When I go to NYC, I never missed a dinner at TOMOE SUSHI. The best sushi place in NYC. The fish is incredibly fresh and fast served once ordered. The variety of the different pieces is enormous and the quality is outstanding. The best is to seat at the sushi bar to choose directly the piece of sushi or sashimi... More

I read about this place in a Michelin guide- and the rumours are true. This is worth standing in line for, and not because it's a five star sushi restaurant. This place doesn't look like much, but the focus is on great sushi, not overall dining experience. I sat at the bar and had the salmon ceviche, sashimi salad, a... More

They're still lining up for this truly wonderful hole-in-the-wall sushi joint. I started coming here in 1987 while a student at NYU and whenever I'm in NYC (3-4 times a year) I always make it a point to come here at least once! The menu is large but fairly basic. If you want fancy rolls or more exotic fish, this... More

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.
