Reviews for Amachi Restaurant

Citysearch Editorial Review – A thrifty alternative to pricey Japanese restaurants, Amachi offers traditional Japanese fare (minus sushi)at a price budget-minded diners can afford. Hidden in uptown Whittier, the small family-oriented establishment is never empty. Meals are served in large portions and are always big enough to share. The menu is well-known for their popular teriyaki items and bento boxes that are well under $15.

Best Teriyaki in Uptown Whittier!! – The food is always good, very good prices, and a very laidback atmosphere. The service is great, very friendly, and personally I find it very refreshing that this is a Japanese restaurant that doesn't have its head up its @ss - they're not trying to be hip and trendy, and they're not making a fashion statement or trying to be chic with the decor or atmosphere. They make the best teriyaki and tempura, and thats all that matters here.

The complaint I always get whenever I bring friends is that there's no sushi - This is NOT A SUSHI BAR. I always get some sashimi (usually they bring out tuna and/or yellowtail) and its always fresh and tasty, though I admit its not as good as other places that actually specialize in raw fish.

But the point of going to Amachi is teriyaki and tempura. Their teriyaki sauce is just the way I like it - its not a thick syrupy consistency and its not too sweet, so it doesn't feel like you're eating pancakes and you actually get to taste your meat. I also recommend trying their shumai pork dumplings.
