Very nice restaurant close to several hotels. I was at the Hilton and is just 4 blocks away. Nice ambiance. Always full, so you need a reservation. Sushi is correct and the Hawaiian style steak is really the star.

As far as I know, they don't take reservations. I always go mid to late afternoon, even on Mondays. They are jammed but worth the wait. I'm in LA all the time and this is my favorite restaurant. Especially the burgers... More
