When I first walked in the restaurant smelled fishy. When I relayed this to someone who knew about Sushi, I was told that meant the fish wasn't fresh. Well, anyways, I asked for a seat in the back of the restaurant so I wouldn't have to smell the fish. I ordered a salad that had chicken in it. The food was mediocre. I would not run back to the restaurant. If someone really wanted to go there, I would go with them. By the way, when I walk in Musashi's in Northridge, the Sushi bar doesn't smell fishy.
