Hamasaku is a great spot for Japanese food lovers There is the usual sushi bar as well as a fancier set-up of tables and chairs around it. The servers make an effort to keep you happy throughout your stay as well. The first food was sashimi which had a cool flavor about them (great sauces added) along with another sashimi dish which had a great amount of sour and savory flavors mixed throughout. The second food was a grouping of two salads. These weren't special as one was simply just seaweed. The third included sushi and black cod - both which were very delicious. The sushi was well-made and the black cod especially was great with it's sauces. The final part = mochi ice cream and a flour-less chocolate cake which was good With parking, you can valet park free for the first 45 mins. or so and then pay about a dollar per 30 minutes afterwards. Hamasaku is a pricey but for food lovers - it's great.

It would be a nice restaurant if it was not for the price! That's why in my opinion the food deserve a score of 1. For that price you should have much more.

no words can describe the ecstasy that is the menu at hamasaku. don't let it's location in a strip mall by the freeway fool you, this place never fails to innovate even the most classic rolls and dishes using the freshest of ingredients.

Horrible experience. Went to Hamasaku on 10/19/2013. I am in town on vacation from Dallas, TX. I made reservations to this place online two weeks in advance. I seen that this place had good reviews do I wanted to give it a try, since I am a sushi lover. Well my reservation was at 8. They did seat me and my guest on time. We ordered 3 rolls and the rock shrimp appetizer. Our EA roll came out within 5 minutes... Weird, isn't the appetizer supposed to come out first? We finished the roll in about 5-10 minutes and waited another an additional 10 minutes for the rock shrimp. Then there is where things went worse. The restaurant became more busy. And it seems like the service became poorly, more than it already was. My guest and I was out of water for 5 minutes before anyone came around for a refill. Other tables.. that came and ordered after us got their food prior to us. We sat an additional 20 minutes after we finished the rock shrimp before we called our waiter, that never came check on us the whole time we were there. He said he will check on it and came back and stated the chefs are working on it and it will be right out. Another 15 minutes passed and my guest and I were fed up. We called the manager and told her what was going on. She did take care of our bill and apologize saying she was sorry for the horrible service because they were busy. I understand they were busy.. but busy to forget about a young couple just sitting there? Looking concerned as to why we never got the rest of our order? Needless to say, when we come visit LA again we are not wasting our time coming here again.

this place is definitely not cheap but so worth it. i have yet to try a roll i didn't love and there are plenty to choose from. the service is attentive and they have a good sake selection. hamasaku is almost always crowded, so i'd recommend making a reservation.
