Great sushi in Temple City or around it?

i'm tired of driving west for good sushi and i really hate A float sushi in pasadena despite the praise it gets (it seems like more of a gimmick to me).

  1. I've heard that The Sushi by Las Tunas is pretty good, but I've never been.

    I would go to Kiyosuzi in Arcadia on Baldwin Ave by Duarte if you don't want to drive far.

    Yoshida in San Marino on Huntington Drive is pretty good.

      can anyone vouch for The Sushi? i always thought it was some rundown place that went out of business when i drove by O.o

        How much is Kiyosuzi? How much should I expect per head for Sushi?

        I was there today and I didn't know they don't open for lunch on Saturday and Sunday.

          Most Japanese restaurants do not open for weekend lunch, and a majority are closed on Mondays period.

          It would depend on whether you order a la carte at the sushi bar, or if you go for one of their combos at Kiyosuzi. They have some great combos that include sushi and/or sashimi, and would range in the $10-$15 range. You can add a few sushi items. If you are on a budget, you can get out of there easily for $15 to $20 a person. However, if you order at the sushi bar a la carte, then it might be more. But, it is very inexpensive.

          Also, on another note, Kiyosuzi is your run of the mill Japanese restaurant: solid and fresh sushi and sashimi. It's not top quality. If you are used to A Float, it is much better. However, if you are used to ordering things like toro, bluefin tuna, giant clam and other high end items, this is not the place to go.
