If you don’t already know, our food blogs feature the latest and greatest in the food scene. That goes for both local Culver City restaurants and restaurants all around LA. One thing to know about Los Angeles is that there will never be a shortage of sushi restaurants nearby. A few months ago we took a look into the best sushi restaurants in Culver City. To add to that list, here are some of our favorite sushi restaurants in LA.

Studio City is home to some of the best sushi bars in the city and one of the first. Teru has been serving sushi addicts for 25 years now. The fish is fresh as can be and the crab meat is real. That said, the BSC Roll is a must. It is cheesy baked scallops on top of a California Roll. The decor is traditional, and they have an outdoor patio area. 

Yen Sushi and Sake Bar

About 25 minutes away from your Culver City apartments for rent along Ventura Blvd. is Yen Sushi. For all of our ramen fans, you have to try their udon soup. It is similar to ramen with a thicker noodle. The menu is vast, with traditional sushi and fusion rolls. By fusion rolls, we mean items like their sushi burritos. 


If money is of no concern, you’ll want to check out Asanebo. The house signature menu is incredible. There is the halibut truffle, which is fresh and seasonal plus the toro tartar. Outside the specials, the king crab claw tempura is mouthwatering. You will find this small sushi restaurant in a strip mall next to LALA’s Grill. There is no extravagant decor just out of this world sushi.

We also suggest trying out Muraya in Larchmont Village. Muraya is easily the most affordable spot on this list. They’ve got a delicious sashimi combo for $20 and a tonkatsu plate for $17.  


Last but certainly not least, our favorite. Sugarfish should ring a bell as it is the most celebrated local sushi chain in LA. Unlike all the other sushi restaurants we have mentioned, the food here pays homage to traditional Japanese cuisine. The rice is warm, the options are simple, and the menu is prix fixe. No California Rolls or Caterpillar Rolls here. If you want, you can order additional pieces of sushi and cut rolls a la carte. Price points are similar to the rest on this list. Nothing too crazy and very well worth it. You can find Sugarfish in Studio City, along San Vicente, as well as Beverly Hills.
