Looking for a unique lunch, this small restaurant on a side street just off the strand drew me in. Prix fixe lunch menu was delicious & filling & allowed me to sample several delightful menu items in one meal. Presentation creative & pretty. Soup/app/entree/sm. dessert for $20...a nice deal, too!

Wonderful quiet place just off the Strand. Service was great and the sushi was creative and excellent. Definitely not a standard sashimi and roll joint. We left very happy and content.

This little place is adorable - the decor is so perfect for the small size. We had reservations which I highly suggest as this place is little and very popular. We were three seated at a table that should be for two, but it was ok. It was a bit cramped once all the plates were delivered but we managed... More

It is really a super place with super service. Gluten free, vegan organic welcome. We were 7 at about 2PM after lunch place was empty when we arrived. The food was exceptional except for the spicy soup miso ramen. None of us who tried cared for it. it wasn't bad it just wasn't up to par with the rest. The... More

We were so impressed by the variety of dishes, the large number of vegan options, and the wonderful service. It is family style so you share your dishes as a family so you don't each have to order something to keep the budget within reason. I have also taken my friend to lunch there and the miso ramen soup was... More

This is a very small, intimate Asian health food restaurant. The wait staff is always welcoming and helpful and there is a variety of interesting dishes. I love their kale salad and sautéed broccoli. My husband is into the many types of sushi. They have a big saki list and a nice little wine list. The prices are very reasonable... More

This gem is close to the beach in Manhatten Beach, Ca. After a boardwalk walk sushi. Significantly seriously great place for sushi, fresh salmon, cod and all things fresh! Just delighted our grandkids with the excellent brown rice, fresh food served with a huge smile. Hard to beat! Go you will love the authentic atmosphere and great servers.

RICE is great! We were so impressed by the variety of dishes, the large number of vegan options, and the wonderful service. I've included photos of most of our order so you can appreciate the variety of ingredients included in each dish. The glazed squash was so good that we've tried to replicate it at home. We got a nice... More

I had the Sunset, which was shrimp on brown rice. Verrry good! Staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Space is smaller, not ideal for big groups of people. But decor is pretty. A little bit pricey, especially if drinking alcohol. Overall, would definitely go back!

Went here craving sushi. What we got was overpriced "healthy" brown rice sushi. Fish was fresh and tasty but the sushi rolls were not enjoyable. Sushi is already incredibly healthy so to only have brown rice option is kind of ridiculous. They also don't give you a sushi list outside of their premium rolls. So you have to ask if... More
