Echigo is located a few blocks west of the 405 on Santa Monica, which no issues for parking as they boast a spacious underground carpark. Its more of a traditional Japanese sushi/sashimi restaurant than the usual Californian offering. No fried or grilling etc……just great sushi and even better sashimi with an excellent variety of seafood and fish. All fresh and... More

It's in a bit of an unlikely location but the quality of the sushi is great - some unusual items on the menu and some daily specials which were all served simply but expertly. Some of the best sushi we've ever had outside Japan. The waitress was friendly and helpful and made our family feel very welcome.

Omakase, omagod! Same day fish, master chef! Go early when it is not crowded for the best experience.

Such amazing sushi! I'd say the quality of the fish is comparable to Sasabune - high end and everything melts in your mouth. Nothing fancy about the ambiance and decor - very unassuming. But I'm rating this place solely based on the good. Hands down one of the best sushi restaurants in LA.

Warm rice, warm service in a non traditional environment....... Best sushi on the Westside of LA.. A classic example of don't judge the food by the appearance of the outside of the place.

I went for lunch, knowing that the place lacks charm and is situated in a shopping center but ready to compromise for the sake of (apparently) outstanding sushi. Well, i had the sushi lunch consisting in 5 pieces of sushi plus one crab roll. The sushi was average and so was the roll. Even the celebrated warm rice... They do... More

My absolute favorite omakase in LA. Beats Sasabune in my opinion.

If you eat Omakase it's the best sushi in LA, period.
