Simple menu with fresh and delicious sushi. The thing is there is no chance to book a table by phone so you need to wait inside for a while. Anyway it worths it

Tried one in downtown LA. Limited menu items, but good. Fish is fresh, rolls are good. If you are hungry and need a quick sushi roll fix, this is it. I personally prefer more variety of fish and less rice. I think it's more hype...More

Great fresh sushi- every dish in the "trust me" selection was delicious. I typically stay away from any white fish but theirs was so good and the toro hand rolls and blue crab hand rolls were awesome. The matcha green iced tea was also great....More

Oh Dearl Lord. I can't even believe this restaurant has "sizzle", for they, and they alone, tell you how and when you can eat your sushi. We aren't new to sushi and we aren't naive to sushi. We have eaten all kinds, from all kinds...More

Best sushi this side of the pacific. So fresh and tasty. Literally melts in your mouth. We all had the Trust Me where they bring out the sushi at chefs choice. Will for sure return next time in Santa Monica.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
