Seeking amazing sushi near the Arclight Cinema
I'm also looking for a sushi restaurant with excellent fish near the Arclight Cinema. Any suggestions?
Kabuki is across the street, but I would never call it "amazing sushi." Cheap, adequate, and good for big parties are how I would describe it. There's been a sign for a new sushi "concept" restaurant in the Arclight complex posted for several months, but I haven't seen any progress on the building.
Lots of people recommend Sushi Ike which is closeby, maybe do a search for that and read the reviews. I haven't been there yet, but I hope to soon.
Atch-Kotch on Fountain is really a ramen place but they have sushi. Hungry Cat doesn't have sushi but does generally have one or two good raw seafood things, better than lots of so-so sushi/sashimi. But the best nearby sushi is at Sushi Ike.
sushi ike is located in the minimall on the corner of hollywood and gower. be prepared for a wait (with no waiting area - you're out on the sidewalk of the minimall) if you go during popular dining hours.
good stuff there - make sure to get the grilled octupus.
I think you're in for disappointment. There is no amazing sushi near the Arclight. But Sushi Ike is pretty good, and it's only a mile or two away.
