I don't like sushi, but this place is totally bonkers and a wacky fun time. It's like an electric parade of flashing lights, singing waiters, and Japanese booze.
Unprofessional – From the security to the atmosphere it was great. We were actually disrespected by the Owner of the restaurant. As we walk in, there was no sign that indicated no caps allowed. We waited in the next room for us to go in, we looked at pictures with guys with caps.(baseball hats) As we were inside for more than an hour the owner told my husband to take off his hat, as he looked around 4 to 5 gentlemen had it on. As my husband tried talking to the owner, he ignored us. Finally when he came over he had a nasty attitude. My husband i decided to leave. as we walk outside the owner followed us and started calling my husband a Bitch and that he was his Bitch. Also he said he will Kick is ass .He called him a fat piece of s**t All because we wanted to know why everyone was wearing a hat. Even his security and co-manger look confuse at his request. I have never felt more disrespected as we did that day. I would not recommend that place unless they change management. As we were walking away he kept screaming at my husband. Even people around were surprise when they found out he was the owner and how unprofessional he was acting. He stated he was the owner!
Horrible!!!!! – Be conversational: Write as if relaying your experience to a good friend.
Be thorough: Mention your favorite products or services offered by this business, such as menu items, home delivery or spa treatments.
Be local: Identify the neighborhood where the business is located and mention nearby attractions when relevant.Horrible, horrible, horrible!!!! NOthing else can explain!!! I have been going to Tokyo Delves for last few years and every time the service gets worse and worse. Last weekend we had a friend come from Atlanta and it was his birthday night...We made reservations a week and a half prior..We paid $80 to take a taxi to make sure no one drives drunk..Show up wait in line, check in, get wristband and then they tell us to wait on the side...we were only a party of 4! They let every single person in before us and shut the door in our face. Soooo disrespectful...No explanation as to why. We asked for a manager they told us "oh he was just here but hes not anymore..hes inside now" We were shocked!!!! The group of 6 behind us paid off one of the security and they had NO RESERVATIONS!!!! That is sad...I was not expecting exceptional customer service here...being the drunken, wild place it is..but come on...To watch a pay off happen and be disrespected in front of our out of town guest...Its a shame...I will never ever go to this restaurant/bar again. I also have a huge network I have shared this story with, who also agree. GO BACK TO OLD MANAGEMENT!!! Cause the current one stinks!
There is no comparison! – This was a BLAST!! let me start by getting the negative's out of the way... yes you may have a reservation for 10:30pm but you might not get in until a 1/2 hour afterward. The food is so-so to tell you the truth I don't remember much about the food due to ALL the Sake Bombs we had. Note to future guests EAT the food! We paid $30.00+ per person for the food ALONE and I think we had A LOT of food left... but as I said we were so busy drinking we didn't get around to really eating all of the food they put out. Parking is mainly street or there are some lots near there but you will still have to walk to the restaurant.
BEWARE Lots of cops driving around in fact be SURE to have a DD or have them arrange cab service for you because the cops were hovering outside while we were in line to go inside. Bouncers/Door people were nice to me but I do think they can BE aggressive when needed. There were 2 fights while we were there but the staff was on it by mili-seconds! Our bill was over $1k so come prepared and a rule of thumb was just to budget $100.00 per person if you are coming with a drinking crowd... My New England Patriots group likes beer just like the rest of America's Sports Fans!
The pluses this was a REALLY fun place, we sang, we danced, we sang some more... I think it is perfect for Bachelor/ettes Parties, Birthday celebrations. If you can't get to Vegas when someone is turning 21 take them here this was great. Because you are "banging" the table when you do the Sake Bombs I would warn females do NOT wear anything you might not want Beer spilled on. Also there were some tables that dressed up with Feodora's and leis it was a BLAST!
OK... – I wasn't really impressed at all with this place. If im in Hollywood already, ima just go ahead and go to Club Sushi
good food – The food is good here but servers could be little more better. I used to go weekly with my co-workers they like the food very much, but serves too slow !! ***!!
A hyperactive fun night out – If you’re looking for a quite night out go somewhere else. This place is loud, non-stop fun. They let us in at about 10:30 and kicked us out at around 12:30, so it felt like being at the center of a whirlwind of energy for a couple of hours and being hurled out into the quiet dark night at the other end, I could still feel the energy buzzing, like the hum of silence in your ears after the music was turned off. Different waiters kept visiting our table every once in a while and joined us dancing near our table, they had fun with us but weren’t pushy when one of us felt like just sitting a song out quietly. They let you be. The interior is not impressive, it felt like someone tried to make club out of their basement by painting the walls black, but it doesn’t really matter, it actually fit well with the cheesy music, disco dancing, the N’SYNC wannabe waiters and sushi chef’s act, Sake bombs and the rest of the craziness that they condense into two hyperactive hours. Great place for a celebration with a large group.
Fun, Fun, Fun – I love this place. And the food is decent; all my friends and I were satisfied whether it was sushi or beef /chicken teriyaki. But yes, the main draw is the entertainment. This is not a place for people who take themselves too seriously, who are restrained and shy, or can't simply let loose and be silly once in a while. The whole restaurant drinks and dances together, and the waiters put on insanely high-energy, outlandish performances. And as far as the cancellation policy goes, they inform you of all that in advance. Ultimately, drunken fun is had by all.
Go Drink, don't eat! – We heard about this place from a friend so I decided to have my boyfriends birthday there ... IT WAS TONS OF FUN!!! we're all naturally a bunch of goofballs so this joint felt like home!!! You're allowed to sing an dance while standing on your chair, cheer as loud as you can, and spill some beer ... so long as you're chugg'n the rest down!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! the servers are super cool and the drinks are plentiful. The food tho ... eh, if it's a small group you don't have to worry too much about it but if you have a large group like we did ... it get's super pricy and the food isn't worth it at all!
Try it tho ... you'll love it!
Functions as intended – Don't go for the food. Go if you want to drink a lot of sake and watch/ do some silly stuff and just let loose. Personally, I thought it was fun.
