I've been eating here for 20 years and have never been disappointed. You get the best quality sushi possible and the portions (sushi or sashimi combo" ) are generous. You cant go wrong here

Always plan to wait at least 30 mins to be seated. Even the parking lot can be a challenge The sushi lunch special is excellent value

The food is authentic Japanese, prepared by Japanese chefs. The range is great, fresh and well made, but its not cheap for what it is. There are set menu or a la carte. its with a try.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
