Located in West Los Angeles, The Backhouse Restaurant crafts authentic Japanese cuisine with a tremendous amount of TLC in its relaxing and friendly restaurant. For starters, enjoy the soft-shell crab with ponzu sauce and the kabocha pumpkin tempura with curry cream dip. Some of The Backhouse Restaurant’s most popular menu items are its bowls, layered with delectable items, such as the parmesan risotto with uni and dashi soy sauce and the braised beef tongue served over fried rice with Japanese spicy sauce. Specialty sushi rolls at The Backhouse Restaurant are made with the finest ingredients and have a truly inventive flair. House specialty rolls include the popcorn shrimp-topped roll with spicy tuna and smelt egg and the baked lobster roll with spicy sauce, spicy tuna and spicy garlic crunchies.

For a sweet end to your Japanese feast, enjoy the decadent green tea cheesecake.

    Our server made the night! She was very sweet & personable. The food was delicious! I truly recommend the Salmon Truffle hand role along with the Salmon Truffle Sashimi style! Perfection! Melts in your mouth like pure butter! We'll definitely be back very soon!

    We were underwhelmed by the menu options, the service, and the originality of the food. The service was mediocre, and the space wasn't even filled on a Saturday night. My husband's cooked food came out cold and had to be microwaved. My veggie roll was boring and expensive. The place has a lot of potential and a fun atmosphere but it doesn't live up to it.

    Very nice evening. We were on the patio, so unfortunately the lounge music next door was competing with the music our restaurant was playing. They should just share a station to keep it more enjoyable. I didn't know which song to listen to! The Ramen was so good!

    Service was horrible and the food was nothing special. The food was equivalent to any local sushi spot. The service was the worst! We were never checked in and our table never got cleared off. Wouldn’t go back.

    The food is great, however the past 2 times I have been there the service sucked. The first time the hostess forgot about us altogether and sat others ahead of us, but then our server made up for it. This time the hostess was awesome, on time and accommodated our outside reservation but then we sat there for 33 minutes without anyone even approaching us for water. A random waiter took us and did his best to accommodate us even though we weren't in his section...kudos to Jacob. However he could only do so much. We talked to a manager and instead of comping us part of our meal, he sent us a desert we did not want. Makes me sad since the food is great, but we're 0 for 2 so far.

    I think this place is overrated. The food was mediocre. Service was not worth taking about.

    Date afternoon with my wife. Outdoor seating is great for people watching and looking at the ocean. The rainbow role and tempura veggies were awesome, the oysters not so much. Good food and great service.
