Reviewed June 17, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Went there while attending a conference in LA. Excellent small plates to share, and reasonably priced.

“Ramen at its best”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

True Japanese ramen should be simple, quick and delicious and this place embodies it all. Go in, order, eat your food, it's like being in Tokyo... Except the hour long wait because it's so popular. My recommendation is to go in as a single and you will be seated almost immediately. This is not a place for social gatherings, it's a ramen shop. Having spent time in Tokyo, living among the hustle and bustle of a crowded metropolis, it's all about speed and quality.

“Not bad”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

It's ok for the price, the service is decent, drinks are cheap, but I expected more from Little Tokyo, I'm sure you could find somewhere better down there. We had lots of sushi and small dishes and it was all fine, but nothing outstanding.

“Place to relax and socialize”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Looking for a place to enjoy a meal with friends? Then try Ebisu, this place is larger than it appears from sidewalk. The backdrop of ropes near tables creates privacy and atmosphere.

A summer day so majority ordered the Hiyashi Chuka (cold noodle salad) which took time to prepare...lots of julienned ingredients! Despite the fatty pork, a nice presentation and good flavors. Would consider a return trip to try izakaya offerings.
