Any good sushi place around Beverly Center for quick lunch?

It's very hard to find any decent sushi for lunch around Beverly Center. I love Famima on Sunset, but little too far, and their sushi isn't that good. ( I think they get it from Sushi Boy... Sometimes they seem kinda old too...) Any suggestions on sushi for quick grabs around this area?

    1. Sushi Roku is right there, too, on 3rd Street. Not the greatest, but not bad.

      1. i can't vouch for it, but i thought i'd mention it: there's a sushi mac in the shopping center on the southeast corner of la cienega and third. it's kind of fast-food sushi, which is potentially horrific, but i don't really know, as i've never been.

        in the same shopping center is Mishima, which isn't all sushi, but they have some combos of noodles and rolls, etc.

          actually, Sushi Mac is not too bad, IF you know what you're in for. It is fast food sushi, but not like something you'd get at the local mall food court. You sit at the bar, and everything--yes, every plate--is $2.50. Lots of fake crab and spicy tuna type things, but I've definitely had worse. Drinks are self serve. And it's FAST. Cash only, but there is an ATM in the restaurant. If you have a limited budget, or are in a hurry, or just want to eat copious amounts of sushi without spending over $15, this is an OK alternative.

        2. Also, Kado is now open over in Farmer's Market above the Sur La Table. Haven't been yet, though.

          1. there's a place on the corner of beverly and croft, just a few blocks east of beverly center which is pretty good for average style sushi. their specials are always good and it gets crowded so there is good turnover. I think it is called sushi cafe but I am not sure on that.
