Top 5 Sushi L.A.- I know it's been done, but this is 2010!

1. Go's Mart - Canoga Park
2. Mori Sushi - Santa Monica
3. Asanebo - Studio City
4. Hanami - Calabasas
5. Yoshida - San Marino

I've never been to Urasawa...$500 per person might be where I draw the line!

The Gayot top 10 pissed me off, always including Nozawa.

      2. Yoshida doesn't even crack the top 25. Kiriko is in the top 5.

          agreed. not a big fan of yoshida. their rice is barely seasoned. Kiriko is much better. I second asanebo.

          1. re: trolley

            C'mon yoshida always has live uni! They used to be a bit better, I only go there about once a year. Never been to Kiriko, im not a fan of Zo or kazu.

            Here are a few that have lost their touch--
            Shibuya
            Kaminari
            Both used to be top notch, but now...not so much.

            Now I have found the new king of Ventura BLVD 4 on 6 wow!

            Kiriko is for sure a top 5 contender! Fish quality and sourcing are top-notch.

          3. Consider Sushi Ike in Hollywood.
            Have heard good things about Sushi Zo in West LA.

                Huge Valley bias above, in my opinion. BUT I will be trying out 4 on 6 soon. Also, Hanami isn't on my radar, but I will be trying that too.

                My top 5 (for straight up quality fish & rice, excluding Urasawa, which is actually sushi kaiseki):

                1. Mori (I'll take Mori-san's Hokkaido uni before Yoshida's (not always great) Santa Barbara uni any old day)
                2. Go's Mart
                3. Kiriko
                4. Kiyokawa (before JGold made it "hip")
                5. Zo (I can't stand Zo's 'tude lately, though)

                1. re: J.L.

                  Thanks for the tip on Kiyokawa, gotta try it.
