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!

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.

One of our favorite restaurants with the best Sushi in Los Angeles. This time we went on a Saturday night and the service was not as top notch as we've experienced in the past. Chalk it up to a busy night.

Excellent meal and good service on a busy Saturday night (in primetime, no less - 7pm). We were a table of 5, which can be chaotic, but the server was very patient. We ordered sushi, for the most part, and the food came out quickly. Almost too quickly. The food was delicious, the fish was fresh, and the atmosphere was lively, but not too loud. Great meal!

Ive been going to Teru Sushi for over 10 years and I love it ! The owner is very friendly and makes you feel like your walking into his home. The staff is great and the food is amazing !
Its a great place for groups and dates. The staff knows what their doing and the service is great. I personaly love the patio atmosphere, it feels cosy and just hearing the chatter and laughter all around makes it a fun place to hang out. If I lived closer I would probably be there everynight hahhaha
