BEST SUSHI IN BRENTWOOD

it's not fancy, not trendy ...but hands-down the best (and most reasonably priced) sushi in Brentwood! I recommend sitting at the Sushi bar. It's a great way to venture beyond the spicy tuna roll and explore great treats like Spanish mackerel fresh from Japan, plus we always have the best time chatting with the sushi chef's!

Food is great!!!

I would ignore the review below this. Yes the service is spotty. I will be completely honest with that, but if you are honest with your frustrations they will honor them by doing what they can in terms of taking care of you. \r \r Come here for the food and casual, comfortable atmosphere. This place is not cool by all means at all, but it is cozy. Yes the Black Cod is absolutely fantastic. It's slow grilled a... view more

Could Asakuma on Wilshire and Barrington be the WORST Japanese restaurant in LA? I think Yes!

Could this be the WORST Japanese restaurant in LA? I think yes. I have been to dozens and dozens of Japanese restaurants in LA--both high end and low end. Asakuma is the worst I have eaten in LA by far. Terrible food and service. After being ignored for half of an hour while they served all of the business lunches around us, our terrible food finally arrived. Shoe leather steak for my daughter and pieces of uni... view more

please be patient, you WONT be sorry!

ok this has been my typical Asakuma experience from start to finish: (recommended to me by my japanese friends, who rave about the BLACK COD. I have found that many japanese ppl eat there, which speaks to the authenticity of the cuisine. i'd say the place is 80% regulars, plenty of which are japanese families.) Ive never gone here and waited more than 5 minutes for a table, despite them looking very busy on several ... view more

Asakuma sets the standard for Japanese cuisine-

I was introduced to Asakuma just recently by a friend. Let's just say... I've been back on my own probably a dozen times in the last 2 months. This restaurant is by far the best Japanese food in the Los Angeles area. I only wish I'd discovered it sooner (as they have been in business for close to 20 years). Their menu is versatile. It offers a wonderful variety of sushi and sashimi for true raw fish afficionados... view more

Best Miso Cod I've Had, Good Sushi, Decent Service, But SHADY BUSINESS PRACTICES

I could go on about how Asakuma should have more reviews here, how they have found a way to glaze a miso cod in a delicious way while cooking an imperfect fish to perfection, or about how their sushi is consistent and good.\r \r Instead, I feel the need to comment on a disturbing trend that me and all of my friends have noticed. I dine at Asakuma 3 or 4 times a year. Each time, miraculously, our bill is tabulated i... view more

A+ for Food and Drinks!

Not sure what the previous review is talking about, because when I went there this past weekend I was able to order my Burger Medium Rare. We had a great time and the staff was excellent, very personable and helpful. I love the place and ambiance, they did a great interior design job and it's a fun place to be!

Don't waste your time at Boulevard

You could park an aircraft carrier inside the restaurant at 730pm on a Friday night there was one other couple in the restaurant. Immediately I began to wonder about the freshness and the rotation of the food. I ordered, the KOBE Burger. The waitress asked how I would like it cooked and I said ""Medium Rare"" (Kobe needs to be cooked as close to medium-rare as possible. Kobe is a really fatty type beef but when cooke... view more
