If you are in the area on a saturday I would recommend IMAI. $12 per person brunch buffet with a large choice of dishes and sushis to choose from: miso soup, salad, termpura, fried chicken, beef teriyaki, seafood, sushi rolls, chow mein, fried rice, salmon/albacore/tuna sushis, soft shell crabs, fruits and cakes...
Nice and friendly staff.

I usually order the salmon sashimi bowl or the spicy tuna lunch bowl. Both orders are delicious and the spicy tuna has a very generous serving! The only problem I have with this place is that during lunch time, they have only 3 waiters waiting on the entire restaurant, including any to-go orders and busing the tables as well.
I once had to wait around 15 minutes for a to-go order that I called in ahead of time. Other customers that wanted to actually eat there waited that long as well, or simply left the restaurant. (there were plenty of empty un-bussed tables)
Overall a 4/5 and not a 5/5 because of their terrible service during the lunch hours 12-2.

When it comes to sushi, I am always looking for the best in LA. My sister works right near IMAI and was constantly raving about it so finally I came to meet her for lunch a a few weeks ago. The deal is absolutely incredible. The chirashi bowl is bountiful and fresh as can be, and for only $11.80 this is the steal of the century. The yellowtail is delicate, the albacore melts in your mouth. The spicy scallop with masago is out of this world and the ahi is served specs of gold (literally). What compliments the great sushi is the even better sushi chef, Takashi, who ensures that every dining experience we have is well worth it. I drive from downtown LA just to go to lunch here and my coworkers now agree it is well worth sitting in traffic for.

I love trying places that have happy hours with food specials. So, my girlfriends and I went to Sushi and Kushi for their happy hour on a Thursday night. The sushi specials only include three rolls during happy hour (crab and avocado, salmon and avocado, and spicy tuna), but the regular menu is great. We ended up mostly ordering from the regular menu and then having some happy hour priced martinis. Overall, we were disappointed with the happy hour sushi options, but enjoyed the regular sushi. It was moderately priced. The ambiance and the martinis were great though! And service was great too!
