As you could probably guess from the name, this Downtown LA spot specializes in made-to-order sushi hand rolls. It’s an unabashed imitator of KazuNori, the hand roll bar with locations in Mid-Wilshire, DTLA, Westwood, and Santa Monica. The problem is, it’s just not the same - the prices are higher while the quality of fish is lower. That being said, it’s a totally fine place for lunch or a quick meal when you have a meeting Downtown - be sure to get the lobster roll (which comes in the five-roll omakase) and the bay scallop (which doesn’t). If you’re really hungry, the o-toro tartare with truffle yuzu ponzu sauce is a great way to start the meal.

The only thing we think about after walking out of KazuNori is how to get more KazuNoris everywhere.

The downtown location of the iconic sushi chain is still some of the freshest fish in the neighborhood.

Bargain hunting for sushi rarely yields good results. Unless you’re going to Sushi Gen.
