As other reviewers have noted, Asanebo has excellent sushi and service. Even considering the fact that LA is littered with high end sushi restaurants, Asanebo holds its own, and won't disappoint. Aesthetically the restaurant is nice enough, though it won't win any design awards. It's...More

One of the best Japanese cuisine in LA. And not stuck up at all. If you like Japanese you need to go! And they have great sushi. Anyone who knows Japanese food will appreciate the distinction.

We come here once every couple of months. The food is simply outstanding. Highest quality fish and beautiful preparations. Atmosphere is perhaps not top notch, but as good as or better than most other sushi restaurants. You will be focused on the food anyway!

Despite the unassuming location, the food is of superior standard. Every dish in the pageant of flavour was stunning.
