sushi help in woodland hills

Shibuya in Calabasas is the best sushi I know of around Woodland Hills. Maybe 10 minutes away. Never considered them by the size of their rolls (there's a pun in there somewhere) but they're highly recommended!

Try Brothers or Little Brothers, both on Ventura (Brothers is just west of Canoga, while Little Brothers is between Topanga and the 101). They are branches of the same place, Brothers is the original, more lively and crowded while Little Brothers is smaller, more quiet and intimate.
Each has a nice variety of rolls of very high quality and not too expensive. I recommend the Keri roll and the garlic shrimp roll, but they each have a variety of others as well...but, I just can't seem to get past the Keri...a mixture of crab, tuna, salmon, a diced shrimp tempura, and onions...it's out of this world!!
Even their more "normal" rolls (spicy scallop, yellowtail, spicy tuna, etc.) are great as well. But, always look at their "specials" board for some nice rolls at great prices. For instance, sometimes they'll have a salmon skin roll or spicy scallop hand roll, for $3 each.
Please try it, and report back!! Enjoy!!

re: GK in SO
Bob, please don't worry, the portions are pretty big. For example, the cut Keri roll usually comes in 4 large, round pieces, each around 1-1.5 inches thick and 3 inches in diameter.
I'm usually satisifed with that, plus an order or two of nigiri and maybe another roll or two. Such an assortment usually sets me back around $25 or so (of which the Keri costs around $8 or $9), which I consider well worth it for such high quality which has always been excellent in my experience (been going there since 1994).
