I have been going to Sushi Karen for a few years now. The food is pretty good. But, the service there has been going down. Sometimes they get too busy and there is only 1 waitress who can't handle the amount of customers. Also,

Top grade sushi. I know for a fact that Toshi (owner, head sushi man) buys top grade fish only from the same market as Matsuhisa and Nobu. His location allows cheaper rent compared to Beverly Hills, therefore, the discount is passed along

The atmossphere is really cool, everyone is really friendly but that isn't even close to the best part about this place. The sushi is so yummy! The combo's are awesome and way affordable.

Sushi Karen has some very fresh fish and other great Japanese food. Try some of their signature rolls, like the Tiger's Eye. YUMMMMMMMMY!! The owner/chef was very nice, he asked our names then introduced himself, "Tom Cruse," said the older Japanese man behind the counter.

It is agreat place to meet friends and have some sake. The atmosphere is confortable and the decor does not drag you down like a lot of japanese reastaurants. The food is good and the prices are right.

Located across from Best Buy, Sushi Karen's been around a while, yet there are never many customers around. You won't have long to wait, but you won't find anything memorable, either. A decent meal, but nothing spectacular.

Sushi Karen is a very nice, family-run place with good quality fish. We've had a couple of very straightforward meals here: you won't find dozens of strange rolls on the menu, but then it's not a place for purists either. It's just a very pleasant, well-run sushi bar.

This is one of the best sushi restaurants in the city in my opinion. We eat here a couple of times a week and love it. Highly recommend trying some of the unusual specials that Toshi offers. This place is named after the head sushi chef

I almost don't want to write a review so this place doesn't get crowded...but for the better of mankind, here we go: I have eaten at almost all high end sushi restaurants...from the cliffs of Croatia to the trendy LA sushi, I have yet to

This is definately the best sushi I have ever had. The service is great, staff is friendly. Toshi knows exactly what he is doing and does it well every time. Now that I have become a regular customer Toshi is quite generous. The rolls

Sushi Karen is simply the best! My husband and I, who consider ourselves "sushi snobs" frequent this restaurant at least once a week. Toshi, the chef, is incredibly talented. The seaweed salad is delicious, the tuna and halibut carpacciao

This sushi place was okay. You enter and have to go to the back to get seated. The waitress was kinda rude and when we she spilled some sauce on the table...she never cleaned it up. Instead, she kept setting plates over it to clean it
