Tokyo Delve's Sushi Bar Restaurant Review

: L.A. is a big enough city to allow room for the offbeat. The irresistible peculiarities of Tokyo Delve's, therefore, are hardly even questioned. Located in the NoHo Arts District, Yuichi Tani’s 1986 Tokyo import serves decent sushi in a setting that’s the polar opposite of a serene Japanese rock garden. But rock it does. Sushi chefs, dressed in fluorescent green and pink, dance and sing to deafening beats. After making your way past a façade befitting an old biker bar, you'll find a balloon-filled interior with a backlit replica of the Hollywood sign. Some diners actively participate in the wild goings-on, while others are content to simply observe and eat. The large menu of inventive but affordable rolls is highlighted by the Jupiter --- a cucumber and avocado roll with fried scallops on top. Hot entrées include garlic chicken with steamed rice and sukiyaki. To drink, order a Kamizake or drop a saké bomb. For dessert, among icy creations is the “Pa-Pu-A," a yogurt dish heaped with kiwi, peaches, pears, honeydew, melon, Mandarin orange, banana, lime sherbet and blueberry sauce.
