This my my first experience in this style restaurant (I have never in my life cooked my own meal in a restaurant). My son and his girlfriend moved out here 2 years ago and have been wanting to try this place. I do not think anyone was disappointed. The waitress was very patient as we asked a couple of time...

Tonight repeat from yesterday shabu bowl with brown rice and veggies. I commented to the waitress how fresh the shitakes and vegetables are. The mussels and scallops were a superb variety. Very newly redone and very relaxing atmosphere.

Very pleasant surprise once you pass the waiting list and time with a lack of front office service. Great choice of meat and great and helpful service at the table, with a smile and good recommendation, particularly the drops of VERY spicy oil ! Nice and casual evening. A reservation system would be very appreciated

Firstly, the restaurant has a cool, industrial feel with decor akin to an urban/warehouse with concrete floors and a loft like setting. You sit around... More

Been there several time both for business and pleasure and it's a very cool place. You boil your own choice of food in front of you. Love it!

We were there the first week that they were open. They were lovely and attentive and comped dessert and saki. Food was great and it was a lot of fun. You cook your meat (chicken, beef, fish, seafood) and veggies in water which become a broth which they then serve you as a second course - we were very full... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
