“Good quality food with a friendly sushi chef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

My hubby and I came here as we were staying in the nearby Miyako hotel. We came into the restaurant at around 10pm, and boy, was it packed. We took a number and waited for ard 20mins for our table. We ordered a california handroll, a spider roll, a tempura+teriyaki chicken bento, and a tonkatsu with rice. The sushi chef was very friendly and immediately gave us hot disposable towels to freshen up. Very good service! The food was very fresh. Tonkatsu was very well done, and was crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The california handroll was done in front of us and very fresh. The green tea ice cream served with the bento set was very good too. The chef was very attentive and told the waiter to refill our ocha when we have finished it. He also told the waiter to bring 2 spoons as he knew that we will only have one ice cream from the bento set and thus will be sharing the ice cream. The chef was also accomodating and even though the last order had closed for the night, when another 2 customers who were seated beside us requested for more sushi, he accomodated them and made the sushi per their request. I will definitely be back here when I visit LA again.

“Excellent Sushi worth waiting for!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

The restaurant is always full so you may have to wait in order to get a table but it is well worth the wait. Whenever I travel to LA, Oomasa is one of my stops. Sushi is excellent!

“Crowded but worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We meet our friends here on occasion - usually on a Friday or Saturday night. It does get crowded so expect a wait. We come here to get our fix of Japanese cuisine. I think their combinations are great. I normally order the tonakatsu/sashimi combination - the tonkatsu is crispy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside. Their sashimi is also pretty fresh. Included in their combinations are rice, salad, miso soup and ice cream. I guess I think their combinations are a pretty good value and food quality has always been very good.

“Great dinner combos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

When I'm in LA and in the mood for sushi, I really like this place. They may not have the absolute highest quality sushi, but it is pretty good, and I really like their dinner specials. In particular, I go for the sashimi/sushi/chicken teryaki/salad combo, or sometimes the same combo but with tempura in place of sashimi. It's a lot of food (it comes with miso soup and green tea ice cream too; there's also a very random macaroni salad that doesn't really fit in at a Japanese restaurant), but the variety is great, quality is generally good, and I enjoy it.
