SUGARFISH, Marina del Rey, CA

SUGARFISH Restaurant Review

: Located in the completely renovated and elegant Waterside Marina del Rey shopping plaza, SUGARFISH is the rare sushi restaurant where sushi isn't prepared within view from behind a sushi bar (that activity takes place in the kitchen). Instead, diners sit at a long wavy counter where they can admire the soothing blue and green bubbles (from the fish breathing, perhaps?) painted on the wall. There are also tables along a white wall, which reminds us of a sandy beach. Note that reservations are not taken, and you will be seated on a first come, first served basis. Choose from one of the three menus displayed on huge TV screens; they are updated daily according to the freshest catches of the day. The set menus are "Trust Me Lite" ($20), "Trust Me" ($30) and "THENozawa" ($40). There are also à la carte choices of sushi, sashimi and hand rolls. Chef Kazunori Nozawa, who is not in the kitchen here, has entrusted his chef to execute his trademark menu of simple and pure sushi, same for the rolls. Drinks include Sapporo beer, cold green tea, and four different sakés. Other locations.

The place looks awesome, very clean and modern decor. we were wondering to go inside cause it was empty, but finally we came in. I ask for the menu and the lady told me is an omakase style. 3 different choices
You can't see the sushi chefs in action, so it takes out that experience.
The staff was very attentive. prices are reasonable since tax and tip is included
I ordered the Trust Me -TWO, it was OK, fresh fish, melts in your mouth, nice presentation.
It's not my favorite place for sushi, but is a nice location, the place looks awesome, and the sushi is good. so If I'm around I'll go back. this decor is like a Pinkberry.
I like it!

Great!! The fish is FRESH.
You can see the color, the cut and everything Perfect.
I ordered the Trust me #1, the fish melted in my mouth!
Also we try the sashimi oyster OMG!!!
The server was a little slow and not to smart, cause she ask the same question several times and brought wrong some food, but she was nice.
I'll be back for sure!
The best part is that they stay open all day. So if you want to have a late-lunch there they are!
