I moved to Van Nuys from Sherman Oaks a few months ago and have found pretty good neighborhood places for everything but sushi. I’m not looking for anything too high-end. I can go to Shunji or Kiriko, which are not far from my office, if I want to splurge, but I want to find something near my house where I can take friends or my parents who like non-traditional rolls but also want decent quality fish.
So are there any reliable sushi places in this area? I’m thinking of places between the 101 and Sherman Way and between Sepulveda and Lankershim?
On a related note, what is the word on Kaiju on Ventura at Woodman?
I’m going to add something to my original post. Please don’t respond with restaurants in Encino, Tarzana, Woodland Hills, or Chatsworth. I know the sushi restaurants in those areas extremely well. This request really is for places in the targeted area. I’m trying to find a place that is only a 5 to 10 minute drive that would be a good neighborhood sushi bar.
