Included In

This tiny spot in Sherman Oaks couldn’t be less like the clubs pretending to be restaurants also called Katsuya. Instead of people wearing bandage dresses eating $20 rolls, there are couples on casual date nights having a quick meal at the sushi bar before a movie. The sushi here is not only better than what you’d get at the Hollywood Katsuya, but also about a third of the price. It’s a great spot to get a mix of things - some crispy rice with spicy tuna, the gyoza, a few nigiri, and a roll or two - before heading to Arclight down the street.

The original Katsu-Ya in Studio City is also the best.

Hara Sushi image

Hara might not be the best sushi in LA, but its fun, affordable, and downright infectious.

Sushi Spot image

Sushi Spot in Tarzana does a solid omakase in a room with zero atmosphere.


Sushi Park in West Hollywood is fun and kitschy, but no longer a destination for LA sushi purists.
