It doesn't matter what you order, it's delicious. Try and sit outside and watch the world go by on Ocean Avenue.

It’s one of my favorite Sushi places in LA. High quality food, and service. Try their baked lobster rolls, it’s one of their signature rolls, and one of my favorites.

A very nice place with excellent service. The food was good but the maki rolls was a little loose. Try the premium sake sampler - a good choice. We was lucky to get a table - book earlier on the day
