Third time is not a charm, only average. Sat at a nearly empty bar area on a Wednesday night during happy hour. This place used to jam at happy hour, what's going on? I ordered a seaweed salad, shumai dumplings, yellowtail ceviche, California roll and spicy tuna roll. All were good, very average. Happy hour drink and food specials should... More

I've been going here every month or so since I moved to Jersey in 2008. Favorite restaurant in Jersey, hands down. The food is nothing short of amazing and the service couldn't be better. Whether you are treating your significant other to a night out or going out for drinks and sushi after work, this is your place. The Happy... More

Ate at the bar for happy hour specials. Pricing is very good for small plate menu. I had a sashimi deluxe dinner. Run of the mill soup and salad. Presentation of my dinner was very good, but the quality and freshness of the fish was not on par with my last visit. Average at best. Might have been an off... More

Always the freshest ingredients. Full bar service, hibachi and table service. Family friendly, or good for a romantic date.

This used to be my go-to sushi place where I would easily drop $30 per person. However, recently the portions have been cut in half. I read some news in the paper about tax evasion... is this how the owner's are making up their profit???

This place is a wonderful Japanese restaurant which has hibachi. The food is just as good as their location in pier village but the prices are lower which is great. I would definitely recommend doing the hibachi. I had the chicken and shrimp and it was great! Only difference is the atmosphere and ambiance at the restaurant in Pier village... More

I really love the atmosphere of this restaurant. Plus, the food is amazing. Expect to pay higher prices here because they are caring the name Sawa with them. There is another one by the Pier Village that is pretty good as well.

Not the cheapest place, but we have dined in the private dining room, the sushi bar, and the hibatchi tables. All is great, but we do really like the Oyster Shooters!!! Try to get there early as weekend waits are crazy, even with reservations.
