If you want a quick and easy place to order out (since they have no seats), then this is the place. Prices are very cheap IMO for the quality that you get. I think only once I've had the rice that's too dry, but on the several 50 or so times, it's been very consistent. They only have a few... More

I have known about Sakae Sushi since I was a kid. It's a family owned business that only does counter orders of take-out sushi. For large orders, you gotta call ahead. The sushi is always ready and it's the best. My family always ordered sushi from Sakae. They have been in business in the same store for over 60 years.

Sakae Sushi (sah-kah-ee zoo-shee) is a local South Bay institution--- been around 50+ years--- a place that seems quirky if your not familiar with such places, but it's a "Go-To" place for to-go sushi in the traditional style. The menu is limited, it's exclusively to-go (no space to eat there), parking is on the street and in a small back... More

How do I justify my claim? Sakai Sushi in Gardena had been in business for over 50 years and they always prepared the sushi in the same manner passed on from generation to the next. Starting with the selection of best Japanese rice and cooking it the old fashion way. The other ingredients were methodically prepared and rolled together to... More

Been getting sushi here all my life! My favorite sushi is here! Wonderful! Yummy! Selection is limited, but it's the best tasting I've ever found. Pricing is great too! Go here. Take out only.

Sushi by the piece. Mom & pops, traditional, super Japanese. Simple & delish. CA roll - rice very flavorful, fresh avocado, hint of lime, fresh shrimp - da bomb!

I've been going here for years & was just there last week. Their California Roll is soooooooo good! Big pieces and is always always fresh. Super small place on Denker, pick up only but so worth the trip. They only make 6 different types of sushi but they definitely put their all into those 6. It's just too delicious to... More

If I am rating the right Sushi place I took my wife after hanging out in Redondo Beach thift shops, this place is great. I spend a lot of money but it was work it. Sitting at the bar and eating sushi from a roto belt with endless dishes. Great place good music and nice people. Good place to entertain.
