Very mediocre sushi, overrated – I have ate at a lot of sushi restaurants in LA and wanted to give Luckyfish a chance especially after seeing it air on the Hills. While the revolving sushi bar was very high-tech and impressive, and the atmosphere was hip, I was quite disappointed with the food. The sushi was very mediocre, nothing special at all. The servings/portions were small and the miso soup was served out of a Miso soup machine, not freshly made. Even though the sushi was freshly made, it was lacking taste and flavor. Would not go back here again!
I LOVE THIS PLACE – Randomly went here with my boyfriend one night, not expecting much, and we fell in LOVE with it. The fish is ridiculously fresh and I'm tough to please when it comes to sushi. Really tough. Epically tough. The only comparable sushi I've had is served at places like Nasawa or Sassabone - those "trust the chef" places. Every single dish is heaven. Plus the waitress was a sweetheart. The second time we went, the food was just as good, plus we had an amazing waiter AND the manager was there and was the coolest guy ever! Seriously. I can't believe this place isn't packed, but then again it's kinda nice, cause it makes it our special place. :). I especially love the albacore and tuna dishes under the cold dishes section, and the albacore sushi on its own. My boyfriend is a huge fan of their salmon and dynamite. SO GOOD. You all must go so that it's still here when I get back to LA in 5 weeks!
convenient, stylish, tasty sushi for those on-the-go – I enjoyed lunch at Luckyfish on a weekday. Sure, I was leery of the conveyor-belt delivery system, despite the special system they have of pulling unselected dishes off after a specified period of time. Though some dishes suffer from this approach, such as the miso-glazed tempura rock shrimp, basic sushi fared fairly well. Their simple cucumber and seaweed sunomono was excellent. The menu is varied enough to suit anyone who enjoys Japanese food. The service was excellent, and our server was happy to replace our slightly doughy tempura shrimp from the conveyor with a nice, hot, crispy order directly from the kitchen. The short rib special needed a bit of work, as it was a tad too salty and was far too chewy; perhaps some braising or pressure-cooking would have helped.
Overall, though, the food was pretty good. The most novel and notable aspect is that one can roll in there and begin eating almost immediately, facilitating a healthy, enjoyable lunch in very little time. It's also a perfectly comfortable place to spend a little extra time, nibble a few extra orders of food, and have a few drinks.
For serious sushi aficionados looking for a top-notch meal, this is not the place. For someone wanting a fun, quick, tasty lunch, it fits the bill perfectly.
Not what I was expecting – When I found out LuckyFish was from the same guys that run Katana, I was really excited and HAD to try it. I think my expectations were too high, though, because nothing I ate there really wowed me. Nothing was terrible, nothing was fantastic (except for the lychee martinis, Im always looking for them and they got it right!) I will say that the atmosphere is great and really fun, the type I would recommend for a group of friends wanting to have fun. The music they play (once the sun goes down) is also really really good. One warning: the prices on the menu seem low, but your bill will be high! The portions are silly small, which forces you to order several plates of the same dish and you end up with a bill much higher than you thought it would be. I would recommend this place to a friend, but warn them ahead of time that though they'll have fun, dont expect the best sushi ever.
Dont eat here! – Wow, this place is absolutely the worst attempt at sushi I have ever experienced.
The rolls are microscopic and only 4 pieces.
We got 7 rolls for two people and had to get something to eat afterwards because the rolls were so small. Talk about small, they should be ashamed to serve the hand rolls.
The fish was far from fresh and the spicy tuna had no spice!
Stay far away from this place!
Surprisingly good! – Why? because I saw so many of the same type of concept and every time the food was bad.Lucky Fish provides good quality and fresh food in a fun environement. Good wine list. That is the perfect spot for a great lunch! And not overpriced!
Very stylish place! – Located in Beverly Hills one would think that this trendy sushi place is highly overpriced. However, appearances are deceptive. Get four tuna and four Californian rolls for 3.50$ each. Or have a delicate
chicken salad for the same price. The sushi comes fresh and nicely arranged. This place is not only
a hot spot for sushi lovers but also a place for those who enjoy dining amid a stylish ambiance. Dining
at the conveyor belt is worth an experience and the fish rolls come cheaper. A must try is the spicy tuna roll.
A 'lucky' sushi find! – You?ll have to fish for your dinner at this sushi restaurant, but don?t worry if you?re not good with a rod and tackle. Luckyfish puts a new spin on cuisine in Beverly Hills by serving up tapas-sized portions of sushi, sashimi, salads and other dishes on a conveyor belt.
The concept to launch kaiten-zushi-style dining in Beverly Hills comes from the masterminds behind the trio of trendy Japanese eateries Katana, Sushi Roku and Robata Bar. The plates, which are color-coded by price ($3.50-$7.50), are implanted with digital chips to ensure no meal stays on the belt for longer than an hour. In order to get the greatest variety of dishes on the belt, Luckyfish is one restaurant you actually want to visit during prime lunch and dinner eating hours.
An a la carte menu of hot dishes and other items is available. The crunchy, spicy tuna rolls tantalize the taste buds with the combination of warm rice, cold fish and fried seaweed. Meanwhile, the spicy chicken salad is refreshingly tangy.
Popular selections, according to waiters, include baked crab, popcorn shrimp tempura and miso black cod.
Perhaps the most pleasant surprise of all, given the restaurant?s Japanese culinary focus, is on the dessert menu with the flavorful, bite-sized molten chocolate cake. Also offered are a vanilla creme brulee and a unique-flavored green tea cheesecake.
For those who need a break from the belt, which that weaves through the restaurant?s sleek, white bar seating and the handful of matching tables, dining is available on the outdoor patio that?s decorated with dark-wood furnishings.
Quick and yummy!!! – I was extremely pleased with my lunch outing here! My girlfriends and I were craving good sushi, but had to be back at the office within the hour. We were so impressed to find that it took under an hour to have a satisfying yet healthy meal. Thanks to the rotating belt, we were able to sit down and begin eating immediately. Not only were the employees friendly and accommodating, but the quality of fish was outstanding! The hanabi is a must try... one of my favorites! :) In addition, Luckyfish has a light and fun atmosphere with great, feel good music to keep you feeling positive and healthy!
Skip the fancy drinks-eat the sushi – I went with my boyfriend here last night for dinner. We were promptly seated by a friendly hostess and then greeted by our server--she was very attentive and sweet. the sushi was pretty good, some stood out from others--I really enjoyed the roll with shrimp and jalapenos--i cant remember the name Luckyfish called it...the Baked crab roll was also wicked good. The sashimi was also excellent. The drinks (I ordered the Infusion) were over priced--stick with the water or soda. The conveyor belt was fun to watch, the restaurant is really pretty. I'd go back again, but watch how much you eat. Our bill was $117 for 2 people! Granted, we came hungry and ate a lot, but watch out--it adds up quickly when you're just grabbing things off the belt!
