Great little sushi in Japantown

This looks like a lot of other little neighborhood sushi spots, but the quality and value set it apart. The staff was friendly and helpful, the sushi fresh and pricing was reasonable. One note: this was cash only, no CC.

This place is always crowded (and with good reason) The food is consistently good, reasonably priced and the service is super! They really turn the crowd over but you never feel rushed by them. If there is a wait you just put your name on the board and # in your party and you will be called fairly quickly. They... More

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in the whole world. Granted, I haven't tried sushi in every part of the world, so until then, Hide is my favorite in all the world! Their fish is the freshest. It is the most unique. And there is something to be said about a sushi restaurant that doesn't offer rolls, doesn't take credit... More

Lovely dinner with salmon skin salad, fresh sushi rolls of al varieties and all the best and most fresh ever. Nice service but pretty long wait. Cash only too. Beer and wine. Would always go back when in town.

This is an old fashion sushi restaurant that's been around for nearly 40 years. I used to come here as a student at UCLA in the 80's and havn't been back since. I went today with my family and it's as good as I remember it. Great quality fish and sushi chefs. Don't expect fancy rolls slathered in sauce, this... More

Fresh, delicious sushi and above average prices. Quality worth the price! Only downfall is that you must pay in cash (though ATM machine in restaurant)

For authentic and unique Japanese sushi, this is the place. Nothing fancy, crowed, noisy and the best service, but once your dish is in front of you, it is worth the trouble.

Five of us went there to have dinner. We knew it will be crowded so we went there around five o'clock. We were missing one person who were running an errand nearby but we were seated to a table. Then they told us that all of us need to be there to make orders and they made us stood up... More

Every time I come to L.A., a visit to Hide is always necessary... So good, so fresh, and great staff. Yes, it gets crowded if you come after 5pm, but the intimate elbow to elbow is part of the experience. So what if you gotta pay cash! Come prepared and you cannot be disappointed. We always order the Scallop dynamite... More

Finding excellent sushi is tough without spending a fortune, but this place is tops. The food was superb and exceptional quality. I agree with other comments "The downside is the cash only part and the long wait" but we got there 5 minutes before the doors opened and were in and out quickly.
