I walked half-way across across the city for this place, and it was SO WORTH IT! The eel was easily the best I've ever had and I have had A LOT of eel from lots of different places. Very fast and friendly service and all our sushi was delicious.

After reading all of the rave reviews on here, I had to try it out. The place is TINY so if you don't get there super early you will have to wait for ages! Had a few different types of sushi and can think of plenty of other places that serve much better sushi. Won't come here again unless I... More

I visited this restaurant with a friend during a visit to NYC as I wanted to try a good Japanese place. Since they don't accept reservations, there is always a line for dinner so I would suggest to go early to avoid waiting in line too long. Their menu is quite extensive (and it can be daunting to make a... More

High quality and fair prices make this a go to for NYers in the know. Go for lunch or an early dinner. It can be a tad difficult to get in so plan to get there early. The place is small and intimate. But Well worth the wait. The sushi or sashimi deluxe is fabulous. The pieces of fish are... More

I go to Tomoe sushi several times. The food is always very fresh and good. The place is cool, with the menu on the walls. Location is great in the west village. Prices very cheap compared to the quality of the sushi. It is a small restaurant though, therefore I suggest you to go very early <7 pm to avoid... More

Very good sushi in Greenwich. Long waiting to have a seat but a very excellent sushi experience. No reservation and no credit card. Prices are a little bit high.

Tomoe is a classic NYC sushi haunt on Thompson Street in the West Village, having served generous portions of the freshest sushi and sashimi for years. Their lineups are legendary and annoyingly long. They actually have an outdoor "staging" alcove where sake can be served as you wait for a table. While their sushi and sashimi are the stars of...

Been coming for years to this little sushi spot for ages. Sashimi deluxe or sushi sashmi combo is the way to go. Affordable and better than many quality, an old friend.

We inched to the door through a moderately long line, and by the time we got to the door, the C rating from the health department felt more like an ironic smile than a dire warning. I'm so glad we proceeded indoors. Tomoe is the classic NY place that gets harder to find: good food prepared by good people. We... More
