CHAYA Venice is located in the heart of the Venice beach community and imparts a neighborly feel to diners. A well-loved dining destination for 22 years, Executive Corporate Chef Shigefumi Tachibe creates innovative cuisine that blends European and Asian flavors. A lively and comfortable atmosphere, the spacious dining room features high ceilings that draw attention to the dramatic hand-painted Japanese-inspired mural overhead. Expansive windows allow diners to have a full view of Main Street. From a variety of Euro-Asian dishes to a full sushi bar and full service bar, there’s something for everyone at CHAYA Venice.

"Chaya Venice is a good foo-foo stand-by. The service was excellent and the food was good to pretty-good, but not spectacular. A bit pricey for what you get."

The cuisine at Sapphire Laguna is characterized by Chef/Owner Azmin Ghahreman's distinctive international style - its cornerstone is the freshest possible local ingredients. The evolving menu changes seasonally - based on what is freshly caught and available from small farms, nearby markets and artisan suppliers. <br /><br /> "When you dine at my restaurants you are traveling through the world's markets with your palate, and you don't even need a passport."<br /> <br /> ~Chef Azmin Ghahreman<br /><br />Sapphire Laguna reach-in wine vaults house an eclectic collection of wines – more than 900 bottles, emphasizing varietals from around the world. All vintages are stored in temperature-controlled units behind a rustic wall made from actual wine staves. In addition, approximately 25 wines by the glass are available. Menu samples and wine offerings can be found on Sapphire Laguna's website.
