just like normal sushi – This place is a small chain throughout LA and it is okay sushi, but pretty much the same quality sushi you can get everywhere else. It is a trendy scene to grab sushi and can accommodate large parties which is rare for lots of sushi houses, but it can get pricey VERY quickly and the sushi isn't that amazing. Also, be sure to check your bill and your credit card statement later on as well. Two of my friends have been overcharged by this place and then gave them attitude when they called Sushi Dan's to fix the charge.
Overall, a fun, trendy sushi place to take your friends but not the most authentic.
Farewell – Good bye Sushi Dan. A group us from 16 to 20 people have been going to Sushi Dan for about a year now and last week we?ve decided that we won?t go back to Sushi Dan ever again. We?ve been going there and spent hundred of dollars on birthday parties...yeas? hundreds of $$$ because we drink like a fish. But last week, a group of us went there for birthday party and guess what?? Food came out slow, servers were rude and addition to that drinks were terrible.. I mean TERRIBLE. Who would want to sit and drink warm Martinis? A.M.F taste nothing like A.M.F. Sorry to say that both the quality of food and drinks went down hills. This is not the first time it has happened to us. Not worth going back.
Also be careful about the tipping. Severs will make you pay double the gratuity if you don?t pay attention to it. Last time I paid with my CC and sever didn?t show me the breakdown until I asked for it. What a place.
Check your Bill – Not a bad place to have a drink, they were decent.
But for the food go somewhere else. Sushi was not over priced about $12 a roll, but i spent the night heaving in my toilet that was not what i was looking for, all i had was tuna sashimi and a spicy tuna roll, nothing too exotic.
the real thing that got me is we were a party of 2 and our bill came to $85, not cheep but still not the most expensive that i had seen. i paid by CC and when the check came to sign they did not have the itemized bill, they kept that. i like to just double the tax for tip, lazy what can i say. but then i asked for it and 5 min later they brought it back out. low and behold they had automatically added an 18% gratuity. i thought that i was being generous with my 15% with the service that was being served at a glacial pace.
All and all had i not asked for the itemized bill i would have tipped them another 15%.
CHECK YOUR BILL if you dine here.
Best for the price, anywhere! – Sushi Dan is the best for the price...or for any price in my opinion, although it differes in the style of restaurant and food from say, Koi. Rolls are huge and fresh. Sushi and sashimi are excellent quality. Go to the one on ventura if you want a more low key vibe. Great place to kick back a huge amount of saki.
Cozy with good sushi – I'm not typically into sushi (Midwesterner still adopting this Cali favorite) but this place was pretty good. My friend ordered the items including Tuna, Spicy Tuna, California Roll, and Whitefish -- the Spicy Tuna was great, the rest were good/average. The Whitefish was a little hot. Overall though, a good meal and attentive service with regular drink refill stop-bys. Only when it came to bill time did the waiter seem to disappear, but that might have been cuz we were in active conversation.
The atmosphere is great for a Tuesday night. Quiet, with well-spaced patrons.
Overall, I'd recommend.
GREAT FOOD... HORRIBLE SERVICE!!! – I went here the first time for my dad's birthday... their specialty plates and sashimi were excellent. Our whole family are sushi fanatics and haven't found a place this great in a long time. However, I've gotta say that the service was horrible. I can't fault the restaurant for this because I'm sure it's only this one waiter. One would think that if the waiter didn't speak english too well he wouldn't mind repeating the order. But No. He seemed annoyed. When he did repeat it, of course he got it wrong. Then when the food came out, he still got it wrong! There must have been some mix up with a different table because he kept bringing the wrong stuff. Of course there was no apology! At one point he came to our table with a glass of wine and couldn't get it through his head that no one had ordered it. At the end of the meal we were still quite satisfied however felt that the waiter did not deserve a good tip... but of course there was already a 18% charge. Now thats about a $50 tip for incompetence!!! I only hope that others have complained and something will be done about that guy.... EXCELLENT FOOD THOUGH!!
Fantastic..! – This place rocks. The sushi is delicious (always fresh). The atmosphere is fun and lively and it's very affordable.
BEST SUSHI AND FRIENDLY STAFF – I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!THEY HAVE THE BEST SUSHI ESPECIALLY THE "DANNY ROLL" ITS BAKED SUSHI WITH CRAB ADVOCADO AND CUCUMBER MMMMMM!!!!!!
THE MISO SOUP AND ENDAMAE IS THE BEST IVE TASTED!!!!!!!!BEEN THERE A COUPLE OF TIMES, ITS NOT THAT EXPENSIVE EITHER...ONE NIGHT I WENT THERE WITH A COUPLE OF FRIENDS AT 10:45PM ON SUNDAY AND THEY STILL LET US COME IN AND EAT WAY PAST THE CLOSING TIME OF 11PM AND THEY WERE SO FRIENDLY AND WILLING TO SERVE US, EVEN THOUGH THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN CLOSING!!!ANYONE THAT LOVES SUSHI LIKE I DO SHOULD TRY THIS PLACE!!!I HAVE NEVER BEEN WROND WHEN REFERRING ONE TO FOOOD LOL!!
horrible experience – I normally don't leave bad reviews even when I don't like the restaurant.....I actully like sushi dan.....my boyfriend and I make it a point to go about once a month. But after the last visit we may never go again....the food was good as always, but the service was horrible....we went on a sunday (first time going on sunday), arrived around 10:00 and sat at the sushi bar as usual.....ordered slowly as usual, and at 10:50 we place another order and was told that kitchen closes at 11:00, so we ordered like 4 more sashimi items....at 11:10 they brought the check and we were pretty much kicked out. Our tab was $160.00 (which is avg. check for us there) and we left food behind because we were very annoyed.....sorry, but our days at the dan is done......too bad...i really like your food...
My long running favorite – I love trying out different sushi restraunts, and I tend to think the price should reflect the taste and quality. However, I have not found a sushi spot that can beat The Dan. Just good food.
