The food is truly fantastic, the flavors and special recipes are my favorite. I keep returning because the fish is so fresh, so buttery (melts in your mouth) delicious. The flavors are so clean. We also LOVE the appetizers... The sushi and sashimi here are excellent, with carefully selected fish, urchin, and shellfish that is properly sliced. The rice is always handled correctly -- the texture and flavor are spot on. Good quality nori. Sushi is properly formed. Sitting at the sushi bar is highly recommended here. The chef knows what he is doing. Overall: GREAT SUSHI, CHICK ATMOSPHERE, FRIENDLY SERVICE, AWESOME FOOD!!
A fancy place for some fancy sushi. This is the first restaurant I've seen which proudly displays its exact Zagat scores right when you walk in. (It scored a 26 out of 30 in case you're wondering). They've got some interesting lunch specials during the weekdays which includes one 8 piece sushi and a 8 piece California roll for $15.50. All lunch specials are served with miso soup, sunomono, and rice. My extremely hot date and I shared a cucumber wrapped spicy tuna roll and a lobster roll. Suffice to say, it was quite delicious. It wasn't mind blowing, but the sushi definitely satiated my taste palette.
We had a great dinner here recently. Parking is a little tricky, since they are right on Ventura Blvd and they do not take reservations. We walked in expecting a wait and they were able to seat us immediately - yay! I ordered The Nozawa for $42 and it was a perfect amount of food, and the fish was incredibly fresh. I love the ease and simplicity of their sushi and I will definitely be back.
