An excellent and reasonable Sushi in NYC

This a good Sushi restaurant; we went as a family, we enjoyed the service which was impeccable. The portions are ample, the quality of the fish was excellent, and so were the other dishes.

High quality sushi and wonderful appetizers both hot and cold. We have been to Japan over 10 times and Kanoyama is like a trip to a traditional neighborhood of Tokyo. The Omakase Sashimi or Sushi is wonderful tradition and freshness We had the summer appetizers of soft shell crab and corn tempura which was recommended and delightful good selection on... More

I can never get tired of eating here because the chef is so creative and the fish is so fresh that each and every single time ends up being an amazing experience. Chef Nobu is a true gentleman too. He remembers you very well and even if you show up two months later you will know you're the guy who... More

Don't miss the fried oysters. Service was outstanding, especially considering how we kept on ordering. It is small and the décor is not anything to write about, but, it is worth it for the great sushi.

We went last night and were pleasantly surprised. The storefront was not too impressive. We sat down and were pleasantly surprised. Very friendly and accomodating staff, polite and eager to please. The sushi was very fresh and we tried many of the appetizers. Great ambiance. No need for a reservation if you get there before 7pm. Popular place....very busy for... More

Kanoyama has high quality sushi for prices that won't break the bank. I'm not saying it's cheap, but the value-for money is very high. I opted for the Omakase (Chef's choice) and I got a beautiful collection of some of the best raw fish I've had outside of Japan (see picture). Also tried the gyozas and they were excellent: moist...

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
