Great food and good happy hour solid choice!
Yaki-Tori (grilled chicken) was probably either boiled or steamed, which was a bit disappointing flavor-wise and less appealing, although the taste was okay.
A friend of mine had to return the spicy sushi as he made a bad selection when he had stomach problems that night. However, a chef or a server did not give us any fuss about that. Thank you for the courtesy.
Innovative Japanese food without being cliche, I really enjoyed everything I ate. The traditional sushi rolls were good, and the "chef's selections" were super delicious. The seaweed salad was one of the best I've had! The nice clean interior was matched with good service.
The fish was the star of the show, as it should be! We had a sashimi appetizer, a variety of nigiri, and the spicy tuna on crispy rice; it was all on point. The Toro and Sake were butter, melt in your mouth deliciousness! We were extremely happy with our choice and highly recommend Arashi if you’re attending an event or just in the neighborhood. We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in town!
Delicious food and wonderful and fast service!
No Frills but all the excitement you need in the food! Very fresh, great quality rolls. I prefer rolls with no to extremely little sauce so that I can tast the food. This place gets it. Trust me you will not be disappointed
The food was delicious, the fish very fresh - melt in your mouth. Seaweed salad was perfect. The staff was very attentive without being obtrusive. 3 of us had dietary restrictions (1 is allergic to capsaicin so no spicy & 2 were gluten free) and they satyed very aware of that in their preparation, even providing tamari (a gluten free soy sauce substitute). Great value for the quality and quantity. 3 of the group had cooked dishes - all good - but the fish dish was so delicious - the best of the 3 (chicken and,beef were,the,other,2)
My second time at Arashi Sushi and both times the food was amazing. Staff is friendly and attentive. Will definitely be going back again.
We had a great pre-Staples concert experience on my daughter's 8th birthday. Service was friendly and knowledgeable, and food was much better than the average Japanese restaurant at this price point. This restaurant was so much better than the Japanese place at LA Live, which is way more expensive. At the end of our meal, they thoughtfully brought my daughter a fried mochi ice cream birthday cake for the able to share. We'll definitely be back!
The restaurant is across the street from Staples Center. We took the Metro there and it was a short walk to the restaurant. The food was good and the restaurant was clean. Casual dress.
The fish quality was really good! Chilean seabass on the skewers and the Schecuan Tuna dishes were simply awesome and very flavorful!! Do eat here if u r attending an event at the staples or microsoft theater..
Home run happy hour... always fresh fish and great service.
Took my Goddaughter here before a concert at Staples Center, a five-minute walk away, and we loved it! Happy hour prices were low, sashimi specials were delicious, literally melted in the mouth like butter, delicate, complex flavors, friendly easy atmosphere, not stuffy. We made reservations through Open Table and had a reserved table waiting for us. The best in the house. We sat and chatted for quite a while after we finished eating, with no pressure from wait staff to move on. And a notable value, especially right next door to one of DTLA's priciest restaurants.
Pleasantly surprised. The baked lobster roll...with real crab...perfection. Everything was very good. This is our new go-to when we have a Staples event to attend!
Excellent fresh sushi st reasonable prices convenient to Staples or LA Live. This is a hidden gem
The happy hour prices are amazing. The sushi rolls are delicious and well prepared.
Sat at the counter and had a feast.
Need to try this place during happy hour well worth it.
Food was really good just smaller than I expected. Waiter was pretty attentive. Clean. I would definitely go back.
They had a great happy hour and we all really enjoyed the food. Service was awesome and prices were more than fair.
Wonderful experience. Easy to make a reservation. Be aware that they do not take Discover.
Really nice lunch deal, accommodated to us during the lunch rush
Friendly, great food.
Good place for sushi. I really liked the sushi moriawase
Always a reliable stop before a trip to Staples Center!
My friends and I are steady guests for years. The food is excellent, the service is great. We love the restaurant. It's easy to park with validation. A bit noisy, but definitely a restaurant to be recommended.
Wonderful food beautifully presented. Very good value for excellent sushi!
This is a great, smaller restaurant. Had a friendly hostess seat us, a less friendly, but capable waitress helped us. Overall, a nice experience.
Frequently eat there before Lakers games
Quick and consistently good sushi
Delicious food and service. Sushi was great, as were the skewered meats and fish. Happy Hour is a good deal, and reservations are a must.
Excellent service and food. Good size sushi rolls with perfect amount of fish. Awesome garlic edamame. Table was ready right when we got to the restaurant. My go to sushi spot before going to any LA Live/Staples Center event.
Great service, delicious food. Trust the employees’ recommendations. You won’t go wrong.
Great specials and happy hour!
Thank you Arashi! We had a great time with a large group. Two tables of 8 people each. Just a great way to connect with our friends while sharing a wonderful meal!
The customer service was outstanding and the food was delicious! I highly recommend coming here if you are craving sushi and want to indulge right before a live sporting event. It's a quick 5-minute walk to Staples Center or LA Live. The options were plentiful and the waiters/waitresses were very helpful and prompt. The Happy Hour is very generous as it runs from 5pm-8pm. They have a specialty sushi menu, which I found to be my favorite. Everything was fresh and outstanding in taste and quality.
Great food! Toro belly sushi and seared Chilean sea bass robata-Yaki was off the charts excellent. Loved my salmon skin salad and low carb options. We ate like kings.
Great food ok service. Will be back bbq roll is to die for.
The team at Arashi accommodated our group of 19. The maki rolls were fresh, creative and delicious. Will definitely go back when in the area.
Excellent as usual. Bluefin belly sushi Was amazing the one with the Robo-Yaki Chilean sea bass appetizers.
Had a lovely lunch and really enjoyed the food. The lunch specials are great! Lots of variety. I like the crunchy shrimp rolls and udon. Also loved that my table was ready for me when I arrived. :)
found these guys on ppen table. reasonable prices, excellent service. went before game at Staples Center. Yummy baked lobster roll
If u have been to asia/ japan, u wouldnt want to visit here. Food quality is below average and the shrimp tempura was not fresh. And hence for the quality, its a tad overpriced
