I had an A.M.F. Let me say that they are VERY GENEROUS with the amount of alcohol that they put in their drinks! I'm not sure if I caught everyone on a good night, but I had such a good time. The food was great, the atmosphere was fun and lively and the drinks were........FANTASTIC!!! I would DEFINITELY go back!!! NO QUESTIONS ASKED!

Pros: GREAT SUSHI, GREAT DRINKS, GREAT WAITSTAFF!!!

Cons: A slight wait for a table when it didnt look busy.

.

The food is a little pricy, but this is defiantly a fun place to go out with friends. The bar is always busy on the weekends, but then again so are all the bars on Main Street. It?s atmosphere is also perfect for a romantic date so save up and give it a try!

Cons: The meters in Hunington run till midnight so look for parking on a residential street

.

Hip atmosphere, good drinks. Hard to get a seat if Weekend in Summer. Sushi is not very good, and certainly not worth the price. If you want a place to get noticed, or people watch, this is the place in Huntington Beach - If you want good Sushi, go elsewhere.

Tuna town is all about the atmosphere. It's owned by the drummer of Korn, who dines there occasionaly...so does Tito Ortiz. If you want to occasionally see celebs then you have a better chance at tuna town then many other sushi bars, but Its always full of drunk trendy downtown scene-sters that stop to eat/drink there while bar hopping downtown HB. If your looking for great sushi this isnt the place for you. Everytime I order sushi rolls there they fall apart, like they were made by amatures. The quality of the fish isnt bad, but it isnt good either...this is not a romantic place to take a date, this is the kinda place you go eat at before you drive to Ozzfest. Mostly young people eat here, some of their signature drinks include the "blue b*lls martini" etc. . The platinum records and posters of different bands on the wall remind you of the inside of a recording studio rather than a restaurant. I myself like the LOUD rock/hiphop music they blast, the decor, the attractive young crowd etc. I have yet to try their tepan yaki (sp?) Ive heard from several of my friends that the service is bad, but there are a few waiters that have been working there for several years that are pretty good. This isnt a place Id take my parents to.

Pros: fun and trendy atmosphere for a sushi restaurant

Cons: service and food are below average

.

This place has a trendy atmosphere filled with young, outgoing people. If you are simply a sushi enthusiast, just looking for good sushi eat, this isn't the place for you. The food is way overpriced and the service sucked.

My husband and I were very excited to try this trendy sushi restaurant. To our surprise, it was the worst service and value we've experienced. First, our $5 shrimp and calamari appetizer was literally only one piece of each inside a small plate. After this insult to our appetites, waiting a total of 45 minutes from being seated to get our sushi wasn't pleasing. A kind word to the manager only resulted in a response that this was a "normal" wait for a weekend crowd. We find this disappointing, being that the place was only at 1/4 capacity when we were seated. Needless to say, we won't return.

The food was really great, I ordered the halibut and it was fabulous. I also ordered some sushi sashimi and that was also fabulous! The cook at our grill was really cool and funny and wanted to make sure we had a great time!
Unfortunately, the wait stuff wasn't very great...we received food that wasn't ours, we ordered an appetizer and actually didn't receive it until we were done with dinner...sad, then we didn't eat it cuz we were full. And it took forever to order a drink. I think it's time for the management to hire a new wait staff...
Other than that, I thought it was a great, trendy place.
Oh, if you like it quiet while you dine, do not go here, it's loud! I love it.

Pros: sushi, wine, Teppan Yaki Grill

Cons: wait staff

We ordered two appetizers and two entrees, none of them sushi. Of those four dishes, three arrived (late and simultaneously!) and they were yummy. I'd recommend the stuffed mushrooms to anyone. The cocktails were on the wimpy side, unfortunately we never had an opportunity to order more beverages and our water was never refilled. The waitress in general had no clue what she was doing. Food all arrived at the same time, plates were clumsily offloaded on the corner of the table, and despite asking 3 times what we ordered she forgot one dish. Throw in the lack of beverage service and you have a ruined meal.

This is a cool place on Main Street to go for a drink and some sushi. The place is pretty small but it's really good! I like to start my night out here with a Mojito and than head out to Hurricane's or Fred's for some more drinking and fun with friends!

Though the restaurant has a definite nightclub vibe, complete with rock memorabilia on the walls and the occasional celebrity guest as your neighbor, the menu includes such starters as rock shrimp guacamole with won ton chips and Cajun…
