We tried some take away sushi for a diner at home, it was so good that we decided to come back the next day. Second dîner in the restaurant was just amazing, good and really creative. To me the best place in Venice.

Pleasant atmosphere & Professional wait-staff, The Calamari appetizer was perfect with a light, crispy, batter. The seafood platter appetizer for the table was tasty. My hangar-steak was savory and prepared as requested. Both locations, Venice Beach & Downtown, are enjoyable and worth the trip. .

My wife and I had dinner at Chaya Venice. We enjoy Japanese food, and know that it is more than just about sushi platters and sashimi boats. Chaya Venice definitely met our expectations. The (cold) sake our server recommended was actually good. For two persons,...More

Excellent Sushi upon chef's recommendation, wonderful white wine and service; all in a nice setting with enough quietness to have conversation.

Came with a large group in a semi private room for a special occasion. Pre-selected menu and all dishes well above average. Sea bass very well prepared; wagu beef rice bowl somewhat disappointing. Special sushi and salad appetizers very nice. Deserts also tasty.

A bit a strange kind of restaurant, it looks more japanese on the outside but the menu is actually fusion on many cuisines. I had lobster, my colleague steak, and they were both of good level. Price are medium/medium high, around 30$ per main dish....More

All I can say is average. Very average. Service was good and they did adjust the bill, but the food was bland. We expected a lot more. Food was not very Asian...

Have gone here twice, once with a very large group of diners for a business meal and another time with two girlfriends. The food (seafood is usually what we order) was fresh and interesting. The people-watching is fantastic and the atmosphere very lively!

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it

The Chaya restaurant family originated when Hikage Chaya opened in Hayama, Japan. From this initial tea house, that opened 390 years ago, the Tsunoda family has expanded into French bistros and pastry shops throughout Japan and introduced the brand to the U.S. in 1984 with the opening of Chaya Brasserie in Beverly Hills. Since then, Chaya has opened locations in Venice, San Francisco, Downtown Los Angeles, and LAX. The cuisine at each restaurants can best be described as modern Japanese though each restaurant has a distinct personality reflecting their different locations. Corporate Executive Chef, Shigefume Tachibe is best known for pioneering modern Japanese cuisine and his contributions to the Asian-Fusion movement. His chef coat and knife are in permanent display in the Smithsonian. The most important tenet of Chaya's philosophy is high-level omotenashi (hospitality), bringing the Japanese teahouse tradition of warm and personal service to each guest.
