Wonderful experience – Pick a plce to sit. Choose from "the bar", tatami rooms, tables, or "American-style" tatami rooms. Then order either one of the set menus or a la carte. Watch the waiter perform his magic. Think sushi bar, except it's all tempura (they make it clear that they serve no sushi or teriyaki here). The tempura is light and not greasy at all. The chef waits until you finish one course so that the tempura stays fresh and hot. Try the eel tempura. It's definitely something one doesn't find normally. One can choose to dip the tempura into a normal sauce OR lightly season it with one of the specialty salts. I can't wait to go back!

Chef Hiroshi Komatsu's strip-mall tempura bar is like a private kitchen filled with good friends. – In Short
Guests leave shoes at the door and sit behind soji screens, sipping sake while their dishes are prepared in a handmade copper caldron. The chef approaches tempura as a culinary craft, working with only fresh ingrediants and paces them for maximum hot-and-crispy impact. Flavored sea salts are offered for seasoning, and non-battered selections like seared beef and stewed Kurobuta pork are also available. Donburi rice bowl dishes and noodle bowls are offered at lunchtime.

Crispy! Very good tempura. – This is the 2nd tempura only restaurant in the greater L. A. area. You won't be disappointed if tempura is your favorite japanese cuisine. The chef's tempura making skills are unquestionable. The tempura were crispy, fresh, but not oily. Yet I think the size and quality of some of the items served could be improved. It is not the best tempura bar in L. A., but it's still a very good one.
