Great 'hole in the wall' sushi

Came here on a friends recommendation and did not disappoint. Bare bones sushi place with a small entree and sushi menu. Not a menu filled with a gazillion rolls. Come here for the sushi and sashimi. Sushi was fresh and you'll be hard pressed to find better quality. Very reasonably priced and... read more

The two waitresses are trying thier best but they were overwhelmed even though this is a small restaurant. The decoration is almost none existence. They can certainly put some efforts into making their restaurant to have more atmosphere and flare.

Was driving on Rt 60 and did a search with my iPhone. This place came up. This place has authentic japanese charm. Decor is very average but the sushi is very solid. The Hamachi Sashimi was top notch as were the other items I ordered. Oshitashi cold spinach dish was fantastic. The sushi chef at the bar is super sweet... More

Only ten minutes from home. Who needs to go to LA or Pasadena for great sushi? The restaurant is small. Just a few booths, a few tables, and the sushi bar. I always get the tempura dinner that includes miso soup, sticky rice, and a salad that comes with a dressing that is so yummy. My partner always orders a... More

I love this place. Nakamura-san is the best. By far the best sushi place in Monterey Park. Sit at the bar. You will love it.

I was surprised to find this restaurant in the neighborhood. I stay in a local hotel for business and was dropping off dry cleaning next door, so decided to try it. I've been back several times. The restaurant itself is quite small with regular tables and a sushi bar. I go for the sushi bar and order my usual -... More

I love this place. Food is great. Good sushi prepared by a Japanese sushi chef. The only down side is that the place is small and needs updating.

This is a small family owned restaurant in a non-descript building. It has a sushi bar and family style tables and booths. The only negative part of this restaurant is the parking, but if you time it right, you can park along Garfield Avenue in front of the restaurant. My family has been going here for years and it's the... More
