Bar Hayama is a friendly place with a lot of regulars. You can sit around a fire outside, and there is an inside bar and sushi bar. They have a couple tatami tables. At night the outside fire and table side heat torches make it...More

Very decent and friendly sushi bar. They also had sport bar and and fire pit outdoor. So you can come here solo to enjoy some good sushi and sake or come with friends and family for beer and bar foods.

This is a tiny hole in the wall. Happy hour menu is lovely 👌🏼 serving seared tuna, fried shrimp, chicken salad, Brussels sprouts, and whatever your heart desires. Very reasonable prices.

This is a nice option on the less crowded portion of Sawtelle for Japanese food. The restaurant, with the fire table and walled setting, was pretty. The bento box special at dinner was generous and delicious. The happy hour drinks and snacks were a great...More

Was very disappointed with the quality and freshness of the very average sushi/sashimi we were served here, on the other hand the tempura shrimp were great! Loved sitting around the fire pit but felt that the restaurant lacked cohesion....rather like it's sushi!
