Authentic atmosphere and great menu items...with possibilities for vegan and vegetarian meal...When ordering ask the waitress for description as to size of/amount of food item you are choosing...Some of their portions are very large....

Once again we came to have dinner after almost two years of our last visit to NYC, and this restaurant has the same excellent sushi we had then. Service was good. But the quality of the fish is outstanding.

My family of four went for dinner. The place is small, maybe seats 20-30 people. The service was efficient and friendly. Our food was above average, and the prices are very reasonable. Great option for sushi in Midtown.

Excellent food (sashimi-maki rolls-dessert) but not too expensive. Very good and polite service They did not have wi-fi when we went there but they said that it was a temporary problem with their provider.
