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.
Small restaurant that does not take reservations. Excellent sushi with great service. Clean restaurant.
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.
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
2nd time here, one for regular dinner and one for my birthday. We sat 10 at our table and it was crowded. Our cook was young and very athletic. He was great with names and the kids. FoodFried Rice- B. It was better at Benihana's. Filet Mignon- A+. Tender, tender tender. Chicken- C- very dry. Shrimp- C- small, stringy. Veggies- B. they mash them all together unlike Benihana's. We like them separated. Service- A- It was very good and the waiters were very courteous and on top of things. Owner- He was great with the kids and gave the kids each a toy.
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.
the food was good but it was expensive. the service was okay.
