Diner Reviews
  • "Went there for dinner on Sunday around 6:00 p.m. and it seemed 90% of the tables had 2-3 kids under 10 so noise level was a little high. Sushi was wonderful; very flavourful and tasted fresh. I'd recommend making reservations as the place was very busy."

  • "Tucked into a corner of a strip mall at Beverly Glen is this little gem of a restaurant. I had calamari and fish soup. My friend had a salad. Both were quite wonderful with a great depth of flavor. The place is rather expensive but the quality of the food is well worth it. I'll be back."

  • "A real treat. Innovative combinations. Definitely recommend the omakase. Smoked/barely grilled red-snapper that brings a waft of smokiness with every bite. Unbelievable needle fish + uni with a sprig of shiso leaf. Big thumbs up."

  • "This place has truly high quality sushi. You wouldn't expect it in a mini-mall at the top of Beverly Glen, but there it is."

  • "We liked this place. We were in LA for the Rose Bowl and went here on New Years Eve for dinner (not a party). Food choices were excellent. Sushi was good and fresh."

  • "Hands-down one of the best sushi restaurants out there! Ambiance is lovely, but the food and service are impeccable. Never a miss in my book and I've tried many. You will not be disappointed!!"

  • "We asked for omakase (let the chef decide) and it was delicious. Amazing fish and inventive presentation."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "Service: the good: Although I changed my reservation to an earlier time and they were accommodating. I specified that it was a special occasion and that it was my date's birthday. Service: the bad: There was a lot of room in the restaurant, however we seated IN BETWEEN two couples plus within earshot of a family with two little kids who were not very happy. Not very good for ambience. The kicker was that there were a ton of seats available all around the restaurant. If I had kids then I would bring them here but not on a date. It left a lot to be desired and no one mentioned the birthday thing. Food was good: the miso blacked cod was excellent, stuffed zucchini blossoms were good, but nothing too memorable or mind blowing."

  • "We are regulars at this restaurant - the food always tastes fresh, is beautifully prepared, and the service is excellent. Our most recent evening was a bit marred by a very noisy baby at the next table, but the baby can't help it."

  • "It's a great sushi bar! A personal favorite... The tempura spicy tuna stuffed jalapeño. It used to be on their specials, but now I just ask for it and they always make it. They're the best!!!"

  • "I love all the Drago family establishments for their great Italian restaurants, but they also own this great Japanese restaurant, too. Such a great intimate neighborhood gem!"

  • "We haven't been here in a while (even though it is one of our favorites), but it was my husband's birthday. Not only was it great to see the staff that recognized our reservation by name, but they were absolutely amazing! The food was delicious, the service was fast, and even though we did not order dessert, they treated us to fresh fruit and mochi and even sang Happy Birthday to my husband. It was a fantastic evening! Thank you, SHU!!"

  • "We love this place and go regularly. The sushi is always fresh and beautifully presented. There is never that cloying, mayonnaise-heavy taste that makes you think the chef is trying to cover up something. We had a fantastic dessert - a change for us - a delicious combination of banana, chocolate and creamy green tea icecream - the banana in crispy little rolls. Scrumptious!"

  • "This is one of the best neighborhood gems in the Bel Air area. It is not a very authentic, but an interesting modern fusion Japanese. Our server was very wonderful! Great evening. Thank you!!!"
