Had the pleasure of trying out this cute little, intimate Izakaya spot!

We tried:
- Sushi premium omakase
- Beef tongue
- Mushroom
- Miso cod
- Chicken skin
- Eggplant
- Bacon wrap shrimp
- Bacon wrap enoki
- Shishito pepper
- Hamachi Kama
- Toro uni bowl
- Spicy tuna on crispy rice

The sushi omakase came with some really premium cuts and it was super fresh. The o-toro was an absolute dream. It’s so buttery, I’m still drooling thinking about it. Would definitely come back for the sushi and 10/10 would REC the omakase.

I would also RECOMMEND the Toro Uni bowl. It came with seaweed on the side to allow you to create the perfect bite with the uni, toro and ikura. The uni and toro were so fresh, paired with the pop of salt from the ikura, that’s perfection.

The hamachi kama, was also very delicious. I would RECOMMEND this as well. The skin was so crispy and the fish meat was so soft on the inside. But it was the sauce really took it to the next level!

The spicy tuna on the crispy rice was nice and crunchy with a nice kick to it. Would recommend this for sushi pizza lovers!

We tried a variety of skewers and most were good, but the mushroom was really dry. I would SKIP the mushroom for sure. Nothing super special about the skewers but it does make for a great snack. The miso cod was my fav and would eat that one again.

The biggest downfall is that the parking is hectic. The lot is very small and I would recommend street parking instead.

Overall, I would return for the sushi for sure and would def try more items!

The food was good. I only give three stars is because of the environment. We were seated in the outdoor area, and there was a huge mouse just running over in front of us while we had our food….

Portions were good, the prices were high. But the fish quality was also high. Service was efficient and good. Dining area was tiny. My only complaint was the ac was so cool that it made my food cold very fast. I will sit outside next time. The restaurant had someone in their taking a video as seen in photo posted below. He was giving all the dishes he received a really good review. Definitely will go again to treat myself. But it is too cost prohibitive for the way I like to order sushi???? to go weekly.
Edit: I’ve ordered take out and ate at a table since my first visit. Today, they sat me at the Sushi bar. Lunchtime, it was a chance to see the kitchen operating. It was a well oiled machine no less than 5 guys in the cooking area prepping and making food. All was as it should be. This is the only restaurant I will eat Uni/Sea Urchin. It only keeps a few days then goes bad. Here it is always fresh.

Great Izakaya. I like to come here for all sorts of delicious Japanese foods (not just sushi, although their sushi is also top notch).

It's definitely not the cheapest Japanese restaurant, but you don't go here for cheap eats... This a restaurant you go to enjoy Japanese dishes and flavors you typically can't experience elsewhere.

I HIGHLY recommend taking a shot at some menu items you might not consider. The croquettes and hotpots are delicious

The sushi and sashimi is simply amazing!! The fish is very fresh. The uni bowl is also fantastic!

The dessert is kind of mediocre though

Crowded, make reservations if you can. The outdoor space is partially enclosed and visually pleasant but is subject to the loud noise and smells of Sunset Boulevard.

The menu is good, the food is exceptional and a great value for portion and quality.

We had the Chirashi bowl for $36 which easily feeds two.

The service is fast if perfunctory.

My family (Me & husband & 2 boys) came to dinner after a concert in DTLA. Searched google almost 5 stars reviews Japanese restaurant near by.

I am really sorry gave you 2 stars but I feel disappointed first time here.????????

1. Really crowded places and busy servers. Make us feel rushing (ordering and eating and leave)

2. Fish(sashimi) are ok. But the rice is brown rice? Not sushi rice?? That was not acceptable. Boys didn’t eat sushi. Me and my husband stomach felt so bad after dinner. (brown rice hard to digest)

Sorry! We are Asian. We ate lots different restaurant sushi.. never had brown rice for sushi. Even I know brown rice is good for your health. But nahh! Not should be on sushi????????????

3. Miso chicken udon. Can’t taste any miso paste! Lots black pepper (and on chicken too). Soup is way too sweet ????

4. Price range. Yup. Like other reviews. Pricey. 4 people cost $250 ???????????? this sushi plate $100 and with brown rice????????

I like the skewers in this restaurant very much. I think skewers are the best thing in this restaurant, especially chicken liver, chicken tail and chicken skin. But other foods are of average quality. It doesn't surprise me. BTW, service quality and attitude need to be improved.
