High end sushi. Has 4 locations.
I came here with a friend who absolutely loves this restaurant. We came early enough that we waited maybe 5 minutes for a table for dinner, which was awesome since she told me there is usually a crazy wait. The waiter suggested we try the "Trust Me" after he explained the menu, and that's what we both got. The small sushi plates kept coming, and I was definitely full at the end. The fish tasted so fresh, and everything was delicious! I like how they told us to eat everything right away and not add any sauce if a plate already had it on it. Definitely my first experience with a menu like this, and I loved it!

The sushi remains very good in freshness and flavor. I usually get the sashimi or sushi combo, and upgrade with the $1 spicy ahi. The sushi here is so much better than the near by highly overrated Sugarfish. You can order what you want, and eat it however you like. Service is friendly, and parking is always plentiful. However...don't try to show off your Japanese speaking...as they are Korean :)

I'm conflicted. A great restaurant should have both delicious food and great service; sadly, Shibuya lacks one. I could rave on for hours about the food -- best sushi in Southern California, freshest fish around -- but other reviewers have already done it justice. Instead, I want to talk about my main grievance against Shibuya: the service. Based off my experience, Shibuya does not know how to treat their customers. To start off, Shibuya does not take reservations -- understandable -- but to secure a table, the process is horrendous. Essentially, they put a list on their door at 2:30 pm and Calabasasians flock far and wide to write their names down.Then at dinner time, in an almost lottery like manner, they begin calling off names, favoring the few who came earlier in the day. In my opinion this system takes the enjoyment out of dining, turning it into a mad competition. Furthermore, the service inside the restaurant is cold and near nonexistent. As there are always people waiting for a table, you are rushed, expected to eat within an hour. The servers take your order once, never to be seen again, and many of them didn't seem to take pride in their job. Multiple orders came out wrong, and we also received items that we did not order. Of course, what we received was amazing, so how we received it is where I took issue. To those of you willing to endure the wait and bad service, I give you a warning. The ambiance inside the restaurant, to some, may be bothersome as the space is small and old. Personally, I enjoy the hole-in-the-wall vibe but at times, constantly bumping into the table next me was testing.

We had dinner here and really, really enjoyed it. Make sure to have reservations since it is a popular spot for very good reason. The food is excellent, and the service even better.The place is very rustic, and was lucky to escape the recent fires that ravaged the area. They were literally less than 100 yards from where the road is closed.As our meal was winding down, a couple of musicians came in and performed a few tunes. That was a lot of fun as well.Prices are reasonable for the quality, and well worth it in my opinion. Would definitely return the next time we are in the area.

Yay team. There is not one ball dropped when you dine at Mr Chowâs From the second you are greeted with class, you are shown to your table and taken on a beautiful menu journey. Taste Quality Distinction. Wow. My husband and I love this place. A perfect treat.

We had dined at Kaishin in the past and the food was excellent. On this occasion, we ordered varieties of different foods for our party. The scallops had a weird taste. The scallops either tasted like old frozen stock, or the scallops were cuts of fish. Either way, the scallops were horrible. The rest of our meal was tasty. Service was great and the restaurant was clean.

It is so nice to eat out at a place where everyone on down the line at this sushi restaurant is friendly, laid back and unpretentious. I found the dynamite roll with scallops, mushrooms and cheese was absolutely Sensational.It was great drinking saki with hot green tea. I found the grilled rib eye was Sensational.This place is definitely the "X" on the Treasure Map.What a cool place with cool staff!

This place serves high quality sushi in a strip mall about mile up north from nobu. We had 5 plates of sushi, all excellent quality, a bottle of sparkling water and a quality 11oz sake for 169 dollars. Forgot to mention 4 pieces of shrimp tempura at 9 dollars. You donât get the nobu view, actually quite the opposite but the fish is high quality and plentiful.

Dining in, or getting Take Out from, Cholada, consistently serves up great casual Thai Food. Donât let the Malibu beach front bungalow location fool you, Cholada is the Go To for great Thai. Staff is friendly, helpful and is all Thai, adding to the authenticity. Delicious & a nice varied menu selection! Youâll enjoy! Seywadee Ka!

If you want an exceptional dining experience, go to Nobu. It's trendy and popular for a reason. The food is incredible. The service is perfection. The attention to detail is over the top. The location is absolutely gorgeous. You cannot have a bad meal here. We ordered a bunch of items and let the server make several recommendations as to what we ordered and we LOVED all but one thing that came out! The one thing that came out was still good (miso cod, I think??) --it just wasn't what we were expecting in our minds when we ordered it. The fish is so fresh, the flavors are so crisp and delicate. Being from Kentucky visiting Malibu, my only disappointment was not spotting a celebrity while we were eating... although, I am sure they were there... in a back room or something. :) Definitely go here for a special meal. Reservations recommended!
