The foods were very creative and used fresh vegetables. Nigiri sushi was fresh and great. The restaurant was elegant and clean. All staff were friendly and professional. If you really want to experience real Japanese, this is the one.

Was actually looking for a different restaurant, but walked by this one and was very pleased. Fast service and food was good.

What a great sushi spot midtown! They recently had a management change (end of 2013) but I was never here under the old management so I can't compare anything. I just know I loved it tonight :) I just got back in the country last week after almost two months abroad and couldn't WAIT for some amazing sushi... I asked... More

The poor service issue is systemic, not the servers. Bad process and or training. The food was just OK - I would pass. The outside seating is casual. I normally look for good in every review. Tough to find here.

For only the 2nd time in my life, I walked out without ordering because the service was so atrociously bad. I waited 5 minutes to be seated (I was seen, but ignored by the staff). I was then seated (in an empty dining room) with no apologies and a couple of dirty menus were thrown at me. There were flies... More

We went to Shinbashi b/c it was rated high by Tripadvisor. We had lunch sushi which came with miso soup and salad that was not so fresh. The quality of sushi was excellent, and knowing the same set at Hatsuhana is $ 22, $ 17.25 was reasonable. This place reminds me of sushi restaurants in Ginza - fashionable and attentive... More

Our hotel concierge recommended this restaurant to us. We almost turned around after entering because it was so empty on a Saturday night. I'm so glad we didn't. The food and service were excellent. I went there with my husband, kids, and mom (who, by the way was born and raised in Japan). We all loved it. Hiroko was an... More

I know we were in NYC, so everything was expensive. We ate good quality of seafood and also got good services, but I felt a little more expensive than we expected.

We went here for a business lunch and were not disappointed. The lunch specials are very good value, and the restaurant convinced us with friendly and efficient service. We asked for a couple extra items, which came very well prepared with fresh ingredients.

Husband and I popped in at 6:15 on a Friday night. Wasn't v crowded. Service was fantastic. Had miso soup and some rolls. All was fresh and well prepared. We were thoroughly satisfied and would definitely recommend to others. Also, it had just about the cleanest restaurant bathroom I've ever used.
