    The Octopus Chef Special is delicious and won't break the bank. 3 types of sashimi, 4 pieces of nigiri, a hand roll, and a roe bowl!

    LA [Eat] Perfect for a dinner out with friends. Reverse happy hour (Sun-Thurs starting at 9) offers many of their most popular sushi rolls and drinks for super cheap! Love the $3 cocktails.

    It's close to my loft so it's convenient. I enjoy the reverse happy hour cuz I'm a cheap skate. I'm not racist but it's not Japanese chef but Koreans. And music is blasting in ur head at all times.

    The menu looks better than the actual food. Very disappointing that the Chef's choice of sashimi goes with two pieces of fake crab. Better, go a little bit norther to Little Tokyo, on 2nd and Central

    Excellent lunch special, good portion for good price. Tuna rolls are fine, but nothing special. Good for a large group.

    A former fav in downtown LA. But went there this week. The food was cold, it tasted like it had been prepared an hour earlier and was just sitting around, and I spent the next 24 hours sick as a dog

    To be quite honest, the service is awful, food tastes below average and we had to wait 10 minutes to sit at an already empty bar. I don't know how this place survives in with Little Tokyo so close by.

    The Sushi was overdressed and over sauced but the fish itself was fine. You just had to remove the big hunks of wasabi and blobs of sriracha from where they did not belong.

    The music at dinner time is hardcore techno, they say they can't change it. It is so not fitting to any meal.
