    What a great sushi spot! Amazing happy hour even tho the regular prices are good too! I love how they took an old bank and turned it into a beautiful restaurant!

    Both rolls I tried were DELICIOUS (crunch/showtime ROLL.) What I didnt like was the service. The server mustve been new & also didnt speak up. I plan on going back bc the sushi makes up for it.

    Good quality sashimi and its practically FREE. This place has great sashimi at surprising price. Did I mention it this place is almost free!

    I've seen cleaner bathrooms at the gas station!! Yet there's a list up that employees sign off on once they clean it. Stainless steel walls/doors,floors, & toilet bowl were filthy!!!!

    Reservation was for regular dining, sat us at a teppanyaki table and forced half of our party to order teppan yaki despite having 2 children, first experience here was great, second not so much.

    Best part is...manager tried to accuse us of being a family he "remembers reserving a teppanyaki table and always to order from the regular menu."

    Really good sushi, perfect if the dining hall in UCLA is closed and you want eat something different! Doesn't cost too much!Awesome!

    Price is really reasonable as you can get baked lobster for 7 bucks?! The salt is something you can control with a low sodium soy sauce :)

    Recently reopened after a full fumigation. Be sure to ask for extra wasabi if you order the Spicy Cockroach Rolls.

    Salmon teriyaki is great! Huge portion, rice, miso soup, edamame, salad, and fruit for just $10.

    Did you know the Yamato building was originally the first men's dorm at UCLA? Check out the UCLA Volunteer Center, which started WOMP right here!

    The sushi at the Safeway is better. The tempura vegetables were dripping with grease. Even the cocktail sucked. The bowl of rice was the best part of the meal.

    Filthy wine cellar floor! I guess they're consistent with not cleaning because all of the floors/walls/stairs are visibly dirty!

    Krab is in almost every roll. Be wary, it's made of ground fish remnants :/
  • Jonathan A.
    Ramen was terrible and un edible. The only things somewhat decent was one of the shrimp tempura and spicy tuna on top roll...

    The sushi here is terrible. Spicy yellowtail wasn't spicy, eel avocado roll came without eel sauce. Better off getting sushi from the grocery store.
