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.

My family and friends are all into sushi and I am not, so I'm very familiar with Chicken Teriyaki. I love everything about their dish here. The dinner comes with Miso Soup and a garden salad with the most unique tasty dressing ever! I've even ordered the dressing to take home it's so good. The chicken is always perfect and if you dip the vegetables in the teriyaki sauce... YUM!!

Before the service was outstanding .....but just recently the service started to be really bad ...the waitress don't smile like before ......the food is great but service u want to be pampered when you eat at a restuarant that is costly.......i wont recommend it just yet until the service gets better.......over all it could be better ......if they service should be with a smile and that u need to check on ur guest ........also, they prices are really high for small portions....make sure u bring about $40

ITS A SMALL CUTE INTIMATE SPOT WHERE YOU CAN CHOSE TO SIT OUTSIDE IN THE PATIO ASWELL. ITS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SUSHI SPOTS. THE SUSHI IS ALWAYS SOO DELICIOUS AND THE SERVICE IS EXCELLENT. THEY SEAT YOU RIGHT AWAY, AND THEY ARE NEVER OVER CROWDED. THE PRICES ARE REASONABLE AND THE FOOD IS PERFECT. CHECK IT OUT! I GO ATLEAST ONCE A WEEK

Although I grew up around the area, I was always hesitant to go to Ahi because it just looked cheap and ugly from the outside. A friend convinced me to go and to make sure to get the tuna tartar...and I've been hooked ever since. I go every week now ALWAYS getting the tuna tartar with the crispy rice. It is like an orgsm in your mouth. Everything else is comparable to Iroha down the street...nothing else really stands out as being bad... everything is actually quite delicious. The prices aren't that bad....The most I've ever spent is $40...which is pretty much on the low average for decent sushi. People do dress up but I've been there plenty of times in torn jeans and flip flops and gotten treated fine. Definitely worth the trip

I've been here 3 times, the first two time I wasn't impressed but it was ""whatever."" Last night I left extremely unsatisfied, knowing I personally, will never go there again. Their prices were noticeably higher than a lot of other places which would have been fine if the food was worth it but it wasn't. The portions were ridiculous and the taste didn't even make up for it. The spicy tuna in the spicy tuna salad could be perfectly described as ""tasteless mush."" The second time I went the service was terrible, at one point I had to get up to go get a server and ask for something which they of course, forgot about. Before that I had been waving and trying to get someone's attention and while it seemed all the patrons noticed me, no one working there did.
Oh, another thing: They charge for tap water. I think that about says enough.

I was born and raised in Studio City, and have tried EVERY sushi bar up and down Ventura. When I go to another Sushi bar, Ahi is the benchmark to which I compare it. It's a known fact amongst the locals that Ahi is the best, particularly when Jimmy is preparing your food. While it is slightly more expensive than other options, the quality is evident; you get what you pay for at Ahi. All in all, I'd rather eat here than Asanebo or any of the other alternatives...highly recommended
