    Located on the former Grand Canal in Historic Venice Beach CA, Hama was founded in 1979 and was one of the first "Authentic Japanese Sushi" Restaurants in The United States.

    The Hama Special Roll is awesome. Shrimp tempura, avocado, and cucumber topped with masago. Just ask, and it will be made with easy brown rice as well.

    be sure to make a rezzy, especially on a Friday and Saturday because it gets packed and there's a chance that you still have a short wait. the sushi is absolutely worth it!

    Some of the best sushi around. So much fun there! Sit at the bar and talk to people and the sushi chefs. Also, for the best service buy your chef a drink. It's customary when eating sushi.

    Been reading YELP. Most of the servers seem to be on point, considering the kind of clientele they prob have to deal with (some insane stories i've heard) at times, being in the "Service Industry".

    This sushi bar doubles as a sports bar, and features happy hour daily from 5-7pm. Most of the rolls and small dishes featured are half price, and you can snag a cheap Sapporo on tap. Read more

    I forgot how good this place is - the best sushi in West LA. Ask for Elizabeth at the sushi bar and their Green Devil roll rocks.

    Good sushi if you like american sushi. The traditional options are okay, if anything I recommend the Miso Cod. Worth the money but not exceptional.

    This sushi is by far the worst sushi I have ever had in my life. And I have eaten sushi every week of my life. I was appalled by the spicy tuna roll. It looked like puréed tuna. Awful!
