"Sushi spot" (thats the name of the restaurant) in Tarzana

Any info on this place? I just read about it on another web site. Looks like a former Nozawa guy??? I am not a fan of Nozawa, just wondering if this place is better?

  1. Chef Taku worked under Nozawa in the early 80s. Sushi Spot has been around since 1989. Probably the most underrated and under-the-radar sushi restaurants in Los Angeles. I enjoy the sushi experience here more than Go's Mart, Asanebo, and Sushi Yotsuya. People drive to the Valley just to eat at Sushi Spot, including Chef Craig Thornton (Wolvesmouth). Not the kind of place for rolls or a scene for people watching. I've seen some regulars who are celebrities eat here. It's a simple restaurant and very hole-in-the-wall-ish near a 7-11 and Apey Kade (one of the best places for Sri Lankan food). Service is friendly and very attentive because it never is crowded whenever I visit.

      For years, I enjoyed the food at Sushi Spot in Tarzana, but it always feels a little dank inside. Perhaps it was the carpet or the lighting, and I have not been there in a few years. Have they remodeled?

    2. No, I don't think they have remodeled the place. If ambience such carpet or lighting is an important dining factor for you, then maybe Sushi Spot is not for you.
