Our server Hiroko was very attentive as well as all the staff. Always made sure our water/ tea was full. The sushi/ sashimi was top quality. Our appetizers were delicious especially the ishiyaki (wagyu beef) where we cooked on a hot lava stone. The beef melted in your mouth. Definitely recommend if you want top quality food. Can't wait to come back.

Celebrated a birthday this past weekend and we were really impressed with the entire meal. Although a bit on the pricey side once you add sake and mixed drinks, the quality of the food was incredible. Unique dishes, melt in your mouth sashimi, delicious rolls, and great appetizers. The birthday cheesecake dessert was light and airy and just the right touch of sweet. Will definitely return!!!!

Hammamori is the best sushi spot in Socal, conveniently located on the 3rd floor of the lower mall at SouthCoast plaza, all of our servers, Vincent, Christina, Jimmy are great and very attentive. I am new to sushi and not quite ready for Omagase but all of the staff have educated me on the best dishes along with recommendations of what I might like. I stayed away from sushi for many years mostly because it was new and I didn't understand the whole concept.
For a serious sushi lover or for a novice like me, James will make sure you have a great experience.
Kampai to all my friends at Hammamori!

Excellent food and stellar service. I went with my husband for his birthday and we ordered the omakase. If piece of sushi was perfectly prepared and seasoned. No added wasabi or soy sauce necessary. I also highly recommend the signature Japanese Mojito....sooo good! We will go again in the near future for sure!

Always sit at the sushi bar, and their recommendations and preparations are amazing!
If you're as consistently pleased here as we are, try buying the chef his favorite beverage..

Great menu and very good quality. Definitely upper echelon for OC. Solid omakase and hot stone plate Kobe. The restaurant suffers from a poor location tucked away on the 3rd floor of south coast crystal court so the ambience was a bit off. Still one of the top 5 or so spots for sushi in all of OC food wise. Location takes away from the food experience unfortunately.

Outstanding service and quality. James the head chef/owner is very creative. I mostly order Omakase when I’m there and he always have new sushi dishes , never the same. Good value for the high quality sushi.

I have been meaning to try this place for quite some time, but didn't get the chance until recently. I am very sad I waited so long to go! It was absolutely amazing!! Sushi quality was awesome and the appetizers were great too. I wish I went with more people, so I could have tried more things on the menu. I am a bit of a sushi snob, so this is a highly recommend. The crispy pork belly app was yum, and I don't think there is any sushi that you wouldn't like. I can't wait to go back.

Upscale place. Not for the casual sushi meal. Ironic that its in a mall but it is South coast plaza. If youre on a budget get in and out by 630 or youll pay 2x the cost.

When you can’t be in Japan eating Sushi, Hammamori delivers the Goods.

It’s always a great time especially if you sit at the bar. Taiki, & James are the best. Prices are reasonable and the fish is fresh.

Hamamori is bright and light as well as elegant, not your normal Sushi environment. Perfect place before an evening at Performing Arts. Our server was a pro. Some of the wine prices are a little crazy. Rose is one of the most popular wines today and they had only a split available for $80! I drink and collect wine, I haven't had a $160 or Rose lately, have you? There is not shortage of decent French dry Rose's. Softshell shrimp are amazing, the appetizer sampler had very little taste, (close your eyes,....good luck trying to discern if you are eating tofo or fish) Hamachi prep is outstanding. Octopus was decent. Here is my one huge question "how can a restaurant give you a $200 bill and use the absolute cheapest chop sticks made?" "would you like splinters with your $200.00 meal?" we will bring our own next trip.

Their food just okay. Nothing special.
Wouldn't recommend to get the courses menu, is not worth to pay so much money for little simple food.
Overall service was satisfied. They are friendly.

I was pleasantly surprised by Hamamori. Because it was in a mall I didn't have high expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised by the upscale decor, excellent service and delicious food. I had the salmon. It was cooked to perfection, with the slightest crispy outside and tender moist inside. It was accompanied by a good sized salad, rice and miso soup. The edamame had a tasty flavor as well. My friend had soba soup, which was accompanied by tempura vegetables and shrimp. She enjoyed it as well. A little noisy once it filled up but overall a very pleasant experience. I will definitely return.

Service was slow but courtesy. Food quality was excellent. They ran out of Alaskan Cod on Valentine's Day.....frustrating for me because I was looking for a cooked fish and that was the only one. Very pricey and portions are small. Also ambiance isn't that good when your sitting at the outside section which is within a mall.

Went here on Valentine’s Day. Had a 8pm reservation. 30-40 minutes later we got sat at a table (understand it’s a busy night but communication was poor). Once we got sat at the table we waited 15 minutes for drinks. Then ordered food and took at least 30 plus minutes to get our food. It came once we asked when the table next to us who sat 20 minutes after us got their food. She apologized and came back with our sushi a minute later so I assume it was just sitting up at the sushi bar. It was only part of our order and asked later where the rest of the order was and she seem confused.

The pork belly was by far the best dish. The salmon and yellow tail were really good. The yellow tail and amberjack were ok. The scallops were dry and over cooked.

For a higher end sushi place I was expecting a lot more with regards to service and food preparation.

Overall disappointing.

The food at Hamamori was decent (we enjoyed the pork belly, tuna, salmon, and yellowtail sushi). On the other hand the service was pretty poor. We had to wait almost 30 minutes past our reservation time to be seated, our server repeatedly forgot what we ordered and had to come back to ask. The service was also extremely slow. We waited almost 2 hours before cancelling the rest of our order (after verifying it hadn't been started yet).

The value is also poor in our opinion. Although we enjoyed the sushi everything on the menu was incredibly expensive for what you get. Small quantities of decent, but not great food. We likely won't be returning to Hamamori.
