Chowhounders recs for (good) Sushi, lunch, $40/pp, Westside
Need some recommendation to a good sushi place (no Sushi Factory or California Roll type places) for lunch:
Location: within the confines of the Westside proper.
Price: Maximum $40 per person (tax, tip included and no alcohol).
Hours: open for lunch
No Omakase only - 2 out of 8 people aren't very well versed in the world of sashimi or nigiri.
Generous servings probably preferred (yes, I know that's kind of an oxymoron in the sushi world)
PS. No Asakuma please, I have heard their quality went down quite a bit the last year.
There have been quite a few recs for Kiriko sushi on Sawtelle. This thread claims that you can get a lunchtime omakase for $32pp, but it's not required.
You might also try Hide sushi on Sawtelle. Pretty cheap, not outstanding quality, but something for everyone.
