A great selection of small bites Yakitori skewers! The food was flavorful and cooked well. A handful of dishes were a bit too sweet for my liking, such as the Agedashi Tofu and the Pork Ribs. Otherwise, a great experience for NYE dinner.

Food was really good. Each order came out separately and there was a lot of down time in between. Faster would be better as I seemed to get full sitting there waiting.

Seeing friends from Romania and their teenage son for the first time in 2 years. Looking for a place that they wouldn’t find in Bucharest. Delivered on all levels. Very expensive but worth it.

Fantastic. The bone marrow was incredible (could use a bigger toast though, and more toast). The steak with wasabi was the best bite of the night. The whiskey menu is long and lovely. Good and friendly staff.

Great little gem at the Bloc in Downtown LA. Friendly staff and excellent service. Variety of small dishes and grilled sticks. Chicken wings, pork belly, black chicken Karaage and corn tempura were all delicious. Fun place to check out.

Terrible service, very slow and inaccurate. Waiter forgot a few things. Over 2 hours duration to eat. One dish was brought every 10 minutes. Did not enjoy the experience at all. Most of the food was cold, especially the meats. We ordered a lot of dishes but portions was so small, we had to grab burgers afterwards to fill up. Way too expensive, not at ALL worth it!

Restaurant is in a courtyard of a shopping center which is currently quite active and has a loud Christmas light show every hour. The food was awesome - service a little slow but they were pretty busy and seemed to be a bit under staffed. Overall great spot and will return.

Did not find much flavor in any of the eight dishes we ordered. I was excited to try the sweet corn & jalapeño tempura. Barely any jalapeño flavor. If I hadn't read it was in there I wouldn't have known.

The food here is consistently great. It’s one of our favorite spots for well-executed yakitori and the karaage is some of the best we’ve eaten. The beverage list offers a lot of variety and I often find a new Japanese craft beer that I haven’t tried before. It’s proximity to Staples makes this our “go to” pre-Laker game meal.
