Hey, if you like little spots (or gems) I should say that serve great sushi. Try a place called GO's in Canoga park. Privatly owned. Great variety and quality. He is a bit cranky if you are on your cell phone,(so if you have one put it on vibrate and hold all calls) but once you get to know him,his two cooks and his wife, oh and their little boy whom you may see around once in a while he is the best. I call it the valley's best kept secret for sushi. Fresh live Japanese scallpos, live conch, and blow fish (when in season) are just the tip of the iceberg. His Toro is unmatched and his ohh go check him out for yourself. Tell him Chef Mike sent you.
