I've been going to Fuji for YEARS now! It's still THE best Japanese restaurant in Simi Valley. The staff is so helpful and nice and even get to know the 'regulars' over time. I've been brought my favorites without having to ask in the past! One way to judge a good 'ethnic' restaurant is by the number of people of that particular ethnicity eating there...Fuji is one of those restaurants. I have Japanese friends that live closer to the Valley and still come to Fuji! It's just that good!
Happy to find this 'hole in the wall' place in Simi. It's near Ross and See's Candie's in the Sycamore shopping center. Lunch specials are recommended - lots of delicious food at a great price. Service is always fast and friendly.
I have been coming to this fine cozy restaurant since they opened in the mid 80's. At first, my girlfriend, now wife, did not understand why I would ever eat raw fish. She is now a convert, and will only order the mixed sashimi or seafood salad (fish is always super fresh). Fuji is now her favorite place. Chefs are great and the help is always attentive. For consistency, I would rate it 97%, as sometimes they get overwhelmed, and that is good, no?
