We dined at the bar and enjoyed great service. We ordered tempura which was --- meh. The sushi that people next to us ordered was beautifully prepared and if it tasted half as good as it looked it was a winner.

One of the best Japanese restaurant in New York, beside the famous Nobu, sushi was great and also the restaurant it reminded me a typical Tokyo sushi place, fish was perfect, the only problem is that is very busy and sometimes you have the feeling that they are rushing to kick you out and give a table to the next...

My son read the TA reviews and insisted we eat here. $200 later we were still very hungry. Servers neglected to bring us water but we were there for just a quick $200 so I guess you must spend more to rate water. I have loved sushi for 40 years, have eaten it in Japan and all over the US.... More

Unbelievable. Like truly the best sushi I've ever eaten and I have been to Japan. The rice literally melts in your mouth and the fish is incredibly flavourful. A little pricey but worth every penny. I would not take a chance on any other New York sushi place and I would just come here.

My airBnB host recommended as it was close by but you need to be prepared to wait. I went @ 2200 but there was still a substantial wait. Staff were helpful and served drinks/snacks on order while I waited. Food excellent as well as service and ambience.

Standard wait time at this sexy spot on Sullivan is uniformly an hour, but it's worth it to have a glass of wine (or two), in the ante-room, unwind and look forward to the amazing meal that awaits. Staff is A++, food is delicious and gorgeously presented. We ate at the bar, which is perfect for 2. Loved the whole... More

This place does not take reservations online or on the phone you have to come in person and put your name down. It's crowded and on the night I visited there was a bit of a nasty smell of bleach in the air. We had the miso soup, it was nice although they bring the miso paste separately asking you... More

Quick dinner at the sushi bar on a busy night without a reservation - sometimes it pays to dine alone! Lovely service, great warm and cosy Soho feeling inside. I had the shrimp dumplings, grilled salmon and a Dragon roll, and all were perfectly cooked with a delightful mix of flavours. It seems slightly on the pricey side, but worth... More

All staff were courteous and efficient, very friendly and comfortable place. Sushi and kitchen food were all good at reasonable price. Like the whole mackerel very much. Will definitely go back.

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
