I used to be a regular. At least twice a week. Last night I ordered a sashimi de lux. I was charged $4 for another bowl of rice. When confronted, the manager could not be more confrontational. Last time there.

... but other dishes are great too, as well as the ambiance and the service. I don't know about the Japanese beer, but one of my friends appreciates it. We loved the place, give it a try.

We live in the neighborhood and frequently dined here … until today's awful experience. As "regulars," we had an Amber card that accrued dining points. When we presented it today, the waiter told us that the restaurant no longer offers this promotion. I asked to speak to the manager; each time the waiter left us to speak to someone, came... More

I frequent this place quite often with my family and friends. Food is presented nicely and pretty good. Drinks are presented nicely too, but a bit weak. The Duck main course was tasty, overfried, and a bit sparce of Duck; a bit disappointing. One time I went, the waiter forgot to returna friend's credit card to the table and not... More

We stopped in before late night shopping. The sushi was delicious! The service was efficient, but helpful. Very welcoming and inviting ambiance! There was one in the group of four who did not order sushi. She ordered a noodle dish instead and thoroughly enjoyed it. We would definitely visit again!

Went there with friends for good sushi and we were not disappointed. The fish was fresh, well cut and the portion size was good. The service was fast and friendly. The prices are a little high.

Please Please Please do not eat here! This place defines the kind of place that Yelp reviews can fool you into eating at. It is like eating at a militaristic restaurant with millions of rules. Most of the sushi is not included in the "all you can eat" menu and all things extra are charged-spicy mayo, special rolls. The drinks... More

Multiple choices of cocktails and sake; with wide choice of Asian Fusion dishes and sushi and rolls will keep you happy. The price is reasonable and portion generous. A neighborhood favorite.

My boyfriend and I went here the other day as a good friend recommended the restaurant. We got a little bit of everything and were very happy. The fish was very fresh and the sushi Delish. The Amber ribs and crispy sangria duck were delicious. The service was also amazing. I admit the sushi was a bit overpriced compared to... More

I have been to numerous restaurants in NYC in the last 13 years and for a reason or another was never completely satisfied, either because of the location, the smell, the service or even the food! This restaurant beats them all for its exquisite cuisine rich in flavour but delicate and lean, which matches refined 5star chef presentations. The service... More
