I came in solo on a weekend around 1:45p.m. Most sushi places, everybody in the place shouts a happy greeting to see you walk in. This place, the older asian female waitress started to groan, oh, it's so late... Then she ushered me to the sushi bar without asking if I wanted a table or not, and right away asks me incomprehensibly and brashly what kind a drink I want. I asked her to repeat, and she yells Drink! and then if I wanted all you can eat or if I wanted to order piece by piece and I say I want to order and she cuts me off without explanation. She came back, slammed my Coke down and refused to help me anymore, just telling me to order from the boys in the center sushi island. The sushi chef, Mike, was really nice and offered to explain their system. You sit at the bar for one hour and can eat anything on a limited special menu, including soup, salad, appetizers, sushi, and cooked foods, for a flat fee. I asked for that and began having some really nice food: shumai, teriyaki, salad, miso, rolls, nigiri... I just had to make eye contact, and Mike immediately asked me for my next order. 45 minutes later, the original waitress begins kicking people out. They have a break and close from 3 to 5, I think. She also prevented people from coming in after 2:30, saying too late, too late, waving them away... I realize this is a clue and signal for my check. Mike was nice enough to ask her to switch the check from piece by piece to all you can eat flat rate, but she begins complaining loudly in Korean that she didn't expect some fat samoan lady to eat $40 worth of food and put her in the poorhouse (I don't look Korean, but am actually not Samoan, but half Korean, understood, and was thoroughly humiliated). I actually paid them the original price, and iciliy told them the overage was tip for Mike only, then left. The food was great and the prices were good, but the service is horrible and there are plenty of other sushi places in Northridge.
Pros: Good food, fair price
Cons: Rudest woman ever rules the place
