The place is lively on a Sturday evening with. a neighborhood feel. The sushi is not memorable, the tempura easily forgettable. The price is a bit high for the quality.

We had our family lunch here when visiting UCLA in April. It 's located in Japan town of LA , a rather dull area. The food is pretty good overall but things seem a bit expensive compared to its ambience and location. This restaurant accept cash only oddly enough. The monkfish liver is very good here , other dishes are... More

This restaurant is small, noisy and bustling with patrons and waiters. The unique signing in for seating via the chalk board near the entrance gives you an idea of the informality. Be sure and stay close because if you are not there as your name comes up, they will skip you. This area called Little Osaka is not to be... More

I have been coming to Hide for more than 30 years. I guess that tells you I like it. Actually the fish quality is very good. The portions are really decent and very fresh. They are friendly not just to me as a regular but to all that pass through the doors. I am very happy because they almost always... More

Hide seems to be a very popular restaurant serving traditional sushi/sashimi (i.e no fusion type rolls) which is what I like. We went on a Saturday night at 7pm and the wait was roughly 30 minutes, not too bad I gathered. We ordered a tempura set dinner, and many types of nigiri sushi (salmon, tuna, yellowtail, ikura, unagi, scallop, monkfish... More

I came here with a friend and family, on the friends recommendation of excellent local Sushi. We were not disappointed. It's a fairly unprepossessing place from the outside, sitting on a fairly quiet side street, with a mixture of commercial and residential buildings around it. Inside, its rather bland, although there is a pretty tree motif on the ceiling. However,... More

This place is always crowded (and with good reason) The food is consistently good, reasonably priced and the service is super! They really turn the crowd over but you never feel rushed by them. If there is a wait you just put your name on the board and # in your party and you will be called fairly quickly. They... More

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in the whole world. Granted, I haven't tried sushi in every part of the world, so until then, Hide is my favorite in all the world! Their fish is the freshest. It is the most unique. And there is something to be said about a sushi restaurant that doesn't offer rolls, doesn't take credit... More
