Last night, I went to Gin Sushi in Pasadena with some friends (from Esther’s recommendation). It was pretty sweet. The place received a “B” at their last Environmental Health Restaurant Rating, but the place was packed, so I didn’t feel that uneasy.
I think it’s comparable to Ichima, and definitely better than Kabuki. It wasn’t overly nice, which I think Kabuki partially gets its prices from. The prices there for simple “sushi” items were $2.80/roll. Nice. Service was pretty good, too. I had the salmon dinner, and I was quite pleased.
Try ’em out sometime!
