Honestly this is by far the best sushi restaurant in the valley and very kid-friendly. Having been to many sushi restaurants not to mention the pricier ones over the hill, Ahi is ranked pretty high in my opinion. I recommend their seafood udon, grilled cod or seabass and scallop sushi.
The spicy tuna rolls were superb, as were the spicy yellow tail. I am not generally a fan of seaweed salad but it was very good. If you don't like sushi or seaweed the Chicken Katsu is also delicious. The outside patio area is shaded and cool. The staff is very friendly, and the prices are vey reasonable. All in all a great dining experience.
I first went to Ahi Sushi in 2004. Since then, I have found very few sushi restaurant that surpass the quality and poignant taste of the fish at Ahi. Their nigiri sushi is some of the tastiest and freshest fish that you can find in the valley.
Another highlight of Ahi, and probably their best kept secret, is their Omakase dinner. Ask Jimmy to take care of you, and he'll serve you some of the best food, ranging from soups and salads to cooked fishes to sashimi cuts. It's amazing how big and extensive his entree menu is. And believe me, he has more that's not on the menu, those for hardcore Japanese food lovers only.
Give it a try, under the condition that you take most of Jimmy's recommendations, and you'll be highly pleased.
Some of my favorite dishes from past experiences: scallop and asparagus baked with mayo on shell, blue crab roll, the blue fin tuna, toro, albacore, sea scallop, ankimo, live conch, soft shell crab, baked white fish with shitake mushroom and cream sauce, sashimi salad...the list goes on and on.

Great sushi and sashimi. There are some exotic dishes on the menu but the best ones are tuna tartare, shrimp tempura handroll. A real local gem.
There's an outdoor patio with tv's (no sound) so you can have a Friday night dinner and your guy won't miss the game!
This place is fabulous! The fish is fresh, and the rolls are excellent. If you are not a fan of seaweed, you will love their rolls wrapped in rice paper. I have to reccomend the Tuna Spring Roll. It is to die for. It is the only sushi restaurant I will eat at now. Once you are spoiled with the best, you cannot go back. Enjoy!!!
This intimate restaurant on a boulevard littered with sushi bars is hands down the best value for your money. Chef Jimmy Wu travels daily to the downtown fish market to bring back the freshest delicacies for your plate. The menu focuses on sushi and sashimi, but does offer some delicious cooked items for members in your party squeamish about raw fish, including Kobe beef. With a wide variety of rolls, sushi, and sahimi items, the menu is often supplemented with daily specials.
The bar offers fine sakes as well as a wonderful selection of Korean Soju vodka martinis. The chocolate martini is to DIE for, and goes wonderfully with the tempura ice cream! The decor is a delight of modernist asian with soundtracks of asian new age reminiscent more of a spa than a restaurant.
While not inexpensive, this restaurant is THE best value for its money in its class! Typically my wife and I will spend about $100 for the two of us WITH drinks AND dessert, and waddle out stuffed after an hour and a half of leisurely dining and conversation. I don't know of a better sushi restaurant in L.A.
