Food was very good. Price was fair. The waiter never smiled. Never said thank you or welcome to our thank yous. When my daughter reminded the waiter "I ordered yakitori" he replied "I know," with attitude.

Izakaya Haru Ulala is Japanese-style tapas with a friendly atmosphere and super-cold Kirin on tap. Thanks to the nature of small dishes, the bill can start at $5 of food and run to about $40, at one's discretion. The menu generally includes Japanese comfort foods, including chawan-mushi, ochazuke, yakitori, okonomiyaki, and grilled vegetables (Including enoki, okra, and garlic, which go... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
