“Disgusting Servers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The sushi chefs here at Oyako chain smoke outside their restaurant, then after throwing their cigarette butts in the street, walk back to their counter and without washing their hands, prepare sushi! This in violation of Santa Monica and L.A. county health laws.

When I complained to the chef he pretended to not understand English. Don't eat here unless the smell of smoking and cigarettes in your food doesn't bother you.

“Excellent little Japanese restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012 via mobile

With a very good set lunch menu at great value. A very smiley lady good quality sushi and shasimi salad though more salad then sashimi. They could work on the interior decor a little more but I would go back to try more on the menu.
