The food was the best I’ve had anywhere. But for $300 pp, one expects better than a strip mall and fluorescent lights on a sushi bar. My only complaint is to go either way—either enhance the ambiance and keep the prices as is or lower the prices so that you feel the experience was fair to all sides.

Everything was exquisite and the experience, service, and atmosphere was like being transported to Japan for an evening. Chef Yohei was super nice and his knife skills are a show in itself to watch while eating dinner. I cannot remember everything we ate, but it was phenomenal and some of the best sushi I've ever eaten.

This was probably one of the worst dining experiences I've had for the price we paid. Service was chaotic while we were there. Even though it was an omakase menu, there was no progression to the meal at all. What we started off with, the diners beside us ended their meal with. It just felt very awkward since it was bar seating and we could see what everyone else was being served. At one point we waited 35 minutes for our next course. The servers were confused as to which courses we already had, and which ones were still waiting on. Unacceptable for such a highly rated Japanese restaurant. This restaurant did not live up to our expectations. And at $300 a person, I could have gotten better service at another local Japanese restaurant. The food itself was okay. Fish was fresh, but we've definitely had much better quality at this price point. Overall, very disappointed.

We had a great time, the hostessses were showing us images of all the types of fish we were eating. The food itself was an experience on its own. Each night was a work of art, that’s what I can say, pure art. We’re very happy to have gone there.

We celebrated my sisters 40th birthday at Sushi Ginza Onadera in LA. Yohei Matsuki (the master Itamae i.e Executive Chef) and his team offer a truly world class Edomae sushi experience. This Michelin Star level establishment has taken it’s art form from “Ginza to the World” and has 11 outposts in 7 cities around the world. The Edomae tradition is said to have been started in the early 1800s by Hanaya Yohei, a sushi chef in Edo (present-day Tokyo). I found it very interesting that our Itamae shares a name with the man who invented Edomae sushi. The modernist Yo and Co. designed space is stunning in it’s simplicity and also in it’s details.

You’re immediately made to feel welcome by the staff. We started with a bottle of Junmai Daiginjo sake while we watched the staff preparing first courses. I’ve been fortunate to frequent Tokyo for business over the last 20 years or so. We never grow tired of watching these master Shokunin practice their craft.

At Onadera all of your senses are working to enhance the overall experience. The subtle aromas, perfectly balanced flavors, and artful presentations are out of this world. It’s hard to pick favorites in terms of the individual items. The meal is like a symphony of flavors and textures where the whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts. A lot of the sauces are 200-300 yr old Edo recipes incorporating Sake. The Ginza Onadera team age their fish as well which yields more complex flavors.

Some highlights for me included: Ankimo, Aged Toro courses, Hairy Crab, Aji, Bonito

The Omakase is $300 per person or $400 for a course that includes more special items. Expensive but there’s value in the fact that you’d have to fly to Japan to get this level of sushi. And it’s a long meal at about 2.5 hours so you can stretch out the enjoyment.

For true Edomae lovers Sushi Ginza Onadera is a must. We had an incredible experience. Thanks Yo-chan and team! A really special meal and night out with loved ones.

Wonderful experience if you want to try an authentic sushi restaurant in LA! Everything is prepared right in front of you by an experienced Japanese chef in the most traditional way. Only top quality products are used to prepare each meal, a picture of the fish used is even shown to you after each set. Staff is lovely and attentive.

There are some amazing fish that did give me the wow factor. However, after 20 to 22 small courses.... I still wasn’t full from dinner. :( and I’m a small girl. I would say for the $ of the meal, the portion can be a bit more! :)

Sushi Ginza Onadera is unlike any Omakase I have had in my travels. The executive chefs coordinate with the main shop in Ginza District Tokyo on the atmosphere, presentation and available fish globally. Each bite is carefully prepared, of the highest quality, served with care, backed up by great service, and fantastic sake choices. When you are ready for the ultimate high dining sushi experience visit Onadera.
