Great little restaurant
Great cuisine. Lively service and a busy sense of being somewhere good. Great sushi and sashimi options. Wonderful range of sakis.

THis is one of my long time
THis is one of my long time sushi favorites but this night it seemed as everything was off. The service was very slow but then again my favorite girl Apple seemed the only one tending tables. The G 6 I requested extra spicy was mild and the black Cod was awful.

Nice variety to the menu,
Nice variety to the menu, and our server was particularly helpful when she figured out I was a vegetarian and pointed out that one of the dishes I ordered had bonito flakes that were not mentioned on the menu.

We had not dined in a while at Hamasaku; but again did not dissapoint. Beautiful,fresh, and creative sushi and sahimi. Had EA(spicy tuna), DJ Spider(lobster, crab), Charlize tACOS, Green Dragon. Cannot remember other sushi rolls but all excellent. Octopus Sahimi with a light sauce, mushrooms was probably best octopus we have had. Hamasaku has added small tapas plates. We enjoyed hanger steak, Black Cod, and Chicken thighs. Although very good; I would stick with their sushi and sashimi. Our waiter Matthew was excellent and recommended a excellent Saki. More like a nice white wine.

I've eaten here several times, but this time might have been the best yet. We were there for three and a half hours without being rushed or pestered. The food was (as always) creative and palate pleasing. Our server brought me a taster of sake to help me pick one and got it just right. It was my friend's first time dining here and he was blown away. Thank you Hamasaku!

A hidden Gem
Hidden in such a little plaza, so easy to miss it.
Japanese food infused with some contemporary elements. Everything is delicious!

Wonderful flavors. Did one dine LA menu plus one meal a la carte. Regular menu a bit pricey but the quality was worth it.

Fresh, tasty sushi. Great service!
Love this restaurant tucked in corner of mini-mall. Lovely quiet - such a change from noisy, hard edged restaurants. Attentive, soft-spoken service and such delicious sushi. I also recommend the Rick Castle roll. The difficult part is deciding which of the dishes to order. Highly recommend.

This was my first time after many, many years hearing of this place. The food was delicious and once the order was placed, was served timely. I would prefer to try again for dinner with a slower pace than the lunch rush hour, but it is still a very good for a nice lunch in the area.

Great Sushi and Amazing service. We will definitely return soon.

Excellent Food, Quick Service
One of our favorite local sushi restaurants, with attentive staff and excellent food. We were entertaining family recently, and despite being seated at the table just outside the kitchen, with us taking the seats looking into the kitchen, we enjoyed a lovely dinner of rolls, robata, and sushi. The service is quick and professional, without being intrusive. The noise level is moderate, unless there is a large group, which can sometimes get rowdy.

Better and Better
We have been going to this place since it's original opening. Fourteen years later, it just gets better and better! The creativity of the dishes, the freshness of the fish, the presentation, AMAZING! This place is a must for serious foodies and sushi aficionados.

I met a colleague here and thought it was ideal for a work related lunch. Good energy for lunch hour. Definitely want to go back again and really enjoy the sushi selection.

The Big 40
Came with my kids to celebrate my birthday. The food was as good as I remember it. Some of the best rolls I've ever had. Everyone was very nice but due to the crowded Friday night they were stretched thin and kept forgetting things like extra water for the kids. But overall it was a nice evening and it was a thrill to go.

We were 4 and ordered from all categories in the menu. Flawless execution of well designed items, a really wonderful experience.

Good to know
This restaurant has been open for a long time, but I have never been. I was very pleased with a quality and inventive menu. The fish is fresh and exquisite--such a pleasure. No concerns.

One of LA best sushi restaurant
We're 3 foodies that dine out 7-10 times a week on average.
Ordered 3 appetizers and 5 rolls and we all love every single one of it, which has never happened that we unanimously love every single thing we ordered at any restaurant.
Hands down one of the top 5 Japanese restaurant we've been in LA.

High quality sushi
The quality of the food at Hamasaku is outstanding. The portions are a bit small for the price, but it's worth it, plus it makes for more variety when ordering. I highly recommend.
