Excellent - absolutely recommend - - Sophie's Decision roll!!!! Fresh, close to theaters, good service, yum yum! We came here on a whim and boy are we glad we did! Not only is this the best sushi in New York City but best I've ever had anywhere.

We were looking for a sushi restaurant outside of the tourist area by Times Square and happened upon Kodama. Staff was very friendly and service was fast. Food was excellent. When they heard it was my son's birthday, they brought ice cream with a Japanese mango desert on the house, sang happy birthday with us. We would go back. It... More

If Kodama is mediocre, I would LOVE to hear where some of these people are going! I have been there 7 or 8 times over the last 5 years, and I am always impressed. The sushi is delicious and fresh. They have classic rolls and maki, and some more "inventive" options. They also have a large selection of noodles, soups,... More

Kodama Sushi does not disappoint. When I'm craving for Japanese Cuisine in Time Square, this is the spot I go to. Great Japanese selection. For those on a budget, try their bento boxes. Fish are fresh and delicious. If you're lucky, you might see Theater Actors dining there too. So look around. I would definitely come back to this restaurant... More

We enjoyed it very much! We had a very good and pleasant dinner with our daughter. We like sushi and our daughter like other kind of food and we could find other things for her. The place is very nice and quiet despite the proximity to the Time Square. The wine was good as well. The price was reasonable for... More

My husband and I ate here for a late lunch. The service was quick, and the food better than I expected. The place looks a little bit run down with portable heaters on the floor (it was the coldest time in NYC in over a decade), but the food and service definitely made up for it. We had the hot...

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
