Most important, the sushi was delicious. I was disappointed for two reasons: our waitress wasn’t as good as others that I’ve had there in the past, and I specified we were celebrating a birthday on the OpenTable app, but there was no acknowledgment by the restaurant or server.

Just ok. The rolls we ordered were a bit bland...the lemon roll and twilight roll. The gyoza and bake crab hand roll were tasty. The spicy tuna over crispy rice were just ok. The waitstaff is nice and efficient, just not super thrilled about the food quality, especially for the price.

Amazing food, cozy seating, seriously of all the sushi in the valley you could grab (and as we know there are hundreds and hundreds of options) this is pretty high up there in flavor and quality

We always go here for lunch and since I’m
Pregnant I decided to get the chicken teriyaki plate. Mistake. The chicken smelled and tasted like manure. I’m sorry that’s so rude. But it was the worst smell ever.

The service was terrible, but food was great. They seemed very busy but from the hostess to waitress service lacked. The hostess was very rude and was giving unnecessary attitude. The waitresses was clearly very busy but forgot about us.. we would not see her at our table at shortest 20 mins.. food was not put in for order so over an hour to get one of our rolls. The look and feel of the restaurant was beautiful and again would definitely go back for the food.. but I would sit at the sushi bar...

I have been coming to Teru Sushi for decades and sadly, the quality of the food is slipping. There are so many other options in a two block radius, and after that last meal which left me with an upset stomach (the salmon was very bad), I’ll go to Katsu-ya.

After seeing this neighborhood restaurant on a popular "mind candy" show about a bunch of lulu housewives, I decided to take my lovely wife to check it out. Food and service were terrific. I don't give out too many 5's so this one get a strong 4.

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.

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.
