    This is our go to late night spot. They have the best Japanese scallop and live scallop that I've ever tried. Service is fast and friendly, too!

    The freshest fish! Also has a great sake list. Get here before 6 or be ready to wait a while. They do take reservations now.

    Definitely order the omakase. You will get an education on Japan along with some of the best sushi you've ever had.

    King Crab w/ shaved black truffle. Sweet shrimp. Uni. Waygu Carpaccio. Geoduck sashimi.

    Chef's choice sashimi platter is well worth it. Freshest sushi this side of the Tsukiji market.

    Winning strip mall sushi close to the airport. Crowded during rush periods. A volume business. Worth it.

    Peter knows everything about everything. If he's your waiter, praise Jesus.

    Get the chirashi! Best deal on the menu. The sushi is really good, but everything else is mediocre, except for the ramen.

    Sarah · August 13, 2013

    Come after 10pm to get their $10 Tonkotsu ramen!

    What the crap... my hamachi (yellowtail) sushi had a bone in it. Pretty bad sign for a sushi place. Might not come back...

    The PK 3 Seared Toro with Truffle Oil hand roll was one of the tastiest and most unique sushi dishes I've ever had. SO tasty.

  • Chef Rawk (.

    Call a week ahead and ask "Peter" to prepare a prefix menu that'll make you feel like you're eating in Japan. This is THE MOST traditionally legit sushi in Los Angeles. Shark heart, score.

    Vegetarians can have veggie sushi n tempura or tofu salad.

    Prince jain · March 21, 2013
  • Calvin T.

    The fried squid on the izakaya menu pairs well with the Asahi Black. The shoyu ramen pairs well with your taste buds.

    Try the Jikasei Zaru Dofu - ざる豆腐のビジュアルがすごいな。I'm relax by eating japanese food.

    The creamy crab croquette is absolutely delicious!

    Vicky Iskandar · December 26, 2012

    Try the special Gravy ramen. It's actually very light (not oily) an made entirely of vegetables. It's a quite different and rather delicious change of pace from traditional style ramen.

    Scotty Scott · December 9, 2012
  • Hai T.

    Love this place. Wife and I always gets Omakase and we've never been disappointed by anything we've had there. A couple must have is the Super Toro seared with Truffle & the Uni Half shelled Oyster

    Don't order the House Sake. Go for the Premium one.

    The regular, no-frills Albacore sashimi is 'buttery' and practically melts in your mouth. Served on ponzu.

    The Spicy Tuna Tacos (actually tostaditas) are yummy and loaded w/ generous scoops of spicy tuna.

    Apparently you need a reservation for one of the 14 open tables. Be prepared to wait for no reason.
