As always, the understated HAMASAKU scores with its sublime food, thoughtful and personal service and one of the prettiest rooms you will ever find in a strip mall restaurant

I'll use my wife's words - "There is sushi and there is Hamasaku sushi". My kids (sushi aficionados as well) liked it very much during our previous visit.

Excellent sushi and service was right on top of it. You ask and you shall receive. Good fresh sushi. Fun rolls. Good wine and saki choices. Tiny little venue tucked in the corner of a strip mall. Well worth finding.

I’m sorry to say that our experience here was ‘meh’. We were especially disappointed as we flew in from New Hampshire and wanted to re-visit an amazing sushi experience we had at this s spot several years ago. The food was sadly mediocre. This was no fault of the staff.

Stay away - incomprehensible service at these prices. Too many sushi options in this city for arrogance from a sushi chef

Service was courteous and prompt. The variety of nigiri and sashimi was overlapped. Overall the lunch tasting menu was good.

This was one of the worst dining experiences I have had in quite sometime. I had gone to Hamasuku two weeks ago and it was very good. However, this time when I returned with my girlfriend it was simply awful. We always sit at the bar when going to sushi restaurants. It's a great way to see how chef's prepare their dishes and to make a human connection with them. On this occasion, we were starving and looking forward to eating a LOT of sushi. However, the bar staff were all so busy doing prep-work, they wouldn't even make eye contact with us. We got two orders...then they went back to prepping. After 20 minutes of being ignored, we paid for our bottle of sake and went to another sushi restaurant. I don't think I will ever go back. They do good work, but there are too many places in LA that treat you better.
