The sushi Nazi is gone . . . . . well kind of. Visited Nozawa years ago and while the sushi was very good, I was not into the lightning rounds of food they brought out at their option. The younger generation has now transposed...More

I'm not sure what else to add that the other reviews haven't covered. The food is remarkably good and consistent... I've been a dozen times and it's always flawless. The fish is SO fresh and good (and in fact, they often run out of things...More

1. If they are busy, they will RUSH you out, in true Japanese sushi bar fashion - so not a great spot for a date or a leisurely meal. 2. The tip is included - this way the servers don't worry about getting a bad...More

I went to Sushi Nozawa because of several glowing recommendations from so-called foodies. I also heard it was closing, and thought I should cough up some dining dollars to experience one of LA's darling hole-in-the-wall sushi joints. I've been to Japan 4 times, and know...More

We read recommendations on line for this place and headed there to have a feast. The first problem was, although there was a tiny parking lot, there was no parking elsewhere. The restaurant was decorated like a diner although the prices were like a fine...More

From the outside, the place looks like a bit like a dump. Well inside with their fish melting in your mouth you know what all the fuss is about.

You would never know by looking at it from the outside - but inside it holds the most delicious sushi! Nozawa is often compared to the 'soup nazi' in seinfeld - and it is true. You will have to take what you are given and...More
