Fresh and delicious!
Honestly I don't like to put this place in the open...it's kinda a LA secret. They have a staff of very old men that are really good at making sushi. If you do something long enough you master it. And these guys are probably some of the best in town. So go get some unfiltered sake, and just tell the old men to make you something delicious, and then buy them a beer. They will have a small glass and toast you, and hook you up with something insane.
Great place for sushi, legit, good chefs, good fish. Fun mall too, with a kinda Dave and Buster's on the top floor and beard papa's as well as a dollar kinda of Japanese store. Validated parking.
Best tempura, and rolls.
Great sushi. Nice atmosphere.
This is becoming one of my top 3 favorite sushi bars in L.A. The servers are very attentive, the sushi chef's are very good and can get as creative as you would allow them if you are in an adventurous mood. Prices vary let item and are on the moderate for most but they have a few that Do trend higher than other places. However, the freshness, quality and accordingly, the taste of the food here is a perfect match to the pricing levels!
Reminds me more of Japan than any other place in LA in all the good ways.
Hasn't disappointed yet. Excellent quality for the price point. If you are looking for a spot that offers familiar Japanese dishes including sushi and tempura, Sushi Go55 is great. Validates for adjacent parking garage.
If you love fresh sashimi that will literally melt like butter then this is hands down thee place to go. Very casual restaurant. Who needs all that glam anyway when the food speaks for itself. To get the full on experience with sashimi, sit at the sushi bar. The sushi chef (itamae) will feed you like a king or Queen (that you are) if you let them take the wheel. Order the Omakase (I’ll leave it up to you). Sit back, relax and savor this fresh high quality sashimi. Enjoy :-)
Excellent sashimi and excellent service. A great place to eat now that Flying Fish is closed.
A wonderful experience. We feel like family after coming here a few times. The chirashi is a work of art, and absolutely fresh. Also like the Spanish mackerel and the uni. Taste like I just caught them.
If you make reservations in advance for omakase the head chef will take very very good care of you. Fiancé and I have been to a handful of omakase places in the LA area and you definitely get a generous amount for not that bad a price. Glad I decided to take him here for his birthday this year. It was our first time and we couldn't be happier.
Best sushi I've had in a long time. The fish was incredibly fresh and the presentations were clean and simple. Go there early because it gets crowded for lunch. I've never been there for dinner.
One of my favorite sushi paces in LA. Sure not as good as sushi gen, but not as pricey. Plus you can get Beard Papa in the mall for dessert!:)
Excellent food, outstanding value (generous and high quality portions) and gracious service. I wish I could eat lunch here every week!
Been going to this place over ten years already and never have any regret. Super warm and friendly serve with cute Japanese accent is the first thing that get greet you to the place. Food is amazing. This is one of the most authentic Japanese restaurants in little tokyo. Keep your parking ticket and they will validate it for you. Almost all the workers have been working here over ten years already and that tells you something about the place right. Please try, you won’t regret.
Only in the very best sushi restaurants can you walk in and immediately smell the quality of the seafood. Sushi Go 55 is one of these places and by far the cheapest where I've had such an experience. Fantastic sushi and the chirashi bowl is a real treat for your eyes and for your mouth as well. Probably my favorite sushi restaurant in this neighborhood that is just overflowing with sushi joints.
Delicious affordable sushi!
