About Rain Pantana, Sushi Chef


Rain Pantana is a well known sushi chef in Venice Beach and one of the best in California. Originally from Thailand, Rain worked his way up to management at Jack in the Box, before fulfilling his strong desire to be a sushi chef. Rain pursued his dream after reaching success in a tough corporate environment, giving him the warm and friendly attitude to create wonderful fish meals with outstanding artistry. He is now living his dream with his popular sushi bar in Venice Beach. His bar is open all week and he sells out every time because his sushi is so attractive, rich and tasty.

He began with tempura, vegetable and different kinds of Westernized sushi before preparing dishes with raw fish. Many travelers troop in from other states to come and taste Wabi Venice sushi. Rain ensures that he uses only fresh produce for his sushi, he oversees the vegetable selections, buys fresh produce from the market and goes to the sea to fish as a hobby.
