    Go to Yanagi's if you crave authentic Japanese food at a reasonable price. Service was especially good. Rolls were excellent along with the miso black cod.

    What's not to like about this restaurant? A wonderful selection of food. It is one of our favorite places to eat at. The employees are very polite and always scanning the tables to see if any customers need anything.

    My wife and I has been coming here since they opened this location. As our family has grown, we have come to find this as more than a romantic sushi bar. The staff are all very attentive and make a point to remember you. The quality of the fish is always extremely fresh. They have a large menu with some interesting options that will make your tongue dance with pleasure. If you haven't tried this place, you are missing out.

    Previously, I had read many reviews about their great deal of a happy hour, but had forgotten about it. Decided to try this place, since it's fairly close to where we live. We got there as happy hour started and were able to take advantage of the 1/3 or so off of most of their menu items. (Their happy hour times span most of the week at certain hours, much more than normal.) And everything was really GOOD! We've been looking for a place with great fusion sushi rolls since we moved to the area and we've finally found it! We already returned a week later and were not disappointed.

    This has been our sushi go to since it has opened in Torrance and we have always enjoyed it. The fish quality is high and the service is always warm and welcoming. I definitely recommend it to everyone, sushi fanatics and sushi newbies.

    I absolutely love this place. Not only because their food is good but because Alice our waitress is a sweetheart. The sushi chefs are always super nice and they always welcome us, even when I bring my 5 month old. We are gonna miss you Yanagi when we move :(

    I know it's scary trying a new sushi spot but this place is a must try. It's a great place for just a night out, date night, or any special occasion. Love it!!

    We love this place. We've been here many times and the food and service are always good. Chefs Jason and Andy turn out some really great sushi. The ambiance suits anything from casual dining with friends to a romantic night out.

    In Lomita, a landscape littered with fast food carry-out, and taco stands,you will find Yanagi Bistro. It's right there on PCH, it's own parking lot, drawfed by the expansive Rolling Hills Plaza, just a few doors down. The restaurant has a terrific staff, and Chefs, gracious and efficient. It's smart to reserve on Open Table. I recommend the Bento Box for lunch. Thats a house salad, with a mustard soy dressing, that has a good little kick to it. Miso soup, your personal selection of 2 mains for $10.00 or 3 for $13.00 You may wish to indulge in Yanagi's wonderful hand-rolled sushi, or sashimi. The dinner entrees are exceptionslly tasty, Wagu beef, the short ribs, their sushi rivals the West Side! Beer, wine,saki.
