Just ROLLING along to @izakayatora !

Located in the heart of Weho, this hidden gem definitely is a nice, vibey spot to take a date or grab a bite before going out for the night. This spot features premium, fresh cuts of sashimi that definitely are among some of the freshest that I've had in LA and definitely comparable to the quality you get in Japan. If you're not a fan of raw fish, they also have incredibly well-prepared and authentic Japanese hot plates such as their Uni udon, miso eggplant tempura and chicken karaage, which I would definitely return for.

5 stars for delicious food, super fresh sushi and amazing service!

We were looking for an authentic Japanese izakaya that also served sushi in the WeHo area and stumbled upon this hidden gem. It's a cozy store with 4-6 tables as well as bar seating. We were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable price, tasty sushi and super friendly service. We were really hungry when we arrived and ordered 2 rounds of sushi. They even prepared the sweet shrimp the traditional way by deep frying the head. The robotayaki / yakitori were both excellent. Just when we thought we were done the waitress brought us a special smoked sashimi dish that was on the house! Thank you so much Sushi Tora for not only the delicious food but also ending our dining experience with a nice surprise! We will definitely be back again! Great place, amazing location and delicious food.

This small neighborhood gem was perfect for lunch.

I made 12:00 p.m. Sunday OpenTable lunch reservations for 2. To note: leave extra time to find parking on the street, very busy. When we arrived we were greeted and seated. The restaurant is small but bright and nicely decorated. Service was excellent very friendly and attentive. The reason why I chose this restaurant is for the sushi and the KushiYaki. My friend and I ordered beers while deciding on what to order. We chose the Pork Belly, Beef, Tiger Shrimp, Chicken liver and Gizzard Kushiyaki. In addition the Scallop Uni Carpaccio, Rock Shrimp Spicy Tuna Maki and a Spicy Tuna Roll along with Masago, Eel and Salmon Sushi. Everything came out fresh and delicious. All the KushiYaki choices were cooked perfectly. The Scallop Uni Carpaccio stole the show. Atmosphere: small, bright, nice decor. Service: excellent. Food: excellent.

Would come back again!

Went there for a quick lunch. Ordered $22 bento box. Decent quantity with quality food. 🍱 friendly and professional service. The environment was good too- not a lot of people. Not the cheapest quick lunch in this neighborhood but worth the money as the food was diverse and delicious. Would come back again!

Amazing staff!

Get one of the bowls. The fried chicken is GOOOOD. We balled out a little too hard but everything was top notch. Service tho, is the shining star. Yok was our server, she was the best. Apparently this a great first date spot since everyone was on a first date except us 😂

Everything was super delicious and the vibes were great!

For appetizers get the spicy tuna crispy rice, popcorn shrimp, and lots of the skewers. The wagyu and toro nigiri was unreal and melted in my mouth. My favorite thing we ordered was by far the premium chirashi bowl. Every piece of sashimi was incredible. Can’t wait to come back here and try more things!! Will add that we had a reservation and ended up being seated an hour after our reservation time when we came 15 minutes early. Was super frustrating but the chef gave us complimentary salmon sashimi to express their apologies.
