This is our second review about this tiny Sushi Restaurant on the East Side. The quality of the sushi is fantastic, this a classic sushi style with the best fishes the market can offer. The unbelievable speed of the service (they obviously want you to eat an Omakase Menu in one hour) is ok, but sometimes you would need a... More

I'll forgo repeating all the previous very positive reviews to avoid repetition. And yes, this place is starkly decorated but compared to the finest places in Japan this joint is huge. If you think Nobu is the best place on earth due to the cool factor just skip this and stick with fashionable/hip (no slight meant to Nobu, I enjoy... More

Everyone will talk smack about the atmosphere....fine...i will give you that. This is top notch sushi. High quality. Consistent. Quiet. Relaxed. Reliable. Never overcrowded. These guys are not into giving you music and a party. They make sushi and they are gd damn good at it.

Trust the man behind the counter to serve you the best sushi on the East coast. With a decent bottle of sake it will run you three tanks of gas a person, but it's well, well worth it if you are an aficionado. I've brought all kinds of people here, and everyone has always left in awe. So full they... More

Kenji, the owner goes every morning at 4 am to the fish market so there is never any worry about the freshness of the fish/seafood! You should definitely TRUST HIM and eat whatever is served in front of you! I would definitely recommend sitting at the sushi bar. The only downside of this amazing restaurant, is perhaps the décor but... More

The food there is fresh, and the sushi specials are good enough. Would definitely go there next time when I want to have Japanese food.

This place is very cozy and inviting. Like the fact that orders are handled fast and accurate. The food there is fresh, and the sushi specials are good enough. I recommended a friend to go there and she loved it as well. Would definitely go there next time when I want to have Japanese food.

I love it, the food is good and fresh. We didn't wait and the order is fast. The restaurant is not noisy, the location is good. They serve some special sushi we like. I think our family will come back when we travel to New York next time. I highly recommend this restaurant.
