If you don't mind the drive, give the Arcadia one a try. It is better then Mall of Orange...

Thanks, this makes eatting at Todai even better.

AASN, I heard that if you show your diploma you get a free meal. Can anyone confirm this?

for those in socal, i've had better luck with food quality at onami's then todai's. the fish is usually fresher, more generous with the shrimp tempura, but their dessert selection isn't as good as todai's.

I second dc: I prefer Onami to Todai.
Only 6 locations in So. Cal.
Thanks for the coupons, OP: will keep in reserve.

i like Onami better too, but Todai is pretty good too.

Just to let you know the one in Hungtington Beach at Beach & Warner is not in their franchise, a guy told me that over the phone when I ask about it because it's close to my house.

When calling the HB, they won't honor the coupon but they have Birthday promotion: FREE meal for you at that day, not for next visit like the one in Mall of Orange, and a special cake for you. My birthday is coming this weekend: <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0>

But like an earlier poster said, the HB one has dramatically dropped in quality over the years. Living only 10 minutes from it, my family used to go there all the time. But when i took some friends there during college, they bagged on me on what a poor selection of places to eat. Heheh. Now I head to the one in Orange - pretty dang good. I hope the one opening up in Westminster Mall is as good... only 3 minutes away! Huzzah for convenient sushi! (Oh, BTW... i also highly recommend Onami)

Spidie99 said: [Q]Not all TODAIs' are the same. Some are Okay, some are not that good, while some are great. The best one I've been to was in San Diego, worst I think was either in Concord or Pleasanton.

I'm not really a big fan but my wife loves the Blue Crab and some of the other seafood. I couldn't agree with you more, Pleasanton is not the greatest and there is this aweful stench like cleaning solution mixed with cooked seafood. Sometimes makes me want to puke.

However... there are a few waitresses that are TODAI for.. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0> <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif" border=0> How about the H@@TERS that openned up in Dublin, CA. The line is freaking long as hell.. Talk about a nice suburbia!

Todai is owned by Japanese, Onami is owned by Korean.
They were partners before but got into the fight and sprit....

Are you sure about this? I thought Todai by Korean and Onami by Japanese?

The food quality is okay (more hit and miss), we go every now and then. The only things that make it worth it are their salads, raw oysters and lobster (or should I say butter cream sauce with lobster and imitation crab chunks). But overall I don't think it is a very good value. You can go to the local Asian market and get more sashimi or sushi than you can eat in one sitting for less than $25 and it is fresher and the quality is better. Actually now in San Diego there are a lot of good Thai and Chinese all you can eat buffets for under $10.

when downloading the coupons windows asked to download korean language pack. so i think it's pretty safe to say that todai is at the very least affiliated, if not owned, by koreans. i know the one here in cerritos is def. managed by korean folks. cerritos todai is only ok i think.

Todai is def. owned by Koreans. I know the family.

todai is sooo good~~ although i would say onami is abit better =ox

i went to todai in san diego one today with my bf although we forgot to bring the $5 off coupon (for lunch)...ohwell~~ =(

that one sukiyama or something is sooo good.. its like a beef soup (it taste like the yoshinoya beef bowl)..has noodles and tofu as well... yuuum.. i sure ate a lot of that =ox has anyone try that before? hehe

Yeah, I thought they were a Korean owned company too... So, you know "the family" 'eh? That's cool - do they hook you up?

vlmyfox said: [Q]from previous post, seems like concord, Daly City, Pleasanton, San Jose already pretty bad, so is it means only Cupertino one is still ok?



I tried the cupertino one in valco, but I thought it was really horrible. This was probably a year ago. My sister tried the one in eastridge mall in san jose, and she said that one didn't taste good either. However, we both thought the daly city one wasn't too bad. We went there twice; once on a weekend night, and once on a tuesday night. The weekend dinner tasted a lot better, but it also costs a little more.

Can someone tell me what is the price for lunch on weekdays? Thanks.

To make it very clear, Onami just filed for a bankruptcy and some of the location was sold to Todai. It is likely that it would be taken over by Todai. Therefore, if you like the Onami's food...then go there before it becomes a part of Todai. I personally don't think it makes any difference because each one is owned by different owner. It's a franchise, but the quality of the food is up to the owner.

DOH. guess i'll try to go to onami's sometime soon.

Great deal. Finally, one in NY

does this coupon work? anyone use it yet?

Is the one in New York good. How does it compare to East Buffet?
