August 31, 2019 Kandra Bartel

Reviews on Japanese food in Los Angeles, California, United States. Having appeared in virtually countless TV and movie productions over the years, so many sites throughout Los Angeles are ingrained in our collective psyche - from the glamour of Hollywood and the palm tree-lined streets of Beverly Hills to the skyscrapers of downtown and the gorgeous coastline. Visiting for oneself, you’ll experience how Los Angeles feels much like a large collection of small towns connected across miles of wide boulevards and freeways. This city has a little bit of everything for everyone.

$50 for lunch for two and 2 non-alcoholic beverages? If you want to charge that much you better buy better tuna than the one that was served - and left uneaten.Service was friendly and the other types of fish were fresh.But we're not coming back.

One of the best reasons to come DTLA. We scored a table quickly and enjoyed our meal, cannot say enough about the freshness and presentation. Sugarfish is the draw in this area and we can always rely on great fresh sushi. Trust me - we are coming back!

had delicious tonkatsu ramen! loved that they also have a vegan version. My only issue was having to order by ipad outside before you come in. It was fine for us but very confusing for our older parents, whom were with us. Otherwise, very delicious, quick and attentive servers.

As so many have noted, the food is both exquisite in taste and presentation. Several of the courses ranked among the best I have ever had. We also were very fortunate in that our dinner partners procured our reservation on the first try! I felt that the sake pairings weren't worth the price. They did not seem to accent the dishes the way a good wine pairing can -- though to be fair, I am not all that familiar with sake so perhaps it is my lack of experience. I also felt that the sitting should either be about a half hour longer or two dishes shorter -- we felt a bit rushed at the end.But in the end, the ambiance, service, food and presentation far outweighed the minor complaints and the experience was very much worth it.
