I'm downgrading my review for Arashi due to a VERY poor choice the restaurants owners just made - they obliterated Happy Hour, which used to be one of the best in the Los Angeles area. I first started coming to Arashi in college with friends, and introduced my boyfriend to the restaurant on our first date nearly three years ago.... More

Tried a few pieces of sushi, a bunch of common rolls. Some tempura. Sat at the Sushi bar on a Sunday evening with a party of three. Service was utterly without personality. It was as though everyone was just going through the motions. Fish was fine. Tea was good. Wouldn't go back.

Arashi Sushi, in short, no longer is what it once was. My girlfriend and I have been coming to this restaurant pretty regularly for three years. In fact, we had our first date here, and so the restaurant has a special place in our hearts. We’ve come here so often that most of the servers know our names. Unfortunately, Arashi... More

Great service, but it's just pretty much your average sushi place. No super creative or fun menu items, just the basics. Atmosphere is very urban, sterile feeling. Prices are average as well. If you are hitting an event at Staples, and craving basic Sushi, this one works, but I'm sure there are better places out there.

Ate there twice, service was always quick and food fresh. I can't complain. If you go there after 5pm, some of the menu prices are discounted which is nice. I didn't try all of the sake offerings, but the peach flavored one was good. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quick bite. Also, keep in mind... More

Best Sushi I have tried. Really greet selection. Highly recommend Tony favourite the Lemon Roll and crunchy Shrimp (I didn't try but a favourite of my restaurant buddies!). Reasonable and great service! Will return here from London one day....

During our stay in Los Angeles, we visited Arashi Sushi twice. Seawood salad, Edamame, Sushi, Rolls etc. were very good. We liked it very much. The price is not that high. So in our view it was a very good price/food ratio. Sometimes, it was a little bit loud, but it depends on the audience.

I went before an Adele concert. When we got there the restaurant was not too busy. We put in all our food orders right as the restaurant started to fill up. Finally someone came around to take our drink order but mid way through he walked away. 5 minutes later our waiter came to take our drink order which we... More

Arashi is one of my favorite neighborhood spots. It is not fancy or expensive, which I very much enjoy. The fish is very good and the service is always timely and accurate. They have a great selection of rolls (including some with no rice) and have recently added some new grilled options as well. The spicy tuna on crispy rice... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
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 in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
