Flying in from the East Coast works up a mean appetite. I started dreaming of BBQ ribs while flying over Oklahoma and Kansas, but but the time we arrived in LA I was ready for Dan's. You see, this was not our first rodeo (unless we went to Rodeo Dr). We dined at Sushi Dan's our on our last visit.... More

The place is really simple and the visuals are definitely not outstanding, although clean and organized. It just lacks a good ambient design to make it more charming and cozy. Just a regular fast food look. The service can be a bit "too attentive", if you know what I mean. Sometimes I feel like breathing a bit more between the... More

Sushi Dan offers you Japanese cuisine and they do it well. Service is relatively fast considering the crowd inside. My only complaint was the size of the table. It's really small and because of that it's not comfortable.

Tried this place out after a long day at Universal Studio. (It is about 5 minutes away.) They have a huge variety of sushi rolls, some of which were really creative. We had the eggplant appetizer, vegetable tempura roll and naked salmon roll. Everything was delicious. They have a few options for vegetarians in their sushi and hot food sections.... More

Food was good and well prepared. Staff was okay, not rude or bad service but not extremely friendly either. I had carryout and not dine in so I cannot speak to that part of the experience.

Good sushi! Decently priced but they do have very high end prices on some specials. If you're willing to pay the high end price you won't be dissatisfied with the quality. Busy place on weekdays. Hard to find decent parking.

This is a great place. The only reason I did not give five stars is because the service at the tables is a little uneven. Sometimes great sometimes not. But the sushi is good, the rolls inventive and delicious. 911 roll, forbidden pleasure, and baked langostino on California roll are some of my favorites. You can't go wrong with this... More

I wish I could write a review of all the places that I've visited because a handful of them, really deserves to be recognized for their great service, like take Sushi Dan for example where I really enjoyed my time here.

The setting is simple, but the food is always good. They have the usual rolls but also a great chefs suggestions and creations menu. The sashimi is very fresh. I met a friend here to discuss a new project.mthe service was prompt but not intrusive.
