“Local knowledge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

Great, innovative Japanese in Chelsea. Food was absolutely delicious. We visited on a Monday evening, and the restaurant was packed. Service courteous and efficient.

“Consistently good for years”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

When we are in the mood for good sushi and want to celebrate a special occasion we often head to Momoya. It is a great neighborhood spot in Chelsea. The service is always good, the sushi fresh, and have never left the table unsatisfied. Some of the ceviche dishes are a little small for the price, but go for the sushi/sashimi tasting menu for 2 and you will not be hungry. We have visited this restaurant a few times per year since it opened and have rarely been disappointed. You will wait for a table (no reservations) and it is not a quiet place, but it is well worth the wait and the noise. If you can't stand waiting about 20 minutes for a table (your entire party must be there to be seated) and want to try out this fantastic restaurant, go for lunch when they have lunch specials! Very cute place and typically cute (both male and female) waiters.

“Excellent sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

Momoya is our neighborhood sushi spot. We've walked by it for years and always wanted to give it a try so finally got to it. Their Salmon Crunchy Roll was excellent! The Eel Don was a large portion. It was good but a little heavy on the sweet sauce. Will definitely be back.

Vibey ambiance, excellent sushi and great experience. Can be a little loud and may be busy due to popularity. Well worth it as the quality of the sushi is worth it.
