Just loved this restaurant, friendly staff, delicious food. We had not made any booking by were welcomed in on a Friday evening and ordered the seared tuna salad, prawn tempura and edamame. Everything was fresh and perfectly cooked. Can’t wait to go back.

Great food, great atmosphere, wonderful location. Genuine Japanese kooks, high standards food. A bit expensive but you should expect it having Japanese two blocks from Time Square! All in all a memorable experience

Excellent place and food. A large variety of fish and foods. Unique lunch dishes are served at affordable prices. Don't forget; this is New York. Not the cheapest place to travel. Recommendable is the Chirashi as a lunch special.

This is not your typical sushi restaurant, go elsewhere if sushi and sushimi is your desire. This is a special Japanese restaurant. Not an attractive space but does the job.
