As a midwesterner, I always try and get sushi when I'm on the west coast. This one ranks with the 2-3 best I've had. Expensive, and crowded, but they do have a fabulous "first ten customers" special at lunch where there are 17 items for ~ $11.

We stumbled across this place whilst out walking - not something you do too much in LA! It looked good from the outside and we were hungry there and then. We took a chance and I'm glad we did. The food was excellent. The staff were good too and the chef's were all Japanese. Lot's of locals - always a... More

A great food experience is the right mix of location, food and management. There is nothing that I hate more than deciding not to visit anymore a restaurant with great food because of poor management. Unfortunately that was the case of Izaka-ya of katsuya. During last year too many times happened that I decided to pass on some behaviors of... More

We had to wait for almost an hour, but it was more than worth it. Some of the best sushi we ever had, perhaps even the best. We sat at the bar, which enabled us to see the five chefs at work. A great sight! Very friendly, efficient and quick service, notwithstanding the fact that the restaurant was filled until... More

We had dinner at the Izaka-Ya last weekend, and it was by far the best sushi I've had for a very long time! We were a group of 4 and ordered several house specials, as well as classic rolls and we were impressed by the freshness and quality of the tuna/salmon. Taro our waiter gave us great recommendations for what... More

Being lovers of Japanese cuisine, and only in the area for a few days, my partner and I were led here by the good reviews. We dined without a reservation on a Sunday night and were promptly seated at the sushi bar. The restaurant was packed to the brim. We were well looked after by Dan. The seafood ceviche is... More

Excellent sushi for a good price in West Hollywood Restaurant is very loud and busy filled with locals. Highly recommend the spicy tuna on crispy rice. All the food is so delicious and the sushi melts in your life.
