Sushi in South Bay (revisited)

pescaholic | Dec 14, 201410:55 AM     27

Hello, sorry to post this topic again on this board, but I searched and cannot find any recent information on this topic for South Bay. We recently moved to Manhattan Beach from Seattle and are in search of good sushi. Good sushi means a lot of things to a lot of people, to me it means Jinpachi in West Hollywood or Sushi Park on Sunset. I've been to both places and though both were excellent, just tired of making the drive every time we need a sushi fix. Will try a roll if it sounds interesting, but we like to sit at the sushi bar and have the sushi chef serve up whatever nigiri he/she likes for the day, then finish up with some uni :)

We've tried the following places nearby:
Akatora - disappointed
Izaka-Ya - disappointed
Shima (Venice) - disappointed and total rip off

I would probably try Izaka-Ya again, but forget the other two. If anyone is familiar with Seattle sushi restaurants, we went to Kisaku almost every weekend. If I could find anything like that here I would cry from happiness.

Any help appreciated. Thanks again!
-Dave
