Hama is the essential sushi bar. The sushi chefs are old masters who probably have close to 100 years of experienced combined. That being said this place is wonderfully basic and so are most of the dishes, no bells or whistles here just amazing quality fish cut superbly. Patients is a virtue here and if it is crowded it pays to be respectful to the chefs(buying them a brew goes a long way). This is the kind of place you will comeback to if you are not a sushi poser, if you don't like it you should probably go back to sushi Raku with Lindsey Lohan and do bumps in the bath room.
PS: try the yellow tail, and the toro mmmmmmmm
My girl and I have been going to this place on a regular basis for a few years now. We've given all the other sushi joints a shot, only to come back to where we belong.
Fantastic prices, ultra-fresh fish, and just some old time sushi chefs that don't take off work except for Christmas.
Hama Sushi is the best Sushi I have had in LA. The restaurant is a sushi bar with two chefs serving the 18 or so people around the bar. The restaurant is very traditional, you order your sushi (and it is made) 1 item at a time. This could be frustrating if you are not used to this manner of eating.
