Sushi Enya is a Japanese sushi restaurant that first opened in the heart of Little Tokyo in Downtown, LA. After five years of perseverance and experimentation in Downtown, LA, we opened our second location in beautiful Old Town Pasadena. Our third location, which opened in 2018, is located in the beach city of Marina Del Rey. Our owner Chef Kimiyasu Enya trained for over 10 years in Japan to perfect his craft. It is our goal to ensure that quality remains consistent and every experience is enjoyable for all guests.

    Uní from Hokkaido is delicious. Seared salmon belly is a 7/10! We got the truffle fries … good but not exactly worth getting. (They have so much on the menu ~ you’re better off going with something else they recommend.) Any roll with crab salad likely will not disappoint 😍 kind servers! We were all the way in the back of the restaurant and wished we had been seated somewhere closer to the action but they’re a busy spot for good reason .. so , no complaints. I’d recommend trying this restaurant.

    I’ve been here quite a few times and always have an awesome dining experience. The service is great, the sushi is always perfect and delicious, large assortment of rolls, and the energy in there is great as well. I highly recommend this spot, and definitely make a reservation ahead of time.

    May very well be the best sushi I've had in L.A. Sure, there are places you can go and pay less for cuts of fish – but it probably won't be as good, and the selection won't be as broad. Sushi rolls are also perfect, instead of thick hunks you get a thin-sliced roll that isn't overwhelming and makes for an unbeatable bite. Save up a few shekels, and take your date for a lovely dining experience.

    The sushi is incredibly fresh and seasond beautifully such that the flavor of the fish is complemented but not overwhelmed. The wait staff are courteous and attentive and the physical ambience is warm and inviting. The only issue was the level of the background music which was just loud enough to eliminate the use of a normal speaking voice when conversing with someone across the table, which causes the noise to increase even more.

    Had $200 Omakase, sushi was good but there was nothing special. Could say it was worth $100, not $200, But the service and ambience were good. Not sure if I will come back for another Omakase, but maybe for a la carte.

    The food was not fresh, so I couldn’t finish most of them. I use left hand, and the chief and waiters failed to accommodate that. The price was therefore ridiculous that I could have easily found a better omakase. Strongly not recommended. I was so embarrassed to take my friends there.

    This place was know for amazing sushi. Once they expanded, it became manufactured. I love growth but if it kills quality then I’m opposed. Thanks for the memories but that’s my last time going there.

    Omakase was excellent! We come here every year for our anniversary. It is amazing every single time! Justin, the sushi chef, really does his thing. Aside from Omakase, we love the akami and cherry blossom roll. Service is always great here. We parked across the st at the hotel.

    The Little Tokyo Sushi Enya does not have the same standards as does the Beverly Grove location. The rice used in sushi is extremely important for making good sushi. The sushi rice was poor for multiple reasons: it fell apart and did not have the correct mouth feel. The prices for sushi are too high for the poor sushi.
