CHAYA Venice is located in the heart of the Venice beach community and imparts a neighborly feel to diners. A well-loved dining destination for 22 years, Executive Corporate Chef Shigefumi Tachibe creates innovative cuisine that blends European and Asian flavors. A lively and comfortable atmosphere, the spacious dining room features high ceilings that draw attention to the dramatic hand-painted Japanese-inspired mural overhead. Expansive windows allow diners to have a full view of Main Street. From a variety of Euro-Asian dishes to a full sushi bar and full service bar, there's something for everyone at CHAYA Venice.
it could be a romantic place to dine but the noise level is so high that it's difficult to hear each other without yelling or leaning closer - which might induce romantic tendencies...i had the special of the day, australian sea bass with a sweet, ginger-soy glaze with tempura veggies. the fish was wonderful! my dessert wasn't as impressive (warm pistachio chocolate-chip cookies) but my husband ordered the chocolate croissant bread pudding which was meltingly dreamy. service was friendly and helpful and the people-watching was excellent.
You have to go for Sushi happy hour, the spicy tuna tartare is an unmatched value at $3. The wait staff is friendly and informative, the food is fresh and innovative. Lately I haven't been wowed by the main courses but the sushi/appetizer (Snapper carpaccio) and dessert (Banana banana banana) can not be beat. Hurry there.
Great restaurant, but consider going for appetizers and/or desert since both were better than the entr�es. Main course was the salmon and had a bite of the overly spicy Korean style tenderloin; both were good, neither was earth shattering. That said the ahi tuna tartar was the best I�ve ever had with relish-like avocado chunks scattered throughout. The lobster enchiladas with cilantro cream sauce were also fabulous as was the sushi (ate the tuna if I recall). Quickly devoured the chocolate chip pistachio cookies which were kinda hard around the edges yet soft in the middle. Oh, and the ambiance was killer as was the service. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing.
and the best raspberry martini's! The only down side to happy hour is that you have to get there early or you'll be left standing waiting for a table. It's always packed so the people watching is a lot of fun.
I've been to Chaya Venice a number of times. It's got great ambience and great service. Food is electic as well diverse. There is something for everyone. The scene is trendy and hot. I think it's a great place for a 1st date and a night out on the town.
Great place to bing guests from out of town. Close to the beach, best shushi in venice, great atmoshpere, and the occasional celeb. Chaya inbented California Fusion so you will find everything from Mahi Mahi to Mustard Chicken pom Fritte.
