I've known this restaurant since the 80's. Iwa's sushi is good and reasonable.

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 for the fancy rolls- good value. The atmoshere is pseudo japanese mixed with low rider and reggae music. The crowd is not pretty but they are as real as they come. Lots of regulars, comfortable surroundings-free parking. Wait on a weekedn-walk in on a weeknight

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 fun atmousphere.

I've lived in Whittier for years now, but found out about Sushi of the East from TripAdvisor (thanks guys!)

To say I enjoyed it is an understatement. Since my first visit three weeks ago, I have returned more than 7 times.

The atmosphere is great...especially on weekend evenings. Great music...very loud! Lots of local people enjoying themselves. It's the ONLY sushi bar I've been to in the surrounding area which has that relaxed, fun feeling.

The food is GREAT! So fresh and quick. Even the standard sushi combinations have a little twist that makes them Iwa's. They have the the old faves as well as inventive rolls and traditional dinners. The Salvador Roll has salmon and avocado roll covered in thin mango with chili paste drizzle. Delish!

And the price is EXTREMELY nice. Under $5 for almost all sushis and rolls are also affordable.

Visiting Iwa has now become a weekly routine for my and members of my social circle. Can't be beat!
