Food is outstanding . . .fresh, flavorful, and extensive menu. Low key vibe, good service, can hang out at the restaurant as long as you want. . . Never feel rushed.

I work nearby and love coming here for lunch. The restaurant is pleasant inside with good lighting, and a menu that is perfect for me. At lunch you pay around $10 for salad, soup, and an entree--I always get the salmon teriyaki, which is delicious and served with some (soba) noodles, steamed rice, and excellent vegetables. It is a healthy... More

Great lunch special, good value. When we want fresh sushi nearby, new Ginza is always our first choice. And if you have a cold, try the noodle soup- yum!

New Ginza is a favorite of mine. It is expensive -- but I've never had excellent cheap sushi, nor do I want cheap fresh fish. It is always spectacularly fresh and presented beautifully. I always sit at the bar and marvel at the chefs. Last night I had some amazing dishes, including the lamb chops which were perfectly cooked. The... More

It was a pleasure dinning there. Make reservation early it is not a big place and the seats for more than 4 people are very limited.

The food I order was the most sweet food I had ever had in my life! Environment is ok, though it is still a little noisy. In general I don't expect too much for 'Asian' restaurant in US, but this one is definitely not among those which I will go again.

Really great sushi... Clean on the inside. Super small yet nice. I had a sushi with crab and mango it was to die for! There is an extensive list of sushi and the staff was so nice! Parking can be tough because it is on a Main Street.

We love New Ginza and go here more than to any other restaurant. Our favorites are the salmon sashimi (don't bother with any special sauce), the duck appetizer -yes, really, the salmon in parchment, the volcano and the caterpillar. My husband who is a big calamari eater loves theirs -its cooked perfectly and has a great sauce. The wait staff... More

Let me say the staff is great. Refilling water, and smiling just makes your experience a whole lot better. The food was ok ... Not great but its good for a nice meal. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, although the BATHROOMS ARE VERY VERY STRANGE!

My 3 friends and I went here last night, one of my friends has been here before. First of all, LOVE the atmosphere, the light wood and minimalistic decor are a perfect esthetic. The Host and bartender were prompt, polite and attentive, we had a short wait of about 15 minutes. The only unfortunate thing is that there isn't really... More
