GION Beverly Hills
Sushi is not the focus at GION Beverly Hills, we offer a different perspective of Japanese food and experiences outside of typical Japanese dining.
We do not have a specific dining area. All areas serve dishes that Japanese enjoy on a daily basis or otherwise a style of home cooking.
Our Chef is Yusuke Irie and supplies GION Beverly Hills with special fish that no other restaurant has access to.
Speakeasy style entrance in the back of the building is the entrance.
Guests will be escorted to the secret entrance of GION Beverly Hills, reminiscent of the alleyways in Gion used by Geishas to avoid the public as they are not allowed to be photographed. Geisha are rare to see, which is why it is a mysterious or elusive entrance.
There is valet parking.
