My favorite Sushi Hole in the wall

Crackingfilms | Aug 24, 201102:27 PM     12

Sakura used to be one of the best-kept sushi secrets on LA’s west side. There are swankier, and certainly pricier Japanese Restaurants in town but imo none match Sakura. Being addicted to great Sushi is one thing, being able to afford it is another, which is why Sakura is packed with loyal devotees Tuesday to Sunday. As you wait (ages) for your turn at the tiny bar all you hear is ‘mmms’ and ‘aahhs’. The portions are unusually large. The nightly ‘Specials’ vary but you often see Butter Fish and Blue Fin. The baked Albacore Cheek is wonderful. A great meal for two, including a couple of giant Asahis, runs about $60.00.

Don't think they have a website and they don't take reservations.
