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.

            Sorry, I have to correct myself: Sushi Ike is only about six blocks from Arclight.

              I recently had dinner at Moon Sushi, located right on the northeast corner of Santa Monica and Highland. Unluckily located next to the adult book store.

              Sushi is pretty decent, but they have very delicious creative rolls. Now, I'm not one of those crazy roll people, but I have to admit these were good. Can't remember the names of the ones I had but I enjoyed all 7 of the ones we ordered. .

                So hard to say what's "near" anything in LA.
                Here's what comes to mind that's "not too far."

                  Have an early dinner at Ike and then go to the Arclight -- that's what we do (or make reservations if they take them).
