Food was delicious ! I had crispy tuna and a bento box with black cod. Our waiter was super friendly- helpful. There are yummy mock tails. Nice atmosphere.

So I took a big group of people visiting the country for the first time. We had one vegetarian in the group that happened to be the chairman of the company. All he wanted was some noodles. The restaurant said that the cooks would not do it since their noodle dishes on the menu were in different broths like chicken... More

The sushi is fine (nice presentation but small expensive portions) but the service was lackluster. Our waiter took forever to take our order and forever to give us our bill. The place was nearly empty. The staff just stood and chatted with each other. Not impressed.

One will spend money here, no matter what you order... OK, one should receive great service!... not here. We were a group of 9, the waitress could not hear us but he would not move closer to hear each of us, instead rolled his eyes and asked again and again "what?". The mojitos are great... and the food is good,... More

This restauanrt is very convieient when going to a game at Staples Center. This chain has excellent food at all its other locations. The problem is there is no way to get satisfacory service pre game. The food doesnt seem as good as the other locations as well.

I've heard so much about Katsuya and wanted to try it while I was in the area. I went mid-day and sat at the bar. The bartender (Rodney) was awesome and very friendly! The manager on duty was also very nice to chat with. The food was good although I'm more of a basic sushi (roll) eater but I bet... More

Likely the best Sushi we've had anywhere. The fish was fresh from the sea, the combinations were ever so creative. So many menu items from which to select. Crazy busy and noisy but wonderful high level energy and great service. Will return for sure!

Awesome dinner. Right from the Edamame to Sushi, Sashimi, Eel and the blue cod. Tge warm Sake was also awesome though the caucasian chicks screaming in Japanese was very funny. Guess we were sitting right next to one of the stars from Game of Thrones.
