Homma's is tucked into an alley with a really small hanging sign on the street as the only obvious indicator to passers-by of its location. If you can find it, you'll won't mind at all. The sushi is fresh and delicious. The brown rice is a wonderful change from the typical sushi fare.
The atmosphere is simple to say the least, but what they're saving on decor is definitely passed along by keeping the prices low.
I highly recommend it.
Homma's Brown Rice Sushi has great fish that is really fresh and the brown rice adds a lovely flavor and texture to the sushi dishes. Because there are only two employees, filling large orders can take a while. Don't go for the atmosphere, just the food.
A unique twist that works because it is done sooo well at Brown rice. In a south bay area plagued with bizarre mayonnaise rolls and what not, Brown rice manages to deliver a menu that is clearly trendy but so good as to appeal to traditionalists. They have the formula down: spend less on the decor, more on the fish. (try the beautifully presented Chirashi-Don) Funny how often the best foods are served at back-alley shacks on plastic tables and chairs. That's brown rice. Very fresh fish, very simple atmosphere, and good prices. Healthy to boot!

This is sorta a ""hole in the wall"" restaurant, which can sometimes be the best kinds! The sushi is fresh and delicious, tastes a bit creamier because of the brown rice. They always have new specials which are outstanding. It's not the prettiest decor, but it's nice for a quick bite and the good food.
