Lovely setting, attentive service, an old-world Japanese ambience. From the miso soup to the seaweed salad to elegantly presented sashimi, it's all delicious...and a pleasant dining experience.

I am a sushi snob. Before I even considered going here I read a few trip advisor reviews and the reviews were accurate. So so so good. I would say that this place goes in my top 5 of all-time sushi places. The sashimi just...More

Looks rough on the outside, but inside is one of the best Japanese restaurants around. They also do take away if you are staying around there somewhere.

There are little L-shaped strips of shops on a million corners in LA and restaurants in most of them. Shintaro on Highland in Hollywood is one. Don't overlook it because of its humble exterior. We walked into a busy local place with great ambience, 3...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
