This might just be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for sushi lovers. Built in what was once a railroad loading dock, the sleek, minimalist dining room at R23 offers only the freshest and most divine sushi in town. It might not have the heat of some entertainment industry-favored spots, but you won't be disappointed in the excellent quality of the seafood. Traditional delicacies presented in a new garb is what tempts and delights the palate. Some secrets are best kept to yourself.
The best lunch I ever had while sitting on cardboard! LOL
I just finished lunch at R-23. The décor was beautiful, nested in the middle of an even more beautiful, high energy, arts district of Downtown Los Angeles. As I entered I could see three chefs at the sushi bar. I was greeted by who appeared to be the owner/manage. No sashimi for me today; I’m keeping it really basic! I started with a nice fresh salad, followed by soup, fresh avocado roll, the finally was the fried shrimp with the sticky white rice! Everything was delicious from start to finish. Next time, I will try the infamous crab salad…because there is sure to be a next time.
Well, I don't know where you guys get your SUSHI, but this restaurant has one of the freshest sushi I ever ate. I have been to many sushi bars, from Ktown to Westwood, to anywhere.....They have a great selection and it doesn't hurt to go there on the weekends, who knows you may bump into George Clooney.....
Crazy location, but:
The food is just fantastic. The room is austere, but beautiful - very nice atmosphere (especially after the loading dock entrance). Attentive and pleasant staff
R-23 is pricey, but well worth it for some of the best sushi in CA
R-23 is probably one of the harder restaurants to find, but once you do, it will be well worth the effort. The sushi wizards at the bar are friendly, and experts in their craft. The fish is always super fresh, and of highest quality.
This may be one of the hardest restaurants to find in LA but once you find it you will be back many times. This place has many exotic and authentic and super fresh sushi and sashimi selections not found in many other sushi restaurants in LA. Great ambiance too!
