AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS!! If you haven't had sushi in your life before, or you buy your sushi from Ralph's supermarket, the quality of sushi here might strike you, but this is hands down THE WORST SUSHI I have ever eaten in Los Angeles!! I am surprised by the people that wrote positive reviews, maybe they've never had quality sushi or maybe something is 'fishy' with these reviews. Just go try Oomasa or Izaka-ya as an example, see what quality sushi is and I am not talking about Nobu or more expensive places. Aside from the the chewy Toro and blue fin tuna, that were blood red!, the chewy yellowtail! the rubbery seaweed roll and the low quality chewy rice that needed to be washed down with drinks, the SERVICE was only looking to cash in for the night. The aggressive and confrontational waitress (a lady in her 50's) greeted us with hard facts about serving only basic sushi and nothing fancy (whatever that means?). Then she maintained her rudeness throughout the night and only encouraged us to order the most expensive things. She was clearly unhappy with the amount we ordered and pointed it out to us. We had to wait about 30 mins!! while having nothing else on the table except water, before our food arrived. Here comes the tragedy. We had ordered five items, that were each around $8-9, except for the Toro that was listed as 'Market Price'. We also ordered green tea that was $4. OUR BILL CAME BACK TO US $91.00!!! THAT MEANS TWO TINY PIECES OF TORO MUST HAVE BEEN $50!!!! I am sorry but I felt completely ROBBED! I didn't bring this issue up, because I was with a date and they totally took advantage of this situation. If you like a similar quality sushi, save $100 and go to Ralph's supermarket.

What a disappointment this place was! I went there two years ago and had an expensive, but remarkable and noteworthy dinner. Tonight I had an expensive and totally horrid experience. Avoid at all costs. The hostess is so cold and almost hostile if you don't have a reservation. And if you don't understand the menu, far be it from her to be able to take a moment to describe the menu offerings to you. What a total b-*-*-*-h she was to us! And it doesn't matter what you say, SHE is correct, and it's "the owner making your dinner tonight." Despite the fact that it took FOREVER, and the food was so incredibly mediocre. Ok, some of the food was decent, but the price? Are you kidding? It was incredible! The cost! How dare this place charge such high prices! I will not go back, and neither should you. It's totally UNexpceptional, and not worth the money. We went to McDonald's afterwards... ok, that sounds tacky, but it's true! Thanks, Aregato.
