This restautant is in a strip mall with other restaurants and even a tiny tomato bank. If you come when it’s busy (like weekends), parking can be difficult but they do have valet parking.
Blue Marlin has recently been slightly remodeled with new furniture but the food is the same old great stuff. They have curry, pasta, and even risotto (delish!) all prepared in a slightly Japanese-trying to be-bistro style. It’s located in the “West Little Tokyo” area on Sawtelle, with all the other Japanese restaurants and stores.
This OM rice ($9.95) is basically rice wrapped in an omlet. I actually like the one at the Curry House better, but this one’s good too. Be sure to try their salmon dinner, and any of their pastas.
