Probably the most authentic Sushi restaurant in LA, 1/20/2011

I can see why people would be upset about the ""bad"" service. Foodwise this is the closest thing to AUTHENTIC high end sushi in LA that I have experienced. I have been living in Tokyo for 20 plus... years.I visit LA several times a year for business and was very surprised when I was taken here. Kind of on the expensive side and they are NOT very friendly but that is no different from many snooty places in Japan.Sushi Sushi would fall into the snobby Sushi category in Tokyo where they are not very friendly and the customer is expected to rely upon Itamae san's (Sushi chef's) expertise.I have been to Sasabune, Sushi Roku, Matsuhisa, Katsuya, etc. since my clients use me as a barometer for Japanese food. Those places are fun and have decent food but are more glitzy and Western. Nothing wrong with that since they do great business.If you go into Sushi Sushi with those expectations, this is not the place for you. They definitely have a preference for Japanese (speaking) clientele which shows in the change of attitude when they realized we were from Japan.Concerning wasabi and shoyu, this is consistent with high end places here in Japan as well. Firstly, it's not common to ask for more/extra wasabi. You can ask for no wasabi but it is uncommon for Japanese to ask for extra wasabi when eating sushi.Some of the more delicate cuts have a ponzu sauce or rock salt so as to NOT overwhelm the flavor of the fish meat.If you ordered Kobe/marbled beef at a restaurant and asked for A1 steak sauce or ketchup, you would get a disapproving look. They would feel you are killing the flavor of the meat. Putting so much shoyu on your sushi that the rice breaks apart or having nearly green with wasabi is considered how non Japanese eat Sushi. So the people at Sushi Sushi were probably offended if you ask for either or both.Anyway, food here is very good but expensive but probably not for everyone since they are definitely not warm and fuzzy which is who they want to present themsel

WORST SUSHI EXPERIENCE EVER!, 3/11/2010

.My girlfriend and I are sushi fanatics. We are ""regulars"" (servers and chefs recognize/greet us by our first names) at Matsuhisa, Sushi Zo, Mori Sushi and Sasabune. We happily spend $300-400 per... visit on excellent sushi not including drinks at least once a week.\r\rI was skeptical about this place, first because of its name and location (on a street full of cheap franchise restaurants), but I've decided to give it a try after reading some of the good reviews here. But after my visit last night, I honestly doubt if any of these people with good review even know what sushi is! I have never written reviews of any kind before, but my experience was so horrible, I even created an ID today to write this. \r\rWhen I entered the restaurant, servers were very pleasant and polite, and they were great all throughout the evening, but it was the food and the chef that hugely disappointed both of us. \r\rFirst, when we sat on the bar, the chef did not greet us or even look at us, not to mention asking what we wanted. After wondering about what to do (whether to keep waiting or get his attention) for 5 minutes, I said ""excuse me chef, we're ready"", but his reaction was none. He didn't even look at us and just said to himself ""Go ahead, I'm listening"". He wasn't even making anything for anybody. The whole restaurant had only 5 customers including ourselves - clearly not busy. So I was a little ticked-off from the beginning by his attitude. \r\rSecond, I've never been to a sushi restaurant where they tell us NOT to use soy sauce and don't even serve wasabi. (clearly, they don't know the importance of a good-quality wasabi to a high-level sushi experience). On their ""instruction sheet"", it says that they're trying to keep the ""traditional Japanese style"" sushi, so they put ""adequate amount"" of wasabi and soy sauce before serving them to the customers. I lived in Tokyo for 5 years, and I know that it's not the traditional Japanese style NOT to serve soy sauce and wasabi.

Authentic Japanese Sushi!

For consistently great sushi (so great they named it twice), I can wholeheartedly recommend Sushi Sushi on South Beverly Drive near Olympic Boulevard. However, this place is not for everyone. If you like creative California-style sushi rolls (think ""rainbow rolls"" or ""dynamite rolls"") you won't find any of that here.\r\rThis is a Tokyo-style no-nonsense sushi establishment that caters to customers who want an authentic Japanese experience. Perhaps that is why typically a third to a half of the customers appear to be Japanese.\r\rThe owner/operator is another reason this place is not for everyone. His expertise is to buy some of the freshest fish, many of which are flied in from Japan, and present the fish beautifully. He is a person who takes a lot pride in what he is doing, and wants to provide an authentic experience. I give him kudos to stick to his beliefs despite the market pull to cater to a sometimes non-traditional customer base.\r\rHowever, be warned....he is not a ""warm and fuzzy"" guy who will make any effort to make your visit more pleasant. If you ask him what he recommends, he'll point to the sign behind him showing the day's specials. I have been told that if you ask for extra wasabi, and he'll explain that they put the appropriate amount on the sushi, so you shouldn't need any more.\r\rBut the reason to come here is the food..and did I mention the beer? If you like beer, I recommend you start your culinary experience with an ice-cold draft beer. I have actually seen floating ice in some of the beers I have ordered, which are always served in frozen mugs...very refreshing!\r\rIf you are an adventurous eater, you can start your meal with an appetizer featuring a Japanese pasta dish. Don't worry, this is not your LA fusion dish. This \ris a dish featuring squid sushi cut in spaghetti-like strips covered with globs of sweet and salty uni(sea urchin)...delicious.\r\rAnother unique dish to check out is the seared O-Toro, where a nice-sized slab of ver

One of the WORST Sushi Restaurants in LA

I consider myself fairly experienced when it comes to sushi. I had probably the worst experience I?ve ever had at a sushi restaurant at Sushi Sushi on Beverly Dr in BH. I went in with high hopes for a relaxing sushi dinner and was more than prepared to pay for high quality in food, presentation and service. Well?Unfortunately, the head sushi chef (perhaps owner) was our chef as we sat behind the counter. He had a scowl the never left his etched and weathered face. The attitude and simply bad energy from this guy was unnerving. The sushi was mediocre at best and portions very small and only one piece at a time. Yet, be prepared to pay premium prices beyond that of any other quality sushi restaurant in the area the provides two pieces and a healthy servings be it sushi or sashimi.Really, save your money ? Sushi sushi on Beverly Dr. in Beverly Hills is at the top of my don?t go back list and certainly one that I will tell all my friends to avoid.

Possible head sushi chef needs an attitude adjustment

After a stressful day, my boyfriend and I wanted to have a nice and relaxing dinner at Sushi Sushi, a place I've visited once before.\rWell, after sitting at the sushi bar for a while we experienced the worst service. The rudness of the sushi chef was unacceptable. Talk about the ""sushi natzi"". This man makes Attila The Hun seem like a boyscot.\rI one point, I thought my boyfriend was about to jump over the counter and adjust his nose.!\rThere are far too many sushi restaurants around town to have to waste your time here.\r\r

One of the Best in LA

This is probably my favorite sushi restaurant in LA. The food is great, the place is intimate and unpretentious, the price is right. The service is good. A perfect place to meet a friend.

Omakase For Beginners Ruined My Passion

I ate there last week (my third time) with my daughter (we are both very experience sushi eaters) and was very disappointed. Being in the mood to relax and let the chef do the thinking, we ordered omakase with some nice saki. The saki was excellent. Unfortunately, I can not say the same for the food. While all of the fish was fresh, the omakase was the least adventurous omakase I have had anywhere in the world. It was basically sushi 101 for the one timers from Nebraska, which we most definitely are not. The preparation was insulting, and the service was, to say the least, mediocre. The restaurant is a 5 minute drive from my office, and I was looking forward to becoming a regular. Nothing like finding a nearby sushi place you can call your own. Won't happen here. The next time someone orders omakase, lose the sweet egg and other basic nonsense and honor your cuisine.

My all time favorite

This place is my all time favorite Sushi place. I've had sushi all over the world and in every metro area of the US and have yet to find a place that compares. \r\rThese days, I live in San Diego, but whenever I am in LA, I make it a point to stop by Sushi Sushi for a tasty treat. I don't know what the loser who gave it 3 stars was on, all the selections offered at Sushi Sushi are prime grade. Having said that, I rarely order a la carte, why waste energy, when there is an expert behind the counter? \r\rI always order the chef's course, a bottle of sake and kick back while the chef chooses the most delicious selection of fish. The presentation is always elegant and the variety is great. You can eat here every day and not get bored.

Best sushi I've ever had, similar to the best in Japan

A coworker recommended me to go to Sushi Sushi so I went there last week with some friends from Japan. I have to say, it was really great sushi. The toro was amazing and I couldn't get enough of that. It has a cozy atmosphere and you must get the sushi bar table and get the chef's special. Our waitress, Fumi, was great, she made sure we had everything we needed so if you go there, ask for her. My Japanese friends say the food is just like how Japanese sushi should be. Highly recommended, I will always take my Japanese clients there to eat after work. BTW, if you order sake, get the one called ""Ken"", that cold sake is awesome.

quiet elegance

This is the best Sushi in L.A. The Omakase Chef's Selection is always awesome. The chef, Shige offers delectable and fresh sashimi--ususally 2 kinds of toro, marinated tuna, seared albacore always the best. The presentation is lovely and the staff friendly and warm.
