The menu at Crazy Tokyo is a simple, no frills compilation of sushi that is great for newbie sushi tasters and afficianados alike. They offer all of the best- tuna, california, eel,and salmon rolls with some fancy rolls put in for good measure. I just tried a seaside roll (don't remember the name exactly) that has scallops and crab- it was absolutely incredible and wonderfully filling- because sushi can sometimes leave you with with a half-full stomach. Although they do not offer their 1/2 off deal anymore- the sushi is still worth it and the prices are still very reasonable for the quality.
We're breaking up. Technically we weren't even together to begin with, a well-meaning friend set us up for a date, but you were the WORST date EVER. It's not me, it's you. I thought I had a flu, but no, no...it was FOOD POISONING. I just want to tell you that you didn't even disguise your virulent bacterial content well. Not even at all! You tasted terrible, you were incredibly RUDE, and to top it off you made me and eight of my friends vomit for twelve relentless hours. I hate you! Burn in hell!
Do yourself a favor and NEVER GO HERE EVER!! I received the WORST food poisoning of my life from the sushi here - I know this for a fact because everyone else I went with were stricken with severe diarrhea and vomiting as well.
First of all, the sushi wasn't even that great, the sashimi came in giant pieces the size of ice cubes and the texture of the fish was very mushy. Secondly, the service was not up to par; our waitress was the snottiest girl ever with the worst attitude. And the best part was, there was a MASSIVE big screen television placed right at the front of the restaurant, just inches away from our table which was incredibly tacky, distracting, and just very unappetizing.
New Year's plans were cancelled all around for the 8 other people I went with and the State Health Dept. has been notified.
Consider yourself warned!!!
Seven of us dined at this Korean owned sushi joint. We were seated right next to a gigantic big screened TV that played Entertainment Tonight (tacky, much?). After eating the most UNfresh cucumber albacore, crunch, and spicy tuna rolls, I ate just one (thankfully) of the raw sweet shrimp. A friend who is used to eating the sweet shrimp from other sushi restaurants recommended that I DO NOT eat the rest because it's just not right. Just one day later, on New Years Eve, 5 out of 7 of us became severly ill, constantly running to the bathroom with need to vomit and diarreah. It was obvious to all of us that Crazy Tokyo Sushi gave us food poisoning. Needless to say, all of our New Years plans went down the drain (no pun intended.) In addition and mild in comparison, the service was awful. Our waitress was rude and messed up on splitting the bill in two. JUST SAY NO to Crazy Tokyo Sushi in Tarzana.

I haven't been here in over a year, but the other day my friend and I decided to get over to the Valley and come back to a place we would visit weekly when we lived out there.
The help is still the same, sometimes a little slow, but for myself, that was fine. It was a lazy Saturday, why rush?
I had some nigiri, a few rolls (love the crazy veggie one) and the best hand roll, the baby lobster.
Sure for cheap sushi I go to Kabuki in Hollywood, but Crazy Tokyo will always be a dependable go to.

Yes crazy is cheap, it's is centerally located but the service is the worst in the whole entire world. I went there w/ a co worker and we waited to be seated for 25 minutes on a Thu late afternoon, then we waited another 30 minutes for our server and another 35 minutes for our food, the waiter had attitude, they dont refill your drinks and can't speak english very well but thats not even the real problem, they don't even get your order right! Don't eat here, spend the extra cash and go to Kabuki

Yes, it cheap but what do you expect from a Chinese Knock-off? I took my Japanese friend there and was horrified to find out no one was Japanese! I saw customers bowing and saying ""Arigato"" to the sushi chef. He just smile and bowed back. What a con!

My husband and I have been going to Crazy Tokyo for a number of years now. The food is very good, and there is a wide enough selection of veggie sushi that a vegetarian can leave full and satisfied. Service is usually very good, but as the night goes on they can get very busy resulting in extending waiting for food. The atmosphere is simple but the food is very affordable, which I think more then makes up for it. I also had a birthday party here last year, and they were more then able to handle a larger group of people.

I have been going to Crazy Tokyo Sushi for years - it was the first sushi I ever ate at 18. While the tempura can sometimes be a little over or undercooked, the rolls are original if you vary from the 1/2 price menu, the service is usually quick and friendly and the fish is always fresh. As a customer of 7 years and a patron of all three locations, I highly recommend Crazy Tokyo to all nubi-sushi eaters and for the more adventurous who don't want to spend a fortune.

this place has easily become my favorite casual sushi restaurant in los angeles. burdened with the task of finding a decent one in the metro area, i headed to the valley and was blessed to stumble upon this restaurant. with a minimum of 3 orders per person, the final bill is slashed in half (not physically, though)! don't be wary of the cheapness, the sushi is great. the handrolls are yummy and firm (important for me), the sushi is fresh and tender. they have everything, too, which helps (some places don't carry philadelphia rolls, if you can believe it!). the only slight con is the service, which leans toward ""absent-minded."" i'll forgive that.

This is a great place for inexpensive and really good sushi. The service can be slow at times -- we've had a couple of long waits to get our order -- but the sushi is always good and fresh. My favorites are the salmon, albacore, scallops, any of their cooked volcano rolls and, especially, the lobster roll which is maybe the best roll I've ever had.
