Any good Japanese places open on Sundays at about 2 or 3 pm?

So, my dad has requested Japanese food for Father's Day. He loves sushi. Because of my baby's bedtime, my dad's golf schedule and another family member's conflict, the best time for us to get together is around 2 or 3 pm.

I know Japanese places (I mean, real ones, not places like Todai) are usually closed between lunch and dinner. I've looked up Mori, Asanebo, Kiriko, and a few others, and none of them are open during that time and some aren't open on Sundays at all. Are there any good places that are open at the time we need? We live in Pasadena but my dad will be playing golf on the westside, so anywhere between Pasadena and Santa Monica would work.

I know about Noshi Sushi. That's our fallback, but we've been going there for 20 years now, so we wanted to try somewhere else. Noshi Sushi is comfort food to us.

  1. Good luck with that, if there is one thing that is standard in Japanese restaurants is that they will take their 2-3 hour break between lunch and dinner.

    1. You need to check (don't rely on any web site listing - CALL them) to make sure that the places below still have the same hours (open Sundays from lunch right through dinner) that they did in the past

      If you are looking for sushi (and don't mind a cash only place) then Hide on Sawtelle will work.

      If you are really more interested in general Japanese food (including sushi and other types of cooked dishes) then Asakuma in West LA should work.

      1. Maybe Taiko Restaurant in Brentwood or El Segundo.
