The original and the best.

I have been coming here with friends who are Studio City locals since 2001. The food is amazing and the way they cater for kids and regulars is impressive. My girls love the "lollipops", raw salmon wrapped in cucumber shavings, shaped into a lollipop. Staff are patient with the little ones. It's... read more

Sushi here is fresh. However, their best value is their combination which was served in a nice platter and tasted really great.

I LOVE katsuya. Not only is the service amaaaaaazing (with manager coming in and asking if everything is good and if he could do anything else to make us feel welcome!) but they also accommodate your diet need. I am a vegetarian and the waiter went out of his way to let me know what he recommends and what other... More

The food was absolutely delicious. And the service was also outstanding. It was very busy and they had to sneak me in between people with reservations. I'd recommend making a reservation but it would be worth the wait if necessary. The atmosphere is casual, family friendly. Not much in the way of a bar so don't go there if you're... More

The food was just absolutely fantastic here. There is something for everyone. The service was great. They have indoor and outdoor seating. We go back every time we are in LA. Highly recommend.

Absolute Deliciousness. The best sushis on earth out of Japan, fine gourmet japanese food... Atmosphere is casual, make sure you book even though you'd still might have to wait, but totally worth it.

Street level spot with a fantastic selection of Sushi and other delights. Mainline choices are dominant but a few "chef specials". High quality ingredients, preparation with basic presentation. We had seven different items of which all were very good. The lobster appetizer was disappointing, essentially a half lobster shell with mushrooms, lobster and a lot of butter. Reasonably priced for... More

I enjoyed Katsuya, but I would have enjoyed it tremendously more if it didn't cost me my first born child. They validate though, which is great!
