The place looks very run down , I was almost going to leave when I saw that but my friend insisted we should stay since she had eaten there. To my surprise all the different sushis we ordered where very good and tasted very fresh,...I must say I enjoyed it very much , the service was good maybe since we were the only once there. I think there bussiness is only on take out orders, I will certainly go back there againMore

Small restaurant, really good lunch specials for $10-11 including several rolls, Miso soup and edamame. The fish was fresh and the combo luch a great deal. Service was slow however and the place was empty!

We passed by this restaurant during our stay in NY in March 2016, without knowing if it was good or not and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! Friendly staff, good service. Delicious sushis! Great value for money! The sushis (and...mochi ice cream) were so good that we actually returned two more times that week!More

The sushi, soup & salads are always fresh and tasty. I have never had a negative experience. Mostly we do Carry Out but have eaten inside with the same great esperience.

I ordered the lunch chicken teriyaki bento box. The soup, salad and gyoza were good. It all ended when I got to the actual chicken portion of the dish. It was hard as a rock, absolutely disgusting and I couldn't even eat it. I can't...even to begin to think about why- chicken isn't supposed to be hard. There are plenty of other Japanese places in the area- I would suggest checking them out instead.More

This is my go to neighborhood sushi lunch spot for a $ 11.95 tasting lunch with miso soup, salad, dumplings, rice, California roll, and entree (Tempura or Salmon or Chicken or Negamaki). Pleasant staff too.

Atami Japanese Restaurant appears to be a pleasant place, but I needed to finish a report and decided to try a take out order from Amazon using an Amazon Prime account. That went quite well -- the charges included the tip, and the order took...only 47 minutes -- we are about seven blocks from the restaurant. The food -- not so good. The hot and sour soup was very bland and I had to add quite a bit of mustard to give it some bite. The mushrooms in the mushroom soup were excellent, but the broth had virtually no flavor and much too much salt. The standard sushi package was really subpar -- the tuna was mushy, the rice flaccid, the other fish a bit past their prime. Never again.More

This is my go to place for quick take out sushi since i live in the neighborhood; generally i get the sushi or sashimi special. It's been consistently good food and good value. It's nice to have a trustworthy option like that.

I've been eating at and ordering from Atami for years. The have really solid sushi and are pretty quick for delivery. My personal favorite preparations that they do are the Tri-Color Sushi and also individual pieces of baby yellowtail sushi which they do with jalapeno...on top. The restaurant is small but cozy and the service is spot on. If you're in the neighborhood and looking for a quality Japanese meal I would encourage you to try Atami.More
