This is a trendy Japanese tapas joint in Torrance. Parking isn't great but there is a lot and usually you can find a space. Or you can street park if the lot is full, which it is sometimes. The food here is good and priced right. We are regulars here and we intend to continue coming. Hachi is on par with izakaya joints in LA. Saves you the drive.

Xmas dinner at Hachi!! What a special treat for two of us. Six fantastic Japanese girls serving the best Izakaya fare in LA. Started with the bluefin red and chu-toro sashimi followed by Japanese potato salad, chicken Karaage, tako salad, Kani creme croquettes, seaweed sunomono, , fried chicken knuckles, tsukune, chicken liver and negima Yakitori, grilled pork belly, mackerel sushi baterrra, Uni/ikura kamameshi rice, onigiri, and washed down easily with a pitcher of ice-cold Asahi just for me. If that ain’t heaven on earth.......LOL!!!!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Torrance. It’s always crowded and normally filled with people of Japanese / Asian origin (that’s our sign that it should be good!). The staff welcomes you in Japanese and with a party of 2 you are seated at the counter most of the time. It’s cosy and you can see how the chef prepares the food. The service is good and comes very often to ask for extra food or drinks. Most of the time we order the same food, so we started with oysters (this time they were really huge) combined with the home sake. After that we had the mayo shrimps, gobo chips, beef ribeye steak, crab croquettes. Everything was really good, only the ribeye steak was a little bit to dry. The beef tongue is wat better. So overall, it was a very nice and delicious dinner and we are definitely coming back!

Hachi feels like an izakaya but with more interesting and delicious food than you would expect, especially considering how reasonable it is. It’s very authentic, has a seasonal selection of fish and specials, and a pretty deep sake/shochu list. Definitely worth it.

I love Japanese food. I must confess, however, that sushi bars and rolls get tedious, even thought they're delicious. So, when I saw an izakaya, accompanied by many great reviews, I figured it was worth a try, even though it is an hour from my home in the San Fernando Valley. Boy, was I right. The food was just wonderful, with a variety of dishes not commonly seen in the US. The selection of sakes was fantastic. The servers were fun, attentive, and knowledgeable, too. I'll look forward to me next drive (soon). Seriously, this is a can't miss dining experience if you're a Japanese food lover.

Best izakaya food in the South Bay. But if you come as a party of 2 they squeeze you into the counter seats which are claustrophobic as hell. Better to come with 3 or more.

I have dined here numerous times and always enjoy the delicious food and drinks. This time I was able to reserve a booth, which was wonderful so that we could hear our conversation. It can get noisy in the main dining area. Had a great time.

We just got back from Japan and wanted to relive our dining experience but could never find a place good enough. Well....this dining experience just took us back - the hospitality, the good vibes, the amazing food, and the charismatic chef, was everything we hoped for. We will definitely come back with a bigger party next time. Love this place and definitely worth the drive from the SGV.

Izakaya Hachi had excellent service. The servers (more than 2) kept coming by to check on how we're doing with a smile. Ambiance is great and the place had energy.
