Delicious sushi with mediocre service

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... read 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.

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.

That's right. For 35 years I have been coming here and the menu is the same (price is not). The quality of the food never disappoints with fresh veges and seafood I can count on. I love their sunomono which comes with any entree. The inside was redone many years ago but still looks nice and the place is always... More

Eating excellent Japanese food is tough to do without spending a fortune. This place is an exception. The food is superb. The sushi fresh, creative, exceptional. I ate a salmon skin salad that took my breath away. Three of us ate (and ate a lot! ) for $75. The downside is the cash only part and the long wait. Go... More

Above average sushi with good value but only accepts cash. Been coming here for many years. Never disappoints.
