    Nice selection of very tasty sushi pieces and rolls. Eel as chef's special was a grown for the menu.

    It wounds my soul to watch people soak their sushi in soy sauce here. Seriously, you don't need it. The fish is so flavorful and fresh, it's a crime to cover it up.

    Some of the best sushi I've ever had. If you sit at the bar, the waiter instructs you on how to eat each piece for maximum flavor.

    Is this the best sushi you'll have in LA? No. Is this as good as a full sushi meal can possibly be for $30? Probably. Albacore is the move

    If you want overpriced "american sushi with shitload of ponzu sauce", good for you. If you want authentic sushi go elsewhere.

    The fish today was extremely cold. I can understand the health protection, but for the price of a standard menu these things should not happen...

    The best sushi. Nothing more, nothing less. Extra recommendation for paying proper wages in the US, and not allowing tips.

    This downtown location always seems to struggle compared to the others, but the fish was just as good, and let's be real, nobody is going to Sugarfish for their customer service

    Honestly, the unagi was the best. The tuna sashimi second. Their policy of no outside food is super strict. Wouldn't let us celebrate a birthday with a tiny cake and the restaurant wasn't even busy.

    They no longer support the Sugarfish app. You earn points and rewards by filling out a card when your bill arrives, and they manually track for you.

    Wait is long, but the food is fast -- seated to check in less than 45 minutes. Rice is very sweet and a little too tangy. Fish melts in your mouth.

    the sushi rice is warm so don't spend eternity taking the perfect pictures. Your rice would have cooled down by then and be lame

    Large scallops & salmon sushi are my favorites, with the blue crab hand roll coming in a close second. If you're hungry & it's a good daily special, then "The Nozawa" is usually the better deal.

    Simple menu to navigate. Sushi, rolls and sashimi are pretty much all there is. Excellent quality, housemade ponzu and soy, rice melts in your mouth. No dessert. The wait is about 45-60 mins.

    Unlike most sushi spots, there are no chefs in sight. Put your trust in chef Nozawa’s simplified menu of top-quality fish, consistently fresh across all eight local outposts.

    The rice is seasoned perfectly and the fish, hand-selected by Nozawa, might be as good could be at this price point. With many locations, it's L.A.'s patented sushi concept with remarkable quality.

    This is hands-down the best sushi I have ever had. Munch down the hand rolls as soon as you get them, the yellowtail is ORGASMIC and I'm actually convinced there isn't a bad dish on the menu.

    It's hard to enjoy a meal here when the chef's orders are to eat the food in a timely fashion, the waiters remind you not to add soy sauce to some fish items, and the service is rushed.
