Looking for the Best Americanized Sushi in LA!

After my last dinner taking out-of-towners to sushi.....I realize... I need help.
They are looking for super crazy rolls and I don't know where to go!
So I'm looking for some Americanized Sushi recs around town. Ones that have a loooonnnng list of wacky rolls. And is good quality and yummy fresh. I want my guests to be super happy, but I want to be super happy too! Is this possible?
Hollywood, Burbank, Glendale, West LA, Santa Monica....My sweetiepie works on the west side, and I work in Burbank. Sucker for long-distance relationships...
Atmosphere: Not scary to an out-of-towner
Oh and if it doesn't break the bank, that would be a plus too! Thanks for all help!
Koi, Katsuya and Geisha House are good for this sort of thing. I give Katsuya the nod for having the better food out of the three. Hamasaku really does have a super long list of crazy rolls. Probably the longest one I've ever seen!
If you are in the mood for all you can eat, try Midori Sushi in Studio City. It's about $25/person. The have 10+ different rolls for you to try. My favorite one is the "Family Roll" (if I remember the name right). It was topped with seared albacore with spicy tuna filling and drizzle with ponzu sauce. Yum yum yum~~~~
11622 Ventura Blvd.
Studio City, CA 91604
Even though they don't have a long list of rolls, Tokyo Table has a lot of modernized Japanese dishes that are fun to eat (and they probably have the wackiest sushi dish of all... a baked "sushi pizza" which is surprisingly good when I tried it)
Geisha House in Hollywood and Tengu in Westwood/Santa Monica and K-Zo in Culver City are also appropriate fits for those looking for a lot of rolly sushi.
oooo thanks for all the great recs so far! wow sushi pizza! hehe that sorta scares me but you never know....
And Trolley, it doesn't have to be Yamashiro in appearance, but I guess no really old strip mall sushi joints with 2 tables.
ME personally am fine with where ever, as long as its good food. Just thinking of my out-of-towners who are just used to eating sushi at the brand new restaurant at their local mall.
