I have been to the best sushi places in the US, from NYC to Vegas, and Kazu in Studio City consistently ranks up there on the top of my list. Everything that I order there has been very good and fresh. It is a small, hole in the wall without the fancy decor, but if you are a sushi lover, this is a MUST try. Everyone that I have taken to Kazu has raved about it and end up taking their spouses back with them. It is not cheap, but also not the most expensive, and you definitely get what you pay for in this case. Everything from the monkfish liver to the melt in your mouth toro is delicious. I have also found them to be very accommodating. My fiance has a gluten allergy, and once I mentioned that to the waitress, the chef prepared a special plate for her with that in mind.
Pros: Fresh and great every time.
Cons: Parking is limited.
