Favorite Neighborhood Sushi Bar – I used to live just down the street from Kifrune and would frequently walk over at least once a week with my husband. The servers and wait staff were always so very friendly. The food was always great - even if you didn't order sushi. And, the price isn't too bad, comparatively. Kifune is one of the many things I really miss about our old neighborhood. It's excellent!
excellent – i love this place. the food is great. theres never a wait. Order the boat. its the bomb.
This is the best sushi restaurant in LA if you like great fish and xxx joke telling chefs. Sit at the bar with all the locals and listen to head chef Tiger Ibara tell jokes and hit on women while he prepares the best fish in LA. You have to eat the salmon.
Better than I expected – Some good stuff. The BSC roll was nice. It's a good neighborhood place. I wouldn't drive to it.
It's A Neighborhood Treasure – I hesitate to write too much, for fear that the place will be overrun by new people and I will no longer get my spot at the sushi bar. I eat here once a week, sometimes twice. The food is amazing, the chefs are creative...usually I just say, "make something (insert adjective)" and they invent a roll or adapt an existing menu item to suit my tastes. We're all on a first name basis, and on any given night, I'll also know at least 2 people dining at the bar. Proposals, first dates, holiday dinners...I've been there for all of them...and hoisted many a glass in the process.
Favorite Fish – Friendly, fun place for all to have great sushi. We've been eating here for years and have felt like family from the first visit. After frequenting sushi bars from top to bottom, we still prefer the quality of fish and casual company at Kifune.
Maybe the Cooked Food is OK – I don't know what there teriyaki is like, but I have tried the sushi and once was definitely enough. Regulars raved about it--I wanted to take them by the hand and lead them to a good sushi restaurant. The atmosphere was certainly fun--lots of people buying drinks for the sushi chefs, but I would not go back there unless I was going to try the cooked food.
soemthign for everyone – this place has a certain bennigan's style to it so every type of party from casual couple to a beer swilling group can have a great sushi dinner and fun time here - it isn't a place for a romantic, quiet dinner for two though.
