So underwhelmed. We eat sushi every week. Walked out feeling ripped off. Taste average. Not many options for fun rolls. The chicken teriyaki was terrible! The staff were very friendly and efficient. Try a smaller sushi bar. This one lacks ambiance, choices, and taste. I...More

I just had a bento box and it was tasty. Portion size wasn't huge but it was ok. Met a friend for lunch there. I wouldn't go back but there really isn't anything wrong with the place. Server was good and didn't bother us.

This is classy Japanese food. We had a family dinner and our girls (age 10 and 8) found plenty on the menu to eat. We loved the baked crab hand rolls and I would go back just for those. They are a must have. There...More

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
