    While this corner strip mall restaurant still offers flashy, over-the-top rolls for celebrity types, the real gem is the omakase, chock full of interesting fish and based on warm, well-seasoned rice. Read more

    With a new sushi chef Yoya Takahashi at the helm of the omakase counter, the level of sushi gets a major upgrade from the more roll-centric offerings on the menu (that are popular with celebrities).

    Sea urchin topped with fried yuba (tofu skin) for a little crunch, or request an omakase meal (chef’s choice) and let Takahashi know about your sea urchin fetish.

    This place is absolutely amazing. The beacon and the fox hand rolls are probably the best I've ever had. The DJ spider cut roll was also fantastic.

    The gyoza is great and their spicy tuna crispy rice is the best I've ever had!The Lourd roll and the Green Dragon roll are also great. And for dessert, I highly recommend the green tea affogatto.

    Food is freaking incredible. Matthew is one of the most helpful servers I've ever met. Try whatever he suggests and thank him afterwards.

    There's an extensive menu of cooked dishes, along with the whimsically-named rolls like Green Dragon, Asylum, and Sixteen Plus. Read more

    On the updated menu, its rolls now share the spotlight with dishes like salmon crudo and washugyu tataki (with thyme and wasabi). Miss the full roll-odex? Ask a server for the original 60-deep menu.

    Absolutely the best rolls anywhere. Can't go wrong with any of them. Ask for Toshi who is a generous and fun host.

    Great sushi, imaginative rolls named after celebs who frequent. Try the one named after Charlize Theron. To die for! It can be annoying since some go there to see and be seen.
