Shunji takes a vegetable-centric approach to sushi in a former barbecue and chili joint in West L.A. Shunji wields incredible fish and produce in a way that's only possible in L.A.
Best omakase I have had in LA so far. Pricey, but worth the treat compared to others. Tomato tofu, squid ink truffled egg, and toro platter are three of the top sushi dishes I have ever had.
From FL, best Japanese food ever!
Not worth the money and not even close to what you would get at other top japanese restaurants such as urusawa, sushi zo or asanebo.
Best Japanese restaurant in LA
Chef Shunji spends as much time on tomatoes (his agedashi tomato tofu), as he does on octopus and Dungeness crab. Be just as mindful when working your way through all seven varieties of snapper.
Not for a Sushi novice or the non adventurous. Don't come up in here with the intention to order and dictate but bow down and be schooled by Samuri masters under the tutelage of Mr. Shunji. "Omakase"!
One of the best Japanese restaurant of the country. Very nice and unpretentious atmosphere, too!
Shunji will open for lunch, Mon-Fri, from noon to 2 PM, starting Tuesday, October 1, 2013. They will also be open for dinner on Sundays starting in October.
Amazing! Be brave and go for the omakase! It was amazing!
I have never dined in the countryside of Japan, but Shunji is what I would expect to find if I did. It was not unrefined, quite the opposite in fact -- it was understated elegance! A must when in LA..
We got the Japanese Style Tasting for $100 per person and it includes this very special dessert! 4 fruits! Lol! Go to Asanebo and get your money's worth!
とっても美味しいです! Tasting menuをいただいたのですが日本酒にあう繊細な季節のお料理とお寿司、とっても美味しかったです。
