Not sure what the hype is about this restaurant. We went for dinner, service was fine but the food is average at best. I would call this American Japanese, not very authentic at all.

Takami is an amazing sushi restaurant. Not only is their fish fresh every time, but they have the most amazing robata too! You must try their truffle sauce for dipping, it is so damn good. Their sashimi is truly where it's at, you can't go wrong with the halibut sashimi or the yellowtail, and their spicy tuna on crispy rice is some of the best I've had in LA! Did I mention the restaurant has a gorgeous view of the city? It's at the top of a Downtown Los Angeles building, so you can sit inside or outside and take in the lovely view. Lastly, their drinks are sooooo yummy, I wish I could try them all! All in all, if you want a great date spot, or a great place for a group venture, Takami is it!

At the top of a building, you get a really nice view on central LA.
The place is relatively classy and the prices quite high but I liked the sushi, it was fresh and tasty!

Kinda fun but strange-ish place in LA's finacial district.

You enter through what feels like an office block and land on the upper floors where you feel sandwiched between a bar, restaurant and nightclub!?! The musics kinda banging but thankfully filters out in the restaurant.

The menus good and everything I had was ok. All tasted good but I wouldn't say great.

Enjoyed the plum ginger martini. Soft shell crab was good but a touch greasy as was the vegatable tempura.

I thought the Japanese Tacos were quite good but heavy on the mayo sauce.

We shared numerous other dishes which were good too, but again nothing to scream about.

The toilets have an attendant who was kinda pushy to get tips for using his plethora of grim common fragrances amongst other things. Didn't expect that here.

I liked the open area where you can smoke and drink, possibly the best aspect to the place as, by night, you can soak up the vibey atmosphere and appreciate a city, bathed in neon and star lights.

A tad pricey but worth a drink or two.

The restaurant is located in a high rise building, but it has fun bar area as well as sushi and cooked robata yaki. Although the place is a bit pricey, it is great to take guests where the place itself can be entertaining.
