The food was bland an not flavorful. Both my appetizer and entrees seemed devoid of flavor. The sushi tasted frozen and washed out, and something left my stomach less than settled after my dinner. The space itself lacked character, and the service was fine though they tended to disappear for long periods of time. Overall, not impressed.

Great place! This place is busy! People seem to like coming here just for an evening out. We sat in the lounge area which was very modern and chill, and had meals off the happy hour menu. The sushi rolls here are great! Great atmosphere, decent prices, good food, great music. I would come here again!

The Chaya menu is so unique that you can visit this restaurant many, many times. The food is really very good. And always consistent. And the service is very good. You always feel welcomed and the attention to detail is very good.

I had black cod as main course and yellow tails as my starter. I am looking for black cod outside of japan and was very glad able to find the dish in CA. I had the same dish in San Diego but it was not great. One thing I do have to say it is better than what I had... More

My friends and I frequented Chaya Venice in the 90s. Having recently moved back to California we thought a trip to old haunts for a bit of nostalgia and happy hour sushi were in order. Pleasantly surprised to find the same great atmosphere food and drink specials. The happy hour sushi in the bar is still a great deal. The... More

This place is just fun. The menu is based on seafood but also touches the land. Service is brisk and helpful. The vibe is Venice beach. The wine list very sophisticated. A great place to have dinner with friends and relax.

I've stopped in st this place over the years alone or friends a number of times. Sat at tables but mostly prefer the sushi bar. It is one of my all time favorite uni places. Nothing fancy just good food and atmosphere. The place is always lively from the happy hour to the late hours. Some nice spicy combos, good... More

We did not get seated right away, which was strange because we had a reservation and there were plenty of tables available. We also got a table by the kitchen, which was fine, but, again, strange since we did have a reservation and it was a birthday dinner. Food was great and service was good.

Chaya Venice has always been one of my favorite lunch places on special occasions. But recently my male friend and I took a stroll along Venice beach on one of those particularly hot LA late summer days and then hunger hit. We'd parked right nearby Chaya so I suggested going in. I asked about happy hour specials little expecting to... More
