What can I say? The sushi was yummy, the service was very good and the decor was LA modern. The rolls seemed priced high, but they weren't when I realized that one roll was huge and was enough for a meal.

Outstanding freshness and presentation. The sushi is probably the best I've had anywhere. Such a great variety. We had sashimi, tiger roll, California roll, crab roll and topped it off with a chardonnay wine. Highly recommend!

The service was good (except the fact that we were not given the bowl for sauce), but we really didn't like food. First, dinner combo: the positive thing is that it was a really big portion of rice, meat, some vegetables, 2 california rolls and deep fried chicken. However the meat was prepared as medium raw - I don't know... More

Had a not so good 1st time visit here and the 2nd wasn't as good either. 1st visit the beef was tough like rubber, they gave us a new one but it was still the same. 2nd visit, me and my party weren't so good the following day. Gave the place a second chance but was still disappointed. Won't recommend... More

Finally! Reasonably priced, good sushi with other food variety for non-sushi eaters! The Lychee flavored hot sake was great - and the tempura banana was divine (and shareable). We've been trying Sushi in this area for the past 5 years and this is definitely our new goto when we are in Burbank. Parking is across the street (and only $5)... More

We REALLY like sushi, but where we're from, we're used to all-you-can-eat sushi, so we were really unsure if were going to like the a la carte dining style that they generally have here or, more specifically, the prices. We went here for lunch, and they have really great lunch dine-in specials. We had 4 octopus sushi, 2 tuna sushi,... More

This was our first visit here and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The rolls we ordered were all delicious! We had a fabulous bottle of wine and I wish I could remember which one it was. Great food, great service and I loved the ambiance! We will be back when in LA!

Great place and friendly service. From local hotels, it's an easy (and welcomed ) walk. Be aware, sushimi is a 7 piece serving, but the Saba is AWESOME! You need to try the monk fish liver too (imho). This place is great solo and would easily service a large party (probably need to call first). I'll be back for sure!... More
