Great sushi around Hollywood & Highland that is open on Sundays?

Clare K Nov 15, 2006 08:10 PM

I like Shintaro, and have heard about Ike, but both are closed on Sundays. Any good sushi places in that area? Nothing like Geisha House or Katana please.

    I've had OK yellowtail and albacore at Kabuki, but overall it is a very mediocre sushi experience.

      There's Koji's Shabu Shabu in Hollywood and Highland that has sushi, as well as Kabuki, at Sunset/Vine complex. For some reason, I like Kabuki's seared albacore. But, of course, neither of these are "great" sushi. But definately open on Sunday and close to Hollywood/Highland

        I'm assuming you need to stay in Hollywood rather than going downtown, where there are some excellent choices that are open on Sun. (Hamakawa is the first that comes to mind)

          Good to Great - sushi can be had from ex-Matauhisa chefs at:

          Wa Sushi - open daily 6 to 12 p.m.
          1106 No. La Cienga Blvd.
          West Hollywood
          (310) 854-7285

          Closer, but I've never been but some people have enjoyed it before seeing a movie, is:

          Sushi Dan - open 12 to 11 p.m. Sunday
          8000 W. Sunset Blvd. (at Laurel Canyon) #A202
          2nd floor Virgin Record store shopping/Theater complex (underground parking)
          (323) 848-8583

            Thanks. I agree that you can still get good to great sushi on Sundays.

            Thanks again, will definitely try one of these two.

              Wa for sure, I ate there this past Sunday and it was excellent. Since they have both simple sushi/sashimi and more elaborate sauces/preparation the chefs are very good at avoiding what should be avoided on Sunday...or at least dressing it up in its Sunday best so you don't know it couldn't have been baught/caught that day (like anything ever is in modern times).

              Didn't Kabuki's open up on Vine a little while ago? I don't think they would be closed on Sunday's. Their sushi isn't the best, but it should be good enough to satisfy your fix.

                there are no good sushi places around there that will be open on sunday. you could try ita-cho on beverly west of la brea, it may be open.

                and if you don't want obvious answers, perhaps you should be asking more specific questions.

                  ita-cho is closed Sunday-Monday
                  Also, ita-cho does not serve sushi; only sashimi and other cooked small plates of fish, meats & veggies, etc.

                  I checked Azami and Sushi Ryo, they're both closed. I know from prior experience that Hirozen is too.

                    last time I drove by Sushi Ryo the new owner had finally changed the name. Jun-san is now at Izayoi.

                    there is a reason why they are closed on sunday. the fish simply isn't fresh as the fish will most likely be from thurs or fri.

                      Thanks for pointing out the obvious. Would love it if someone could make some suggestions.

                        welcome! durrr.....no "great sushi" place is open on sunday imo.

                        btw, in an attempt to be somewhat helpful, check out wa and azami....not sure if they are open but they are the only joints in the hollywood area that i've been to.
