    Really impressed with the sushi here. Some of the best that I've ever had. The service too was excellent. Highly recommend. Skip the hot plates and dive into the sushi!

    Take the opportunity to order "omakase" from chef Katsuya himself. You'll be served in a private sushi with tremendous service and of course with the chef catering your heart's content.

    Go see Jeff at the sushi bar and ask him for his special seared albacore sushi dish. Delish!

    the best deal they have is the "Raku Mori" for 2. it's a steal for $28 - comes with 5 of their best sashimi dishes, spicy tuna on crispy rice, and a baked crab handroll. everything is split for 2!

    Our concierge Valerie at Thompson Beverly Hills says that this is the best sushi in the valley. Go during happy hour and enjoy the $1 beer.

    Spicy Tuna w/ Baked Crab Roll is the winner. Only available @ Kiwami, not Katsuya or IZAKA-YA.

    Good as fusion food - definitely not for purists tho. Sake by the bottle is way overpriced (up to 7x import price), so stick with the carafes.
