Sushi bars in Culver City


First on our list is Uzumaki. This whole in the wall sushi bar is one of our favorites because it is affordable. Also, they are very accommodating to anyone with dietary restrictions. They can switch up a lot of their items to gluten-free versions as well. Our must-try on the menu is the sea bream nigiri sushi or shrimp, scallop, and crab roll.

Shikibu Brown Rice Sushi 

A staple dish on any sushi menu is a spicy tuna crispy rice cut roll. Shikibu Restaurant near your apartments for rent in Culver City, however, has the BEST crispy rice roll. Taking into consideration their name, they take a healthier approach with their rice. Every dish includes brown rice and fresh, organic vegetables.

Sushi Mashiko

We’ve got another hidden gem on Jefferson Blvd. called Sushi Mashiko. We typically go for hand rolls and cut rolls, but Sushi Mashiko has a chicken bento box that is a definite must-try. They also mix things up a bit with their sashimi salad.

Sakura Japanese Restaurant

Last up is a Sakura. Interestingly enough, one of our favorite dishes on the menu is non-seafood related. It’s their chicken teriyaki! However, we are going to assume you want insight into their sushi. Our favorites are the yellowtail and seared ono.
