Casual but Tasty Japanese in West LA?

Can any recommend any casual Japanese restaurants (not strictly Sushi only) in the West LA area (Sawtelle Ave., Westwood, Century City, Santa Monica?) for a Sunday Lunch/Dinner? My sister is coming from out of state at the end of March; thanks very much!!

  1. musha, terried sake house, furaibo, sasaya, orris

    have fun!

    1. Kiriko has an excellent combination of sushi and cooked foods. It would be Sunday dinner only. It's not cheap, but it's pretty casual.

      I also second the recommendation for Orris.

      1. I second SaSaYa and Musha:

        Izakaya SaSaYa
        11613 Santa Monica Blvd
        Los Angeles, CA 90025
        (310) 477-4404

        Musha Restaurant
        424 Wilshire Blvd
        Santa Monica, CA 90401
        (310) 576-6330

          1. also Nanban-kan at 11330 Santa Monica Bl
