Oh, where to begin....there simply aren't adjectives to do justice to how exceptional the food is here. The crispy rice, topped with tuna tartare is so delicious and perfect that we went back for seconds. The perfect balance of hot and crunchy with cool and savoury. It is an absolute explosion of flavour in your mouth. The rock shrimp tempura... More

This is serious sushi. Consistently outstanding, and the fish is always top notch. Do yourself a favor and get the halibut carpaccio. It is easily the best example of this dish I have ever had anywhere, and the halibut here is always exquisite even when it's chewy everywhere else in town. If you need to warm up be sure to... More

Jinpachi is one of my favorite sushi places in L.A. The approach here is very classic - the fish is exceptional and they do not bury it under a bunch of heavy sauces and add-ons. Notable items include the miso soup (seriously, it is great here) and the halibut carpaccio. Best such dish I have had anywhere - somehow it... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a stranger in a Uber who seemed to know his food and we LOVED it. The tuna with crispy rice was insane and also highly recommend the eggplant with tempura shrimp. We are both foodies and totally rate this restaurant as some of the best Japanese food we've had. It's got a great local... More

During our staying in LA I saw this restaurant one night and after reading the review we decided to give it a try, it really blows my mind. We sat at the sushi bar and we ordered a few things, everything was very good and fresh, the tofu fried something never tried before, may you want to go the extra... More

I'm pretty much a total sushi novice but I know what tastes delicious and fresh. The flavours were amazing, the place is small and intimate and I tried sake for the first time and enjoyed it! Our hosts in LA took us to this place, their favourite Japanese restaurant, for our last dinner before we flew home and it was... More

Not a big restaurant and obviously not known well by tourists. We had locals on both sides of us. These are people who love sushi and return every week. Every dish was memorable. The wine was perfect, and the service great! We will definitely return on our next visit.

We sat at the sushi bar and ordered the omakase menu. The fish was delicious and fresh. The service was attentive. For the huge range of fish (sea urchin, Japanese barracuda, monkfish and blue fun tuna), it was worth the experience, but it did turn out to $100 per person before tax and tip.

Everything raw or cooked is really good. The sushi, the sashimi, the chef's selection of small plates, the exceptional chirashi. We have had many lunches in this restaurant. The food is always delicately prepared, delicious and fresh. Always served with a smile.

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
