“Excellent discovery”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

One of our best discovery in NY. Everything was excellent: a rare hidden gem in NY. Something maybe was a little bit expensive but i suggest it without any doubt.

“Fantastic food, drink and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

My boyfriend and I wanted to try this place at the recommendation of friends. Went to a show at Lincoln Center and then headed here. I love how it's tucked out of the way and the decor was amazing. Loved the sake vat bathrooms. We tried at least 5 of the different hot and cold dishes and all were delicious. Unfortunately we both were feeling under the weather and couldn't stay as long as we wanted to. We tried the sake at the waitresses recommendation - he loved it and ordered more but I guess I'm just not a sake person at this stage :) Will definitely go back and stay longer!

“Have You Tried Sakagura's New Lunch Kiosk?”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

On the first floor of the same building where Sakagura is, a soft opening of a kiosk opened up. They have about four bento take outs which are made at Sakagura. I had the fish bento and it was quite good. It's on the right of the elevator and a guard will ask where you are going but just tell him you are going to the kiosk. It is a small place but compared to the bentos at other places, I enjoyed this one though the selections are limited. Haven't tried the restaurant but deciding whether to try this place or next door Soba Toto.

“Unusual Japanese cuisine... feels authentic and is delicious”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

We had a great time. We sampled so many things and they weren't the usual boring fare so many restaurants put out. This place has delicious and unusual Japanese food. You have to try it. We had the tasting menu... it was great!

“Basic lunch place”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Sakagura is a favourite for midtown Japanese food foodies. Its not expensive at lunch, good value and authentic. I usually take the cooked food rather than the raw, and a favourite is the seaweed salad, the tempura and the eel rice. The daily specials come with soba noodles hot or cold.I went with two guest fro a broad and they enjoyed the food but we were ushered out bruskly because we took too long to eat. Its a fast in and out place so avloid it unless its a fast lunch.
