Need not-awesome and not-pricey sushi tonight - SM/Venice

All of this board's considerable discussions of the cadre of fine sushi joints won't really help. 13 year old son just arrived and says he'd like sushi tonight - which, for him, means we need a nice variety of rolls. So, we just need a rec for good quality, but needn't be inspiring, sushi place with good rolls in the Santa Monica, WLA (west of Bundy - not going back to my old hood by Sawtelle tonight) or northern Venice. Time be of the essence. Thanks yo.

            Someday, wsg, I'm going to say something so offensive to your culinary compass, you're going to say "disrespectfully disagree ..."

              although i may be incited to say that someday, somehow i don't think it will be in response to any of your recommendations!

            I think Sushi King is great for a kid.

          3. If you don't mind the din, Hara Sushi would probably fit the bill, and it's just barely in your preferred area...
