4 Places To Get Sushi In Santa Monica

4 Places To Get Sushi In Santa Monica

  |     |   Uncategorized

One of the perks of living on the west coast is easy access to great seafood. Restaurants throughout Santa Monica and surrounding areas take advantage of the proximity to the ocean and fresh local seafood and make gorgeous dishes with fresh ingredients. For sushi lovers, this means choosing from a wide selection of sushi restaurants that specialize in handcrafted rolls with classic and non-traditional ingredients. 


There are dozens of sushi restaurants in Santa Monica, but if we had to narrow it down to our top four, these are the best of the best:  


Sushi Roku Santa Monica 

Sushi Roku is not your average sushi joint. It’s a classy, fine-dining experience with a semi-formal dress code and an expansive menu of gourmet options. The Santa Monica location offers both dine-in and pickup/delivery services and has an impressive bar staffed by professional and knowledgeable bartenders creating Instagram-worthy signature cocktails.  


Choose from hot or cold appetizers, soups, salads, or Robata skewers to start, and then work your way down their list of signature sushi rolls.  


The sushi here is truly a work of art, created by executive chefs with a reputation for creating edible masterpieces. When you’re here you should try the Tuna Jalapeno or the Katana, and if you can’t decide on what to get, the Deluxe Sushi Plate is a great way to try a little bit of everything  




SUGARFISH prides itself on serving only traditional sushi of the highest quality based on Chef Nozawa’s style of sushi. The SUGARFISH team is dedicated, maybe obsessed, with hand-selecting the fish they use for their sushi rolls. They’re experts in finding the best fish based on color, fat content, size, freshness, and how the fish was handled. When it comes to quality fish, there is no room for compromise. The Santa Monica location features an elegant dining room with eclectic light fixtures, carefully curated artwork, and a wait staff committed to excellence.  


To start, try the Edamame, Tuna Sashimi, or Albacore Sushi, and then treat yourself to a gorgeous Japanese Yellowtail roll or the New Zealand Sea Bream. 


Mon Roll House Sushi 

If you’re looking for a more casual, budget-friendly way to enjoy top-of-the-line sushi, pop into Mon Roll House Sushi. This local sushi restaurant offers a wide variety of rolls and homemade appetizers, but seating is limited so it’s best to get there early. They are known for their friendly and efficient waitstaff, this hidden gem is great for a date night or business lunch. There’s not a lot of space for big groups, as Mon Roll House Sushi aims to provide a low-key, intimate sushi experience for all guests. Locals rave about the Rock n’ Roll Roll, the California Mango Roll, and the Kryptonite Roll. Everything that comes to the table is as beautiful as it is delicious, and this small but impressive Japanese Fusion restaurant has something for everyone.  


Kappo Miyabi 

Kappo Miyabi debuted in the Santa Monica sushi scene in 2019 and has quickly earned its spot as one of the leading sushi restaurants in the city. This is the place sushi enthusiasts go to be impressed. This beautiful restaurant features comfortable indoor and outdoor dining areas, a full-service bar, and an impressive menu carefully curated by Chef Yasu Tanaka. If you visit during lunchtime, order the Lunch Sushi Omakase or the Lunch Miyabi Omakase and be surprised and delighted by the chef's choice of premium assorted sushi. 


Bottom Line 

Whether you're new to the sushi scene or you consider yourself a sushi aficionado, Santa Monica is a great place to enjoy beautifully handcrafted sushi rolls made with fresh and local ingredients. If you lived at NMS Lincoln, you'd be just a short drive from many of these sushi places, along with other hidden gems throughout the city.
