Has anyone else been to Yakitori-Ya in the Olympic Collection (Olympic and Sawtelle) recently? The prices have undergone a HUGE increase. Previously the 5-stick course was $12.50, now $17-. There is no more 10-stick course for $22.50. It's now a 9-stick course for $27-. The large soboro rice went from $7- to $12-. Each Yakitori stick went from $2- per stick to $2.50/stick.
Yakitori-Ya has the best, most authentic yakitori on the Sawtelle strip, but the price hike now makes the place a once per month place rather than a weekly place to eat.
We've been eating there regularly, sometimes up to once per week, for the last three years. We love the place, but now we feel betrayed and saddened by the huge price hike when we ate there on Monday 11/8/4. The excellent food quality and the hair-brained service remained the same post price hike.
