A Venice staple I greatly
A Venice staple I greatly miss the days of working out of Amplify.la and having this place across the street for after work snacks.

Hama has become our go-to
Hama has become our go-to place for a casual, relaxed sushi and sake dinner. We travel a lot and live in Santa Monica so it's where we go on the way home from an LAX pick-up. Food is impeccable, service relaxed and efficient, and it lacks the usual sushi house cliches, feeling a little more like a neighborhood bar. The outside room is noisier and more bar-ish (which is fine by us). he inside room is quieter but still energetic. If you want an adventure, tell your server how much you want to spend and ask the kitchen to send out what's interesting that night!

great for a coworkers dinner out
Took a group of co-workers here while we were on a business trip from NY. Everyone had a great time. Food was great, service too. I have been coming here since 1999 and always enjoy myself.

Outdoor Sushi in the Heart of Venic
Great atmosphere and well-priced sushi make for a fun dinner spot in the heart of Venice. Don't expect world class sashimi, but try the rolls and special preparations. Great sake and wine list. Indoor sushi bar and tables create a very different ambiance from the fun and loud outdoor patio with huge projection screens showing surf films and a fun bar.

Good sushi, good saki...all set to great old school surf videos. Fun place, fun staff. But word of warning: when they say SPICY they mean SPICY. The Devil Roll curled some eye brows! And make sure you ask for the not-on-the-menu Live Prawms. As pure as you can get and the crispy heads are a great treat.

An old favorite!
Hama has been around for some time and they never disappoint. The quality of their sushi is always A1 and the service is great. I would definitely recommend Hama to anyone who is looking for a great place to gather with friends. The outside patio has a tv and I've never really paid much attention to what is playing but it's got a sports bar feel and the inside dining area has your typical sushi joint feel to it.
Overall - a great place - we visit quite often!
