Chiba Restaurant

11713 Saticoy St, North Hollywood, CA , 91605



Don’t let the unassuming North Hollywood strip mall location fool you—this Japanese joint has been serving some of the best sushi in LA for three decades. Chef and owner Shig Chiba took over from his father and now doles out the freshest sashimi, nigiri, and crowd-pleasing rolls. More complex creations include the Power Hand Roll—uni heaped with multicolored roes and caviars topped off with a quivering quail egg.
