Said to be the inspiration for the Japanese restaurant scene in Quentin Tarintino's Kill Bill Voume 1, Gonpachi is a warehouse-sized, multi-level traditional restaurant which attracts both tourists and celebrity diners such as Johnny Depp, Lady Gaga, and President Bush. The atmosphere is loud and lively, with many after-work drinkers, large groups, and parties. The menu includes everything from sushi to tempura to soba noodles, even grilled fish. There's nothing particularly challenging about the food, which makes it a safe choice for those unfamiliar with Japanese food.
