Yeah here's my tip; don't go there. So I took my family went to Mia Sushi. To be fair, I've eaten there before and the prices seemed high for basically mehh food. And it's loud for a sushi place but it was okay
Today we went in early for dinner. It was still light out and there were plenty of tables available indoors and outdoors. We asked for a table for 3 and the guy said 5 minutes. We looked at each other then at all the open tables but we we so starved we just sat down, figuring we could do 5 minutes. 15 minutes later they sat another group of people that came in after us. Granted, they didn't have a kid but I looked at my wife and she was already "abusing Mia Sushi on Yelp". A guy came over and asked us if we had been helped and we said yeah but he was supposed to seat us a while ago. He said he would check and absolutely did not check then meandered over to clean up a few tables.
Anyway, my wife and I started asking each other questions like are they racist? But I was like why would they be racist against asians in a sushi restaurant? The staff was mostly hispanic. I thought maybe I wasn't dressed properly then I saw mostly people in t-shirts. We realized it had to be that we have a kid and it must be upsetting for such a hipster place. The thing is, it was way before the dinner rush and when all the poseurs come in. Anyway, Mia Sushi is dead to me and I hope they go out of business.
Best food in town
Food is amazing. Every time I come here, I feel like I never want to leave. Very chic atmosphere with a relaxing mood.
The service is great and the staff really does a terrific job at taking care of you.
The appetizers are delicious.
Theres plenty of places to park: theres a parking lot across the street and a parkin garage up the street within walking distance.
Most of the time I find myself looking at my watch waiting for the food to come, but here I was so entertained with the fun atmosphere that I was pleasantly surprised when my food arrived
Lame, Expensive – I'd stay away from this place. The prices out of control for the quality of sushi here, and the sushi itself is poor quality. It's got some lame fusion thing going on and they've done a poor job at actually fusing anything. Their dishes are often a mix of competing flavors that really provide only dissonance for your palate.
The only thing that this place has going for it is the ambience.
For those of you that "LOVE" this place, really? where are you from, ohio? get out to some other sushi places in LA. As a trained sushi chef i'm insulted by the some of the high ratings of this place.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this restaurant! – This is not your usual Japanese restaurant. It is 5 steps up! The food is fresh, delicious and served in an unusally tasty manner. The servers and staff are helpful and friendly and definately aim to please. We love this place even tho it is a little pricey, it is so worth it. And it is in our neighborhood of Eagle Rock!
delicious... – Kazu (I think thats the way his name is spelled) the head sushi chef, is the best in town. I dont even have to tell him what I want - with just a few visits, he already knows what I want. And if I am feeling adventurous, I let him suprise me with one of his special on the fly creations. This is my favorite local spot. I have brought in a few dates here and they were impressed with it all.
Suprisingly GREAT! – I reluctantly suggested this place to my girlfriends for our girl's night out after reading a few negative comments on this page but felt compelled to go because I have heard that this place is actually good. I'm one to draw my own opinion. I'm glad I did! The food was delicious, the service was very attentive, and vibe was cool and no the music wasnt too loud - it was actually at just the right level. We will definitely go back.
How does Anybody Eat Here? – I am confused by all the back-and-forth reviews on this place, because my two trips here have both been gawd-awful. I just can't imagine any situation where this place doesn't just stink. I went once with my wife and found it to be a total let down. The sushi was no where near as good as what we're used to having either in Studio City or in Pasadena, and the atmosphere was lousy to boot. The music was too loud (we're NOT an old couple, by the way) and the whole place was just so cheesy. The second trip was against my better judgment, but was with a large group so I was out-voted. First off, NEVER go here with a large group. The waiters can't typically handle a table of 2, let alone 8 or 10. The service was atrocious, things were constantly forgotten, missed, over charged, dropped, etc. Furthermore, when one of my friends politely made note of this to the owner, he was completely unapologetic, claiming they were just busy that night... yeah our table plus one other. The place was dead! Regardless, the sushi was still gross, swimming in mayo, and everything was overpriced anyway. Take my advice, and skip this place if you're looking for a nice night out with for 2 or for 20.
yummy in my tummy – First I'd like to say I dont know where the previous people think they went to I had the exact opposite experience! The vibe was great! The fish quality is amazing and they were very open to personiling rolls for me!! I had an amazing time to put the icing on the cake they gave me a free dessert! strwberry/banana something , so MMMMM MM good.
This place is total s*** – Looking around here I don't have much to add to the already terrible reviews, other than to say they are spot on. For the life of me I don't understand what people have enjoyed here and how anybody can give it a positive rating. I'm guessing the fancy decor and high prices make people think they are getting quality. Really they're just getting ripped off.
Great Sushi in Eagle Rock! – My wife and I have tired many sushi restaurants in LA. Some good, alot not worth mentioning. We read an a good review in the LA Times and thought we would give it a try. We were very impressed by the service and fresh sashimi. We had a jalape?o sashimi appetizer that was delicious! I don't know of any other sushi bars in Eagle Rock and for the price, I would strongly recommend. The staff was not uptight like some J town sushi bars. We made reservations and when we arrived, our table was waiting! We highly recommend Mia Sushi. Also, great selection of Sake:)
