Best sushi in LA. I don't care how much people brag about other spots. Sushi is always super fresh, delicate, melts in your mouth. Favorite rolls here are: salmon skin handroll, OMG, DA BOMB, CRUNCHY ROLL, and SPICY TUNA--insist on them wrapping with soy paper ON THE OUTSIDE. You will not be disappointed. Easy cheap valet parking and often can find street parking.

This restaurant has been a neighborhood staple for over 20 years. Food is always consistently good. Not great for a quiet date but if you’re looking for an energetic atmosphere and solid service along with authentic great tasting fresh food then this is the place.

Every sushi roll was delicious. Always a dependable spot for non-traditional sushi.

People can say all they want their trendoid sushi place is best but this place has been best sushi in LA for years. My faves: OMG roll, DA BOMB, albacore sushi so delicate, California and salmon skin handrolls--scrumptious.

Our favorite restaurant for Sushi in the greater Los Angeles area. Our family drives the 405 from West Los Angeles to Studio City because the food is as good or better then the Westside and a better value!

Sushi was good, but not outstanding. The actual layout of the restaurant is unusual and somewhat awkward. Try to get a table in the very back.

Our only critique was the time it took for us to get the bottle of wine we ordered. We were already on our second order of sushi when it arrived. We were told by our server that "he hasn't had time to go get it". You need a little fine tuning of your procedures. Sushi itself was just great as always. It's our favorite place for what we call "American sushi" - that is, sushi that's nothing like authentic Japanese sushi in that it has imaginative ingredients and preparations, but is SO delicious!

We've been going here for years. I love the food, the quality of fish is great. My only complaint is that over the years we've seen the price of the spicy tuna on rice cake go up and the portion smaller. And it's one of my most favorite items they have.

Our favorite restaurant! Food is always excellent and consistent. The service is great. Our waitress, Koko always remembers our drink order and greets us at the table! The owner is there and takes great pride in the quality of the food and service! Sat outside for the first time. It was great.

Teru Sushi is always consistently GREAT. Love sitting at the sushi bar watching the chef's work. They use the freshest fish (no fake crab) and its delightful.
