I completely disagree with all the high reviews from my fellow yelpers!
granted i enjoy the 3 pieces of vegetable from my ratatouille, they were so kind to place a piece of hair at the corner of my plate which i fail to noticed until everything was finished - I brought it to the waitress attn and she insisted that it was from the corn and perceived to bring out a corn to prove to me it truly was! instead of causing a scene i just let it go.. i had already devour those 3 pieces of cucumber anyways..and i have a stomach of a china man! I swear though it was a piece of booger than it would of been on like Donkey Kong!
though i enjoyed the vegetable tempura roll i got, I thought they were lacking some sort of sauce that they did not bring out to me and i was too lazy to ask for. The ambiance was small and very garage-like and I believe service was just okay.

The original chef of Sushi Roku moved on... and opened up K-Zo, in my opinion, and Michelins far better! At least 4/7 days of the week he is at the Sushi Bar 30 Years later in Los Angeles passing on Sushi and Japanese food as part of our now culture.
The freshest fish in town, with the most amount of variety. Don't get flustered, it's pretty much all good here too! From Mussel Dynamite that is soo tasty, that you end up ordering round 2, or their special fish sashimi plate of the day; you will be coming back for more!

K-ZO serves very good quality sushi at normal prices (Around $50 a person) the chef is pretty young but experienced, service is above average. Overall a very pleasant dining experience.

I like a sushi place that is authentic, fresh and owned/managed/staffed by Japanese who know what they are doing. These days, 80% of Japanese restaurants are Korean or Chinese run, and it is not the same. This place, being close to Sony Pictures, has all Japanese staff and more importantly, sushi chefs. The test of a sushi place is the quality of the maguro, hamachi, ikura, uni, or, uh the seafood! Hand rolls are an American invention to mask the true delicacy, the raw fish, and make it into some sort of strange burrito with seaweed. In the fish area, this place passed with flying colors, for us purist, it reminds me of a trendy sushiya in a nightlife district in Tokyo or Osaka. It sounds like it is on the chi-chi list of trend eaters, and perhaps was overwhelmed in their opening weeks. But I came at an off time and it was nearly empty. I sat at the bar, got to know the chef, developed an impromptu relatonship through conversation meant to find common areas to talk about, and after that we took care of each other. Hint to you sushi lovers: try to develop an experience with the people, not the food, and good gastronomy will follow.
Blue Fin $6; Kanipachi $7, Salmon $5, Ikura $5, Spanish Mackerel $6.50; small Asahi Super Dry $4.00

It can be easy to miss the restaurant as it is located right next door to a Trader Joe's. However, it's a very nice restaurant. I highly recommend sitting at the sushi bar so you can chat with the sushi chef about what's super fresh for the day. The sushi chefs are also very friendly and don't mind some chit chat. The service is amazing as drinks are filled when your glass is still half full and plates are cleared almost as soon as you are done. The sushi itself is fresh and delicious. K-Zo is a little more expensive than other sushi restaurants of the same quality, but the restaurant is beautifully decorated and has a romantic feel to it.

I used yelp to find a good sushi place in Culver City for a first date, and this place was it! I actually had a great time here, quality fresh sushi. I also made a reservation at the sushi bar and we were quickly seated. Real cool ambience, good vibes. Yellowtail, salmon, the usual. Nothing really came out to me and it is expensive. Next time I go on a date I should just go to Starbucks!
