Kifune • Japanese Restaurant & Sushi Bar


Kifune is the spot where local Venecians go for Japanese food. Jay the owner and his friendly staff are always happy to see their regular customers and make some great food. The sushi bar is a lively place if you are in the mood for some sushi theatrics and smack talking. They have room for large parties, and also a separate bar space. While the interior may need a refreshing, the food is the best Japanese around for the price and we love the place!

  1. Kifune is just great. When my wife & I first moved to LA from Boston we lived at the Oakwood in MDR for a month & Kifune became the place we most felt at home. The staff is great & while the interior does look like it’s right out of the Starsky & Hutch era, if that keeps the prices down, I’m all for it.

  2. I highly recommend their bathroom stalls to sleep in. Tables are comfortable too, especially when your friends soak your hand in soy sauce
