When I lived in Burbank I would stop here at least once a week.  It got to the point where the cooks and owner recognized me and they were always welcoming.  The restaurant is located in a shopping center, so there's plenty of parking.  The ingredients were fresh and the prices were on par with other sushi restaurants.  After every...

I've been going to kuru kuru for years and it has always been very consistent. It's nothing fancy but you can get very fresh fish and the staff is very friendly! They have o toro most nights as well as a few exotics each night. If you want something not seen on the menu and you describe it, they will... More

This is a relatively small sushi place in Burbank. What is nice is that they offer more than just sushi rolls. The individual sushi pieces are generally good and reasonably priced. Salmon sashimi and salmon sushi in particular are very good. There is also ample parking in front.

We love going here. They have a nice variety of dishes, especially their combo's. All the food tastes good (unlike more expensive places I've been to). Also fast service so you can go on your lunch break. Great location from the studios and next to CVS if you need some last minute thing. Their "hot & spicy chicken" is one... More

One of the best Japanese restaurants I've been to in Burbank. I recommend the cucumber roles. Those are my favorite with green mustard. If you are a seafood lovie, check this place out. Though the area is small, you might have to wait.

We came here for Zushi based on the reivews and were not disappointed. You know its going to be good when its a hole in the wall place and there is a line of 10 people in front of you on a Sunday night. We loved our rolls and the service was great. We will revisit if we are ever... More

This place doesn't look like much, but it offers fantastic sushi! The prices are VERY reasonable and the sushi is all very well made. My only advice is if you can help it, you should sit at the chef's bar because the service from the wait-staff is pretty slow. Last time we went there it took us a very long... More
