This place is pretty good. I went on July 5th, so apparently because it was considered a holiday, they didn't have some of the types of fish I like (i.e. Toro). But this place was pretty good overall. I still like KULA sushi in Irvine better. The prices were a little extreme here.

Daichan is in a very Japanese-y area on Sawtelle and Olympic. It's a kaiten sushi, also called revolving sushi, which is nice because you can grab whatever you want as it comes around. The sushi tastes pretty good all the time and the sushi chefs are friendly. I like going here, but I like to go during "crowded hours" (it's never ridiculously crowded) otherwise there's not much sushi going around and you'd have to order and ask for it. Price is also pretty good for sushi.

Don't pay attention to the person who reviewed below saying they had bad service...must have been a fluke, because I have been eating here for months now since I have discovered it and these people bend over backwards to accommodate you.

Much to our disappointment, we decided to give this place one final chance, after the last time they a.) ran out of food on the conveyor belt and b.) forget my order for more than 1/2 hour, and we were so wrong to come here again. At first

Obviously you can get better sushi elsewhere - but not for this price. $2 a plate! And because it's revolving sushi you can get your food pretty much instantaneously. I was impressed with the sweet shrimp and squid pieces and the salmon

What you get for your MONEY is good. Its about B- sushi for C- price. But that's about it. Everythign is pretty plain - very no frills. The ginger is tasteless, as is the wasabi. The rolls are only tasty if you order them made right there

All sushi for $2 except the 60% that's not $2. And who wants $2 sushi anyway? If it is as fresh and high quality as they claim, they would be losing their shirts at that price. Trust me, you get what you pay for.\r
