great for patio, rolls – this is a good spot for sushi rolls. the house one is the best. avoid the one with avo and eel sauce -- to gloopy, globby sweet. patio is pretty and best place to sit. it's tucked in the back. i've heard this is a fave haunt with many celebs. staff are very nice and friendly. convenient to bar-hop afterward.

Best food in town – Best food in town

Food is amazing. Every time I come here, I feel like I never want to leave. Very chic atmosphere with a relaxing mood.

The service is great and the staff really does a terrific job at taking care of you.

The appetizers are delicious.

Theres plenty of places to park: theres a parking lot across the street and a parkin garage up the street within walking distance.

Most of the time I find myself looking at my watch waiting for the food to come, but here I was so entertained with the fun atmosphere that I was pleasantly surprised when my food arrived

Good authetic Japanese – Great authentic Japanese food here but they clueless staff have no idea what is good. Don't even bother asking them unless they are Japanese.

The American waiters who work here don't really know their stuff.

That said, still great food can be had here.

Wonderful – My favorite new sushi bar! The sexy roll and the teru roll are my new favorite things. Plus their patio outback is perfect, I highly recommend it.

Delicious food, excellent service, great price! – we just had an early dinner at Kiwami (where Tama used to be). they really took care of us. the food was delicious. we started with this sashimi sampler that included those crispy spicy tuna cakes & blue crab roll. so good. had some Spanish mackerel (from Japan) and some Aji. washed it down with some Miso.

we will 100% go back!

For sushi lovers – I didn’t think that I could have better sushi than Katsu-Ya & Izaka-Ya. Surprise! Kiwame is a culinary event. From the Japanese style decor and delightful service, to the sake nesting in hot water filled pottery. The baby tuna (yeah, the name is a bit disturbing) is the best piece of fish I have ever tasted. The amazing confetti tempura was light and surprising. You can still have all the Katsuya faves but there is so much new goodness. Next time the privet sushi bar the chef himself works at. Absolutely worth a trip to Studio City.

BEWARE!!! They overcharge when you are not looking – Twice we have been hoodwinked! The first time there were some extra sakis on our bill. OOPS!

Then we ordered to go food and they added an 8 percent gratuity....They don't give you an itemized list, just a bill with the total!! Make sure you ask for the list of food! I have found this in another sushi restaurant as well. since you (me) can't read Japanese..they figure you will never know!!!
