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.

The food and price are excellent. But the service is very slow and you often get items you did not order, or the wrong items. The food was cold. We were the first table at 11:40 and we waited for waiter and food for a long time. We left the restaurant at almost 2 p.m. NOT a good thing when you need to get back to work.

Very mediocre sushi place. No attention to detail in roll making, even for simple rolls--they looked more like swiss roll than sushi roll, with way too much rice, and were haphazardly tossed on a plate. Taste was only fair. Service was awful. It was a slow evening in a small restaurant and it took 30 minutes for the server to bring us our check, despite the busboy walking past a million times looking at out table. Very disappointing--much better options in DTLA or nearby Little Tokyo.

The sushi was just ok. I am not sure about the quality of it. I’ve had much better elsewhere so won’t be returning back. Other patrons were wearing t shirts and ball caps. An extremely casual atmosphere.

I came here with some of my co-workers and may I say I had never in my life thought of trying raw fish 🐟. Glad I did! This place beats Wokcano 💯 times better.

I reserved a table in advance via OT. Showed up and the host informed me they had no tables. He said, "Reservations are not guaranteed". I asked, "Why accept reservations if you're not going to honor them?" He said, "I don't know.." I asked if there's a manager I could speak to. He replied, "We don't have one." 🤔 He then sat us at the sushi bar and never returned. All he had to say was, "Sorry for the confusion. We'll seat you when the next table opens up..." We work nearby and are regulars. After today's treatment, we'll never return again...

Great selection of rolls at great prices. I was looking for a place that would take a big group reservation on a Friday night and they were one of the few places that would. Service was great and they accommodated our large group and kept bringing out food.

The place is lacking character. It's basically a sports bar, not a sushi bar. The service was fine but not friendly or helpful. The place reeked of bleach and the food was mediocre and not worth the price. I'm willing to pay top dollar for sushi IF ITS WORTH IT.
