The quality of fish was fine, but the presentation was austere, and the temperature of the sushi rice was overly warm to the point of being straight out of the rice cooker! What? The old-school traditional sushi chefs in Japan would not even let women prepare nigiri as they (I don't agree) said the temperature of women's hands is too... More

I am not a sushi fan so I have little experience. Anyway this is the best sushi I ever had (out of 100 samples). This restaurant is well known for its quality in town.

I am a huge sushi lover and I am always a little worried about the quality of fish whenever I enter a sushi restaurant. But at Sugarfish I had a great experience throughout. Service was really nice and quick and as I said already, the quality and taste of the food was fantastic. The only thing to mention is that... More

Order the tasting menu. They have it broken down from not that hungry, medium hungry and really hungry. If you have someone in your group that does not like raw fish beware that most of the sushi offerings are uncooked. The wine and beer selections are limited but once we were seated the food came out quickly. Overall great sushi.

This restaurant was very highly rated and (was told) frequented by many celebrities. It is not very big in size and booking is not accepted, so first come first serve. There is always a queue waiting, we got there around 10 PM on a week night and still had to wait. Can't commend about the decor, as the place was... More

The food was terribly disappointing. The fish was a fair. The presentation lacked any attempt at style. I sat at the sushi bar viewing people bus plates and dump them in the trash. The open kitchen was a mess of boxes, and a noisy, artless chaotic production. Needless to say- this is not something I could recommend. There is not... More

No trip to Los Angeles would be complete without at least a meal or two at sugarfish! The servers are always attentive and friendly, the menu includes a vast variety of dishes, and the ambiance is always excellent! They have a number of menus such as the trust me lite (perfect for lunch) and trust me which allows you to... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
