There are a bunch of sushi places in Manhattan Beach, and this location used to be quite good. This one ... well ... not one I would return to.

This place has an awesome lunch special! So much food for a great price! If you work around the area it is a great lunch spot to come to with your co-workers.

I prefer this to Katsu-Ya. The fish quality, in my opinion, is better and the atmosphere is less club and more Japanese tea house !

Izaka-Ya is a good spot for a quick sushi fix if you are around the beach and aren't too hungry. Our initial server, the only blonde waitress, was completely rude and b*tchy. She wasn't interested in listening to our order, and she took away our drink menu when we wanted a couple minutes to look, but wanted waters to start. After ordering drinks, they asked us if we could change tables. We had to move our drinks and our belongings, mid-sip, to take us to another table but offered to pay for our drinks instead. Our waitress in this section was WAY better. We ordered the Rakumori for 2 people which consisted of 4 pcs spicy tuna on crispy rice (must try), 4 small pcs of seared albacore, tuna sashimi with jalapeno, mystery sashimi wrapped in rice paper. Sounds like a lot but he portion sizes are tiny. Assorted sushi comes in orders of 2, also tiny. Izaka-ya means small plates, like tapas, to pair with drinks. But the amounts of food served here aren't even tapa sized, just plain tiny. Drinks run $10 for a cocktail which are decent. Would I come back? Probably not. Good one off experience to say I tried it though.

Always good food and service. Line up before 1130a Monday-Friday to be one of the 15 people for their early bird special ($9.80). I get the apple chicken lunch (with rice, soup and salad) for $8.50.

I love the sashimi here! Come early and they have 20 seats for the first 20 people for lunch specials for 9.90!

I love the original one in West Hollywood, and this one is pretty true to the same quality and flavor. Sitting at the sushi bar is always the best experience. Cocktails are also very good.
