While the service was great(fast seating, correct orders, polite/friendly service), the food was disappointing and pricey. Not only did our rolls not taste great(how can a California Roll go wrong), but the presentation was lacking. Most sushi restaurants that I have visited pried their selves...More

Very good sushi. High quality fresh fish, and being from Norway I'm picky about fish. Halibut great, also spicy tuna and lobster roll. Gyoza and spicy edamame also to recommend. And the service was excellent!

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
