Time to Get to Know This Geisha!
The Geisha House at Santa Ana’s stylish City Place development is one of our favorite Japanese dining choices in OC. And even more reason to go to this modern and eclectic hot spot are its new promotions: Monday nights 50% off all food; Tuesdays, a high energy rock and roll night with great music and $7 sushi rolls; Wednesdays, Lipstick + Liquor night where anyone wearing lipstick gets 50% off their liquor; and Saturdays, buy one bottle or carafe of sake, get the second one free!
And there’s more: every Tuesday through Thursday, Geisha House offers no corkage fee, and the sake special that runs all week long if you buy one flight of sake, you get the second for just $5. Menu highlights at Geisha House include the tuna tataki sashimi with ponzu; Pacific tuna with crispy white onions; and the maguro spicy taru-taru crispy rice, a select grade of tuna served on a bed of crispy, toasted rice. Happy hour is offered Monday-Friday in the lounge which features plush, woven leather banquettes for comfortable seating and a wall of plasma televisions.
Open for lunch 11:30 a.m. to 1:30p.m. Monday through Friday; open for dinner from 5 p.m. Open for dinner from 6 p.m. Saturday. 2773 North Main Street, Santa Ana. 714.564.0350.
