Everything is amazing, but definitely try the Tomato Tofu. It's incredibly good and very unique. Omakase or Sushi Special is a great deal for the money. Vegetable and cooked dishes are very good.
The sushi is different every day, but the omakase will invariably include a species or two new to you.
Extremely limited vegan/vegetarian options
The epitome of LA dining: an exquisite sushi restaurant housed in a giant stucco chili bowl situated a few car lengths from a freeway overpass. Put yourself in the sushi chef?s hands.
I have never dined in the countryside of Japan, but Shunji is what I would expect to find if I did. It was not unrefined, quite the opposite in fact -- it was understated elegance! A must when in LA..
We got the Japanese Style Tasting for $100 per person and it includes this very special dessert! 4 fruits! Lol! Go to Asanebo and get your money's worth!
French and Californian cuisines inflect chef Shunji Nakao's contemporary Japanese cooking. For the full experience, order the omakase.
An oasis of calm and lights out Japanese cuisine
Shunji will open for lunch, Mon-Fri, from noon to 2 PM, starting Tuesday, October 1, 2013. They will also be open for dinner on Sundays starting in October.
Not just a sushi bar. You expect expensive wild sea bream to be treated reverently at a sushi bar. You do not expect the same care to be taken with a carrot.
