if you really love sushi, do not go to this place. You would leave disappointed. My girlfriend ate fried noodles and she said there were ok. Our server was nice and friendly but I cannot say the service was very good. Eat inside. If you stay outside and too close to the road you will smell quite a bit of... More

The sushi and shrimp fried rice were both very good, we would go back. They are very busy at night, so its not for people in a hurry. This was a very good, relaxing dinner.

I don't agree with any of the reviewers,we are regulars at Nobu in NYC and we loved this place. The sushi was fresh and delicious. We had salads, sushi, salmon balls, it was all very, very good. It is small but we didn't feel cramped at all, we really enjoyed our meal. Service was great also.

Small. One "table"is in the traditional flat on the floor style. Two tables have bench style seating with no seatbacks and pillows to sit on. They other side of the table has something like a seat. Yes, service was slow but polite and patient when asked about the nuances of the sushi menu. Ordered the combo platter and was not... More

my kids loved their fried rice with chicken dish, it was a big portion for only $14. My husband and I ordered sushi combo and it took over an hour for the man to serve us. It was not a full house, but the guy making the sushi really does take his time. If you are in a hurry, definitely... More

Went inside for a seat, but not greeted by anybody for about 5 minutes. Took about 50 minutes till our roll and udon got served. Udon was extremely salty and tasted just like a campbells chicken noodle soup...but cost 15bucks????Are you kidding? The roll with salmon was not fresh. Took us another 10 mins for the check and payment. I... More

The good: Arikok roll and Sashimi. The bad: slow service, fumes from cars when sitting outdoors. Overall: steer clear during lunch as it is hot out and lots of fumes hang around from people looking for a parking spot.

One more joint where they think putting fish on sticky rice equals sushi. This place is just bad. They have obviously no clue the rice must be seasoned, and the fish must be fresh. And when you order crab (as written on the menu!) you expect to being served crab, not surimi crap. Adding insult to injury, they also put... More

First of all we sat inside because it was super hot out - their a/c was BARELY working, which makes you question the refrigeration of the fish. We ordered a spicy tuna roll, a yellowtail scallion roll, and a salmon cucumber roll - pretty basic sushi and the waitress was completely confused and the sushi chef couldn't comprehend. What came...
