OC Weekly's Description

Ikko Kobayashi has been called a sushi magician, but the man is really a mad
scientist, grafting disparate ingredients like black truffles and uni together into creations that come alive in your mouth. Whatever you do, do not ask for soy sauce or wasabi. Ikko's experiments are precisely sauced and seasoned so you don't have to.

    If you like "Freestyle Japanese Cuisine" this is the place for you. Try the eggplant tempura with spicy tuna on top.

    Sit at the bar. The sushi chef loves food and loves his craft.

    I go whenever I have the chance! Impeccably fresh & delicious food, beautiful presentation and flavors that explode in your mouth!! One of my favorite Japanese restaurants of all time.

    The monk fish liver was delicious! It's served very differently from any other sushi bar I've been to. Lighter than most, cucumber was a nice touch and the sauce was perfect!

    Truly unlikely. The best sushi of my life came from Ikko, a restaurant in the same strip mall as a dive bar and a sex shop.

    Sushi omakase was pretty phenomenal. You get a huge variety of nigiri, at about $4/piece on average.
