Delicious! Coming here is like dining in some sushi restaurant in Japan, I am fortunate to visit Japan for few days and experienced the authentic fresh sushi. Sushi Ota absolutely reminds me of those unforgettable days we spent there with my husband. I recommend to make a reservation especially for dinner. Excellent Japanese cuisine!

We are, my daughter and I sushi lovers, and we must confess that this sushi restaurant, is among the best we had in North America. The chefs and the service staff are japanese and also most of the clientele. We let them guide us to pinpoint their favourites and we were extremely pleased with their choices. Freshness, quality, originality a... More

When I'm abroad I tend to choose ethnic restaurants as I love to taste different kind of cuisine, and I make sure I never miss sushi, as Japanese cuisine it's my mostly preferred one. So we booked a table for two and we had this special dinner at Sushi Ota. A very simple restaurant, Japanese style furniture, 8 chefs under... More

Being a sushi aficionado from that first and foremost sushi-addicted city, L.A., I can vouch without reservation that former L.A. Chef Ota's offerings here need take no back seat to any other bi-coastal city's finest sushi outposts. Tried to book a second night in a row right there and then at our first extraordinary fish fest here, but as local... More

This restaurant has the best Japanese food in town. The quality of the ingredients, the taste and the presentation are excellent. The waiters are nice and helpful, the atmosphere is authentically Japanese. In order to eat here you need to make a reservation, sometimes way ahead. This restaurant is a bit pricey, but it is worth it.
