what an absolute treat.....from the moment we walked in, we were welcome......from seating to the thorough explanation of the menu from kenny to tips on ordering.....everything we ordered was awesome....miso eggplant, cucumbers, chicken thighs and pretty much everything on the 2nd sampling menu....and the beef soup is astounding.....we sampled as much as we could and will now look forward to return visits to enjoy everything we had - and more....

Great and very unique dining experience. Really fun to cook on the grate. Went here with my son before a comedy show down the street. They accommodated us ahead of our reservation time. Servers were very friendly and offered good advice. Prime Rib Eye was excellent. Highly recommend.

Overall great experience and awesome waiters and staff. Everyone super friendly and knowledgeable about the dining experience. I would have given 5 stars but the table wasn’t ready even though we had a reservation. Also there really isn’t a bar area so you kind of have to hang out in the front and there were several couples waiting as well. There is a cool bar right next door so it worked out. Again, the food is incredible and I will definitely add this to my rotation.
It was an anniversary dinner and they gave us an additional desert at no charge with a candle in it. Lastly, they have a few Japanese beers that are unique if that’s your thing.

Manpuku is my favorite new addition to the 3rd street restaurants in the past few years. I have loved the location on Sawtelle for a very long time, and the only thing that keeps me from eating there is the distance & the business of the Sawtelle area. So getting a Manpuku in our neighborhood is great. And the food is fantastic. I will continue to eat here as often as possible.

Like Korean bbq but better as the Japanese version called yakiniku offers high quality meats, seafood, vegetables and great Asian salads. Meats cone either marinated or sslted(shio) which is recommended. It’s also slot of fun cooking your own and eating at your own pace.

Excellent service. They have Kobe and wagyu both excellent but obviously pricey. Kobe is only worth it if you get it in the tasting menu otherwise the Wagyu is the way to go for the “value splurge”. Tasting menu is good if you want to try the variety of cuts but really has a lot of extra items that fill you up instead. To be honest though with the quality of meat being high there’s no need to explore the variety of cuts since all cuts taste the same at that point. Go with the cheapest cut of wagyu and fill up on that. Tasting menus are OK if you can’t decide otherwise not that great of a deal. Seafood is good but nothing special very generic. The short rib dipped in raw egg yolk is to die for. Stay away from the miso marinated as it masks the flavor of the meat and is way too strong. Tongue is excellent and will change your mind if you’re opposed to tongue. Ice cream dessert was not worth it and just a mash up of too many flavors.
