One of the best sushis I ever had, prices are good value. Service is good, portions are big. Haven't eaten something which I don't like. Was well frequented by locals.

Great place if you love sushi but got no money like me!! Can't complain about the quality in a place where sushi starts at $1.50 a plate. :)

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
