excellent food and service

This small, authentic restaurant was quiet, relaxing, and the food was terrific. Very reasonably priced with some unique menu items and excellent service.

We stayed at The Lex NYC which is close to this restaurant. Interior and exterior are very simple but one look at the cook and you know enough. This is a real Japanese owned restaurant with descent prices. We ate here twice! The sashimi and the lobster miso soup are recommended.

This is one of the best Sushi restaurant you can find in NYC. It is a simple, non-sophisticated place with a few table and a little Sushi Bar and the Sushi is fresh and just great!!!

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
