A great neighborhood place, but perhaps a bit more -- we have family in Paris and San Francisco who make sure to have a meal at Totoya during their visits to NYC. Good variety of sushi, sashimi, platters and rolls, and hot food. It's been through several renovations over the years -- prices go up a bit each time, but... More

Had sushi here - spicy tuna and other kind of rolls - all excellent and plentiful for the price. Good quality and freshly made. Edamame and gyoza also good.. Not sure how cheap sushi is in LA if people think this place is expensive - we had dinner for two with wine and tip for less than $60.00 - cheapest... More

Good sushi, sashimi, and excellent teriyaki. Every dish looked as pleasant as it tasted. Abundant portions and a staff that allows you to linger over a cup of tea. No rush, just a relaxing good time with good food. A step above other neighborhood places, priced. Been there a hundred times, and never disappointed.

Excellent service and tasty sushi. Other reviews say its pricey but for New York I didn't think $37 for more sushi than we were able to finish and including Miso soup was unreasonable value. Wine was €22 for a bottle which again isn't extortionate

I had vegetable Teriyaki. It was the best I ever tasted. However, it was $14. I would go back to taste it again, but I will make it a rare treat. The ginger dressing on the tiny house salad was a little too salty. The waitress was excellent, but we were the only ones in the restaurant for a late... More

Even for NY prices. Good sushi, very attentive service, but just over the line into the "too pricey" range.
