THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Yabu Restaurant Review

: Originally an offshoot of a noodle shop on Pico, this fun and friendly spot is housed in a tepee-like structure with lots of dark wood, a sushi bar and a fanciful bamboo patio. Yabu is one of L.A.'s most versatile Japanese restaurants. Not only does it make a great pit stop for an inexpensive lunch of handcrafted udon or soba noodles served with a myriad of toppings (even gold leaf), but Yabu also offers a wide choice of dinner options. In addition to the near-endless selection of noodles, you'll find some highly respectable sashimi, sushi and more esoteric dishes. Halibut, yellowtail or seared toro carpaccio can be mixed-and-matched with tempura, kushiyaki (roasted skewers), salads or Japanese pub-style cuisine like chicken karaage (fried chicken) or steamed dumplings. You can even go for a pricy omakase (chef's choice) feast. An extensive saké selection is available.
