  1. Hamma Hermosa for great sushi.

    Fusion PCH & Anza for reasonable, good and interesting stuff, spider roll, volcano sushi and some good basics, had a meal for 3 with 2 beers and a large saki for $90

    1. I haven't been in a few months, but I've always liked Hakone Sushi in Torrance on Sepulveda Boulevard.

        I've been there a few times, but only because co-workers made me go. Overall, I'd say that place is very inconsistent. Sometimes it's OK, sometimes it's just plain awful. Last time I went everything I had was awful and their fish wasn't fresh. I haven't gone back since.

      2. I've always had fine meals at Sen Nari on Western and 182nd om Gardena.

        Sen Nari Sushi Restaurant
        18220 South Western Ave
        Gardena, CA 90248
        (310) 324-1970

          2nd Sen Nari, had a good meal there last weekend. Standouts were abalone sashimi, mentaiko gunkan sushi, anago and ankimo.

        2. Kamiyama Sushi in Lomita - hands down the best in the South Bay. Chef/Owner Travis is creative, personal, and does not gouge his customers. It's the only sushi I eat in the South Bay anymore.

          The Lomita location is dine-in.
          The Manhattan Beach location is catering/take-out only.

            Is the same place as Kotosh at Kamiyama in Lomita? If so - it's awesome! They also have really good Peruvian food.

          2. There is a place in REdondo beach called Kanzen, the food is hands down the best in the southbay. No joke, simply the best sushi I have had since I moves out of LA. Very creative and super fresh. It is on Torrance Blvd in a little strip mall, check it out, you won't be let down

              This is about 1/2 mile from my house...I've been so curious. Can't wait to try it out. Did you get omakasa?
