Located in Tarzana, Kushiyu specializes in sushi and kushiyaki (which is Japanese-style charbroiled & skewered items) in addition to a large selection of appetizers.
This Westwood sushi spot combines sophisticated and traditional Japanese flavors with Californian twists in an elegant and welcoming space. Tucked in the corner of a strip mall is this beloved roll-zone, as noted for its celebrity clientele as it is for its food. The rolls are deliciously over-the-top (The Lourd: spicy tuna, avocado, tempura flakes, spicy rice, mango and Jalapeño sauce. Tell me that doesn’t sound good.), and the chef takes his omakase very, very seriously.
Don't let the strip mall location fool you, Sushi Park doles out some of the freshest and tastiest sushi you'll find in the area. Your best bet is the omakase, and even though it can get pricey, it's totally worth it.
The space is simple and the prices are a bit steep, yes, but you'll get stellar raw fish prepared by skilled traditionalists, in return.
With an amazing selection of rolls and various flavors/types of sake, Sasabune is your go-to for a reasonably affordable sushi meal in Beverly Hills.
Don't let the strip mall surroundings fool you, because this gem boasts a chef trained by the guys at Sasabune, and deliciously fresh sushi served up with vinegary rice.
The first location of the sushi institution, Katsu-ya on Ventura has delicious baked crab hand rolls and spicy tuna crispy rice that stand out from the competition. With fresh cuts, bento boxes, and a variety of Japanese dishes...it's not so so bad for a strip mall sushi.
Tucked in the corner of a strip mall (again, natch), everyone who does make it to this longtime spot leaves talking about melt-in-your-mouth salmon, perfectly pickled cucumbers, and an omakase that splits the difference between cooked dishes like ground shrimp-stuffed zucchini flowers and their perfectly proportioned nigiri.
