Foursquare Tips

  • It is occasionally difficult to ascertain whether the most impressive bit of a dish is the chewy slab of Japanese halibut fin or the thimble-sized cucumber garnishing the fish.
  • The fish is as fresh as Urasawa - this is my new fav restaurant in LA-Amazing!
  • Featured on the Netflix documentary series Chef's Table, which was directed by the same man who did Jiro Dreams of Sushi
  • Chef Niki Nakayama crafts 13-course tasting menus that feature exquisite, meticulously plated food, such as blue crab, stuffed zucchini blossoms, a dusted carrot sorbet, and many more tasty surprises.
  • ..... And I jizzed in my pants
  • Sit back and enjoy the garden-fresh produce at this contemporary kaiseki spot:
  • Great modern twist on kaiseki. Niki nakayama's sushi skills is
  • This was the best meal of my life. Every course just got better. I can't wait to (afford) to go back.
  • Named Best Kaiseki in our 2014 Best of L.A. issue!
  • Leave it all to the chef, get the wine pairing! it's an amazing experience!
  • Niki Nakayama did away with the nine-course dinner, so your only option is the thirteen-course kaiseki (or vegetarian menu); youll be thankful for the extra rounds of Alaskan king crab and sea bass.
  • Chef Niki Nakayama trained under Takao Izumida and Morihiro Onodera, composing stunning plates that are creative and flavorful. The wine selection might be the best in town for a sushi restaurant.
  • Black sesame creme brule
  • Go for the 13 course tasting instead of the 9, unless you eat like a bird. Delicious, beautiful food, but portions are like that of any other artisanal Japanese restaurant.
  • Chef Niki Nakayama of n/naka has created a seven-course foie gras kaiseki menu which will highlight different cooking methods of foie gras complemented by various Japanese flavors.
  • Extraordinary omakase (except the pasta). You must have the wine/sake pairing for the full experience.
  • Kimura sake is amazing and goes well with most of the omakase tasting menu
  • Amazing and beautiful experience. Each course and dish was delicious and unique. I especially loved the uni, roe, and wagyu dishes. Even the basic appetizers were good. Some of the best desserts.
  • Absolutely amazing dining dxperience
  • Dishes marry Japanese and Californian cuisines, a direct reflection of Nakayamas heritage and her Los Angeles upbringing.
