Recently, for my 21st birthday, I had the great privilege of dining at Chef Niki Nakayama's hidden gem in Culver City, and I can safely say that I could not have hoped to celebrate the end of a long internship in Dublin and my 21st...More

The whole concept behind what you eat moved me. It took my breath away. Why o why this restaurant has no stars. Are they sleeping in Michelin world. Three stars from me

I celebrated my birthday at n/naka, and could not have asked for a more perfect experience. This was my first time trying Kaiseki cuisine, knowing full well that Chef Niki puts a modern twist on the centuries old haute, Japanese tradition. We did one sake...More

My wife and I both agree; the meal we had at n/naka was the best tasting meal we'd ever had. Some of the flavor combinations (like the lemon-ish puree with the scallop and soy sauce) were like magic, and every dish was incredibly tasty. The...More

They offer valet but we parked on the street on Overland with no issues. If you plan to do the wine or sake pairing I recommend not driving. They are VERY generous with the alcohol on the pairing.
