Located in a shabby strip mall, need reservation otherwise "sorry" not welcomed. They only had omakase style that chef decided on your meal, everyone ate the same thing. Its roughly $50 per head. No outside sake or wine allowed. They were very strict on everything. Even the restaurant looked empty with 2-3 tables of customers, they only want to serve... More

My husband and I Ubered it on a rainy night only to find they would not seat us due to no reservations although only 2 tables were occupied. We also discovered the menu was Omakase only, where the sushi chef decides your menu. We prefer to choose our own food, thank you. So we were arranging another Ride Share and... More

If you are seeking interesting Rolls (Shin Amerika no Sushi) this is definitely NOT the place. If you want to experience authentic Sushi / Sashimi, this is the place. As I am not local, I cannot say if this is the Best Torrance Sushi Restaurant, but it must be one of the top. Located in a small Strip Mall, the... More

Made it a point to visit here on a Friday for lunch after hiking with my dog IZ. Located in a small shady looking neighborhood strip center - parking was effortless and complimentary. The sushi chef and wife were welcoming of my service pug Iz and we were seated at a booth. I was quite hungry and ordered the sushi... More

Do not let the unkempt shopping center fool you. This is a traditional sushi joint that gets straight to the point. No frills just plain good sushi. I was here on a Friday during lunch and ordered the sushi supreme. This included hot green tea, salad, miso soup, 10 pieces of sushi, California roll and desert for only $16.90. I... More

The physical appearance of this place is a little scary. It is located in a rundown 60's strip mall with a liquor store and laundra mat. The interior décor has seen its better days with the stained carpets and Formica tables, however if sushi is what you are looking for then this is the place. You need to make reservations... More

I have eaten at many sushi places from LA to New York. I ordered the Omake for $39.99. They give you so much food. The first pieces of sushi was not the best tasting, but as the chef served more dishes, I understood what he was about. Chef is a traditionalist sushi chef, he starts off with less fatty cuts...

We have eaten at Kantaro, a small, family-run restaurant, twice now and the sushi is amazingly fresh with a great variety. We had the Omakase which is the Chef's Special selection of sushi for a set price $39. So much delicious food! If you let the sushi chef know which items you would not desire, he plans accordingly. We thoroughly... More
