Noshi Sushi
(323) 469-3458
4430 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles

Since I'm pretty new here, I did a search for Noshi and did not see anyone post about it, so I thought I had to share. Noshi isn't trendy, fancy, or pretty. It's a decent, clean, good-sized sushi restaurant with fresh fish and generous portions. My faves include:

Spicy tuna - No kidding, the BEST I've ever had. Not only are the rolls literally overstuffed with spicy tuna, it is beyond tasty. Really, really good, a MUST if you're a spicy tuna lover. You will not be disappointed.

Spicy scallop - Again, a MUST if you are a scallop lover. When I bring guests, most prefer the spicy tuna, but I love scallop, and Noshi's scallop are big, fat, and sweet.

Dynamite - Honestly, the best I've had, and I've tried lots before. I don't really know how to describe it, but definitely worth a try. Squeeze a bit of lemon (it comes with a slice on the side) to bring out more flavor.

Mirugai (spelling?) - Raw abalone. Yum... their portions of this are HUGE! Honestly, you get a really, really piece of abalone, sweet, cold, and a bit crunchy - just as it should be!

I could go on and on... but I won't. I'll be honest - sometimes their other sashimi isn't always consistent. I've had yellowtail that has been awesome, and on other occasions, not so impressive. But the items I described above are always astoundingly good, and never dissapoint.

Oh, just a little tip... if you have a choice of where to sit (at the bar, or table), Su-Sumo-San (spelling?), who is located at the far right when you walk in is the best. He overstuffs all the rolls, and cuts the sashimi like there's no tomorrow! If you have a choice, go with him. When you walk in the front door, the sushi bar will be to the right of the room. Take a sharp right, and head all the way in. This is his "area", if that makes any sense (sorry, I tried explaining as best as I could!).

Let's just say that if you're into a nice, trendy, fancy sushi place, Noshi is not for you. But if you're serious about sushi, and your favorites include spicy tuna and dynamite, definitely try Noshi.
