This was our 3rd visit to Shojin and I want to keep coming back. The service is always friendly and attentive. The food is beautifully presented and tastes even better than it looks. This last visit was to celebrate my son's birthday. He is 11 and loves the sushi and gluten free pasta. My favorite dish is the crispy rice... More

It took us going up and down Washington Blvd two times before we found the restaurant (no sign!!!). The interior lacks charm but the service is impeccable. We had the "tuna" on crispy rice which was a little dry as there was too much crispy rice and not enough of the topping. Shojin crab cake tartar was delicious as were... More

Everything at this Shojin location is EXCELLENT! The price point, the service (is pristine), the ambiance, not to mention the FOOD! Vegan AND GLUTEN FREE!! I actually crave their vegan sushi more than I have ever craved real fish sushi. A must eat experience, authentic, creative, sustainable, healthy, and affordable! Shojin 24/7!

What a lovely hidden gem. I'm not even vegan and found the food delicious. The service was fantastic as well. It was our daughter's birthday and they did something really nice for her. I won't spoil the surprise for anyone who might go there for their birthday. At the end of our meal we all were served dandelion tea. It... More

A credit to vegan food. You can see the care and attention to detail in every single ingredient. Delicious. Smart. Simple. If I actually lived in LA I'd eat here as often as I could.

Took my daughter on a Thursday eve and ordered the Tasting Menu for two which given the quality and creativity of the dishes, attentive (almost doting) service and lush serene ambiance a real deal at $60 for two ! Limited wine list but the only Merlot at $35 a solid choice. We ended by sharing the faux Creme Brulee ($10)... More

I had dinner at Shojin for the first time tonight. Despite this being a holiday weekend, we were seated immediately without a reservation. The restaurant is small and intimate with low level lighting. The staff is very friendly and incredibly polite. I started with an appetizer - crispy shiso gyoza, which are fried shiso potstickers filled with vegetables served with... More

I was first skeptical about sushi without fish or seafood... OMG! I am not Vegan and went there with a Vegan friend. Totally convinced that you can enjoy very high quality cuisine being a vegan. From the appetizers to the rolls, everything was succulent! try the shiitake Shingyo, the Dynamite Roll or the Garlic Eggplant Roll. Everything is tasty with... More
