There are plenty of places to have sushi in New York, but this is my favorite! It is casual, reasonably priced, and filled with playful underwater fish paintings on the walls. The sushi is delicious!

Good food, always fresh, great service. The staff is always paying attention but not obtrusive. This is actually the first time I've been able to finish my meal, since it's a lot of food. The bento boxes are my favorite - a bit of everything! Usually not a fan of chain restaurants, but somehow (even though I know there are... More

Staying at hotel in the neighborhood on Christmas Day withy daughter. Stumbled upon it for a late lunch early dinner because nothing else was open. I would go back any time. The gyoza and shumai were very good. We had 2 rolls, one was the SantaClaus roll, we had to try it on Christmas. It was great! The tuna roll... More

The sushi is great. The pricing is spot on. The quantities are great. I really like this place, and i think the quality is what you pay for. I don't leave hungry, and the service is always attentive.

Always enjoyable! Very popular and for a reason. Can either sit at a table or at the sushi train counter. Fast efficient service and good food.

Have been eating at the Chelsea restaurant for a few years now, and the food is always good. They have a great selection of custom rolls as well. Check out the Crazy Tuna roll for sure.

I've been coming to Monster Sushi for years - it's about time I wrote a review for the place. Of course it's convenient in terms of location but the best part is I've never had to wait for a table – ever. But it always has a good crowd, go figure. If I'm by myself, I sit at the bar.... More

Teriyaki salmon was a little overcooked but still good. Decent miso soup. Decent green tea. Good rice. Prices could have been a little lower.

My girlfriend and I found this place rather on accident and of the thee or four sushi places that were nearby, this one looked the most inviting. Simply put: it was delicious, we thought the prices were reasonable, and the staff was extremely hospitable. We're going to return when we are next in the city, but I have definitely been... More
