Not a very big place but the menu is extensive: rolls, bowls, curry, sake, and much more. For about twelve bucks you can get a filling bowl of salmon, rice, eggs, nori, with salad and miso soup.

A small restaurant in Japan Town that is good but not great, especially given the high prices. The menu is extensive, yet seems repetitive. Probably better Japanese food at a better price elsewhere.

We ordered a variety of dishes and everyone said theirs was good. I had the Crab Croquettes and Nabeyaki Udon and both were very good. I think my favorite thing we ordered was off of the Happy Hour menu, I can't remember the name of it but it was 4 pieces of delicious fried chicken..... it was heaven, I could... More

Was craving some Katsu, and this place came highly recommended by the hotel I was staying at. I'd have to say it is really good, but it is also fairly pricey…. about $17 for Katsu with Rice, and a few plates of relish along with it. They were busy on the Saturday night I visited them, but the clientele seemed... More

This place reminds me of the Japanese restaurants of my youth - a little crowded, a huge menu, nothing too fancy but everything well flavored like your grandmother might have made. No tweezers or disconstruction here. When we arrived at 6:30 there were a few tables open but by the time we left at 7:45 there were at least 4... More

Their spicy tuna donburi is the best! I absolutely loooooooove it! Every time I'm craving some fresh spicy tuna over rice, this is the place to be. Never has there ever been a wait since I've been coming here the last 4 years.

This is a quaint little restaurant in Japan Town that is easily missed if you're not looking for it. When I say little, I mean little, although they do manage to squeeze quite a few people in there. I'd estimate that the restaurant can seat somewhere around 40 people, but it doesn't look like it. This place seems pretty busy.... More

This restaurant serves all the Japanese standards and has a lot of combination choices. I ordered the spicy tofu as an appetizer and the brown rice/veggie tempura/soba noodle combination. I especially enjoyed the tofu appetizer which was a good serving. I enjoyed the veggie tempura; but expecting soba noodles I was served what appeared to be ramen or wheat noodles.... More

We traveled through California this summer and visited many Japanese restaurants. This was by far our favorite. So much so, that in our short visit to L.A, we came here at least three times! There is a good variety to chose from, the food was always fresh, and the service was good. We also found the price to be very... More

Spicy chicken is great, as is their karate (fried chicken). Also they have one of the best tempura soba dishes in the area. Service is pretty good and though it's a small place, the ambiance is pretty relaxed. And this is a great place if you like jazz, as they play classic jazz (not smooth jazz).

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
