I enjoyed a few rolls there recently and would say that if you skip the specialty rolls and stick to the basics, prices are pretty good. The specialty rolls are a little pricey.

I've been here a few times and although I don't eat sushi they do have other dishes on the menu - the Rock Shrimp is especially good. On our last visit, it was very busy and the service was slow but usually it is better.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
