Quaint but small, it’s a nice change of place from your typical sushi bar. Beer, wine and sake only. My dinner consisted of the cold spinach plate, baked Japanese pumpkin (Kobocha) with honey, Tiger Prawns with garlic and a nice, cold bottle of Kikusui Junmai Ginjo sake. Everything was delicious. The service was also very good. The tab was just over $63.00. I guess it goes with the (Ventura Blvd.) territory.

This restaurant does not have very many food choices for vegetarians. The restaurant was small, but very clean. Overall, there was not many items on the menu.

Eggplant is a very good Japanese restaurant. I love their Cooked Honey Roll, Pumpkin LA, and Pumpkin Crispy Rice. Service might be slow, but it is still worth it. I would definitely come here again!

We've eaten at many Japanese restaurants both here in the US and also in Japan. We were really impressed with the quality and taste of the dishes at Eggplant. The tempura was fried light and crispy and served while still very hot. The salads were very fresh and dressings were not overwhelming. The sushi was also very tasty and good sized. Service was friendly and efficient. We would eat here again.

As you drive down Ventura Blvd in Studio City, you will pass MANY Japanese/sushi restaurants. Give Eggplant a try-you will not be disappointed. The food is delightfully good and the ambiance is simple and cozy. Try the plum sake!
