Have been there several times whenever I'm in LA and never disappointed! If you're a sashimi or sushi lover, just go! I've tried many Japanese restaurants all over the world and this is one of the few restaurants I'll recommend to others. ;)

Very traditional sushi selection. I enjoyed the spicy tuna and spider rolls. The atmosphere was pleasant and traditional and the chef is extremely fast with completing your meal. I highly recommend Komasa.

The best sushi in LA. I have been coming here for years and the quality of the food and of the service has not changed. Run by a husband and wife team along with some family members. They have the freshest fish and the best prices.

I thought the sushi here was great, and a great value! I'm pretty picky about my Japanese food, but really liked this place. Best of all, the prices are really reasonable, its fantastic value for your money. The service is also very fast. Will be back. :)

We all have our favorite places and definitely our favorite Japanese restaurants. I have a few favorite but Komasa holds the top rank as my go-to-feels-like-home-place. Beware and be there early as all great places deserves a wait. Nothing fancy here, no branches in London or Tokyo or New York. Just the one on 2nd St. Very few tables and... More

My friend and I chose this sushi restaurant based on reviews on the high quality and reasonable pricing. That's exactly what we found! This is some of the VERY BEST sushi I've ever had! The fish pieces were much creamier than I've ever experienced -I believe that's due to the freshness and the way the chef massages the fish. I... More

I selected this restaurant based on other reviews and that I saw some mentions online that this was one of the best sushi restaurants in LA.  It was very good but I hope it can't be the  best in LA.  I had the 16pc combo and all the pieces were different which was great.  I just felt some of the...

The wait was almost an hour wait and we ended up sitting at the sushi bar. I do not mind seating at the sushi bar in the restaurant; especially if there is less time to wait. When we arrived in Komasa, one of the waiters asked me for my phone number and name and said it was going to take... More

I love sushi and I have lived in Tokyo. This place measures up. Incredibly fresh, the flavors are perfect, and I just love watching the 60 year old Japanese sushi chef. This place is the real deal.

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
