The Sushi here is very tasty, above average, I used to be an uber regular here, but I started going to nearby Joi sushi and didnt rate this place higher for the following reasons, the service by the waitresses, was often rude(especially by longtime main waitress and rumored wife of owner) and frustraitingly slow.

Named because the waitresses are as cold as the fish,,if only as fresh.. But the sushi is ample and adequate. This is a cultural anomoly. One of their big sellers is the Salvdor roll- a common Japanese name. IT's great-The sushi chefs are local homies- but very good at their craft. The sushi is priced 3.50 for basics to -9.00... More

We've been eating at Sushi From East forever, and Iwa has always been great!! From some of his unique items (like the Tiger's Eye roll and Sashimi Coctail) to his own desserts, everything is perfect. You need to trust your sushi chef more than you trust your doctor, and Iwa's items are always fresh and good, and served in a... More

It's the ONLY... More

The scallop mushrooms are to die for..the friendly atmosphere makes the dining experience a joy and the food is excellent. Iwa is a wonderful host. If you love Sushi then don't miss out on the opportunity to eat here, you won't be sorry.

Whittier is not really known for much perhaps only Richard Nixon went to high school and college there. But a true gem in the sushi genre exists on the East side of this quiet town. Sushi joints come a dime a dozen and Whittier has about a half a dozen. There is nothing typical of this sushi bar. There is... More
