Fresh Sushi/Montebello Area

Am in the Montebello area. Does anyone have a recommendation of really good/fresh sushi anywhere near here? Thank you.

      They have gone down in quality and service really really fast. Will no longer recommend.

        What's the alternative, then? Osho? Niko niko? Tozai? Hungry strike?

          IIRC there's a small japanese supermarket off potrero grande that serves takeout sushi that apparently gets a lot of japanese customers buying it. i tried it once based on a post by ipsedixit since i happened to had an errand that took me that way. i wouldn't drive that far to get it but if i were in montebello it might be worth it if you didn't want to drive very far. otherwise, i'd drive the 20 minutes it would probably take to go to some place like Z. but there really isn't a lot of very good sushi in the SGV.

              yes, thanks; i tried looking for that thread but couldn't find it.

            Taihei in MPK is good for cooked foods. Sushi not so much.

            1. re: cfylong

              What place in the OP's area do you recommend for sushi, cfylong?

              1. re: cfylong

                as a general rule, i don't expect good sushi from a place that serves a wide range of the non sushi portion of japanese cuisine. few places can afford to have expert chefs in the kitchen as well as behind the sushi bar.

        2. Taihei in Monterey Park near border of Montebello is good

          1. Go to Little Tokyo.

            Either Enya or Toshi.

            Or Aburiya Toranoko for something a bit more eclectic.
