Yamashiro was established back in 1914, and has since remained a prominent historic Hollywood landmark perched 250 ft. above the hills of Hollywood for more than 100 years. The word “Yamashiro” translates to "mountain palace," or “mountain castle” in Japanese.

In fact, this restaurant was designed to be a replica of a palace located in the “Yamashiro” province mountains near Kyoto, Japan.

This palace for the Hollywood elite served as an exclusive spot for golden age celebrities to meet up and mingle. Today, it has become one of the most beautiful restaurants in Greater Los Angeles, with some of the best views of downtown LA and beyond.

Yamashiro offers classic culinary fare including generous selections of fresh sushi and Cal-Asian fare. There’s crispy rice, yakitori, and a collection of signature Yamashiro cocktails that are just as incredible as the restaurant's scenery of lush garden greenery and an authentic koi pond.

Ample outdoor seating on the deck accommodates guests, while also offering a safe distance between tables. Diners can experience LA views from the deck, or eat in the open-air courtyard to enjoy the ambiance of the thriving gardens and flowing waterfalls.
