I was visiting NY with friends and we were looking for a place to eat. Just walked in to have some sushi and didn't have much expectations. However!!! It was one of the greatiest sushi experienses for all of us. I was talking about this restaurant all the time for over a year in my country, last year I was back in NY for a conference and it was the first place I went after arriving at the hotel. Next week I'm coming back to NY, and be sure I'm going to have lots of sushi there. Especially liked "Manhattan roll"....

We dined here pre-theater this past week, at the 9th Ave/43rd st location. So many wonderful restaurants to choose from along 9th ave, but if sushi is what you have in mind- this is a great place. Very fresh fish and reasonably priced. We shared a variety of rolls. The best were the Fox Lady, Shrimp Tempura, and Wasabi rolls. The spider roll (soft shell crab) was overcooked. Service is efficient. Attractive, modern space.

I often look for a place to have casual sushi on the UES for lunch and have been disappointed in a lot of places. I was pleasantly surprised when I was walking on Lexington and saw this new restaurant. I like the menu, its very clean, the new style sashimi is my "go to" sushi lunch. I have been here about 5 times now including takeout. Will continue to go and try other items, some of their sushi "creations" I have not seen anywhere else. Highly recommend.

Nice atmosphere, liked the modern decor. The selection was very good from sushi to cooked entrees. We got appetizers and sushi and all was perfect. The service is prompt.

First sushi in New York and this place was great... We spent USD91 for three people and we were really full afterwards. We had mixture of Sashimi, Sushi and a few other dishes.

Staff was very helpful and atmosphere relaxed. We would definitely go back
