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

On a recent visit to California, my son treated me to a special birthday meal at Chaya Venice. For months, he had raved about the Soy Glazed Black Cod entree as well as several other dishes. Although I have eaten many different types of fish, I had never tasted Black Cod before. This tender fish was prepared in a sweet... More

Went for Sat. night dinner with our son. Sounded like a lively place to share a special dinner, plus, we had a discount coupon! Wrong! Food was bland: paella had lovely seafood, but no taste; special halibut with mushrooms was not special. We could hardly communicate because the room was so noisy, and it wasn't even packed. The bar, both... More
