We eat here at least once a week for lunch or dinner, since they first opened, and it can't be beat. The food is wonderful, the prices are LOW and the service is actually amazing, lots of staff always. The lunch combo includes 3 items for around 8 bucks! The sushi is good, not gourmet, but considering the prices it... More

Loved this gem hidden in Glendale. The sushi is super cheap, super fresh, and the staff are amazing. We came here more than anywhere in the time I lived in LA. If you want cheap and different, order the salmon collar. Its usually really cheap, char grilled and served with lemon and a nice ponzu sauce.

Their sushi is not top of the line but pretty good considering the price. There's a list of 50% off sushi to choose from and their albacore sushi salad is awesome. I think service is mediocre though and could use some improvement.

THE worst sushi I've ever eaten. CA rolls taste like they're made with crab-salad. Yuk.
