The different Musha branches have varying menus. This one is tailored more for tastes for those who do not eat Asian food regularly or who are out for culinary adventure. There are some spectacular offerings, like the rice tossed inside a scooped out parmesan cheese,...More

Not your everyday Japanese restaurant. The menu is hand drawn and contains a very diverse selection of Japanese food (mostly Tokyo style?). Almost everything I tried was excellent. Service is great, please ask for advice before ordering.

Friendly service, good food but evening marred by waiting 45 minutes to pay our bill. The reason? They only have one credit card machine. It ruined what would otherwise have been a great night. Get a grip Musha, invest in another machine. Or two!

I've had excellent Japanese in lots of countries, including Japan, but the sashimi here is among the best. In fact, I've never had better. The rest of the food I had was also excellent, and the price was reasonable for the quality.

Great Japanese fusion food. Must have the cheese risotto, pumpkin dip and octopus omelette. Don't forget the black sesame ice cream for dessert.

Fantastic food. The taste, the presentation, the variety, it's all there. Reservations are a must. Try everything if you can, do 5-10 visits if you have to. What a dining experience. Something we will never forget in the near future. We were in a private...More

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
