Kudos to the chef.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was one of the very bestThis was one of the very best meals I have ever had in my life. If the Michelin Guide doesn't come back to LA just to give this place three stars, it will be a travesty.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BEST!!!N/naka blew us away. It was the BEST Japanese /sushi we've ever tasted outside Japan, ever!! (I grew up in Tokyo). Each course were delicate, balanced, with a wow factor. Presentation was impeccable and beautiful.

We will return for another special occasion soon.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemI say 'Hidden' as I would not have heard about the restaurant except that I too have a vegetable garden that is cared for by Farmscape.
We had 14 course tasting. Much sushi and the best EVER.
They have an 8 course also--but you HAVE to have reservations!
We will go back again for the 8 course.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing meal once a again!Chef Nikki deserves to be nominated for a James Beard award! Each course was perfection. I've been here three times so far, and every single dish was memorable and delicious. I give her tons of credit for the amount of dedication and creativity she puts into her cooking. This is by far my favorite restaurant in LA the past 3 years since I first dined here.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was stunning andThe food was stunning and outstanding.

Worth every one of the many pennies it cost!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience with theAmazing experience with the 9 course tasting menu paired with wines and sake. They did everything to accomadte my friend who is gluten free. And when we decided that we didn't like sake, they substituted another wine instead.
