This popular Chelsea neighborhood spot is worth a visit if you are looking for fresh, expertly made sushi. For dinner, try to arrive before 7 pm otherwise you may be facing a long wait for a table. Our waiter was efficient and unobtrusive. Decor is unremarkable, modern, clean and uncluttered. We started with the delicious wakame (seaweed) and cucumber salad.... More

Once again the crispy rice role was amazing. I could easily get addicted. Good selection of fish on the sushi sashimi combo. Always fresh.

As a sushi lover, this was a great find. Tasty sushi and sashimi & the staff was very nice! We couldn't make a reservation, but we put our name on the list. Result: when we came back after 30 minutes, we got a table almost instantly, despite the long queue! Loved that night :)

Great meal. one of my new favorites. We did the tasting menu and were able to modify 10 pieces to 5, 2 of each. Everything was amazing. I have to say my favorite was the Crispy rice and the tuna belly. I already can't wait to go back.

I feel like the best experience I had at Momoya was alone, went I sat at the counter to see the chefs preparing sushi in front of you. Such an art and they make it look so easy. The food is stunning and extremely fresh. My favourites are the crispy lobster roll and the black sesame ice cream and the... More

Fresh creative sushi. Crispy rice roll a must. Very minimalist space, small but good vibe. Servers are professional, friendly and sincere. Quick service but not rushed. There's always a line at the door for good reason. Don't miss. Bring your wallet because you'll need it

They don't take reservations but it's well worth the wait. Definitely get the Crispy Rice Rolls and Black Dynamite Rolls. Soooo yummy! Order as a hot appetizer the Edamame. Amazing venue. Amazing service. Incredible food!! My favorite Japanese place in NYC. Highly recommended. Open hours every day 12:00-14:30 & 17:30-22:30

I was looking for a place to eat and I noticed how packed this restaurant was: a good sign that the food is good. I propped myself up at the bar and ordered the 8 piece sushi platter with 6 tuna rolls. It was ever so fresh and tasty I left a very happy customer.

Particularly loved the Risotto that a single dish was the food highlight of our week in New York. The busy hum of this place surrounded by fantastic contemporary modern decor and very attentive staff combined with the wonderfully fresh and beautifully presented food to make this a great evening out for us. The best part was that we just walked... More

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
