Sushi tonight for family

We are from NY with our 2 kids and love the sushi in LA. We ate at Itzakoya the other night and planned on eating at Wa tonight but they are closed. We are staying in West Hollywood and will travel! Any suggestions? Thanks!

  1. i like Boss Sushi on La Cienega.

    1. You don't say what sort of budget (if any) you're trying to hold to or if you are looking for cooked dishes or rolls as well as traditional sushi (no real cooked dishes or rolls at Zo and a few, but still not too many at Mori). Lots of good talk on the board about Kiyokawa in Beverly Hills. We like Kiriko on Sawtelle in Little Osaka and Sushi Zo in LA but very close to Culver City and Mori in West LA and for budget sushi Hide also on Sawtelle (cash only). All but Hide are all on the upper end of prices.

      Sushi Zo
      9824 National Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90034

      11301 W Olympic Blvd Ste 102, Los Angeles, CA 90064

      Mori Sushi
      11500 W Pico Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90064

      Kiyokawa Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar
      265 S Robertson Blvd Ste 10, Beverly Hills, CA 90211

        I like Kiyokawa a lot -- particularly when you compare their prices to other spots of similar quality -- but it would sort of depend on how old the kids are. It's a pretty mellow, low-key place.

        Mori has, in my estimation, higher quality fish, but you'll certainly pay for it.

      2. HIde Sushi on Sawtelle, inexpensive and very fresh fish.

          slightly above hide in price, but, imho, better fish and certainly prettier restaurant, k-zo in culver city.

        2. Sasabune in West LA has some of the best sushi we've ever had. Go there strictly for the food though as decor is pretty minimal. The sushi is quite incredible!

            Yes, for pre prepared, then cellophane wrapped and refrigerated, bulk purchased, MSG laden, heavily sauced fish, with too warm rice that falls apart, Sasabune is hard to beat. There is always Nozawa though...

            1. re: cls

              my thoughts exactly.

              so sad because sasabune used to be much better when they were operating out of the building that bar hayama is currently in.

                I had many enjoyable meals there as well. Part of it losing it's appeal though is the fact that there is much better sushi now than even ten years ago so it's harder to operate with the soft=fresh fish premise.
