Great Location, in the middle of WeHo, Close to Bevery Centre and other Shopping Areas.
Excellent atmosphere!

Staff friendly and efficient.

Food however was not fully convincing, some dishes were OK, but not really outstanding.

I would rather come for the atmosphere than for the Food.

Sushi is fresh; wonderful assortment of rolls -- and specials that are mouthwatering. Very kid friendly -- kids have special meal that looks so appetizing that adults are envious. Staff is extremely courteous and helpful (love folks who are new to sushi, etc). Vegetables are especially well prepared and presented.

If you are looking for traditional Japanese this is definitely not your place, but for inventive, innovative dishes in the Japanese vein Izaka-ya is terrific. The atmosphere is always fun, young and buzzing and the dishes are small but fairly priced so that one can order a good selection, taste several ones without breaking the bank.
Especially good is the spicy tuna with crispy rice, the yellowtail sashimi with the crispy onion topping, the shishito peppers and the ethnic shrimps.

You can never have a bad experience by going to Izaka-ya on 3rd street. The sushi is amazing - with each bit your taste buds are happier and happier. Enjoy!

Restaurant was quite busy and we had our first meal in LA here. Sashimi/Sushi was average but we were both used to authentic Japanese. The popcorn shrimps and smoked eggplant were both good. Buzzling ambiance but we'd probably prefer the other meal across the road at Sushi Roku.
