Amazing food, every dish ordered was absolutely delicious. We loved how all items are tapa-style where everyone in your party could try a little bit of everything. I’d highly recommend the Chilean sea bass, miso Black cod and the wagyu on lava stone grill! Ambience was great. We can’t wait to come back!

Kind of loud place. But, incredible food! The innocuously named “sashimi sampler” was an amazing staircase of fresh fish. Try it.

It's now on my must go list ! The atmosphere's great, service is good, and most importantly the food is amazing. I love the happy hour which is until 7pm weekly. I've tried a few items on the regular menu and they were amazing! each skewer is on point with juiciness and it just melts in your mouth.

Beautiful restaurant, make a reservation because it is small inside. Food was good, the chickpeas are a must, but the eggplant miso was tough and we were not fans so we sent it back- the kitchen was accommodating with our request. Overall great, we will be back!

Everything was great! I’ve been her a handful of times before. our sake and sauces came almost half way through the meal, which wasn’t a huge deal.
We sat at the counter and there is an awful fruit fly problem. It was rather gross. We told the waiter about it. Hopefully the problem gets fixed. It did detour us from having more food and sticking around longer

This place is fantastic! We’ve been many times and we’re never disappointed. The food is delicious and fresh. The sashimi melts in your mouth. The service has always been exceptional. It can get quite busy, so I definitely recommend making a reservation. Absolutely love this place!!

I’ve been here twice. Really love the food - there aren’t that many good tapas style Japanese food in LA to be honest. It’s a little dark/loud indoors, so I sat outside the second time I went there and really loved the setting. The skewers are great especially if you catch the happy hour prices. Love it’s organic tofu (they make it in front of you). Really good deal during happy hour. Could be a bit pricey during normal hours

The hosts were very nice, We were seated immediately upon arrival. Food came out fairly quick. Presentation was very nice all the dishes. The Jinya black Ramen was quite disappointing. There did not seem to have much flavor and the broth was not steaming hot. The stand out dish was the house made tofu. I could of eaten 3 of them. We ordered about 5 types of skewers but for what ever reason all of our chicken sticks did not come out. Since we received all of our dishes and we're about to have our plates cleared since the kitchen had not made the sticks we asked to cancel. Our waitress was very apologetic and gladly took the items off our bill. Overall our dinner was good.
