Owner is doing cooking. He was here for 20years. Character of his sushi is bit large "neta" for local customer. Neta(fish)is fresh and use good nori. Place is cosy and bright. Not like other newer sushi like restaurant. Place is more like tea room in Japan. Out side is very simple and bit old. But food is good.

A colleague of mine lead me here one evening, he's been eating here almost every week for 3 years. I've now added it to my "must visit" list when I'm visiting New York. It's not outstanding or somewhere to arrange your partners special birthday but it's friendly, not too expensive and reliable. The sushi is excellent and professionally prepared, a... More

Never judge a book by its cover nor restaurant food by the venue's looks or decor. Some of the best eats in NY City can be found in the most unlikely places. Take Mishima, an unpretentious sliver of a restaurant on a so-so block, just north of where Lexington Avenue becomes known as "Curry Hill" due to the multiplicity of... More

If you're looking for an amazing high energy lots of glitz this isn't it. What you will find is that the food is the star of the show. So if you are seeking a relaxing meal with outstanding quality food in a sub par atmosphere this is a gem! I really enjoyed our meal and saki. We had the spicy... More

I hadn't been here in many years and was pleasantly surprised to see that the food was just as good as I remembered. There are only about 10 tables plus the sushi bar so it is cozy - less so on a cold winter's night when the door can drop the temperature for a minute or two - but the... More

My suggestion is to grab a seat at the sushi bar and just enjoy watching and eating... If he's not too busy, you'll also be able to have a chat with the chef... he's a man of sound advice !

We live around the corner from this restaurant, and when we moved in in 2007 it was the best sushi place in the area. Gradually the quality of their fish deteriorated. Then one night our dinner was interrupted by a mouse poking its head from behind the sushi bar (really!). We stopped going, but as we pass by almost every... More

I've been going to Mishima for many years now and the standard is consistently good. There are normally people waiting for tables at the usual busy times. The service is speedy and always friendly. The food is fresh and delicious and the prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is cosy.

I have been there dozens of times and still prefer it over any other sushi restaurant in NYC. Great sushi, great appetizers, great service, great value. There is really nothing to complain about.

I used to love Mishima and was a regular customer there. I live close by and enjoyed the food & service. In the last year, the food quality has gone down....and the restaurant went from a B (from the Board of Health) to a C......Sorry Mishima, clean up your act...or loose more customers!!
