Party trays/platters for SUSHI and THAI FOOD in the West L.A./Simi Valley/Northridge/Chatsworth area?!
I"m having an event in a few months and trying to find party trays or platters of decent sushi (I'm half-Japanese with Japanese family, so it has to be passable) and Japanese bar food (kara-age, tempura, etc.) AND party trays or platters of thai food (pad see ew, pad thai, curries, etc.).
Ideally, they'll deliver, be affordable, and taste good.
Happy eating! =)
IN WEST LA:
For Thai, you could try Siam Chan (just south of Santa Monica Blvd. on Colby Ave.). It's a bit Americanized, and I've never used them for a party (just me and my partner), but it's respectable Thai food at a good price, and they definitely deliver (at least w/i West LA/Brentwood). The only catch is that the delivery time is usually ~45 min.
For sushi, would Nijiya supermarket work (Sawtelle and Olympic)? You could certainly order a party platter there, but I've never had the sushi and can't vouch for its quality. If possible, you might want to try a small package of sushi from their fridge area to see how it tastes....
Hara sushi (Brentwood) is Korean-owned, I think. However, the sushi quality is definitely decent (although not necessarily better than decent) and they can handle a large volume. Doubt they deliver, though.
IN THE SFV:
There's Asahi Sushi at the corner of Devonshire and Woodley. Also Korean-owned, I think, but, again, the sushi is totally decent, and they should be able to easily handle a relatively large volume. Don't know if they deliver.
Not familiar w/ Thai restaurants in the SFV, but Lum Ka Naad in Northridge was mentioned in another thread recently and a couple of posters said they enjoyed the food there.
In Woodland Hills (Ventura near Corbin) is Sushi Ichiban Kan. I am sure they can prepare sushi platters, as well as some of the bar food items you would like. (I've never tried their kara-age, but their temp is very good.) I don't know if they would deliver though; it might depend on how much you were ordering.
In Chatsworth, Omino Sushi on devonshire is the local favorite. Their sushi is very good, but it may be an expensive option. I've also found Sushi Ko in Porter Ranch to be very good, and may be more reasonable.
