Omakase in the Valley - Suggestions?

Went to Kiwami last night for the first time and loved it. I'm thinking about trying one of their Omakase options soon. If I recall correctly, the menu lists two options, one for $50 and one for $70. Has anyone tried either? Is the $50 option good enough for a date night or is the $70 option significantly better? What's the difference? I've also read that there is a $100 option where you sit with Katsu-ya. Is that the only course where you sit in the back room?

Ideally I'd like to spend under $100/person. Any other suggestions for omakase in the area? Looking for options on the Valley side, between Burbank and Encino.

Thanks!

      "Got Sushi" at Kings Burger. Junn, the Chef, is pretty creative with some of the things he puts together. Last time there he made seared tuna and shiitake mushrooms with a veal soy sauce. Its a sushi counter in his dads burger joint. The location is surreal but the sushi is first rate.

      Chiba, northwest corner of Saticoy and Lankershim, is my favorite. Nice people, great fish.

        I love Chiba! But I don't recall ever seeing omakase listed. Have you had it? Price?

        A bit further west than Encino, but for high-end nigiri, there is no better place in the valley than Sushi Iki in Tarzana (where Burbank meets Ventura). But it's pricey so you could go above $100 per person if you're big eaters

        I also really like Sushi Ichiban Kan in Woodland Hills (at Corbin), which has a variety of options, including non-traditional rolls like Katsu-Ya. I find the fish better and the prices lower at Ichiban Kan. I just don't tend to get omakase because I have long had favorites from Hiro.

        I've never been to Go's Mar in Canoga Parkt, but people rave about the omakase there. It just apparntly can get very pricey.
