Looking for great sushi near Diamond Bar.

Sorry! I know there are many posts on sushi in LA, but I am not too familar with the neighbourhoods! I am looking for amazing sushi, preferably for lunch. I have read the posts on Sushi Zo, and I am tempted to try it, but it's 40 minutes away! Is it really worth it? Or is there some other place that is just as good and closer? Thoughts? Comments?

  1. I don't think you will find Sushi Zo quality in the area. I think one of the best places is Sushi Kamon on Colima by the In'N'Out. It's not bad, but I doubt it is comparable to Sushi Zo.

    1. Try Ninja in Walnut. It's very good.

      I would avoid Jubei. It's always crowded, and the portions are microscopically small, and not that good.

        I'll wait for Jubei any day... to avoid Ninja :-p

      2. probably the only fresh sushi in a 10 mile radius is sushi koyo on diamond bar blvd next to oak tree lanes.

        their lunch special is good, sashimi + salmon teriyaki + tempura for 7.99.
        Dinner omokase is about 70-80$ which is a lil bit costly cause they dont serve anything otu of the ordinary.

          I agree... that the $75ish omakase I paid for, it's not feeling up my tummy :-)

        2. No great sushi in the area....Some good places but nothing to say wow about.

          We are regulars at Sushi Kamon and Jubei, because we live close by. Of the two, I like Sushi Kamon better, but Jubei has more exotic stuff. The sushi chef is a little short until he gets to know you. For instance he ask me three times are you sure, when my son wanted uni. After he polished it off the first time, everytime we go he is served uni without being ordered.

          The neighborhood is better for Chinese foods.

          1. If you're willing to venture south a couple of exits down the 57 there's a good place called Shark Sushi on the corner of Brea Blvd. & Central in Brea. Very friendly, high quality and more creative than most.

            Oishi Sushi on Imperial Hwy. & Rose Dr. is also very good.

            Sushi O in the Birch Street Promenade in Brea is nearly as good but always has 1/2 price on most sushi so it's kinder on the wallet.
