My husband and I eat Japanese often and Torihei is one of the BEST in Los Angeles - fantastic ingredients, meats, traditional and even fusion dishes and just great. We love the meatballs, the octopus with fresh wasabi, the cabbage with chili oil, the chicken...More

There are many good japanese restaurants in the area but this one is very authentic, fresh and many, many japanese customers (always a good sign when you want traditional food). Excellent quality and great sake selection, too.

Make a reservation! It's almost always very crowded, but the table turnover is not too bad. It's one of my favorite yakitori place. My favorite is their cucumber salad and their beef tongue skewer. So good! Great service. Pair of your meal with a apple...More

It was well worth the hassle of a 1hr. Drive from Santa Monica down to Torrance. Torihei is as authentic an Izakaya restaurant you can find outside of Japan. 6 of us ate about 30% of the menu and we were pleased with every dish....More

Great service along with good food. It did feel like if I was at a yakitori place in Japan, but with more room and personal space. Would return if I was in the neighborhood again

We offer an impressive selection of fresh and flavorful Izakaya, Oden, and Yakitori items, coupled with unbeatable service and an intimate atmosphere for a full robata dining experience.

This traditional method of cooking is just one of the many ways in which we set ourselves apart from the competition. Torihei also offers a huge selection of premium sake to enjoy with one of our appetizing meals.
