NEW OPEN in Little Tokyo
[TENSHO]

Right in the heart of Little Tokyo, “Kagaya” has established itself a top tier shabu shabu restaurant. Now, the torches have been handed to a new head chef and owner, the next generation to carry the torches of tradition and exquisite flavor, with the new name of TENSHO.

Trained in traditional Japanese cookery, this 23 year veteran chef is on his way to introducing a new wave of Japanese delicacies to the States. As close as you can get to Japan itself, this chef brings his revisioned menu, with patron favorites, and extensive sake list. The desert and a la carte menu is designed by their French trained chef. 

The wagyu beef is of A5 rank.  The seafood, carefully selected to be of highest quality. Food that is not only delicious but also good for the health.

    We had such an amazing experience here. Every course was delicious and they were so kind to show us how to enjoy each one with detailed explanations. We were the last ones in the restaurant and they were so patient and encouraged us to fully enjoy each course with no rush. Everything from the service to the food was amazing. Will definitely return.
