One of the best local sushi spots in West Hollywood – I have enjoyed their lunch specials Monday thru Friday from 11 am to 2 pm. I have consistently received excellent quality sashimi and delicious fresh crispy salads and vegetables. The portions are big and the cost for lunch is very affordable.
For dinner I recommend all of the salads. If you like you can buy their miso dressing to take home. I particularly like the seaweed salad for $7.00 or the house salad for $6.00.
I have three favorite items in the menu. First is the Cosmo Roll served cut. I don't see it on the menu but you can ask for it. Shrimp, crab, yellow tail, avocado wrapped in soy paper and sprinkled with sesame seeds. Served with a shoyu sauce. $15.00 a roll and worth it.
Second favorite is the halibut carpaccio. Perfectly sliced and served with drops of citrus juice, olive oil and sprinkled with whole red fresh pepper-corns. $14.00
Third favorite is the new crab roll. It is not on their website but they do list it on their restaurant menu. It has the meat of the crab leg whole layered inside soy-paper with rice, spices. The portion is enough for only one person and its $7.00. Ask to have it with avocado.
Aside from my favorite dishes the head chef always acknowledges his customers. The serving staff is attentive and most importantly modifications are quickly made.
Almost forgot, they have spicy grilled peppers which are prepared in the same style as in Northern Spain - Galicia. You will have a good time here all around. Once you go there, come back and give me some feed back. I can't believe I've been there so many times and this is my first review.
Great Place for Lunch – This little joint is a great place to stop and have lunch. They seem to have one of the best priced lunch menus in the area and have a friendly staff.
They have nice out door seating perfect for a summer dinner. It is casual for friends but cute enough for a date. Highly recommend if you are in the area.
Funny restaurant – Fresh food & reasonable price, cute waiter with great service plus sense of humor, funny! Loved atmosphere, good 4 before u go out west Hollywood!!!
Best Sushi in the Country! – I've lived all over the country. I love sushi. Therefore, I've tried sushi everywhere - and this place, hands down, is the best sushi restaurant ANYWHERE! The food is amazing - it is always freshly prepared and delicious. The tempura is crunchy but not thick and soggy like you get at some places. I highly recommend the crispy spicy tuna - you will be so happy if you try it. The service is wonderful - you never have to ask for anything. They anticipate your needs beautifully. Just when you're thinking "I could use some more water" you look over and you have a filled glass. Whenever my husband and I want to go out to dinner this is the first place we think to go!
Great Sushi, Amazing Service – My Fiance and I love going here - really good sushi, and the service is even better. Great atmosphere, highly recommend it.
Fantastically Fresh – Treating myself with such delicious fishes at Ariya is one of the most exciting and anticipating weekend events to me. People you meet there are generally freindly and seems happy and enjoy their food just like I do. Cheffs are prefessional and service is fantastic. Having good time with friends and with such a good food ( try salmon or halibut carpachio - ooh ooh ooh~~~you'll love it) what more do you want. Not only the food but the atmosphere seems improving, too.
I found out they put up new parking signs recently. I hope this means easier parking. Check this place out. You'll appreicate me.
Love it – Im pretty new to sushi and japanese food. Ariya has a wonderful menu! Evrytime we go we try new things but have our favorite shirmp and eggplant (amazing) and pink peppercorn salad. The rolls are fresh a must try is the OMG roll. I have brought many people here and everyone has enjoyed it even the sushi "veterans" staff is friendly and prices are very reasonable.
Not the same – For anyone who used to eat at this restaurant when it was known as Murikami, you are in for a dissappointment. Still a nice place with good service, but the sushi is not up to snuff. Unfortunately I'm not aware of any better options in the immediate vicinity.
Great sushi, reasonable price... – This place is great if you want to have great sushi in a nice, clean, and comfortable setting. The best way to experience this place is to sit at the sushi bar and trust the sushi chef to prepare your entire meal of his choosing - you won't be disappointed.
