Kushiyu Restaurant Review

: This sprawling Japanese restaurant features a massive U-shaped sushi bar and a rare kushiyaki grill imported from Japan. (There are only a few in Los Angeles.) Kushiyu is a paradise for grazing. Order skewers of almost anything imaginable: asparagus, mushrooms, sea bass, swordfish, chicken with green onion, chicken meatballs, smelt and quail egg. There are also a number of deep-fried Japanese snacks, highlighted by yukari age --- a blend of scallop, chicken and shiitake mushrooms wrapped in a shiso leaf. Complement your meal with a selection from the extensive menu of select sak├ęs.

I have eaten here a few times with my wife and some friends. The food is not bad, however the service is rude, slow, and terrible. The prices are not bad, however when you receive the check there are ridiculous charges on it. For some reason every time I receive the bill it does not add up, and this is not the first time. I asked to speak to the person in charge to have him explain the reason for this and he straight laughed in our face. He was rude, had a terrible demeanor and I would not recommend this place to anyone. I will never eat here again. Always make sure to check your bill and make sure that you are not being over charged the way that we have. This place likes to add charges thinking that no one will notice or pay attention, and when you inquire about them, you get laughed at in your face by a rude owner/ manager. WORST SERVICE EVER!!!!!!! :evil:
