This Meetup Group is for Sushi & Asian Food Lovers
in the greater Los Angeles area.
This is a FUN Foodie and dining group! Many of our members have become fast friends with each other while sharing great food, drink and time together! We love to explore all the various cuisines including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indian, Thai, Nepalese, Pakistani and the various regional dishes of the Far East.
After you've attended one of our events, feel free to post photos in our photo gallery and please post a restaurant review on our Message Forum.
We've searched for the the best dim sum, the best Peking Duck, the best dumplings, the best sushi bar, the best ramen, best Korean BBQ and we continue our quest for the best Asian and sushi restaurants in Los Angeles.
We enjoy exploring new restaurants and foods so many restaurants will be top rated quality restaurants or maybe that local hole in the wall or unique one of a kind dining adventure. Join us as we explore the nooks and crannys of the Los Angeles Food Scene.
Become a Supporting Member
At this time, we do not charge an meetup event fee like a majority of the other Meetup groups. If you've attended a few of our events, we would really appreciate it if you could help support this great group and make a $10 suggested annual donation and become a Supporting Member as there are lots of costs associated with running a large group of this size. All Event Hosts, Organizers and Supporting Members will be on an Advance Notice List getting notified one day before the general membership. Also Supporting Members will also be given priority on the Waiting Lists if there is one (and there usually is one!). Thank you for your support.
Please check our our sister foodie group... The L.A. Foodies+ group in which the group will Meetup and dine out at an even wider variety of American and ethnic foods as well as some of the events may have a more "adventurous" flair.

How to RSVP
1] Usually the choice is Yes or No. Maybe's tend to be No preventing people who really want to attend from getting a seat at the table. This is why we usually avoid allowing Maybe excepting for large or unlimited events where the number seats are not restricted.
2] If you RSVP Yes, we expect you to show up. Usually our events fill up and several people would like to attend if you cannot, so as soon as you find out that you cannot attend, please be sure to UN-RSVP so that another member can get a seat at the table.
3] Waiting List - Right now, on the Meetup.com site, there is no provision for a waiting list. So if you'd like to attend an event that is full, RSVP NO and comment that you'd like to attend and when a seat opens (which usually happens) you can be added to the event.
4] Guests - This depends on the Event Host, some allow guests, others do not. I personally usually allow only one guest or no guests because if the member is a no show, so are the guests and if there are a lot of guests, that can really mess up the event. So if you want to bring a bunch of friends or family, please have them join our group. This way, they will receive the email reminders, location info and meeting contact info and there will be less no shows.
The whole object of this group is to have fun, share some great food, dining and cooking experiences with others who share our love for good food and to meet some new friends.
