I am not sure what happened to Iroha. It was the worst sushi experience I have had for the last 30 years. I could prepare better looking sushi and I have no skill. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!

Had a wonderful meal seated at the sushi bar. Amazing sushi and great service, highly recommended. The interior is like walking into a sushi bar in Tokyo mixed with an LA buzz.

I used to go to Cafe Sushi, their sister restaurant, until it closed. When I discovered Iroha, I was one happy guy. The place is funky and cool with a vibe that makes you feel you like you have found a hidden golden gem. Tucked away in the back of a driveway (for parking valet), this sushi bar offers the... More

The little house has the cutest ambiance and the seafood / sushi and appetizers are fresh. You can get flavored saki and good choices of beer too. I really enjoy eating here with friends or a good date spot.

Studio city has numerous sushi places and we would not rank it among the best. No complaints about the ambience- bright , cheery place with a good crowd. We are not sushi experts- but we found nearby Ahi Sushi more tasty. Good selection of sakes - we had a Kikusui glass and a Hot sake- both good. The food menu... More

Took a dear friend there to celebrate her Birthday. She had heard great things about it but had never been. She and I became close while pregnant with our 3rd because we met for sushi weekly. I had been before and always it fresh, very traditional and quite pricey. This time I found the fish low quality(strings in the tuna),... More

We had dinner on Monday evening. There were already some people but we easily got a table. The service was OK but the food was great. I had the beef Teryaki and both of my friends chose the sushis. A good place that I would recommend.

This is my favorite Sushi Place. First class sushi place, in some occasions you could see some actors and actress enjoying the place. I come here almost every week with my Fiance.

Food here is solid and portions large. Spicy tuna on crispy brown rice is a standout and highly recommended. Miso soup with 5 mushrooms also excellent. Just be are up when ordering because sashimi dishes are larger than at most places and you may end up over-ordering. Very cute patio sets this place apart.
