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...

Most of the fish, if not all, is flown from Japan, and they are all quality fish. I had a previledge of speakjng with owner chef Nobu for a while, and he's the sweetest guy:)... More

I came with a date, we enjoyed sake, some dumplings & sushi for two. Service was good & sushi chefs were on point. The fish used was great quality but I was disappointed to see crab stick used in the Cali. Thank you!

My wife and I have eaten in most Sushi spots in the city and Kanoyama is by far one of our favorites! If you can, get a seat at the sushi bar. The tuna ribs are an amazing dish and the uni oyster ikura is not to be missed. The fish is super fresh and the staff couldn't have been... More

The restaurant looks like your average Japanese you find many of here in New York, and most of these restaurants do not disappoint. But this restaurant does a lot more, the sashimi and sushi rice are unbelievable, unexpected for the place it seems. It has a great atmosphere and the variety of the food is great. And for the food... More

Ate at bar, sushi was very good, spider roll exceptional, salmon terrific, california roll was super pedestrian. Service professional. Nice Jazz, though decor was pretty unexceptional. Overall, decent meal, if you want good sushi in East Village will deliver...but didn't feel like I would go out of my way to go back there.

If you love sushi then you must try Kanoyama. Reservations are needed and they took us promptly at our rez time. My husband I ordered the sushi platter for 2 which the chef puts together - it had a total of 3 rolls and 8 pieces of sushi each. It also comes with Miso. I highly recommend letting the chef...

Came in and sat for 15 minutes before I flagged down a server. He had no idea what was going on. Mediocre experience. It has a grade B from the city food safety office where they give out A's like candy. So many choices for great sushi in the city you really should consider another place.

The sushi here is very, very good for the price. I always get the chef's special which is more than enough food and I love the shumai and fried oysters. The service is sometimes a little confused at the restaurant and you can get jammed in at busy times but they also deliver and have take-out which are great options!
