“Good, simple Japanese meal”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

We enjoyed our meal. The fixed menu makes it easy to order, and every dish was well prepared and high quality, but not "exotic". The preparations were simple and highlighted the quality of the food.

“Very inventive yet traditional”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

This is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC. The chef is a great guy, the serivce, so friendly. And the food! Go very hungry and get the kobe beef dinner, which is effectively two dinners in one: a sashimi and sushi dinner, followed by a beef dinner. They have a rice dish wrapped in banana leaf that is a must. The tuna liver is incredible. And they have a whiskey gel dish that simply must be tasted to be believed. Really one of the best places in the country.

“Great japanese food, excellent presentation”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

I rarely enjoy eating alone but the food here was so good one tends to forget that one is alone and the presentation of the food makes it a treat to one's senses. Ate there everyday I was in New York. MUST GO.

Very authentic and delicious Japanese kaiseki food restaurant with good service and cozy atmosphere. Reasonable price for the quality of the kaiseki course menu. Private room on the corner is even suitable for business dinner.
