What Insiders Are Saying
Sawtelle's Tsujita does the best tsukemen-style ramen this side of the Pacific and some of the best overall ramen in Los Angeles.
One of the best, if not the best, traditional sushi restaurants in LA.
Sat at the bar and did omakase. Was a fantastic experience and couldn’t ask for much more.
Very high-end customers would like the uniqueness and authenticity of Omakase and Sake selection and friendly service. For others, note that nigiri sushi comes in one piece at the price of two sushi's in other excellent sushi restaurants in near by West LA and Marina Del Rey. If you only care about good sushi/sashimi without pots, fries, and mixed seafood bowls, you may feel this place is pricey.
Sushi Tsujita is one of the best spots I've seen for authentic edomae-style sushi and their lunch options cannot be beat! Reservations strongly recommended.
They always pay special attention to our needs and experience. Pricey but compared to other high end Omakase places, we find this restaurant the best deal in terms of variety, quality and service.
I had this place on my list for a while because of the reviews and i'm sorry to say I was utterly disappointed. I did the Omakase chef's menu and everything they served to me was bland and tasteless. LA Eater's review of this place is way off the mark. The food is overpriced for what you get and the atmosphere of the restaurant is equally bland and uninspired. For $120, LA has dozens of places that offer MUCH better sushi and a far superior atmosphere. The upside was that the service was excellent - attentive, prompt and helpful.
Sushi was excellent, although there were certain fish that were not to my personal taste. We had the medium level omakase and it left you feeling right near satisfaction but not quite there. The service was great and the chefs are very personable. Plating was beautiful. Would definitely recommend.
Honestly this place is the best high-end sushi/japanese cuisine out there within this price range.
The nigiri is not the best in the world but it’s definitely in the top 5 of Los Angeles.
The sashimi is the best in Los Angeles.
The appetizers blew my mind - especially the mushroom soup.
I will come here again.
As good as usual
Went to Sushi Tsujita for my 1st year anniversary and was treated to a delightful meal from chef Hide and staff.
It was a cooler late September night and the sanma season had just started a few weeks ago. Chef’s treatment with torching/charring just the skin to smoke the oil of the mackerel really piqued the senses and was fantastic/ unique in its preperation...definitely one of the many highlights of the night.
The chefs meticulous preparation and knife skills were also on display tonight. The kombu wrapped sweet shrimp was butterflied beautifully that it draped effortlessly over the Shari...it was rich and creamy. The marinating with kombu must’ve done something to mask the metallic taste when you normally get from eating ami ebi, but it also had the effect of stiffened the flesh for greater texture/resistance which I throughly enjoyed.
Chef Hide’s Shari is lighter than one will find popular in right now in Tokyo, but packs a fantastic amount of sourness and richness. The rice was warm, just enough to radiate between your lips, heating the oils of the sliced fish and contrasting them with the slight acidity that comes from properly seasoned Sushi rice.
The fish that was served were well rested, that they were served after having a moment to acclimate to the room temperature further relaxes the slivers into textural marvel.
Chef also surprised with something I’ve never had before, the baby snapper. It had softer flavors resembling its older self but the bounce of its flesh was nothing that I’ve had to date.
Along with the unique serving of soy char glazed scallops wrapped with crispy nori. What a shear delight to enjoy such crisp non chewy nori for a change. My teeth shattered the seaweed with such delight as it sunk into a still warm charred, meaty, rare Hokkaido scallop.
Thank you to Chef Hide and Minami for the hospitality, respect and professionalism that one can seldom find in the Los Angeles sprawling food scene.
The fish quality is very low, while the price is very high. I would not come back again. The money I spent I can go to better places for cheaper price. Very disappointed.
Very good sushi but expensive for what it was
Great service and well decoration of dishes.
The food is hit and miss. Sometimes all the dishes are great and sometimes a handful are.
It will be difficult to eat in another sushi restaurant after having experienced Sushi Tsujita. This is an exceptional place, not cheap but you will not regret it.
Very good sushi but at these prices, the expectations are very high and unfortunately I left feeling that this was not a fair value.
Amazing food. Amazing chef...wow!
The waitress was rude (gave me a body-check,,,hmmm), and the food was mediocre. We paid over $300 for lunch Omakase with drinks which I thought was very over-rated. My expectation was high as this is supposed to be one of the best sushi restaurant in Southern California, but we were very frustrated.
Overall Tsukiji was very nice but I don’t think it was worth $400 for 2 people for 2 $150 omakase dinners and a small bottle of sake. The truth is there are many restaurants in LA I’d rather go to (including other stellar omakase meals), for this price.
Very good fish
Limited to what they want to serve you
Truly spectacular omakase. I took my 13-year old son and we absolutely loved it. The smoked king mackerel sushi may have been the favorite of the 14 types of sushi we tasted.
Great sushi spot in West LA. I think the pricing is a bit high given some of the other locations around that provide a similar experience and quality. If you like drinking with your meals be prepared to spend some $$.
Amazing negri sushu
Perfect to the T
Attentive service from executive chef who cheerfully explained the sashimi and sushi served. Wonderfully fresh fish and seafood.
amazing as always! great omakase. the fish is really the best around that neighborhood.
for 400 dollars, it better be the best sushi meal ever. it was sub par sushi and we left hungry.
One of my favorite places to enjoy sushi. For dinner, there are 3 options of omakase ($120, $150, $200) that includes cooked dishes as well as sushi. Definitely a special occasion place. Reminds me of being in Japan. Beautiful presentation! Excellent service!
Sushi Tsujita is one of the highest-rated omakase experiences in Los Angeles, and so I wanted to try it for a special occasion to celebrate my wife's birthday. Overall the experience was good, not great, unique but exceedingly expensive for what it was and not as good as several other omakase experiences we have enjoyed in LA for considerably less money.
Definitely call for a reservation...they only take reservations for dinner on the hour (6, 7, 8pm) and the place is tiny, but quaint and comfortable. Located on Sawtelle, surrounded by many other restaurants and many sushi restaurants...the decor is simple, minimal and elegant.
Service was good...attentive, friendly and helpful, but disappointed that twice (ahead of time and at the restaurant) I informed them it was my wife's birthday and they did not do anything to celebrate or mention it (despite a $450+ total bill), including omakase, beer and a glass of sake.
You have three choices for omakase (price point based and quantity of food and division between appetizers and pieces of sushi). Prices range from $125 to $200 per person.
The quality and presentation of the food is excellent. Very good sushi, creative appetizers, unique tastes and presentations. We tasted totally different foods and textures that we never had before. The sushi was sourced from all over the world.
Overall the value was questionable...while it was a unique experience, the service was good (not great) and the price was significantly higher than many other excellent omakase experiences we have enjoyed in LA...so it was a fun visit, but we will not be back.
new chefs, innovative, overall improvement
Great food a bit pricey for what u get but the quality of the food is up there
Good sushi and presented in a different style ... but it was way too pricey. I'd go back only if prices were more reasonable -- the food was good.
Best sushi I’ve ever had by an extremely wide margin. A must try
The fish was very high quality and clearly well made. The appetizers did not wow me (the quality was nice but a few felt more like casual snacks rather than fully composed dishes), but this was a minor point for me. The main issue for us was unrelated to the food quality/taste. The pacing was off, with long inconsistent stretches between a couple of the courses (and about 30 minutes between dessert and the final palate cleanser, which we didn’t even realize was coming because so much time had passed after the dessert). Also, our servers got confused and served us the same dish twice in a row (with the obligatory dish/ingredient explanation and all) before we had to stop her and point out that we had already *just* eaten this dish. Very odd they didn’t realize this considering there were only 3 or 4 tables at the restaurant in total, hence not much of an excuse for any confusion. We were also incorrectly charged for a more expensive omakase dinner set and had to ask the server to void/re-charge our cards. Again, not sure why this happened with so few diners in the restaurant. I do think the sushi was beautifully done - no complaints there - but for the price, their service needs improvement, especially given that an omakase meal is not only about the food but also the overall experience.
Every detail was perfectly attended to, each dish was so meticulously composed, and each piece of fish so perfectly cared for as to seem like a special present from a thoughtful lover.
Remains the best, most authentic traditional sushi restaurant in Los Angeles
Tsujita provides an exceptional Omakase experience for connoisseurs of sushi style cuisine. It is one of the best examples of this style that I have experienced in the United States, though its unassuming decor belies its remarkable quality. The chefs and staff are all Japanese and have been expertly trained in preparing and serving the finest Japanese foods in the best way possible. It is an expensive experience, but worth the high prices ranging from $120 tp $200 per person as any gourmet meal is worth its price. Each piece of sushi is expertly prepared to the highest standard and contains only the freshest fish of the best kinds available at that time. The server explains the nature of each piece individually and notes any special qualities or characteristics of the dish one should know. A smoked mackerel dish was presented in a glass bubble which the diner removes to release the smoke contained within to preserve the full flavor of the smoking until the moment it is consumed. The flavors of virtually all the offerings are subtle, but possess the magic that only the freshest seafood provides. Correctly made sushi can be inverted with chopsticks without the rice crumbling or losing its structural integrity. Each piece served here is perfectly made with the rice formed in the most exacting way and the pieces handling very easily compared to lesser sushi restaurants. For those who can appreciate the subtlety and refinement of the best sushi experience, I would recommend Tsujita highly.
I consider myself a sushi snob. This place is legit. Definitely top 5 in LA. Very authentic and an incredible experience. Not cheap though. Expect to pay $400-$500 per couple. I'll go again for sure.
It was very good meal as usual but health department makes them destroy and I felt very very sorry for them
It’s was my mom’s birthday dinner and the food was amazing. The service was very professional and prompt. I love this restaurant. The food is always satisfying. The staff and the food made my mom immensely happy.
