It was my birthday and our son who lives a walking distance to the place recommended Shunji for a very "special" occasion, he said. Our family had a great time! The head chef had a picture with us ev...en. Everyone was so nice. The sushi was very fresh and so delicious! I had the best and the first tomato tofu. See More

Literally the best of the best of the best! I have never had such great sushi even in Japan. This is ART! Thank you Shunji, Yuko and all staff’s hospitality always. We appreciate it very much.

Be a good eater. First, drop in a few times alone for lunch. Sit at the bar. Watch. Listen. Maybe ask for something but be sure to indicate the size of your appetite and go-with-the-flow. Second, in g...ood time ask when would be a good time to bring a friend or two to sit at the bar one night. Take the time and night offered. Three, you are now in omakase land. Shunji understands the art of less-is-more. See More

It has been an extraordinary experience we'll never forget! We were there with our son , daughter in law and a couple of friends last September and took back to Italy the flavours and unique images o...f the best Japanese food we have ever tasted!!! And the sake...makes you hear angels singing! All this not to mention the kindness and professionality of all the people working there and "in primis" the Owner - Chef !!!Hope to go there again on our next visit to L.A. See More

Best sushi in L.A. Listen, learn and eat. You will not be disappointed. This place is amazing. It's small so best to call ahead and make reservations for your group. 5 stars.
