Short wait, so we grabbed a drink nearby and they texted us when ready. Even a "hey, almost time" text. Not a bad bite in the place. Terrific handrolls. These sushi snobs loved everything. Stick with the junmai daigonjo sake :)

This restaurant was highly recommended to me by a lot of my friends. I had such an incredible experience and will definitely return whenever I am back in LA. We went a little late than normal for lunch so the wait was only 15 mins. The restaurant is really small so I would recommend going early as I am sure... More

Real talk: I know nothing about sushi. I come from upstate New York where much of the sushi includes bacon and buff chick sauce. Until today, I really didn't think I liked sushi very much. Sugarfish is my kind of sushi. Just incredibly fresh, clean, lightly sauced, fish. I was also seated quickly and had super friendly service. Loved it!

Did a Google search for best sushi in LA and this was one of the ones that popped up, tried calling for reso but they didn't take any so we figured this would be a good spot to go to. The first night we went it was an hour and a half wait so we went across the street to... More

We were in the area, a friend recommended. We got there around 6:30 pm. There was a 45 - 1 hour wait. No reservations: 1st come, 1st serve. Well, an hour and 1/2 later, we were finally seated. The management apologized for our wait. The food was actually better than expected, except for the value. A little pricey for what... More

Simple plan for the restaurant. A modern-ish take on the Omakase of traditional sushi places. We both went with the Trust Me, added a plate of Unagi and had some Nigori sake to go along with it. Quite the fantastic meal! Sushi was all well prepared and super fresh. The rice was a bit less sticky- the rolls sometimes fell... More

Not the best. Not the worst. Just all ok. It all feels a little trendy and that means, in my experience, that you don't get really exciting fish options. It feels basic. The fish was fresh and the service was impeccable. I was just hoping for a little more variety than the usual (salmon, tuna & yellowtail). I understand that... More

The quality of fish was fine, but the presentation was austere, and the temperature of the sushi rice was overly warm to the point of being straight out of the rice cooker! What? The old-school traditional sushi chefs in Japan would not even let women prepare nigiri as they (I don't agree) said the temperature of women's hands is too... More

I am not a sushi fan so I have little experience. Anyway this is the best sushi I ever had (out of 100 samples). This restaurant is well known for its quality in town.

If you want the best, cleanest and freshest sushi ever, visit this place! Everything is amazing and the homemade soy sauce is incredible!
