Inaka Natural Foods RestaurantAdd to mybook
A rare jewel in the rough. My boyfriend is a vegan and I love fish - this is a place that meets both our needs. Healthy yet delicious food for the vegetarian, I recommend this place for those who like organic food and Japanese food. If you eat fish, you'll love the chilean bass with lotus roots, gobo, miso soup, and bean spouts. My boyfriend orders the yakisoba (Japanese noodles) everytime. This place is so exotic an... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
We are SO LUCKY to have Inaka in a trendoid place like LA where few longtimers survive. The atmosphere is calm and serene. It's not a showy place, you can go there hiding from the world. But the food is the true star. I'm amazed why it's not packed every night. Pure flavors, exquisite Japanese combinations brimming with health. Kombu, wakame, hijiki, natto, superb miso...aaah....Plenty of refills of genmai-cha. Tofu ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
This is the the kind of healthy food that tastes great and makes you feel even better. It's the kind of place I like to go to after a great workout. The clean & minimalist interior, excellent staff, & even better food make Inaka one of my top favorites!Like this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I was there last week for the first time, ready for possible disappointments after reading the reviews here...But there were none. I found the food to be extremely good and ""clean"". If you are addicted to screeching tastes this is not your place, but if you have a detoxified palate, this is your temple.
The service was great. 2 waitresses were always vigilant and ready to answer questions with a big smile. The f... view more
The portions are not big but the food here is fresh, macrobiotic and delicious.
Don't expect great ambience or service though - it's very business-like. Once you receive your food, you don't see a waitress again 'til dessert time. Anything you want in between, you'll have to leave your seat to request.
I used to like the old incarnation of this restaurant. It was kind of hippy-dippy but the waiters were friendly ... view more
The food is superb! Everything tastes wonderful and is so increadibly healthy. Even with a full meal and a delicious dessert (I highly recomend the chocolate mousse) you feel totally satisfied and good about yourself and your health. Everyone is very friendly and eager to serve. The toughest part is deciding what dish to get, they are all so tempting! The servings are pretty large. Personally, I always tak... view more
when you first walk in, you know that this restaurant is like no other in LA. there are many other natural food restaurants, but none have been around as long as this one, or as true to the ideal of ""you are what you eat"" as Augie, one of the departed chefs used to say. It's got it's quirks, but that just makes it more charming and real. My favorite (and always will be) restaurant in LA.Like this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
