Went here for a rock charity event benefiting the salvation army. It is essentially a basement below the surrounding stores on Beverly Dr. but the decor gives it a nice lounge like feel. There's a small stage for live bands/acts. Ordered a few drinks, which were pretty expensive but what can you expect in Beverly Hills. They weren't bad either.
This place would be hard to see off of La Cienega, except for the flashy strip club right next door! I went when it wasn't busy, but it seems like it could be really noisy. A large party that took up most of the restaurant was just leaving and it was hard to walk through. But the food was very good. The Ahi taco sashimi was probably the most unique and best tasting item. I was upset though because people on yelp said first timers usually get free dessert, but I didn't! They even asked if it was my first time. LAME!
If you're familiar with Curry House then this is essentially a mall food court version. Menu items and portions are pretty much the same as the restaurant but at least $4 less. I got a menchi katsu for $6 or $7 where as it would be $10 or $11 at the restaurant. Quality doesn't suffer either.
Not as good as Kings or local place but on par with L&L. They give a lot of food for a pretty reasonable price. Usually I can't finish the amount of food they give.
All I have to say is this place is so good that I drive from my office in Lawndale all the way to this place after work on most Friday's (Like an hour drive at least) and then go back to my home in Long Beach after. I probably spend just as much on gas to eat here as I do for the meal itself (not really but it feels like I do!). Usually get the Sansai Udon combo with Spicy Tuna Don. The one disappointment on the menu is the gyoza. I would think a place like this would have better gyoza. Also one time I put my name on the list one cold evening and after about an hour I became suspicious. It was crowded so I didn't expect to get in quick but when I was suddenly the only person waiting I knew I was probably skipped. Sure enough I checked the list and my name was crossed out with "called name" written next to it. Liar! I was sitting outside right by the door the whole time...he just didn't want to go out into the cold. Also when it's busy they are sometimes slow with the check....but despite all my complaints I still give this place a 5 star. The noodles are that amazing.
I usually go here for lunch during work. The food here is alright and the price is reasonable. The salmon bowl is very good. I used to order the chicken and/or beef bowl, but I was pretty impressed with the salmon when I decided to be adventurous. My biggest problem with them is that they advertised a special promotion where they give a free salad with any bowl, a free drink with any plate. Every time I go or one of my coworkers go there, they change their story regarding the special so that we don't get entirely. One time they flat out said you can't get a free salad with the bowl when it says it right there on the promotion menu that you can. It's still reasonably priced though so can't REALLY complain.
I used to eat here regularly before I ended up moving out of the area. They have great udon/soba, bowls, tempura, and sushi. The waiters and waitresses are all very nice also. They also remember us whenever we go, unlike at a lot of restaurants that I go to regularly also. I actually went for the first time in two years recently and the guy still remembered me. Unfortunately the steak I ordered was cooked very well done (I like it medium rare), which is why dropped it a star...but it would have been a 4.5 if I could.
