Sushi Go 55 definitely merits the high marks and recognition it has received. I was there last night for dinner with my girlfriend.
We started our evening with some hot house sake and 2 pieces of blufin toro. Wow, simply amazing! They dont list the days market price of fish. When I got my bill the two pieces of toro cost $30. That is my only complain.
The meal itself was amazing. After the toro we ordered the Chirashi Jyu Sushi Box Matsu. Along with the sashimi, we also ordered a shrimp tempura roll. A huge roll at that!
The bill was right around $85 including tip. If not for the toro, I would value this restaurant as ""recommended"". But you do get what you pay for, excellent food. I'll definitely go back again. I'll just skip the toro next time.

This place has dynamite fish. I don't know how anyone finds this place because it's tucked away in this weird mall, but do yourself a favor and make the journey. I've strayed away from things like salmon over time after having much lackluster mainstream fish cuts, but this place turned my world upside-down.

the food is good here(sushi,udon) but don't order the toro(fatty tuna belly) sushi unless you wanna get ripped off!! asked the waitress how much the toro was-since it said market price-she said $7.50. i assumed $7.50 per order-but no it was $7.50 per piece i found out later after i've eaten four pieces(two order).it came out to $30 for two order of toro(4 pieces). i told her you should state prices per sushi order which is two pieces/order so in the future customers won't get pissed off and feel like they got ripped off!! she sais sorry and stated some people order one piece of toro for $7.50. seems like you can get a nice piece of steak for $30=4 small pieces of toro....

This is real sushi. We have been to hundreds of different sushi houses all over the US. This is the best. Let the chef prepare the recommended specials. Only 5% of US sushi houses have fresh eel (most have frozen) The fresh eel here is the best anywhere.

My friends and I have been going to Little Tokyo weekly for years, and the best find this summer has been Sushi Go 55 !!! The sushi lunch special is amazing. Everything is fresh, and the service is wonderful.
It is in the Mitsuwa Plaza on 3rd & Alameda. The parking is free.
It is the new favorite LT hot spot!

My 2nd experince wasn't as pleasant. Food was so-so. I was disappointed the sushi chef wasn't as exceptional as before - the care, attention, quality just wasn't there. I did have a nice conversation w/ the owner, learned about his background and family. In any event, this is an update from my last review...
Ambiance was reminiscent of my trips to Japan, service was beyond exceptional, chef was quick and friendly, and the food was the best part of the entire experience. We ordered toro, sha-ke, albacore, ama-ebi, maguro, unagi, and soft-shell crab. All fresh and delicious the fish melts in your mouth! The fresh abalone was a special that was also ordered. I tried it but found it not to my liking, much too chewy for my taste. We finished dinner with fresh fruit w/a hint of sweet plum wine.

I was skeptical that a place with such great prices could get these kinds of reviews. I am skeptical no longer. I had the eel on rice daily special, plus saba and shad sushi. The sushi was very fresh, the eel was flavorful, and the overal presentation of the food was ""aesthetically pleasing."" We were seated immediately without a reservation, though the restaurant is small - reservations are probably a good idea, espeically for a large group.

This sushi place is exceptional. My fiancee and I are always in the hunt for great sushi bars and this place is GOOD!. The fresh-est fish around. We had the fresh/live amaebi, spanish mackeral, uni, magaro, toro and a host of other fresh catch. You will not be dissapointed with this sushi spot. The sushi chefs are not loud and abnoxious, but they truly display their talents where it counts. The cut of the fish. The portions are fair. Try the specials- you will not be dissapointed. All in all, it was a great time with good service and wonderful food. Plus, you get free dessert!

The sushi is wonderful! The fish is fresh. The toro is to die for! It melts in your mouth. The ankimo was the best I've had. Fresh wasabi and very nice ginger. Uni is very fresh and has a natural sweetness to it.
The nori seaweed is crispy when you bite into their handrolls. I like their negi hama. Yellowtail Green Onion hand roll.
You must try the shiitake ebi appetizer. Shrimp and shiitake mushroom served tempura style with lemon and sea salt. Outstanding!
Great value for the quality of sushi you are getting. I've paid over $100/person at other places that is solid but not as good.
Nice place to take for first dates at the sushi bar since you are facing the chef and it is more comfortable.

One just can't throw around the word ""best"" in discribing sushi restaurants because let's face it, one can't have bad sushi and still live to tell about it. There are a lot of good sushi out there but I had the most amazing experience at Sushi Go 55. The friendly manager and staff took care of my weary, famished friend and I by selecting a flavorful seaweed salad, oysters fried to perfection, buttery selection of sushi including spicy tuna with just the right amount of heat without the goop. Needless to say, I now have found the best sushi in LA.

We are so happy to have found Sushi Go 55. There have been several other sushi restaurants in the same location over the past several years and this is the best one yet. Great service, great menu, fresh food, very nice atmosphere. We will be back again and again and again and again . . . .

Great mouthwatering sushi -- and a great selection of fresh, seasonal fish. And if you're not in the mood for Sushi, try the Japanese tapas. From the sliced conch in a light, warm broth to the vinegared crab, this might be the best Japanese food I've had in Los Angeles.
