Los Angeles Magazine once described us as follows —

“Toshi Sugiura, the owner chef of BAR HAYAMA in West Los Angeles, has created a space both quaint and sophisticated, with two intimate bars, a full sushi bar and a sake bar with an extensive selection of sakes (with a handy guide to their flavor profiles), and a menu highlighting kozara, or small plates such as ankimo pâté, grilled yellowtail collar, and beef tartar with quail egg…In good weather the fire pit in the garden with a communal table, is mesmerizing.”

The fire pit table outside is still our most popular signature spot, but since then we have added a semi-private roofed “deck” with a brand new fire pit for PRIVATE PARTIES! Our KOZARA menu has been changed as it evolved and expanded.  We continue trying to reinvent the concept of sushi with your unfailing support — we are so lucky to have wonderful customers like you!
