hands down my favorite place for sushi. I could eat here everyday if there wasnt a risk of mercury poisoning. updating based on a few past experiences: the wait time can be ridic.
Best Ramen! I love the spicy chicken ramen and the spicy mayo shrimp! They have a good menu selection that is reasonably priced!
Small restaurant that does not take reservations. Excellent sushi with great service. Clean restaurant.
Best Ramen in this areaI love the Jinya Tonkotsu Black with Pork and the Jinya Chicken ramen and the pork bun.
Been coming to Midori Sushi for over 15 years. Great service, awesome staff, oh all you can eat sushi is always a win for me!!!
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.
Food - 4/5 stars. It was very tasty and I absolutely loved the jalapeno poppers. Service - 2/5 stars. I sat at the booth and could not understand if the sushi chefs were supposed to wait on me, because the waitress only came once, to give me my check. Overall, I would come here again!
They have 3 choices for omakase that ranges from $85-$200. The most expensive one fells like more kaiseki than sushi. I tried the $85 omakase and ordered a few more from their specialty menu. Food is fantastic but nothing special. For walk-ins, the best time to come in for dinner is around 9pm.
No matter how crowded the parking lot is, there always seems to be one or two tables left for my family to visit, even on Friday nights -- yet I've never seen it anywhere close to empty. It's like a magic trick. The food is equally magical, with a huge selection of rolls and a charmingly apologetic note on the menu about pictures showing two "skewers" of each type even though each order is only one "skewer". This is my go-to sushi place, just noisy enough to be fun without being annoying, and with consistently good service and food. And for some reason, the miso soup always tastes better here than anywhere else...
Tetsu and his master chefs are professional, authentic and creative beyond imagination!Once you experience the food and service at Asanebo, you will be ruined for life. :)Golden eyed snapper and Spiny lobster sashimi are just two of the most exquisite fish you will ever taste
