We have been eating gear for the past few months and live the food the atmosphere and location in the city. The portions are classy and not overdone. Creative rolls keep each trip unique. Quality of the fish is top notch.

If you like Sushi and you are in New York, go to Ajusai! It is our favorite restaurant in Hell’s Kitchen. Shrimp Shumai and Tuna Lover for me, some delicious Sake and some desert ... paired with the good and friendly service ... incredible.

We happened upon Ajisai after visiting a museum. The menu looked interesting and the place was full at lunch time, so we tried it. We really enjoyed the sashimi lunch - $16 for 10 large pieces of fish and a very good miso soup. The...More
