I have been dining at Sushi Masu on Westwood Blvd for some time now, off-and on, maybe 1 or 2 times per month. I have, however, been attempting to broaden my horizons a bit and try other sushi establishments in the area. Having now done so, I can unabashedly and unequivocally say that Sushi Masu is the BEST in town (especially on the West Side) when it comes to quality and affordability. He tends to stick to the more traditional preparations but that is only to his credit. His portions are very, very generous and his fish is of the highest quality. His tuna handrolls are to die for and his shellfish is delicious. Staff is super-friendly and the atmosphere is very casual. Be brave and go omakase! We recently tried Takao in Brentwood which has high zagat ratings and were relatively disappointed -- the owner and his staff seem to have forgotten what sushi is about. They are too caught up in the local "scene" - portions are tiny, prices are outrageous, and offerings are surprisingly skimpy.
Go to Sushi Masu sometime! Especially over the weekend if you are looking for a delicious alternative to Thanksgiving leftovers -- he will be closed on Thursday, but open to the public Friday through Sunday. I was just there last night (hence the accolades), but you might even see me there. :-)
