    Meh service. If you're a sushi expert, don't eat here. Some of the worst I've ever had in LA. Spend some extra $ and go down the street to sushi roku or around the corner for nobu instead.

    Great super fresh and yummy sushi. The sushi bar usually has walk in seating available. The sushi is really affordable and there are lots of specialty items. I love the shrimp toast.

    It's a little cramp during the lunch crowd. It's a small space and lots of patrons. Be sure to come early to get seats.

    Mediocrity and undeserving price are what you should expect. However the if you grow starving, the food would be divine… just like any other dish by any crap cook.

    If you dont like something they tell you to suck it. Spicy ramen had a sliver of pork and the broth tastes like burnt ball sack. Had ramen 200x better at Chabuya. Creamy shrimp were good though!
