This is a tiny hole in the wall. Happy hour menu is lovely 👌🏼 serving seared tuna, fried shrimp, chicken salad, Brussels sprouts, and whatever your heart desires. Very reasonable prices.

We visited Bar Hayama at happy hour and we enjoyed a number of sushi rolls, crispy rice and spicy tuna, hayama crispy roll and tempura roll. All were very good and the garlic green beans and miso eggplant quite tasty. It was great that they...More

This is a local Japanese restaurant and sushi bar. I would only recommend eating here if you can sit outside (they have heaters) and look at the large and gorgeous fire pit. The offerings are somewhat limited when it comes to non-sushi items and the...More

If you are a big Dodgers fan, you must visit this restaurant because of their good ambience and great food. The sushi bar is decorated with so many Dodgers bubble head dolls, photos etc. I think they're big enthusiasts. Toshi, owner-chef is fun. There's a...More

Was very disappointed with the quality and freshness of the very average sushi/sashimi we were served here, on the other hand the tempura shrimp were great! Loved sitting around the fire pit but felt that the restaurant lacked cohesion....rather like it's sushi!

I just had lunch here. For $17 you can get the hugest bento box I've ever seen: 3 types, I got one with 3 kinds of sashimi, shrimp and vegetable tempura, a divine potsticker, unique potatoes with green beans (no mayo! great sauce), some side...More

I was there to celebrate a friends birthday. My friend told us to be there exactly at 5.15 so we can be the first at door when they open at 5.30. Although we had reservation, we wanted to get a seat around the fire place....More
