Sushi on Sunday

I am looking for places to eat sushi on Sunday anywhere from West Hollywood to West LA. I know a good bunch of places are closed, but wondering what is open.

Price range is not really an issue.

      NEVER go to Mori on Sunday! Horrible experience!

        Sushi is quite not-so-fresh by Sunday in general in L.A. (which is why many respectable places are closed Sundays). Can you go on a Tuesday through Friday?

          U-Zen on Santa Monica Blvd. just east of Bundy has been our Sunday go to place if we are in the mood for sushi and it is reliable and fairly priced.

            i've been to u-zen before, and i concur about it's quality and price.
            good to know about it being open on sunday, thank you servorg.

              We also like some of their appetizers (we mix and match sushi and appetizers normally). Especially tasty are the garlic sprouts with shrimp and the spicy tofu for app's.

                oh, oh, oh! spicy tofu!
                d'ya think they made the stuff themselves (like musha)?
                there is a WORLD of difference between the homemade stuff and the prepackaged tofu.
                homemade tofu can be sublime. . . .

                  I'm not certain, but probably not. It's definitely not like the in-house made tofu offered at Musha, which looks like a big bowl of whipped cream (the Japanese equivalent of burrata to me - not in terms of taste but in terms of the look). The sauce and the veggies on top of U-Zen's version really make this a "go to" dish for me. And the garlic sprouts dish is just so fresh tasting and the shrimp are addictive too. Very different than anything I have ever had elsewhere.

            sushi dokoro kirala...they may not have everything on sunday, but i think that's a good sign...you can go for the sushi omakase or the full omakase which has really good nobu-ish stuff...

              Noshi Sushi on Beverly is a Sunday afternoon tradition for us. Good, fresh, and reasonably priced. (And the rice is well seasoned.) Cash only, and it gets crowded after around 4:30, so we usually try to go for a late lunch/early dinner.
