My boyfriend and I had a chance to visit Kuma Sushi last weekend. Kuma Sushi located in the heart of the newly fashionable Atwater-village district of Los Angeles. We had been eye-ing this restaurant since last year but we kept going to somewhere else for sushi instead. :T
What catch our eyes were the water fountain in front of their restaurant (first pix) and their happy hour from 3pm to 7pm. So, to express our love for sushi and went inside for our first time, finally.
The decoration and lighting were nicely set, their welcome service was great. We wanted to try out this restaurant before we make our real sushi order, therefore we ordered items on their happy hour first. We got 2 salmon sushi, 1 spicy tuna roll, 1 eel avocado roll, 1 crunchy roll, 1 sushi burrito, 1 Chinese chicken salad, and ice green tea.
I was too hungry to remember to take the rest of the food.. except for the sushi burrito and the spicy tuna roll. :(

|Sushi Burrito: I believe it has asparagus, crap meat, crunchy stuff and wrap with soy paper.|
I personally love sushi for its sushi better than the rolls, if it makes any sense to you. I had a pleasure trying out other so called Best sushi in La such as SugarFish on San Vicente Blvd, Katsu-Ya sushi, Geisha House, before. In my opinion, Kuma Sushi is so far ranking almost better than Geisha House.
My thoughts: The restaurant has nice decoration, really good service. I recommend this restaurant for a couple on their dates because they have candle lights for dinner time. I felt in love with Kuma Sushi Salmon Sushi, I had to order the second one. Their sushi are fresh. The cuts of my salmon was perfect, not too meaty or too much fat. I know what I like and how I like my sushi. LOL
Overall, I give Kuma Sushi 3.5 stars out 5. I give it a 3.5 because I only had a chance to try their happy hour menu, which already costs us $52.00. However, with their happy hour, it's a bit costly. Our sugarFISH bill was around $130 for regular menu. Well the sushi burrito was not on their happy hour menu but we ordered it anyway because the name sounds so interesting to us. hehe. It was not as good as we expected. The mixture of everything was just too much for my tongue to figure out what I like from the "burrito".
If we have a chance to visit Kuma Sushi again, I would love to try all of their special plate, Sushi and Sashimi and maybe I can give it a better stars, or maybe I'll change my mind and give it lesser stars? who knows. :)
