While not inexpensive by any stretch, the sushi here is more fresh and seasonal than even higher end spots like Urasawa. I've caught most of the "top ten" ranked place in LA, and Mori is by far my favorite. The decor is sparse and minimal, but the presentation of the Omakase is the star of the show and is what...

As close as it gets to Tokyo. Omakase is a beauty, with so many different and good balanced flavors. Service is super friendly and funny yet so refined. An absolute treat!

This place might be a little TOO authentic. The sushi is amazing made with high quality ingredients. But all you'd go here for is the food. Full stop. Period. Point. The staff are rather brusque, the environment is very basic and the prices are so high my wife thought I'd eaten for two when she saw the credit card bill.

I really had to put some time between my visit before I posted this. I didn't want my emotions to taint my review, but even now, weeks later, I still feel the same way. I felt the meal was a 1 star, but am bumping it up to 2 b/c staff was pleasant and sushi chef seemed very nice. I... More

I'm very glad a Japanese business associate took us out that night, because the total for our omakase (chef's choice) ran to $225 per head before liquor. That being said, I've been going to Japan regularly since 1980 and this was hands down the best Japanese sushi and sashimi I've had anywhere, anytime, with the exception of one sushi house... More

This is some good sushi - there is no sign outside just a fish. I lived in the area for over 15 years and I loved that I could walk here too. Besides R-23 this is the BEST. Period

This guy knows his sushi. As said in other reviews he grows his own rice and grades his own wasabi. It is an amazing sushi experience. Highly recommend to all true sushi aficionados.

Mori is a genius. He knows how to combine the traditional sushi cuisine with the creative trends of fusion. Let him guide through a trip of savors. The presentation of dishes is also pleasing the eye. Compared to the variety and exclusiveness of dishes, the wine list is modest and should be definitely improved.

We lived in Tokyo and have eaten more sushi than I can count. Unfortunately, Mori Sushi is does not even match some local places though it cost many times their amount. The sushi was not fresh, in fact it was still a bit frozen. The service was poor, and in fact the place was worn and dirty. We were sad... More
