It's New Yorker's best kept secret sushi restaurant. And for the last 26 years it is. And on top of that - it is the highest gap between decor and food. And you can't make reservations. You have to stant in line in the cold of night. That's why I like it. That's why you shouldn't go - cause you'll... More

We just ate a superb meal here. We ave had unagi (freshwater eel) and this was betterhan any we had in Tokyo or Kyoto. The California roll was large and succulent. Service was quick and attentive. Very reasonably priced.

Don't expect red carpets, soft lighting or sofas. This place is rustic as hell, full of atmosphere and jam packed! The food is superb and that is what matters. An experience !

If you find yourself if this neighborhood, avoid much of the student-y, cheap shack of subpar food and find your way to this place. You won't be disappointed! This place is wonderful though --- if you are looking for just great traditional sushi and not all of the super junked up rolls. You won't find truffle oil here. What's to... More

Well hidden in the west village in an anonymous building that you could recognize just by the line waiting outside for a table. Inside a small rather dingy room crowded with tables to fit as many people as they can ( Fire Marshall would have an infarct). But everything else is delicious. The food prepared by a Japanese old guy... More

The sushi comes in nice healthy portions and is super fresh. I'm not sure how they get it so fresh but it is. It adds up a bit but what you get is totally worth it. Great for something special: date, friends, family, whatever. If you are a tourist, you will be lucky you found this. If you are a... More

My husband and I are "sushi snobs" and we were amazed with this place! It is a hole in the wall with the best sushi we have ever had. Highly recommend the seaweed salad, tuna and yellowtail rolls. If you're traveling with younger kids that have a broader palate, they also have great chicken teriyaki and rice options that my... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
