Sparse, bright, traditional Japanese stop with specially grown rice & handcrafted ceramics.- Google
"One example is a simple "Ebi" (shrimp) nigiri."
"Although they have $20-ish lunch special / chirashi sushi, I love $80 Omakase."

The owner chef, Mr. Nagano, is really a professional. I'm always amazed how he devotes himself into cooking and prepare things for better taste and experience. He's honest and hard-working. He never cheat you in any means. Yes, as some people say, the price is not cheap. Although they have $20-ish lunch special / chirashi sushi, I love $80 Omakase. They do not use farmed fish, everything is wild caught and fresh. Most of them are air-imported from 3 different markets in Japan, Tsukiji, Kyushu, and Hokuriku area. As this is a real Japanese restaurant, they care about "seasons". You'll find different fishes / crabs in winter when you come back in summer. I was born and raised in Japan for 25 years, I'm foodie and used to be a kitchen helper in Japanese Italian years ago. I know ins and outs about Japanese food, but I often found a certain dish in Mori sushi could be better than the ones I had in Japan. One example is a simple "Ebi" (shrimp) nigiri. Mori Sushi is one of the best Japanese restaurants in greater Los Angeles area for sure. To serve real sushi is quite time consuming. Even one single piece of sushi, sometimes it require tens of hours of preparation. Mr. Nagano does everything in order. If you love sushi, this is the place to go. Definitely recommended.

My chef instructor had encouraged my peers and i way back when..Definitely not authentic Japanese cuisine, however that's what makes Mori's special. Well lit dining room, hand crafted serving dishes (by Mori himself) clean restrooms. Oh and the food very clean very refreshing. I would not suggest going strictly for sushi rolls and sashimi, however Mori's omakase was excellent delivering Japanese flavors with some French technique. I will definitely go back.

On November 7, 2014 Chef Taketoshi Azumi prepared for us an exquisite meal of selected appetizers, soup (matsutake because of the approach of winter), and his suggested sushi, followed by a light dessert. All dishes were served on striking pottery specially made for the restaurant. The quality of the cuisine and selection was outstanding, perhaps the best Japanese meal we have had outside Japan. The price was reasonable for this level of quality. Please note that the restaurant is omakase style, meaning that the menu is suggested by the chef, not selected by the patron. Entrust your meal to Chef Azumi. You will not be disappointed.

This place is beyond snobby, I have not encountered such blatant racism since the 60s. We were three well dressed mature caucasians. We asked to sit at the sushi bar. There were three of there eight seats left. We were told that there was no room for us at the bar and they immediately came out and put a reserved sign at one of the places. We were seated at a table and went on to order from there very over priced menu. When the food did come there was so little of it I could not believe what we were looking at for the prices. We then asked for some wasabi and were told that the chef said that we could not have any, when we insisted the chef himself came out and explained that the correct amount of it was already in the art pieces that he had prepared for us and that it would be a desecration of his work to add more. When we insisted on more he flat out refused to give us any. The decor is less than impressive with there varnished plywood tables and the sewer pipe that runs right through the food prep area. The atmosphere was non existent unless you consider snobby dull and boring to be atmosphere.

A post script to Greggs review. I was one of the three in his party ( his birthday party by the way) We were all close friends and in a very good mood when we got there. Mori's changed all that. By the way Mr. reserved sign never showed up.We recovered the evening by going to a great sushi house in Westwood.
