    The men's restrooms are vandalized, the mirrors have graffiti, and the hand soap is "naked" over the sink, in large containers without the proper dispenser. This downsized the restaurant experience and made it look "cheap."

    These SBE copy cat Katsuya’s are not as good as the OG spots. The places are nicer to be sure, but I prefer having a good meal vs a nice exterior. The portions are tiny here for the same things you would get at the OG Katsuya.

    Ordered the summer Omikase special as a main course. Also ordered 2 different shrimp rolls and the spicy edamame. I can’t recall having sushi that horrible literally. For a total of 260.00 dollars and zero flavor and poor quality… I will NEVER return. Truly a disappointment l. Our server was polite and did her best given the poor quality of sushi. Save your money and go somewhere else.

    I love katsuya. I come at least once a month. I love the salmon caviar.. that’s my favorite. For tuna lovers I would suggest the spicy tuna fried rice. If you’re into sashimi, definitely get the yellowtail. I made a reservation for 2pm on a Sunday I learned my lesson it’s super busy a lot of people. If you want more quiet less of a crowd then 5pm is nice. Wasn’t a lot of people. The outside area is nice, it’s covered, clean, and you see all the foot traffic in and around LA Live. I thing I don’t care for is the chairs. I hate the chairs very uncomfortable and children daycare like. So opt for a booth in the back or the little couches they have in the middle of the restaurant. Oh yea don’t forget the Katsuya Fresh great drink ask for an extra cucumber!

    If you’re a local and dining at Katsuya you should already know what to expect: an overly priced & consistently average meal. I guess that’s the cost of dining at a “brand name” restaurant next to the crypto center. But the service has always been great, and meals always consistent and never “bad”. Solid option if you live in neighborhood and can spare the expense when looking for a decent sushi option

    Hosts were rude. Service was incredibly slow. They added $15 to our bill to support their staff. I found it rude that the server didn't explain that to us. Adding an unknown fee to a bill and not doing us the courtesy of bringing it to our attention is shady. It felt they they were doing us a favor by us being there. I will not be going back there.

    We went with a group to celebrate my wife's birthday. When we arrived the menus were missing pages and the pages that were there had soy sauce stains all over them. The food took forever to come out and numerous dishes has to be remade and send back out because the prep was so poor. The Crispy Rice came out as just rice with fish on top as an example. We weren't in a rush thankfully so we were able to get our food. Thankfully the server was busting her but to try and make up for the kitchens issues. Overall it just seemed that they were not prepared for the dinner shift. Disappointing.
