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 it better in sugarfish and with this i ve said all!
But the most appalling part was the service. They are simply rude! I was served by a middle aged japanese waitress who barely spoke english and who basically threw the plates at me on the table, hurrying with the check while I was still eating. A waste of time and money.

Moderately priced, but excellent, sushi. Always Chef's Choice at the sushi bar.

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

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