Light lunch in L.A.

Had lunch here with family and you know it is a good Japanese restaurant when there are lots of Japanese customers. The entrance had pictures of various celebrities who have eaten here. The menu is varied, with hot and cold versions of their famous home made noodles, all reasonably priced. They had... read more

This restaurant was a favorite of my late Uncle & I can see why. The food is fabulous, the service prompt and I love the private rooms you can sit in. Everything that we asked for was brought promptly and correctly. We look forward to visiting the place again!

Sanuki No Sato is really an excellent place for Japanese lunch or dinner. We had been a regular customer every time we visited Southern California. Their noodle specially Udon was exceptionally good. We had decided to host a small party of 20 for dinner on Monday night and still returned for lunch the next day. This proved our appreciation to... More

I love Sanuki no Sato. We always went to Sanuki no Sato weekly for lunch when we lived in Torrance, CA. After we moved to Northern California, we still visit Sanuki no Sato when we come down. I love their tempura, nabeyaki udon, tonkatsu, beef nanbanyaki, the mini donburis, and so on. I can go on and on. The broth... More

If you want traditional Japanese food, this is the place to go. No fusion style, no other ethnic influence, just the "real McCoy!" If you care to take your dining experience to the next level, they even have authentic Tatami rooms for your pleasure. The food is impeccably prepared and delicious. The service is A+ and the staff go out... More

We came to Torrance because my wife had to do a Board Certified Test at the Person Professional building. We decide to get a hotel and have dinner before her bug test the next day. We wanted some sushi or something Asian. While checking the reviews and location we decide to go to this restaurant. The food was GOOD, it... More

We ate our quick lunch last week and found that their udon was excellent and set lunch was quite good in any standard. On our return to Los Angeles this week, we hesitantly try the Sanuki No Sato for dinner. We thought that the worst can happen is to order similar dishes as our lunch. The place was packed upon...

Overpriced, snooty staff and yet this place is packed. Unbelievable. Used to come here for lunch all the time. Dropped by for first time in a year, this time for dinner. The gozen was $36 and not worth it. The tempura cold, the chawan-mushi bland and the dashi for the small udon not as good as before. Staff look like... More

What I like about this place is the homemade noodle dishes. The broth is perfectly seasoned, and there are so many noodle variations you can choose from. What is rare is that they serve the cold Japanese barley tea which is really uncommon in restaurants. All restaurants that I know serve cold water. I had the tempura udon, and they... More
