“Noisy, lively restaurant!”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Looking for a place to eat, we decided to try Katsuya. The restaurant was extremely busy, noisy and full of lively diners. The food was on the expensive side but creative in presentation and quite good. This not a place for a romantic dinner, but would be great for a night out with friends if you don't mind screaming to be heard!

good food, top service.

“Good Sushis in an electric atmosphere”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Katsuya, first of all, its an amazing decorum. A vaste lounge, around a central patio where the japanese chiefs are operating. A very loud music, giving more of a nightclub atmosphere than one of a cosy restaurant. Be prepared to literally shout at your neighours to entertain some conversation. Cooking is great, though. So we ended up with a take away to our room in the Redbury next door, where we were staying. Peacefull environment with delicious sushis, that was a better bet. Be prepared to dowload at least 50 Usd per capita + wine, slightly too much for what it is, but it is always full, so why complaining? Enjoy....and pay.

“Great service + Superb Food!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We walked in with no reservations - an LA no, no. Instead of treating us like 2nd class citizens, they couldn't have been nicer. Our waitress was a gem (diamond!!) She helped us find and order a meal that was perfect for us. Total decadence at a fair price!

“Fantastic food, trendy restaurant!”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

Fantastic food with great service.

A great trendy restaurant with lots of glammed up customers and paps waiting outside. We went looking not quite so dolled up but still smart and didn't feel out of place. Really helpful waitress suggested great dishes and the price was really reasonable.

Would definitely return!
