My friends and I are steady guests for years. The food is excellent, the service is great. We love the restaurant. It's easy to park with validation. A bit noisy, but definitely a restaurant to be recommended.

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.

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.
