Best Sushi in L.A. area - forget nobu and sushi roku - I'd rather go to Kaya anyday – Kaya Sushi has by far the best sushi in L.A. for the price. While their prices are more expensive than some sushi places, one bite into their fish and you'll taste nobu quality sushi at a fraction of the price. Even if someone in your party doesn't like sushi, their tempura is the best I've ever had - light, flaky, and delicious.
It does get crowded sometimes, but there have been random nights where I've been seated right away. Look for the two bald servers - they're the best ones. I've noticed they don't have a busboy or a hostess, so it does get a bit hectic at times. They don't have many big tables however - this place is more of a date spot or for a small group of cloes friends.
If you become a regular and get to know the chefs, servers, and bosses, you can come by yourself, sit at the sushi bar, and have a great time. Great people, great food, great restaurant.
AWESOME!!! SIMPLY PUT THE BEST! – Kaya and Nakked Sushi are my 2 favorite places! Kaya has the best sushi around. Prices are reasonable and the servers are friendly! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND KAYA TO ANYONE WHO LIKE FOOD!! If you aren't in the mood for sushi get hte teriyaki! YUM! I recommend the Emily's roll, Spicy Tuna and the Rainbow!!! GREAT PLACE, & I love the WATERFALL!!!!!
A must for sushi lovers. – Excellent place to impress a date. If you love sushi, then this is a place you have to try. Great setting and great service.
Get there early. – Very trendy. Good date place. Large portions. Crowded, but food comes fast. Sushi is pretty good, but not the best in LA. Tempura is excellent. Easy parking.
Satisfied... – I went to Kaya Sushi on last friday, and their sashimi and variety of rolls just surprised me with high quality. Every single penny was worth it...only bad part was just long waiting but during the weekend most of the restaurants are busy so that's one thing that i have to sacrifice......and they don't take reservations on friday saturday.
100% Satisfaction – I just went to Kaya Sushi two nights ago and the food, service, and atmosphere was fantastic. It is a great place to go on a date because the atmosphere is so romantic. The waiter was so friendly and also very quick. I had their sashimi and the piece are so fresh and huge! There's a huge projector where the customers can see the game (It's a great place to take your husband or boyfriend if you know what I mean). I would definitely go to Kaya Sushi again and again.
What about the Tempura??? – This is a great sushi restaurant, especially if you like sushi rolls. There are literally hundreds to pick from!! Although...I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the tempura. It's the best tempura I've tasted. EVER. The batter is so light and crispy. The tempura dinner is only is $15 and you get FIVE pieces of shrimp and lots of veggies. Miso soup, a nice green salad & rice are included with your meal. It's simply fabulous. The wall waterfall is definitely something to see.
Should have heeded the reviews.... – When we were looking for restaurants, I read the reviews saying that service was slow and that the food was just average for Korean fare. We gave it a chance anyway, since other people reported positive experiences. Sadly, I should have heeded the reviews. Our experience was quite the same. We had to wait almost 45 minutes for a table, the food was just average for Korean fare (but they do give big servings), and we had a hard time justifying the price. At least our server was apologetic, even if it was "too little, too late." Until they hire a host/hostess and a busser, expect to wait a long time for table service and pay more than you should for Korean food. The panchan (Korean side dishes) were very disappointing. There's better food to be found in Koreatown. We won't make the trip out to this restaurant again.
DO NOT GO HERE – When I entered the restaurant, I got no service and waited for 30 minutes. People behind me left because it took so long. Reading these reviews before hand, I decided to wait and endure bad service so that I can experience Kaya Sushi. Well, let's just say, it was horrible. The service was really bad, the food was below average, and did I mention.. the service was HORRIBLE. I will never eat there again, and I will never recommend it to anyone. If you want to go there, good luck.. As for me, I would rather have McDonald's if the service was better than Kaya. It was so bad...
Something Wonderful For Everyone! – Kaya has to be one of my favorite restaurants in the city. Everyone of my friends I've introduced to it has gotten hooked. Its a locals place, and the friendly staff seems to know all the customers. The variety is unbelievable. Vegetarian? Check. Low Carb? There's an entire section of low carb rolls! The Korean food is excellent as well. The spicy Seafood Tofu Soon soup, served bubbling in a hot stone pot and overflowing with clams, oysters, calamari, and other fresh fish, is to die for. Also, despite what City Search says here, they are not open for lunch or on Sundays. But they do get busy, so go early! And -- very importantly -- this is NOT a place for kids!
