Katsuya - Downtown, Los Angeles

There are "Katsuya" and "Katsu-ya" restaurants. If you want better food, better service, original menu, then go to "Katsu-ya".

The service was very slow and it wasn't that crowded. I was looking at the menu around 6:30pm, then placed orders. Our first appetizer and drinks were served at 7:30pm. It usually takes 2 hours from start to finish at the steakhouse, but 3 hours at not so busy restaurant? Are you kidding me???
For the food, nothing outstanding.

A crunchy twist to albacore sashimi

Creamy rock shrimp $16

8:30pm, I got my second drink. I wanted to order earlier, but couldn't get our waiter. My drink was very refreshing, just like that name.

Sea urchin $9, Salmon egg $6, Egg $5
8:50pm, we got our sushi. sushi was fine.

Sweet shrimp $8.50

9:25pm, I got my dessert. They don't have dessert menu, just ask to your waiter.

French press coffee
I asked if they have cappuccino, and they said no, they have french press coffee so that's why I got this.
