Best Sushi in LA - very traditional & authentic Japanese sushi

I am addicted to this place - the fish is so fresh and the rice is really special. Never had anything like it anywhere else, and I goto a lot of sushi places in the US and internationally. It is very traditional, so no californial rolls - and the chef likes to serve you what he's picked out - but it's worth it. He always knows what I want and like - and after you get to know him, he's a treat to watch and converse wi... view more

Best Sushi Ever

I hate to give this secret away - but this is my favorite restaurant, and I want to share the love. It's traditional Japanese sushi and sashimi (there's no menu and no california rolls) and the food is really really good. It's primarily just sushi, and wonderful seafood salads, but also great wine and Italian desserts - even an eggplant parm! The owner is a master sushi chef and each dish he makes is a work of art & ... view more

Perfect for the sushi-maniac

During my lifetime, I have had the opportunity to enjoy sushi at various places; from kaiten-zushi restaurants to ""special occasion"" sushi restaurants in Japan & LA. And I have to say, Shibucho is one of the best I have had. Good fish on not-too-vinegary rice packed into a nice bite-size piece. And to top it off, he has an amazing wine list to pair with his sushi. You don't see too many sushi retaurants with Fr... view more

bad business

The previous comment was made by someone affiliated with the restaurant. They also made an unnecessary and untruthful comment bashing Sasabune... not great business practice guys...

Rude suhi chef.

I hate the restaurant. The sushi chef was very rude! I guess the sushi chef likes only rich people and got the impression that he dosn't like Japanese girls who married to non-Japanese guys. I went there for by birthday since my husband picked the restaurant. He read that the restaurant serves fois gras, so I asked the chef that if they really serves fois gras. He told me that their fois gras dish costs $200 and... view more

best sushi in los angeles

Absolutely fantastic. Worth every penny. Worth the drive. The chef was amazing and every piece of fish was better than the last. Small, intimate setting, very authentic, great atmosphere. definitely a hidden gem.

Was the sushi which I ate till now really sushi?\r The sushi of this restaurant thinks that a fish and the balance of the rice are perfect.\r Inside the restaurant, interior had the romance tick which returned to Japan of the good old days, and the surprising wine which was correct to sushi waited.

Amazing Sushi & Wine

If you are seeking the traditional sushi (No California roll, no spicy tuna....) You should go to SHIBUCHO. They don't have menu but the chef is very professional so you can trust him. (Always the chef special is best but tell them your budget and dislike fish first) Everything is so fresh.... toro,sweet shrimp,squid,awabi,tai, especially I like sea urchin it's melted in your mouth. Also he has a talent of vintage ... view more

Not authentic, limited selection.

I entered this small restaurant expecting some old school sushi, but all I got was bunch of posers. The waiter greeted us by saying they didn't have california rolls or spicy tuna, only traditional sushi. I said fine, you can't get more traditional than my taste. I sat down and asked for menu. She said there was none. I asked for sake list but there was none. Only sake was Onigoroshi, which is my favorite. So I order... view more

Best sushi ever!

I've travelled around the world and most recently lived in the Far East. Therefore, I have probably sampled most of the reknown sushi establishments around the globe. Kudo-san took amazing care of us (a regular did put a note in to give him the heads up). The fish is as fresh as they get and only the best parts get served. This gastronmic experience was exactly what our evening had called for. We were truly in awe ... view more
