“Real boats”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Long queue. Good food but most fun it are the sushi boats. Little boats carry sushi round the bar. Get a bar seat ESP if u have kids. We didn't due to the queue and kid was really disappointed.

“Typical sushi boat joint”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Pricey for the amount of food. Unless you are next to the chefs the selection is limited by the time the boats get to you. Have had much better sushi.

“Fun place to visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Quaint little place...good sushi. The boats are a clever gimmick and an interesting talking point. You get a chance to visit with others around you.

“I find it hard to believe a few folks didn't enjoy this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

I've been eating downstairs here for years, as its just up the block from my home away from home hotel, The Handlery Hotel on Union Square. The meals at both lunch and dinner are well-placed and well-priced and I've always found the service most-friendly.I opt for the Tempura Plates and the Buckwheat noodles called UDON and I've only ever encountered good service and large, fresh portions.
