Foursquare Tips

  • More foreigners comes here, and they changed the rule to allow people order dinner set at the sushi bar. Hey, Teriyaki chicken & California roll are definitely not sushi DUDE!!
  • Hamachi Belly & Monk Fish Liver... the best!
  • No wait for lunch, sat at the bar and sushi came out in 2 min!
  • If you like egg noodles get he tsukimi noodles.. You won't be dissapointed!!
  • seared albacore sashimi & salmon sashimi are to die for!
  • A lists -- "sweet shrimp". tell sushi chef to made Miso soup from shrimp heads or Deep fried.
  • Park in the parking garage on Central (near the corner of 1st) for validated parking. It's $6 to enter the garage, but you get your money back with validation.
  • Delicious sushi, and I love the dinner specials! You can get a bento box with a little bit of everything (e.g., tempura, teriyaki, sushi), and it comes with green tea ice cream!
  • Mackerel raw: amazing. Tuna raw: so fresh and red. TempurA hit the spot. Great Japanese

  • Try the Shrimp Tempura Roll, California Roll And Spicy Scallop Roll - (via @Foodspotting)
  • Try the Dinner Set #2 - (via @Foodspotting)

  • Old school perfection! This is not the spot if you're looking for an extensive saki menu or a lot of fancy rolls.
  • Opened 1972. One of the earliest sushi bars in Los Angeles. The first, Kawafuku, opened in Little Tokyo in 1966 and is long gone.
  • Food comes out quick. The chirashi bowl has lots of fresh sashimi and palette cleanser options. Friendly staff, too.
  • "The mackerel at Oomasa in Little Tokyo is always amazing. It's one of those underrated gems." Chef Kris Yenbamroong
  • Tempura combination is a good value for money
  • Spicy yellowtail sushi
