LAReview

There is no shortage of fun group-dinner spots in Koreatown, but Tokyo Hamburg is one of our favorites - and certainly the most unique. This rowdy Japanese restaurant feels like a party from the moment you walk in - pop music blasting over the speakers, beer and sake being chugged at a Friday night pace (even if it’s Tuesday), and the smell of burger patties sizzling on individual stone grills. It’s basically a DIY Smashburger situation, and though it seems a bit gimmicky, the meat itself is fantastic and exactly what you want to be putting into your body before a long night of drinking.
