The restaurant is located in front of Al Hirschfeld theatre and has a wide variety of dishes - from Sushi to Bibimbap. We enjoyed several of the sushi options, the Odeon noodles dish was good and also the kimchi. Good prices and good food.

We were referd to the restaurant by the hotel consiger, he mentioned that the place has great sushi and is more laid back than other sushi places in the area. The place has a nice and simple decore. Our waitress was very helpful and efficient....More

Am not a fan of touristy theater district restaurants, and only went with this choice because we were a large group going to Kinky Boots and I didn't want to deal with extensive logistics. We were happily surprised by the taste and prices at Kodama....More
