    The restaurant was very loud almost too loud. I had trouble hearing my date. The fried chicken was very good everything else (pork entree and ramen) was good but not spectacular. Overall it was very expensive. A mediocre looking steak was $62. Def not a steak house quality steak. I enjoyed myself but won’t trip over myself to go back.

    Tasty and great suggestions from the waiter. However I felt it was overpriced and you can find similar Asian eats at a local mom/pops shop in Gardena.

    Made a reservation for 6pm on a Saturday night, arrived on time and was immediately seated. Waitress brought water soon after and gave us recommendations from the menu. We ordered two appetizers, one main, one rice dish, two non-alcoholic drinks, 1 desert and two coffee. They also gave us a mochi desert for my friend’s birthday. Bill came to $135. Restaurant was packed by 7pm and it was very loud with the background music and people talking. A little hard to hear my friend clearly at times and kinda had to shout. Overall a very good dining experience. Good good & good ambiance. Will definitely return.

    Came back because our first experience was incredible and we have been raving about it since. We don’t live near by so it’s a treat for us to plan our Sunday to enjoy. The home made tofu which melted in your mouth with dashi full of umami. This time, beyond bland and disappointing. The Karage wasn’t crispy and some undercooked thigh pieces. The snapper (at $58!!), skin soggy, rubbery and unappealing to be simply pulled aside like wastage. The mussel pieces, chalky and fishy not plump and juicy. I hope if the chef is having a day off or off day, the kitchen staff can replicate just as well moving forward.

    Overall very nice ambience although music could be turned down a bit. Service is prompt and attentive. Food is good, heavy on salt, pricey. Good for special occasions but prob would run out of choices for everyday dining, as menu is limited. Extensive alcohol menu.

    We dined for the first time at Ryla last night. This was an excellent dining experience in many ways. Although the indoor tables were rather close together, the energy and atmosphere were comfortable. Our server was Stephanie who was warm, congenial, knowledgable and attentive throughout our dinner. They have a full bar, so we ordered a standard scotch and soda and an Old Fashion. The pour on my Old Fashion was generous, and it was delicious. We started with a tasty Caesar which had an interestingly creative peanut butter and sesame dressing to go along with the nice crisp croutons and white anchovies. My wife and I shared two main courses. Their roast chicken with umeboshi plum sauce was juicy and flavorful. The highlight was Chef’s creation of ox tongue curry which was splendid. I am a real curry lover, and the subtle flavors blended into a delicious dish. The ox tongue was cooked perfectly with tender pieces ~ it was a pure delight. Accompanying it were pickled strawberries which complemented the already excellent balance of favors and textures. Having just returned from an exhausting trip, we ordered the interesting matcha tiramisu to go (which was delightful). When Stephanie found out were celebrating our Anniversary, they brought out complimentary champagne. Our experience was a delight at Ryla, and we will heartily recommend this to our friends, and look forward to our next visit!

    Amazing waiter! His Name is “James” Irish guy We ordered a 3 course meal including wines and a specialty after dinner drink. Loved the wine selection, but didn’t see much California wine? The flavors in my Snapper dish were “Divine !“ I would love to see a little more selection in fish, but was quite happy with my experience overall. The ambiance is refreshingly elegant for the beach area. Yes, the price tag for our dinner was a bit shocking … haven’t done that in awhile. Hope your business stays in Hermosa, I like the classy presentation and Buzz”❤️🔥👍 I’m now a local fan! I’ll be back! Gina Shakti

    Five stars for the food. Standouts were the Hokkaido milk bread, white sesame Caesar salad, hot chicken karaage, NZ Tai snapper, and matcha tiramisu. Favorite cocktail was the Mind Your Peas & Qs. Service was friendly but a little off, with the appetizer courses arriving before our cocktails. The tables were packed tightly, and the music was a bit on the loud side. I'd go back for the food but might try to avoid weekend nights.

    This was the 3rd or 4th time I've been, and once again, everything was fantastic! Managers came to say hi and check on us, servers great, bartender great. Food is some of the best in the South Bay. Chicken Karaage was delish, the Caesar salad especially good with anchovies too! Tai Snapper outstanding. Milk Bread, go ahead enjoy the carbs cuz it's GREAT! Oyster way better than most, Pork Tonkatsu was terrific. We had good cocktails and wine along the way (a party of 5), and Matcha Tiramisu and Meiji Soy Milk pudding might sound odd, but don't be scared, it was terrific I guess you would call this a 5 star review, it was really terrific once again!

    Unique and interesting dishes of mixed Asian varieties. Service was engaging and uniformly excellent. Highly recommend the Hokkaido Milk bread, snapper in a coconut milk broth, pork belly with ramen and the ox tongue rice. Mixed drinks were similarly unique and interesting including one with tequila and pea juice; and another one with spicy mezcal and peppers.
