Good Inexpensive Sushi nr cnr of Larrabee & Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood?

Partner's teenager has moved to LA and claims she can't find any good sushi. She's happy to eat from trains and the like, but for some reason thinks what she's finding in LA isn't adequate

I'm certain there's good sushi in West Hollywood, but am not sure exactly where. Can you help please? (Sorry if this has been asked before)

  1. Since she wants to avoid the high end, the ones which occur to me are Hirozen and Wa.

        +1 for Ajisai...and i'd probably give Hirozen the edge over Wa.

        She's on a student budget, so high end is for special occasions only - however she tended to eat quite a bit of sushi when she was in Sydney

        Thanks for these recommendations

          Echi next to O Bar might be a good fit.

      3. The lunch special at Sushi Dan is one of the best bargains in town, and if you get it with the crunchy onion albacore sashimi or the salmon and scallop roll, you can't really go wrong.

        1. It might help if we knew whether the teenager was more interested in traditional sushi or the modern iterations. Maybe she could explain in more detail what she's looking for (what's available in Sydney isn't real common knowledge in LA).

          1. i love the chirashi, ono, ikura, uni and salmon skin roll here. it's in an easy-to-miss spot, on the north side of san vicente just east of la cienega. it's next to LA paella.

            1. Unfortunately, in Los Angeles, there's often a big difference between "A good source for X" and "A good source for X within a short walk..."

              Noshi Sushi, at the south-by-southeast edge of Hollywood, has pretty good, pretty reliable, pretty inexpensive sushi. They're inexpensive in part because they're not paying W. Hollywood rent.
