The food was good and the price was exceptional. Try the salmon truffle sushi and their fried cauliflower appetizer....so delicious!

Great sushi (awesome garlic additions to old recipes). The service was a bit overbearing. I'd definitely go again.

Great sushi restaurant within walking distance of the LA Convention center. Reasonable prices, I would recommend this restaurant. My son who is a picky eater loved their rolls and albacore fish. I will come back again when I am in the area.

Yaki-Tori (grilled chicken) was probably either boiled or steamed, which was a bit disappointing flavor-wise and less appealing, although the taste was okay.

A friend of mine had to return the spicy sushi as he made a bad selection when he had stomach problems that night. However, a chef or a server did not give us any fuss about that. Thank you for the courtesy.

Innovative Japanese food without being cliche, I really enjoyed everything I ate. The traditional sushi rolls were good, and the "chef's selections" were super delicious. The seaweed salad was one of the best I've had! The nice clean interior was matched with good service.

The fish was the star of the show, as it should be! We had a sashimi appetizer, a variety of nigiri, and the spicy tuna on crispy rice; it was all on point. The Toro and Sake were butter, melt in your mouth deliciousness! We were extremely happy with our choice and highly recommend Arashi if you’re attending an event or just in the neighborhood. We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in town!

No Frills but all the excitement you need in the food! Very fresh, great quality rolls. I prefer rolls with no to extremely little sauce so that I can tast the food. This place gets it. Trust me you will not be disappointed

The food was delicious, the fish very fresh - melt in your mouth. Seaweed salad was perfect. The staff was very attentive without being obtrusive. 3 of us had dietary restrictions (1 is allergic to capsaicin so no spicy & 2 were gluten free) and they satyed very aware of that in their preparation, even providing tamari (a gluten free soy sauce substitute). Great value for the quality and quantity. 3 of the group had cooked dishes - all good - but the fish dish was so delicious - the best of the 3 (chicken and,beef were,the,other,2)

We had a great pre-Staples concert experience on my daughter's 8th birthday. Service was friendly and knowledgeable, and food was much better than the average Japanese restaurant at this price point. This restaurant was so much better than the Japanese place at LA Live, which is way more expensive. At the end of our meal, they thoughtfully brought my daughter a fried mochi ice cream birthday cake for the able to share. We'll definitely be back!

The restaurant is across the street from Staples Center. We took the Metro there and it was a short walk to the restaurant. The food was good and the restaurant was clean. Casual dress.

Took my Goddaughter here before a concert at Staples Center, a five-minute walk away, and we loved it! Happy hour prices were low, sashimi specials were delicious, literally melted in the mouth like butter, delicate, complex flavors, friendly easy atmosphere, not stuffy. We made reservations through Open Table and had a reserved table waiting for us. The best in the house. We sat and chatted for quite a while after we finished eating, with no pressure from wait staff to move on. And a notable value, especially right next door to one of DTLA's priciest restaurants.
