I will give Manpuku (Sawtelle) 5/5
But will give Manpuku (WH) 3.5/5
Wouldn't have went if I knew it was a bit different

Fantastic place. Their sukiyaki beef with rice balls are a must try. We ended up ordering two rounds of them. The value of money was great given the quality of their meat. The servers are always happy to talk to us about the best way to cook each type of meat. We really enjoyed our time there.

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.

Stellar dining. Really enjoyed the different cuts of beef in an inviting atmosphere. The only odd point was the A5 wagyu that was not as flavorful as we expected. Great place.

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.
