Editorial review from Citysearch 2/13/2014

Sushi! They have great sushi. The offer the traditional sushi rolls like the dragon roll. They also have some rolls that I have not seen at other sushi places. Parking is available for in the couple of parking lots around. more

Great Quality Food @ A Great Price 5/10/2010

Octopus has great food. I love their salads and happy hour menu. Their reverse happy hour (8:30pm to close - 7 days a week) makes late night dining deliously inexpensive!! The service is expectional. more

Warm atmosphere , Fast service 6/29/2009

AVOID AT ALL COST!!!! 10/31/2008

This place is horrible. The service can be good, but can be real crappy. They did not serve me what I ordered, but I told them to take it off of my check- they told me that they wont because they served it to me. They served me substandard fish that wasnt even what I ordered and pretended that it was just a ""different color fish."" Probably old fish they found in the trash of the real sushi restaurant down the street. Never going back there again. Kabuki is good though and it is close by. Pros: uhhhh not getting kicked in the nads Cons: Getting served old Sushi more

Best Suprise ever... 10/3/2008

Amazing restaurant, tucked away in the corner of the Town Center area... I passed by it probably a thousand times before i ever even was made aware of its existence. It is one of the best Japanese restaurants I have been to and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg to go to. If you are ever in the area I would highly recommend you stopping by this restaurant. Pros: fast, great food, excellent service, good location Cons: it is kind of small, but even when it is busy there doesnt usually seem to be a problem with getting a table more

Love this place! 8/29/2008

This place has great food for great prices! The sushi is always half-off and unlike most Japanese restaurants, you leave feeling full. Plus if you join their email club you get $10 off coupons every few weeks. And for us vegetarians out there, there are definitely a lot of options! (hint for veggies: if you want a roll in a combination, you can ask for the California roll without crab meat) Pros: Great food, great prices Cons: none! more

Octopus....Best price for the Best sushi in town! 10/27/2006

Octopus Japanese Restaurant....not only do they have the best sushi but their combo meals are great. My favorite are the raw oysters garnished with smelts eggs, since it is prepared upon order they may take a bit long but worth the wait. The combo meals are so big it can be shared by two people. We have tried three other Japanese restaurants near by but nothing compares to Octopus. more

Great Lunch Specials 10/12/2006

We went there with the buy one get one free card from entertainment book. The restaurant was nice, one of the staff members was extremely nice (she kept playing with my baby, even took him for a look around the restaurant), and the food was good. The portions were huge and when my daughter didn't like the green tea iced tea, she replaced it with another drink without charging for the tea. I liked the chicken teriyaki and the california rolls. The spicy tuna was pretty good, but I have a place that specializes in it, so no one can really beat them yet on that. more

Good value 6/25/2006

We showed up for dinner here after hearing some friends talk about how much they loved it. The sushi was fresh (not fishy tasting), and the portions were more than fair. It took a little while to place our order, and the staff seemed less than thrilled to be there, but overall, we had more food than we could finish for less money than we'd spend at most restaurants. Pros: Value Cons: Service more

not sushi 2/19/2006

The food that I was served here was not near par. I was pretty disappointed. It is similar to the sushi place Kabuki, which is a franchise sushi restaurant owned by non-Japanese, so if you want something that is casual, quick eat, and just bargain, come. Their lunch menu was acceptable, but the sushi was all based on california roll and I could not pick up the sushi without using a spoon...rice literally breaks in your hands. Pros: cheap, casual, americanized Cons: not tasteful, non-authentic, poor service more

Sushi is definitely an art here 10/31/2005

I had lunch today and had three different dishes -- totally filling and pretty tasty. Pricewise, I've seen better elsewhere, but nothing has quite looked so good and tasted just as good. I especially enjoyed the Snow Roll which has baked halibut and cream cheese. Also, I was greeted when I entered and bid a fond farewell when I left, which was definitely a nice touch. Pros: presentation, atmosphere Cons: pricey more

Outrageously EXCELLENT Sushi and service!!! 7/31/2005

My friend and I have made this our sushi place. We have never (in NYC, Chicago, or LA) been served such fresh and large cuts of fish for so unbelievable a price. Even if you should stray from the selection on their 50% off list, you will still find the Ichiban Roll (for example) to be a meal in and of itself. It is loaded with fresh asparaus, avacado, red red tuna, shrimp, spicy tuna inside ... it's unreal!! And the sushi chefs are super friendly - they will make anything, anyway you like it. If you are a die-hard sushi lover, this is the place to go. Above Sushi Dan even!! I even rate the quantity for the price and quality FAR above Yamashiro. I cannot recommend Octopus in Burbank highly enough. If you love GOOD, FRESH, sushi, you MUST try this place. It's a serious find. Pros: Fresh, Value, Portions Cons: NO CONS!! more

My place!!! 3/17/2005

This is my boyfriend and I's favorite place to eat!! It has wonderful food for affordable prices. The service is quick and polite! The only bad thing is parking... Pros: Great food, Affordable prices, Atmosphere Cons: Parking more

Mmmm mmmm goooood! 11/23/2004

Fast and friendly service. I've been there several times now and the food has always been excellent. You can tell that the chefs only prepare the sushi dishes with fresh fish. Price-wise, you can't beat the 1/2 off for lunch! Also, it's very close to the AMC 16 in Burbank so after a good meal, you can go catch a movie or take a stroll around the shops or the mall. Overall, I highly recommend this restaurant! (*You gotta try the Unagi rolls---delicious!) Pros: inexpensive, good location, friendly service more

Very Fresh Fish, Nice Place 9/13/2004

I was lured in last night by the 50% off sushi special they are running right now in honor of their 1st Anniversary. It was some of the best sushi I've ever had! I sat at the bar and the chef's cut it up right in front of me. Tender, flavorful, and didn't taste three days old like some places. Add in the 50% off and it was a great deal as well. Pros: fresh fish, easy parking, fun area more
