Noshi Sushi.....anyone been lately?
When I lived in Hollywood a few years ago was a regular at Noshi. I always found it outstanding for the price. Far better than Hide....the closest thing I can think of on the Westside. Haven't been for a while. Would appreciate an update on Noshi.....and any other reasonably priced Westside sushi places.
Noshi Sushi serves up the best chicken teriyaki tempura combos in the city. The chicken is boneless white meat, the sauce is not too sweet and just right. I hate overly sweet teriyaki sauce - it ruins everything. The tempura has the right amount of coating. So many restaurants put too much breading and you taste the batter not the shrimp or veggies. Tempura should be light, never greasy.

We have enjoyed Noshi for dinner over the years, but I feel as though they are on a slide. For about the past couple of years, it has not been as reliably consistent as it had been years ago.
The prices are still unbeatable! You can eat until you can't for about $15 - $20/per person (without drinks, tax and gratuity)...for sushi, that's pretty amazing! However, the sushi can vary in quality from one item to the next and from one visit to the next. Even their spicy tuna -- which is usually outstanding -- is sometimes not so good...although they assert that the "recipe" never changes (but the quality of the tuna does!).
The place is screaming for an update! There is an "old" smell to it (I know, some have lovingly called it "old school charm") and I'd love for them to freshen their carpet and everything else. Still, it is worth a visit if you are satisfied with decent sushi at very good prices.
Went with Mrs. Chandavkl a few months ago--she had been a regular there in years past but hadn't gone in a while. Honestly we found the sushi at the Nijiya Market on Sawtelle to be better. Strikes me as a forever place that doesn't change, so if you liked it before you could still like it today, if you hadn't encountered anything better in the interim.
Noshi is in a time warp. Cash only ,same decor and the prices are the same. I still enjoy going there
and they stay open all afternoon throught dinner. I usually order the salmon uni albacore salad and
yellowtail rolls. Large portions and fair prices. I always sit at a table and order from the sushi list. I
have learned to avoid the miso soup. I also like their green tea. Where can you get Chirashi for $9.00?
Not for sushi snobs you know who you are!
