Wabi Sabi on Abbott Kinney?

Any thoughts? Is it better to stick with the sushi or cooked food? Or just go somewhere else?

  1. I've only been to the one in Chino, but I would stick with teppan yaki. The sushi is very ordinary.

    1. The sushi is pretty good, for those more fashionable sushi places. I have not had the cooked food. The whole menu is relatively pricey, but you're paying for fashion as much as food.

      1. If I were you, I would go somewhere else for Japanese. Found Wabi Sabi to be overpriced for what you're getting. Wasn't crazy about the waitstaff either. A bit pushy and impatient.

        Instead check out Azami Sushi on Melrose for great sushi, tasting menu, etc.

        1. Yeah I'm not a big fan of Wabi Sabi, it's really overpriced for what you are getting.

          1. Agreed! Wabi Sabi is not about food. I am not sure what it IS about -- it was quite good when it first opened, however.
