At this sushi place you might not find your regular California roll but all the food here is first class ! Set menu and it keeps coming with the best quality and good service. For less than 38 dollars your a gourmet lunch.

In my opinion they try to do a creation cuisine of sushi. At the end is not bad, but you will feel confused with the menu or tastings. Do not expect something more, is sushi & sashimi.

If you're looking for outrageously authentic sushi, go to SUGARFISH by sushi nozama near the Third Street Promenade. SUGARFISH follows traditional sushi-making methods, including serving the rice at a warm temperature. Prepare to wait, because the line is always out the door. Yes, the portions...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
