Best sushi in Covina AND LA for the most part. Chef Kazu has been a dreamboat in this part of town. He was actually trained by master Nobu himself. I don't understand where the non fresh seafood rant comes from because I know that he goes to downtown and picks out the freshest seafood in site. I have loved going here for the past few years and I will continue. The toro is melt in your mouth delicious, and the omakase is OMG to die for. I would highly recommend this to any sushi lover. you will not be disappointed. I promise.
