Nagao can come across as grumpy... but he's always polite - he's just focused on the sushi.

The sushi is well prepared, and travels really well for takeout, which can't be said about a lot of places. There is a good balance on the menu,

Pros: lunch is underrated, great variety of salads for sushi place

Cons: grumpy Nagao?

DEFINITELY NOT! We had been to Nagao's 3 x's in the past. It wasn't the greatest sushi place but it's wasn't bad either. We decided to go again on Saturday afternoon even though we typically go to Hide. Unfortunately, we did not realize

Cons: Horrible customer service!

Nagao serves up some of the best sushi in town -- not only very fresh and clean-tasting, but delicious. It's been a great neighborhood spot for years. Excellent service. Thanks Nagao.

I would like to give this place another try before I take it off my list. I take my sushi very seriously, as should you - after all, it is raw fish! My visit to Nagao was not very memorable. The service was decent enough and the fish was

Pros: clean

This is a great place for some good sushi at reasonable prices with great service. It is pretty small but when you have the sushi you will want to come back for more!!

Pros: Food, Service, Value

Cons: Not enough speciality rolls

You don't go to Nagao for the location or service...both aren't so great. But the fresh fish ia the best you will have in LA! Their rolls are large and hardly have any rice. They have a series of soybean paper rolls that I highly

Pros: Best Sushi in Town

Cons: The space + Sevice

I would go back to this place regularly just for the fresh yellowtail. These are some of the biggest cuts of sushi you'll find in the westside, and you certainly pay for what you get. The quarters are very very cozy, but could leave some

Nagao is a great local sushi restaurant. While NOT having the best sushi I have ever tasted, the quality is good and is equal to or a little better than the price. However, the walk-in wait time is why i prefer this place. If you are

Pros: No wait, good food, intimate atmosphere

Cons: they don't take reservations (i guess this could be a pro in my case)

This is my boyfriend's favorite place. He comes here at least twice a month with his friends.\r
I like it because food is great. Fresh sushi, not fishy at all. Although the place is small and a bit crampy, the food is to die for.

This is a great place for a small group. The food taste wonderful. I have been to many sushi restaurants and this is one of the best. The only problem is that many people know it so it gets very crowded and the waiting can be up to 30

Pros: sushi, atmosphere, service

Cons: always crowded

I don't care how good the sushi is. It's fine, but the Westside has literally more sushi places than McDonald's, and they're all decent. Nagao, then, is hardly worth the trouble.

Pros: Convenient, Decent Sushi

Cons: Terrible Service, Ripoff, Crowded

This place definitely does not have the "scene" of some of the other high profile LA sushi joints and Nagao himself may remind some of the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld, but it is my absolute favorite sushi in all of LA. Must haves include

Pros: Delicious Food, Inexpensive, Great Service

Cons: Sometimes Crowded

My absolute favorite for fresh & interresting specialty rolls! Sometimes crowded because it is small it is worth the wait. I love that the rolls can be wrapped in soybean paper or cucumber on the outside as an alternative to seaweed and much easier tobite through. Excellent salads and reasonable lunch specials that include a salad and your choice of three rolls. You can also request that the crab for your rolls be made without mayonaise if you want a more reduced fat roll.

Nagao is my go to Sushi on the Westside. The wait can be unbearable (yet always worth it) at times. I recommend going at 7pm or after 9 pm. Sit at the bar at Nagao's station for exceptional dining. His very dry humor and phenomenal
