a delightful findthe assorted fish carpaccio is so fresh and tasty we are coming back every week just for it:)6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the Chef's ChoiceWe enjoyed the Chef's Choice five course dinner at Aburiya Toranoko. The food was imaginative, fresh and impressive. The service was exceptional.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMJapanese styleVery good. Went for lunch. I like the fact that Toranoko is bringing high Japanese standards of great food, knowledge, service, and atmosphere. I'll be back to try dinner and more drinks next time. I did not give it 5 stars just because there is always room and desire to improve.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, serviceFish carpaccio was our favorite, but everything was very good.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the BEST deals everOne of the BEST deals ever for TravelZoo in Los Angeles. Apparently Wed nights are 50% off. Worth the trip downtown. Food amazing and prepared with care. Sashimi delish. Happy hour delights might be enough for those need early evening food and libations! Parking is metered until 8pm.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother gem from CardenasWhat can I say that hasn't been said? Thank you for creating a great casual but fancy enough sushi spot without the over the top little Tokyo cookie cutter atmosphere. It's a sweet little spot for a date, friends, and neighborhood spot. Prices are decent, foods is fantastic and chefs are top rate. And above all they've got options!!! So you can bring the sushi shy person and they won't starve in fact they will be very happy o know there are plenty of meats on sticks that are yummy!
Thanks again MC you rock my man5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA New Favorite Spot for UsMy wife and I were really in the mood for some great Japanese food but it was late in the afternoon on a Saturday so our usual choice Shojin (vegan Japanese) was all booked up. So we hunted online for about half an hour before deciding to try Aburiya. It was easy to find and parking was easy too. It was a *FUN* atmosphere but intimate too. It was really busy but we still got great service. They seated us in large wooden chairs at the sushi bar and we had our own sushi chef all night and also ordered from the kitchen. I was hungry and ordered seven items along with drinks. The food exceeded my expectations, everything was really good. It totally hit the spot. So now we've added Aburiya to our favorites list and we will be back soon.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMStylish Japanese FoodWe ordered many dishes and they were all wonderful. We ended with the sweet potato dessert which was incredible!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWent on a travel zoo specialWent on a travel zoo special 5 course meal. Very creative flavors and combinations.

There is a fried chicken appetizer (whose name I don't remember) that is amazing--basically chicken breasts with skin apparently fried at terrific heat to turn them into delicous chicken-flavored air. Unbelievably light.
The setting is very hip and attractive with Japanese grafitti and lots of exposed brick.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe all had a great time there. We'We all had a great time there.
