Five of us stopped by Robongi for some Japanese food. This is a long narrow storefront restaurant with tables on either side of a center pathway. In the back there is a full view of the sushi chefs. The service was prompt and professional. This is not the place for a quiet, romantic outing. It can get quite loud and... More

Someone else here said "there's more to sushi than raw fish"! I could not agree more. This place is just average at best. The atmosphere is the worst I've ever been to. Extremely loud with too many tables crammed in the place. I was next to my daughter and could not hear her. I had sushi and I can't even... More

This is a very odd place. The service is not very good. They rush you out and are not very hospitable. The atmosphere is also a bit werid with loud music and odd decor. The food is ok, the dishes and the sushi are not bad, but not the best I've ever had. It has a nice outdoor area, but... More

We've tried many different sushi places in Hoboken and I can safely say that this is the best one. The sushi is always fresh and reasonably priced. Great servers especially when they get to know you. This establishment is BYOB, so that also helps in keeping the cost down

I had a wonderful meal with my gf at Robongi. The place is dimly lit and has a nice ambiance. BYOB makes it even better. We shared a roll from the special rolls menu which was very interesting and fresh. It was four different flavors done individually as opposed to one long roll. For my entree I tried (first time)...

I've lived in Hoboken for ten years, and this has always been our go to place for sushi. Byob, but the restaurant is happy to accommodate. The sushi is always good, and the rice is always freshly made. I've been to other sushi places where you can tell the rice is old by how hard and crumbly it is. Be... More

Living in Hoboken, Robongi is a regular place for us. The sushi is outstanding and the other dishes are extremely well done. We have been going there for years and loved it, but their excellence hit home after a trip to Japan. I visited the Tsujiki fish market in Tokyo and had a sushi breakfast at a nearby place. The...

Robongi prominently displays ratings from prestigious food guides. However, upon examination, you will see they're all between 10-6 years old. I don't know if they changed management, or sushi chefs since then, but, just like so many other Japanese restaurants managed by Chinese people, the food is kind of bland, and the raw fish rather tasteless. There's more to sushi... More

Went to Robongi with wife and friend. Had a terrific sushi based dinner. The salmon teryaki was particularly good. Remember that the restaurant is BYOB, a small inconvenience, but waiters have been very helpful and opened and served our bottles.
