Excellent service and food. Good size sushi rolls with perfect amount of fish. Awesome garlic edamame. Table was ready right when we got to the restaurant. My go to sushi spot before going to any LA Live/Staples Center event.

Thank you Arashi! We had a great time with a large group. Two tables of 8 people each. Just a great way to connect with our friends while sharing a wonderful meal!

The customer service was outstanding and the food was delicious! I highly recommend coming here if you are craving sushi and want to indulge right before a live sporting event. It's a quick 5-minute walk to Staples Center or LA Live. The options were plentiful and the waiters/waitresses were very helpful and prompt. The Happy Hour is very generous as it runs from 5pm-8pm. They have a specialty sushi menu, which I found to be my favorite. Everything was fresh and outstanding in taste and quality.

If u have been to asia/ japan, u wouldnt want to visit here. Food quality is below average and the shrimp tempura was not fresh. And hence for the quality, its a tad overpriced

The food is great, but in the end we ordered some sushi and it was not so great. I would stick with the selection of yakitori and the rolls.
The seabass yakitori is to die for!!!

I loved this sushi place, but it seems that something changed. The sushi was not good this time. It did not feel fresh and was probably not cut properly.

Looks unassuming from the outside, but has very good quality sushi at a reasonable price. Happy hour pricing makes this an even better deal. Would definitely eat here again.

If you don't like chocolate on your ice cream, let server know when you order. Otherwise, your ice cream will be covered with it.

Sushi was good for price. Would not consider it great. It is definitely not kid friendly which is fine if you know ahead of time. Rolls were good size for price. Would eat there again without kids

Had fairly high hopes for this place given the reviews. Maybe it’s because it was 1130 when it open but it smelt like chorlox as it was just cleaned. Sushi was ok as special plates was better. Service couldn’t read environment as kept interrupting while our table was engaged in conversation. No specials review. I wouldn’t recommend nor come back if there were other options. Service was sub par as there was no follow up after food was delivered. After mediocre experience, 20% tip was still left.
