There really is no "excellent" sushi in Westwood.
Maybe try Ami or Tomadachi first, order 1 roll and if you're not happy then go try the other one 1/2 block away. Ami has several booths you can get a party of 4 into, whereas Tomadachi does not. Itz has booths.
I would avoid:
ALCU - Closed for the time being.
ISO Fushion I haven't tried yet.
No not really. I think a good idea would be to use the search funtion above for westside Sushi and find the review or comments that best appeals to you. "Excellent" sushi thats reasonablly affordable is IMHO a very personal thing taking into consideration taste-to-value evaluations versus your favorite more expensive nirvanna sushi experiences.
The last time I was there was about five years ago. Since then they have cleaned up the outside. As I recall it was decent and cheap, although we went there for the booze and no I.D. check.
There's a mini-chain called California Roll and Sushi on Westwood by the Rite-Aid. We used to go there for cheap sushi lunches - it's not bad for the price.
