Amazingly fresh sushi

Fish is very fresh and the rolls are to die for! Can eat there every day! Service is really good. It is a gem that is not too known and hopefully it will stay this way.

It has been years since my last visit to this spot. When I needed to find a sushi place I remembered how good this was. Well I was absolutely correct. Delicious sushi, great cold green bean salad and wonderful wait staff. Quick service, just the right amount of noise and tables. Happy to be reconnected with a great place to... More

easy relaxed place with just simply very tasty and fresh food; my friends love quality of the sashimi; i don't eat raw fish but was still delighted with the crab roll and fabulous piece of sea bass (for $13.00) - apparently a real favorite of the many regulars.

As a sushi aficionado and married to a Japanese woman I have travelled half way around the world and have eaten sushi in many Japanese sushi restaurants. Ironically some of the best sushi we ever ate was last night at Sushi King just 2 blocks from our home. The chef/owner, Saito-San, is a master at his craft and has been... More

This restaurant is in our neighborhood and I'm a little torn about writing it up. You see, I'm afraid you will get our seats. It is smaller space as other have pointed out and I too suggest you get here early. They are only open for dinner and do not take reservations. Super good sushi! We crave the food here.... More

Very tasty sushi. Good sized cuts of fish. One of the best sushi joints I have been to, though the menu does not have the vast selection of some other restaurants. Service was good. The place is very popular and space for waiting is limited so suggest you go early.

We live most of the year in New Zealand and have limited access to great sushi, so when we hit Southern Cal., we can't wait to try new sushi restaurants. Based on a friends recommendation, we went to Sushi King and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Fortunately we were able to find an open table, because the restaurant is... More

A friend of mine took me to this place saying that Sushi King has been his favorite for more than 20 years. The name of the restaurant sounded fishy to a Japanese but the quality was..... outstanding! (Possible discomfort) Not much except: 1) you have to find a parking space along Wilshire Blvd which can be a nightmare in LA!... More

Ate here on a Saturday evening with my teenage daughter on a recent visit to Santa Monica. We were not disappointed! Place was full, so we sat at the sushi bar and got to watch the chefs at work. Everything was really good and fresh, but the rainbow roll and softshell crab rolls were the stars! We would definitely come... More

I have been craving sushi for weeks and am so glad I picked this place to satisfy my craving. The sushi here is great, fresh fish no fuss. Its authentic, we sat at the bar and the sushi chef placed the sushi on our plates as he made then. The menu is simple, a handfull of rolls and a bunch... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
