Sushi in Hollywood/Beverly hILLS

Any suggestions for some good Sushi places in the Hollywood/Beverly Hills area. Someone suggested Sushi Roku. While I have never been, I haven't heard too many good things about it. Since it is for a date, a nice atmosphere would be a plus.
Thanks

  1. I would suggest Wa Sushi on La Cienega or Sushi Sushi in Beverly Hills if you are both really into sushi. Sushi Roku is also good and has a more chic atmosphere.

    1. Must strongly disagree about Sushi Roku being good. Roku is simply awful. The only place worse for food in the Hollywood/BH area would be Yamashiro.

      Try Matsuhisa if you want to impress your date, but be aware of 3 things:
      1. It is very expensive
      2. Get the Hot and Cold Specials on the menu. They are better than the sushi served there.
      3. Did I mention that Matsuhisa is very expensive?

      If your date wants to eat only spicy tuna on crispy rice, sip cocktails, and watch the paparrazi frenzy, then venture a bit further north on La Cienega and hit Koi.

      1. My two favorite sushi spots in this part of town are Sushi Ike on Hollywood and Gower and Hirozen on Beverly near Kings Road Cafe. If you want to go a little bit more glitzy, try out Katsu-ya on Hollywood and Vine, though I've never been given that Ike is two blocks further away and I don't have to valet my car.

          I agree - Hirozen is great. Sushi Roku is gross.

          I would also recommend Gonpachi. It's not all sushi, but the concept is to share everything (small plates) so that might be fun for a date.

          1. re: Obessed

            i also agree with Hirozen. it's one of my favorite spots in this part of town. there's also another place that i like -which i hardly ever go to as i would choose Hirozen- it's on 3rd street west of la cienega on the south side of the street. it's yellow and they have an outside patio... i'm blanking on the name. does anyone know what it's called? i also really like azami on melrose.

              Hirozens omakase is excellent. The only downside is the sushi bar is so small. I feel claustrophobic watching the 10 chefs packed behind the bar.

              1. re: Clyde

                Sushi Mon?
                on 3rd, west of San Vicente, directly across from Cedars Sinai?

                1. re: msmd310

                  yes - that's it. i've eaten there about 5 times and had good experiences - especially with their fancy rolls.

          2. Katsuya in Hollywood would probably fit the bill.

            1. my colleague, who lives in BH, swears by sushi sushi.

                I also think Sushi Sushi is way below the radar for its quality. By all means go!

              2. Roku is disgusting.

                Hirozen or Mon are good.

                I think Gonpachi might be fun, but I've never been.

                  Go to Gonpachi for the decor (it's really cool-looking) and their soba noodles (which is homemade). Get a few select sakes (they have a huge list of sakes) and imbibe.

                  But that's it. AVOID the rest of their overpriced food menu at all costs.

                    Well said J.L. :)

                    I agree: Gonpachi is really fun for its decor (IMHO, it looks like you're at the real House of Blue Leaves in KILL BILL w/ Uma Thurman :) - absolutely gorgeous - but most of the dishes are so-so at best.

                2. Go to Sushi Ike on Gower. Sit at the bar. I have eaten at countless sushi places all over LA and this is the one that has NEVER served me anything but superb quality food.

                  1. To echo what SauceSupreme and EliAnnKat said ... go to Sushi Ike.
