If you ever want to have one of the best sushi in West Los Angeles, go to K-Zo in Culver City. The owners are hands on, the owner-chef does the sushi/sashimi himself. The waitstaff are friendly and attentive... and food is so fresh and delicious!...More

We've been there twice and will be back again. Although K-Zo has a full sushi menu, they have plenty of other choices. Everything we've had was very good.

Some business associates brought us here because they had been here several times. They knew the menu and ordered for us. All was fantastic! My favorite was "spicy tuna on crispy rice" - WOW! I'll definitely go back.
