Has anyone been to Hadaka Sushi on Sunset?
Was invited here for a friend's birthday and went, against my will...
I gave it a chance and was hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but the food really is terrible, as bad as the goofy innuendo's...and things just got worse from there. Ultimately rude & arrogant manager/owner guy with an atttude that permeated throughout (not to mention Napoleon complex). Two servers were VERY quick to openly bad-mouth him.
Atmosphere is consistent with the above... seemed like it was all birthdays/bachelor parties.
After seeing how this place is run, and who is running it, do not think it will be around long...too much of a novelty even for its location.
Yes- I went to the pre-opening party. Personally, I think it's a joke. Being from Japan, I have certainly heard of this phenomenon before but it is usually in a private party-like setting. Having a restaurant built around the concept of eating sushi off of naked women is silly.
1) No, the food isn't good. Mediocre sushi, strange mix of appetizers
2) N/A- since it was a party
3) The restaurant, on the outside, looks like an IHOP- completely wrong for a Japanese restaurant, although I wouldn't call Hadaka sushi a Japanese restaurant. With so many great sushi options in Los Angeles, don't waste your money, unless you're throwing a bachelor party or something.

I've never been, but after seeing it in various media outlets I can honestly say I have no desire to go. The theme is sex & sushi, and the "naughty" menu consists of items called "sex beads," "cunnilingus," "smelly fingers" and "dirty sanchez." What's sad is that the names are totally arbitrary and don't even make sense. "Wet clam" is salmon, avocado, onions and miso aioli. Not even a hint of clam in there. Check out their menu on their website: www.hadakasushi.com.
Also of note, if you've got $1,000 or more to drop, you can request nyotaimori, where you eat sushi off of a naked woman.
I have a sense of humor, but this way too much. Especially when you're trying to eat raw fish. I guess the sushi purist in me would much rather head to Little Tokyo or West LA for some awesome fish served by completely clothed sushi chefs.
