Anyone been to the California Sushi Factory in Santa Monica?

  1. In my opinion, they make cheap rolls using cheap fish. Not 'Houndish, but it attracts lots of student-types on a budget (which, as a former grad student, is totally understandable).

      That's pretty much the only reason I went there

      Good enough if you're not in a 'hound mood.

        Even as a poor grad student it wasn't a fave of mine...they do huge, poor-quality rolls consisting of everything you can imagine, heaping in mayo. I actually like creative rolls in addition to more traditional sushi, but I didn't like the ones they serve there.

      2. They're still open? Huge, sloppily prepared rolls. Choose the customer created favorites hand written on the wall! Hey, it was great back when I was in school (in the same vein as the all you can eat at the Lighthouse and Cowboy sushi), but yeah, like the others, I've moved on.

        1. huge and sloppy rolls that are cheap. to each their own.
