    Dined on 10/9/2012
    The service was horrible and the place was 2/3 empty. We had to chase someone down everytime we wanted or needed anything....literally getting up and finding someone or standing up to wave someone down. It took 20 minutes-literally-to place a food order because our waiter was nowhere to be found. We almost walked out before he finally appeared. They weren't understaffed, as there were plenty of waiters and helpers walking around-they just werent interested in serving customers. The food was average, not up to par with 15 other high end restaurants in Manhattan Beach within a 3 block radius that also charges $114 for a 2 person meal. I am not sure how they keep that spot in the Metlox Center with sub par food and service.

    I've been to this restaurant without a complaint a handful of times, however, this night was the exception. Not only was the wait staff unattentive, but errors in our order occured three times. I would be willing to write it off as a bad night, but after the managers apology, we got the bill with items that were their mistakes earlier, and double charged for a couple items. Not sure what happened that evening, but it's distorted my view of the restaurant.

    Went for my wife's birthday. Very nice place.. but still hip. We were surprised at the number of people with kids.. but it wasn't a hinderance. The food is fantastic and a great value as well... thought it would be more expensive. We even saw a celebrity dining with friends. The staff is very warm, helpful, and attentive. The best sushi place in the South Bay!

New Chef, New menu and different vibe. The new "no changing" the dish rule is dumb.

    They made some unwelcome changes to the menu that eliminated some favorite dishes or made changes to them. For the dishes that changed, they were still good... just different. I hope they plan to add back some of the dishes they eliminated...like the bikini roll!!!

    Way over-priced. Least expensive bottle of 300ml sake was $30! The quality of sushi was OK, but not anything special. They did not have salmon skin or fresh shrimp. The maitre d' neglected to tell Open Table we had shown up on time, and we were listed as a no-show, which I had to take the time to resolve later. The service and ambiance was fine. We will not make a repeat visit.

    The food was noticeably worse than the last few times I was there. Given that Sashi Sushi is not bargain priced to begin with, I doubt that I would go back there again. At one time, it was a popular place but the crowd was much thinner on this visit which may reflect the decline in the food quality.

    Made a reservation for 4 plus infant on Monday night( Memorial day ) at630PM. I was a little hesitant because i have never been there before and was not sure if it was going to be suitable for our young infant son. The restaurant was very accommodating and much to my surprise there was a lot of other young children. Great place for drinks and casual dinner in an elegant setting in Manhattan beach. will go back again for sure.

    Used to be one of our favorite restaurants. Not so anymore. Since the chef left and it is under a new chef...the food has gone downhill! We were very dissatisfied. The menu has gotten complicated. They added specials which even confuse things further. All our favorite items are taken off the menu. We were unhappy to say the least.

    Walked past this place a few times to go to other spots in Manhattan Beach. The Sushi menu seems pricey and there are a lot of very good Sushi places in town. We therefore decided to try the "cooked; fooods. We were susprised at the diversity of the menu and the quality of the food. Something "different" at the beach for sure.

    The food is outstanding here, and service was great. They let us pace ourselves and we never felt rushed to finish our meal. My only issue is that the menu rotates often so when I return to have my favorite dishes they are sometimes gone from the menu! Still, I've never had anything bad here even with different tastes around our table. There is something for everyone.
