I have dined at many japanese restaurants as I travel however this one offered dishes I have never been offered before. They are obviously very traditional Japanese dishes as my waiter suggested that I may not like the dishes I chose as they often get left on the table by western diners. The pickles octopus legs & raw potato were... More

Setiap kali kami ke LA, furaibo adalah restaurant Yg wajib dikunjungi. Tebasaki chicken is superb! Bisa dipilih tingkat spicy nya: mild, medium, or extra spicy. Menu lainnya pun extraordinary: Ika karaege yang crispy bgt, juicy Japanese steak, and delicious mouth watering Korean BBQ. The Korean BBQ is better than the one in Korean restaurant itself

Then you... More

I visited this restaurant with a local friend who chose it and totally understood why he likes it so much. Great food, service and prices. I would definitely go back.

The food is actually good, and cheap. Great for jap style tapas, wings are excellent, other food are OK. Problem is I find the food is not special enough to go back.

If you are looking for a great Japanese place that serves small, plates this is the best you'll get in the west! (West LA) haha really great dishes overall, but be ready for a wait! The wait here is not about the hype, its all about the food.

Had dinner there the other evening. I was waiting for my friend, and even though the restaurant was mostly empty, the hostess wouldn't seat me until he got there. I understand big parties, but come on. Pretentious and lame. Also the chairs are the most uncomfortable things I have ever sat on in my life. No bueno. They could use... More
