We came for an early dinner and the restaurant was empty except for us. The staff was attentive and friendly, and the food came very quickly. Everything was delicious. The facility itself is a bit run down (scratched table and chairs, kind of bland decor), which took away from a five star ambiance, but overall a very good dining experience.

If you are going out to eat with a group of people and not all people are vegan, this is a great option. They serve fish with most of the dishes but you can make all dishes vegan. Great place!

I've been here a few times, but with growing reluctance. I've had several dishes on the menu, and they all seem to lack seasoning. My most recent choice was the Ozu Tempura -- salmon and vegetables prepared tempura-style. The coating was unusually thick and extremely greasy. The service was pleasant enough (if slow), and the lunch struck me as overpriced... More

This is a cute restaurant on the upper west side. Unfortunately, like so many other restaurants in this area, it is rather nondescript. The service is excellent. In addition, the menu has several nice vegetarian options. However, we tried the steamed dumplings, the Ozu noodles, and the vegetable special of the day. While the food was fine, it was rather...

This understated establishment offers tasty and healthy vegetarian cuisine. Our favorites are the ozu roll with pink sauce (comes with a green salad) and the refreshing summer roll that blends tofu, basil, rice noodles and peanut sauce. The Good food, quiet atmosphere, and excellent service keep us coming back whenever we are in New York.

My wife and I had lunch at this cute little restaurant on a Saturday. The food was wonderful--excellent udon, dumplings, etc. The service was also outstanding; our waitress brought us an extra little bowl, without even being asked, in case I wanted to taste my wife's carrot ginger soup (which was really great). She was totally attentive and really sweet... More
