Great dinner

Had a great dinner, decided to take the menu and the quality of the fish was just amazing. The service was very friendly and quick. Unfortunately you cannot make a reservation but the wait is really worth it.

I've heard a lot of hype over sugarfish since I left LA. Some friends suggested we go during my visit so I eagerly agreed. The wait was over and hour so we hung out at the tables outside. I tried the nozawa set. Everything was good. But the Albacore sushi and blue crab roll were excellent. I'd go back just... More

All Sugarfish locations are small and there is often a wait. However, the sushi is melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The rice is served warm and offers an interesting contrast to the cool fish. Definitely order the Trust Me which is a chef's tasting menu. Every course was better tasting than the last.May be the best sushi I have ever had and I... More

pros - salmon delish, belly perfect, uni right up there with katsuya - you get the idea. cons - host not super personable/friendly but we got in without reservations. you will most likely sit at the bar - those stools are HIGH. visited this particular location some time back and it was at 4 stars for various reasons. returned last...

You have the option here of picking several flights of the best sushi around. They serve small plates of very interesting "true" sushi options, and boy are you full and happy at the end of the meal. Service is not fast, so the waits to get in are long. This is very fresh and great sauces.

This is not your typical American sushi restaurant. Although this is a chain the sushi is outstanding. The only negative is that the rice falls apart easily so popping the whole piece in your mouth is less messy. The fish is very fresh and each portion is a good size. Service is omakase style which means you eat it the... More

go early to get seated. we went on a thursday at 515pm and got the last table. The fish is great quality and although this is a chain they still have the magic happening. The sushi is old school - some of it is cured or marinated adding flavour and decreasing the amount of soy needed - that is the... More

the fish was fresh and the food was great overall. I would come back. The only draw back is that there are no substitutions on the menu. You must pick from the menu and stick to it.

Sugarfish is good sushi, but if you ask for siracha or ginger or wasabi, you will get nothing but an look. The chef will be insulted that you dare ask to alter his serving. I was actually lectured by the server on this. I happen to like some wasabi and siracha added, so I won't be back. If you think... More

This non decrepit restaurant is sitting quietly amongst the shops in this small strip mall area, but there is nothing average about the food as is witnessed by the queue and waiting times. Once inside there is a long thin room with small tables squeezed in on one side and a bar with seating on the other.. Staff here are... More
