The restaurant offered great service and tasty food. It was only a small place but the staff was very accommodating.
Yummy Japanese Tapas – Except for their service that seems to be inconsistent, their food is delicious.
The aroma alone makes me want to sit there forever.
Our favorites: yaki soba, sashimi bowl, agedashi tofu, soft-shell crab appetizer, menmochi (if you like mochi & cheese, this is a must), chicken karage, takoyaki, Japanese beef with mushroom, beef tongue, meatball, spicy jumbo shrimp, scallop (though they overcook it sometimes) & bacon wrapped anything (yum!)
Their cream anmitsu for dessert is a must. It's makes a perfect ending. I particularly enjoy them with azuki (red-bean) ice-cream.
A Real Japanese experience – This is real Japanese food. There is a sushi bar and even a room to sit on the floor. Great Fun.
There is usually a wait so be prepared. Its worth it/ I love the skewers. Bacon wrapped Asparagus and the Large prawns are the family favorite. Try the ponsu beef. Its a real treat!
Great food, service, clean location located in old town Tustin. Just plan on taking a few extra minutes if you go durring prime hours, but the food is worth the wait..
Great Izakaya!! AUTHENTIC! – I have lived in Japan for 27 years and going to Hond Ya is like eating at a good izakaya in Tokyo except for the American beer.
They have a good variety of food and authentically prepared. Offers items not commonly found at other Japanese restaurants so it draws Japanese customers from far away.
Definitely worth trying!
Delicious! lots of small dishes to choose from and share!!! – This is one of my favorite restaurants in Orange County. I love Japanese and I love Tapas...so this place is kind of an Asian Tapas place with all it's small dishes to order and share. Try the miso eggpant and the butterfish....yum!!! The Cheese Age and also the bacon wrapped Okra A+++
Good Sushi For a Late Night – It's good to finally see a good sushi place open late around here. Sometimes you just get that craving after a night out and now I know where to go. It's pretty much always busy (the 2 times I've been) but the servers are really nice and try to take care of you as fast as possible. Their hot items are pretty standard, but still good, but their rolls are definitely choice. I'd recommend coming early to enjoy it more, but its great no matter what time you go.
amazing food quality is dropping but still better than most. – OK... so i have been going to Honda Ya for a few years now and have seen its growth for those of you who are dual yelp users this is an amazing restaurant the izakaya style is wonderful for the late night diner but remember the lines to eat are always growing and the food quality is going down with its growing popularity.
But trust me its worth trying. Wow ginger pork..
