MAKINO AYCE SUSHI/SEAFOOD-IRVINE
I went to Makino's with a friend recently. Good, decent AYCE compared to the lousy Chinese pseudo Japanese AYCE that are prevalent just about everywhere. Variety of sushi, hot foods and ramen bar. They have cute Japanese pastries that are not too sweet with a chocolate fountain you dip fruit in. Cheaper M-Thurs for lunch, I think it's around $16.95.
