Japanese lunch in Culver City/Palms

wongman Feb 6, 2008 10:12 AM

Any suggestions for places w/ good lunch specials? Doesn't have to be sushi. And not Miyako or Sushi Karen or Yokohama.

            Very good, but most definitely not in Culver City. Closer to Santa Monica.

            High end expensive and awsome sushi: Sushi Zo.

            Kaizuka on Culver: rolls and the like, also typical cooked items.
            Sushi Mashiko on Jefferson in the Ralph's shopping center: go for the cooked items, I didn't care for their raw fish even tho lots of people go there for sushi all the time.
            Sakura on Centinela: haven't been myself, but I think it's gotten some good reviews here.
            Sushi Academy on Centinela if they are still doing the sushi lunches.

            Definitely agree /w the Santouka rec.

              Is the Sushi Academy still on Centinela? I thought it moved somewhere? Or did it move to that location?

                  Looks like they've moved to Robertson, near National.
