I stopped by for lunch today since this was next to my brother's office and I must say I was incredibly surprised. I had never heard of the place and solely walked in based on convenience. Initially I was skeptical of the establishment, since I had never heard of this place before, but quickly lost all reservations once my meal began. The restaurant had a fairly simple decor with some good rock/alternative music playing an appropriate volume (I believe Sublime was on when I walked first walking inside). When I arrived I asked to sit at the bar. Chef Hiro inquired if I wanted Omakase and I told him that would be fine. I enjoyed the fact that as people came in to pick up Togo orders or returned for another visit, Chef Hiro remembered them addressing them by name. While he made me sushi we had a nice discussion on the history of sushi and what his standards/goals were for his establishment. For the fish: I had Halibut, Red Snapper, Kama-toro, King crab, Scallops, Mussels, King Prawns, and Amberjack. Every fish in and of itself was incredibly fresh and Chef Hiro would tell me the location of each fish. Every piece of fish was balanced very well with sauces that Chef Hiro creates. Each of these sauces brought new flavors different from other preparations from different restaurants. The best part was that the combination of the sauces, fish, and the appropriately prepared rice would give a well-balanced palette of flavor to each piece of fish. Half-way through the meal I felt incredibly guilty and knew that I would be in trouble once I had to explain to my girlfriend where I had been without her. I will definitely be back even if its a rough trip from DTLA to Encino.
The lower star reviews are obviously harder to write, as I want to be good to people especially nice people. However, I felt a little taken advantage of for a meal that was less than mediocre. Husband and I ordered four rolls and two soups, bill came out to $76. The trust me menu was a total scam. I felt like I was being over sold on the trust me menu and since she kept insisting I said okay fine just do one roll that two people can share. She came back with three "fancy" items and charged up the bill. Toro didn't taste anything like Toro. I'm very disappointed. I'm giving it two stars because the man was nice. CIA chef? Not so much.
This place is small, but don't let that dissuade you. Everything we had was extraordinary. Just tell chef what you like and he'll create something amazing! Everything is so fresh and he knows exactly where it was harvested. Ask for the fresh wasabi. The scallops, oysters, and toro were awesome!
