I was very shocked to find such a small wonder in such a big place like California. I walked in and was greeted with a big smile and treated with respect, and seated immediately in a packed atmosphere. I felt as if I were back in Japan and the menu is authentic and those who aren't use a traditional style... More

We were stuck overnighting near LAX due to a canceled flight. Hotel food did not sound appetizing so we started looking to at other options. We stumbled upon the Kanpai Sushi Bar and Grill and were grateful to have the bad taste of flight delays replaced by the outstanding sushi. We enjoyed a variety of rolls, none of which disappointed.... More

I found this place by researching the best Uni in LA. It did not disappoint. We ate here before we left town from LAX. Most of the food choices near the airport are dismal. This is a diamond in the rough. I recommend the Uni. Everything Uni. Uni oyster caviar, Uni sampler (get one order per person), and my favorite:... More

Super popular place, suggest you make reservations. At peak times it is loud and bustling. All things sushi plus other Japanese food. An exotic experience, the chefs are fun to watch, with expert skill and fun personalities. You could brush up on your Japanese here. Not the place for a quiet dinner or discuss the details of something but very... More

This is a small but very good, innovative restaurant with an extensive menu. Make sure you make a reservation because this place is always crowded as well it should be. Each dish was special and well executed. It was packed with regulars. Service was very good, the sake selection excellent and well priced.

This is my favorite neighborhood sushi spot. The vibe is energetic, but still casual. Good for a night out with friends, late night bites, or even a date. Clientele ranges from locals to college students to business people or couples out on a date. It's often crowded, but they do offer take out or you can get delivery using one... More

I don't eat sushi, but had a wonderful time anyway. I had sesame chicken and tempura veges...both were good. The rest of my party enjoyed the expertise of a sushi sommelier and in depth education on types of sushi. He even had me try a couple of things, one that I tried was king card with truffle...mmmmmm. In depth saki... More
