Have gone here twice, once with a very large group of diners for a business meal and another time with two girlfriends. The food (seafood is usually what we order) was fresh and interesting. The people-watching is fantastic and the atmosphere very lively!

Awesome meal at Chaya last night. Great service and fantastic food. It was a little expensive, but we really enjoyed it. They bring a whole fish down, and then will cut up half as sushi, and the other half as grilled. Will visit here again...More

I used to come here all the time because it's always been a great popular place with an amazing vibe and delicious food. I've never had a bad dish here. We ordered two entrees and both were mouth-watering. Great bar scene too!

This place had a nice service and real tasty food. Try the California Rolls - they are fantastic. Deserts: the cakes the three times Banana: both will end up in a smile in your face.

We went here for happy hour and ordered 5 dishes and 2 cocktails. All the dishes were very small, but tasted good. The chicken karage was at least a better-sized portion. Our cocktails were small and tasted watered down and were not good value. The...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

The Chaya restaurant family originated when Hikage Chaya opened in Hayama, Japan. From this initial tea house, that opened 390 years ago, the Tsunoda family has expanded into French bistros and pastry shops throughout Japan and introduced the brand to the U.S. in 1984 with the opening of Chaya Brasserie in Beverly Hills. Since then, Chaya has opened locations in Venice, San Francisco, Downtown Los Angeles, and LAX. The cuisine at each restaurants can best be described as modern Japanese though each restaurant has a distinct personality reflecting their different locations. Corporate Executive Chef, Shigefume Tachibe is best known for pioneering modern Japanese cuisine and his contributions to the Asian-Fusion movement. His chef coat and knife are in permanent display in the Smithsonian. The most important tenet of Chaya's philosophy is high-level omotenashi (hospitality), bringing the Japanese teahouse tradition of warm and personal service to each guest.
