“Stick with the Sushi”
Reviewed April 12, 2008

If you want to grab some sushi (and sake, beer, etc) on the way home from the beach, Kifune is your place. It's popular with locals, and has a nice, Japanese ambiance (not sure about the Christmas lights, though). Stay clear of the regular menu- if you want traditional Japanese, head over to Sawtelle. My wife and I were shocked by what Kifune tried to pass off as restaurant food, with inflated prices to boot.

“I have two words for you...”
Reviewed January 18, 2008

I have two words for you Ti-Ger! At least that's what the sushi chef calls himself, on more sober nights he has another name. Food, delish, atmosphere, sushi bar a must, sit down is good too. It's an adventure!! Hint B.AM.F. is the badassmuthaf...a, just order it. Tiger takes bribes, he likes beer.
