The best neighborhood

Nagao is where you go when you want great sushi. If Nagao is not happy with the fish it will not be served. Always the freshest tastes. The service is always with a smile & a suggestion.

My family and I have been dining at Nagao for years. It is extremely small, they won't seat you until your entire party is there and it is really good. The people are friendly and the food is delicious. It can get pretty loud in there, so if you want to have a quiet converstation, this is not th restaurant... More

Nagao is the kind of place you do not want to tell others about for fear you will wait for a table. We have been coming for years & have never been disappointed. The fish is very fresh or Nagao won't serve it. My son & I love the uni & if Nagao doesn't think it is fresh enough we... More

Nagao Sushi is one of my favorite sushi spots. The fish is so fresh that it melts in your mouth! There are a few tables and a sushi bar. The rolls on the menu are unique to Nagao. The sauces her prepares for dipping pleasure are a perfect match for his creations. I love the enoki mushroom tempura rolls and... More

While Nagao sushi has been superb, a recent experience was more than wanting. We had excellent toro and soft shell crab appetizers, but then came the sushi lunch combination. It had some wonderful pieces, but what appeared to be hirame and tai were distinctly stale and slightly putrid. The ponzu sauce was used to cover what was less than fresh... More

The frontage is low key and seating is limited but this is the place for great sushi!It doesn't get fresher and seeing the numerous sushi chefs at work is evidence of great product

Nagao is a small Japanese restaurant in Brentwood with a sushi bar and tables. The toro is always great, the salmon collar is a favorite and for terrific value - get the sushi platter where the chef choices the 17 pieces. A "go-to" for low key dinner, but with great sushi and sashimi. Go early, always crowded.

I keep trying to find great Sushi, in a great atmosphere, and I keep ending up back at Nagao. It's not just sushi, it's salads, it's conversation, it's family. Love when I see 8 year olds ordering from memory. Love the fact that the albacore Sashami is always consistently the best anywhere as is all the food they serve. Love... More

This place is easy to miss, tucked between a Starbuck's and a gas station. It's a neighborhood favorite, packed with regulars. In LA you can throw a rock and hit a sushi bar, they're everywhere, but this is one of the best. They make incredibly fresh and tasty salads, a specialty here. I always order the vegetable salad, which has... More
