Yabu has two stores; the other one is in West Hollywood. The food, service and prices are very similar, so I'll refer you to my review of the West Hollywood store for comments on those things. As between the two stores, this one (on Pico in West Los Angeles) tends to be busier, so reservations are important. The Pico branch also has a nicer bar to sit at. But, the West Hollywood store (on La Cienaga) has more pleasant seating at tables, and also has an outdoor patio in the back. But, both stores are excellent, so enjoy!

I was there with my son and relatives on new year's eve to eat toshikoshi soba (there is a Japanese tradition to eat noodle on new year's eve to wish for health and long life). I ordered a lunch set of zarusoba and tendon and both of them were very tasty. Tempura was crisp and soba was cooked perfectly. I would definitely eat there again when I'm in West L.A.
