Loved it

While the ambiance is "stortefront" - the staff were all very friendly and helpful with suggestions. Seemed like good quality sushi at a very reasonable price!

We ate here during our trip to New York last Thanksgiving to meet some old friends, and overall I really enjoyed it. The food was good and the service very understanding.

Surprisingly the sushi is good at monster sushi and the prices are pretty good. My wife and I tend to go here for our majority of sushi lunches or dinners.

The sushi is great, the eel nigiri up there with the best I've ever had, but the Beef Tataki is the just awesome. Odd kinda place with office chairs to sit on, but the food is awesome.

Showed up at the restaurant the other evening and saw the big "B" in the window. Well, you have to be crazy to have sushi in a B rated restaurant by the NYC board of health. We left before even stepping inside.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
