Worse sushi I ever ate!!

I've never returned sushi before... which is the reason I couldn't bring myself to doing so yesterday. But in retrospect, that is exactly what I should have done. Not a single fish item was good. We started with miso soup, which was below average, and seaweed salad, which was pretty good actually. But when the sushi came... let's just say that I nearly had to spit-out the albacore--rough and dry and chewy. We al... view more

New Decor but miss old owners

My husband and I are moving to Atlanta, so we decided to visit Azami for one last Hoorah. Immediately noticed new decor and was excited until we walked in and didn't see the girls. The waitress assured us that although Nikki is gone, they are still using the same fishmonger. My husband and I looked at the menu and noticed a lot of changes. 1. None of the cool appetizers that Nikki and her partner created 2. spec... view more

New Owners, Still Good Sushi

Yes indeed there are new owners at Azami, and even though ownership has changed hands, the sushi is still delicious and the service is still lovely. Hamachi, Kanpachi and Tori were all fresh and delicious, and we really enjoyed a scallop dish that the sushi chef sent over on the house. I'll miss the lovely ladies that ran the old Azami and I am very curious as to why they sold the restaurant, but Azami will still r... view more

Azami has changed hands...beware!

The Azami of yesteryear was a hidden gem of a sushi restaurant run by two lovely lady sushi chefs. It has now changed ownership and while it may look a little fancier, the food is not to be taken seriously. \r Steak with 'the perfect pear sauce'? Calamari with chipotle vinaigrette? Citrus marinated 'ceviche' which is actually only marinated in rice wine vinegar? Albacore carpaccio with fresh thyme? (thyme's no... view more

Just Ok sushi but friendly staffs

I dragged my bf to this place because of all the great reviews so I was really disappointed finding that it didn't live up to their hype. We ordered 2 omakase sushi menus but we enjoyed the appetizers that came with it more than the sushis. The place is different since the sushi chefs are women but overall there's nothing special about this hole-in-a wall place. We wont be back since we've had better sushis somepl... view more

Great place for Sushi

This place is a must go for all sushi lovers. When I first went there, I was astonished that the chefs were women. This was, and still is the only sushi place that I know that the itamae are women. But don't be discouraged, because they are fantastic. I highly encourage you to order the omakase, it is unbelievable and quite an experience. SInce they are the ones that will dictate on what you eat, they will choos... view more

Outstanding Sushi Experience

Passed by Azami a million times thinking that it just looked like another hole in the wall Melrose place. I could kick myself, as my recent meal at Azami was the single best sushi experience I've had in Los Angeles. The sashimi was excellent, the service was friendly and professional, and the Omakase menu (about 10-12 courses) was only $60 per person. I've paid double (even triple) for sushi of much lower quality.\r ... view more

Excellent food, polite wait staff

This place was awesome! Amazing food...we had the Agedashi, seared tuna salad and some basic rolls, but the one roll that made us swoon was the lobster roll specially created by one of the owners. She came over to the table saying that it was her creation and it truly was delicious. I also told her that after I came home I was going to give her restaurant 5 stars and she immediately stopped what she was doing back... view more

The Best Sushi in Los Angeles

I love, love, love Azami. For the best experience, sit at the bar and order omakase. Everyone here is so friendly and the food is unbelievable. I used to be a Katsuya fan before their service went downhill, but after finding Azami, I'll never go anywhere else. From the moment you make your reservation, until you are walking out the door, the service is excellent. After only one trip, I was a ""regular""- the next ti... view more
