This is a very popular place. Within five minutes of the 5:00 pm opening, every seat was filled with enthusiastic diners. The conveyor belt can be charming. Nearly everything is uramaki or "sushi rolls" with rice wrapped around a piece of fish or vegetable. Most of the offerings, like the California Roll are designed for American palates and usually unknown... More

Very upbeat, from the moment you enter you notice the movement of servers, the live hands of sushi chefs and the delicious sushi going around...it goes well with a tall Sapporo!

Loved the food! Sampled a lot, but favorites are: salmon, macrel, eal, albacore tuna. Sat by an elderly Asian couple who dine there 5/7 days a week:) which makes sense given the quality and taste of the food in the context of its affordability. The location is not great, but will definitely be back!

Not suitable for quiet romantic dinner, as it's loud and crowded. Chefs are great, waitress was a lot of fun and sushi was delicious. Sign your name to the list near outdoor when the restaurant is full, and they will call your name when your table or place is ready. Take your friends and have fun!

Entirely unassuming location, and on opening the door presented with a small and very noisy restaurant. Might have walked, but was entertaining clients. Some tables packed together, but the seats at the conveyor belt are the ones to go for. The main sushi chef is a nutter - very funny,loud and eccentric, but he and his team know how to... More

I agree with a previous reviewer that this is a quirky & small place but in a good way. The service is great and the sushi and hot food are delicious and somewhat affordable depending on what you get. You can sit at one of the few tables or opt to sit at the sushi bar with the conveyor belt... More

Awesome people, awesome food. I love this place. The revolving sushi bar is awesome and watching the chefs prepare food in front of you is great. Everyone is super friendly and they are always joking with customers. Cool place.

What a cool place with great sushi! When we entered the restaurant, everyone in the place yelled "Hello!" We found a spot at the revolving sushi bar and chose what we wanted as it passed by. The prices are based on the color of the plates. The sushi chef took good care of us and made us sushi rolls and... More

If I am rating the right Sushi place I took my wife after hanging out in Redondo Beach thift shops, this place is great. I spend a lot of money but it was work it. Sitting at the bar and eating sushi from a roto belt with endless dishes. Great place good music and nice people. Good place to entertain.
