Really fresh sushi on westside?

  • 9
  • Share

I loved the sushi at Sushi Hara (formerly Top Cloud) in Marina del Rey and was devastated when they closed last year. They were supposed to reopen when they found a new location, but have seen nothing yet! So am looking for really fresh sushi at a fairly moderate price, but with some creative selections. Any suggestions?

  1. Try Hide Sushi near Sawtelle and Ohio. Long lines - for a good reason. If you don't want to wait, go to Asahi Ramen across the street (no sushi, but it's a great deal too).

    1. There is a (pretty recently opened) sushi place called Hara Sushi on Wilshire Blvd. just a block west of Bundy on the SE corner of Amherst and Wilshire in West LA. Don't know if it's related to the one that was in the Marina, but it's a little local place so probably is not too expensive. (We have not been here).

      1. No reason to go anywhere else other than Sushi Zo -
        9824 National Blvd
        Los Angeles, CA 90034

          The OP might want to get more familiar with Sushi Zo before going by reading related threads about this seemeingly great sushi destination. A fair amount chefs in this category have certain expectations; also, knowing a little about Keizo-san may help in navigating the counter. :)

        2. If you're looking for closer to MDR than some of the other suggestions, Sushi Karen on Washington in Culver City (west of Overland) is nice. Great albacore.

          1. if you want to stay in the marina,
            the food they serve at irori is far superior to the food that used to be served at top cloud.

            1. Fresh (excellent) sushi, moderate price & creative selections, packed from the minute it opens to closing:
              Sakura Japanese Restaurant
              4545 S Centinela Ave
              Los Angeles, CA 90066
              (310) 822-7790

              1. sushi zo definitely. just be open to his ways and he will take you to the sushi promised land.

                1. Hiko Sushi is where you need to go for fresh sushi on the westside.
