Ranked #3 of 555 Restaurants in Torrance
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 5, 2014

The Japanese market had a large selection of food. The fruit was very nice quality. The only negative about the market is check out took too long. When customer lines get long, the checkers wait too long to call for help.
There were a number of mini restaurants selling an assortment of Japanese cuisine within the building, arranged like a mini mall. There were also two bakeries selling sweets and a Japanese book store.

Great selection of restaurants in a Japanese food court. As a regular visitor to West L.A. I have been here many times. The best Tempura , I have ever had. I recommend the Tokyo Tempura place.
Amazingly cheap, a whole meal for 10 Dollars !
Self Service.

This is the best place to experience "Japan". Mitsuwa market has all Japanese stuff you need: food, grocery, and household stuff ... all in a single place.

The market has a large area where you can buy authentic Japanese food and eat right in the market place. It has a large parking lot. Next to the market, there is a small plaza where you can find other stores were you can buy books, souvenirs.... Highly recommend place to visit.

The food is great and it is simply like one is in Japan. Little Japan came to Torrance, California. Must try the Ramen, the store with the most queue and they ask for Cash only. They only sell Ramen with many options.

The idea of this supermarket and the terrific self serve food court is very good. We went here with my son who works nearby. It is mostly catering to Japanese but there are others also and it fills up quickly for lunch.

I had chicken katsu ramen which had a lot chicken with a nice crust and tender chicken. Plus, I ordered 5 huge gyoza which were very good. My wife had ramen noodles and son had something similar. While the food tasted good, we believe it was loaded with MSG which leaves you extremely thirsty afterwards.

I would go back and ask first about the MSG.
