I heard about this new sushi/omakase restaurant through a friend of mine and decided to try it out. I was pleasantly surprised with a great variety of fish and shellfish options as well as a very reasonable price. I believe the sushi/sashimi omakase is $65! Far cheaper than many Manhattan alternatives. I ordered most every fish on the menu to give them all a try and was not disappointed with any. I was especially pleased with the fact that the uni they were serving was from Maine, not California as is so often the case. I highly recommend giving this new sushi spot a try if you are in the neighborhood. I hope they continue to flourish.

Go here now because as word gets out as to how spectacular the place is getting a seat will become a challenge. The food here is hands down the best sushi I've had in Brooklyn and compares quite favorably with any of the Manhattan sushi heavyweights. Their liquor license has come through and their selection of fine sakes, introduced by a very knowledgeable sommelier, will absolutely enhance your meal. I'm absolutely thrilled that a restaurant of this caliber has come to my neighborhood and I look forward to many wonderful meals.

Open barely a month, the word-of-mouth about this Park Slope sushi restaurant has been nothing short of amazing. We've made four visits and leave each visit ecstatic. Sit at the sushi bar and order the omakase. Let Chef Mano guide you through a selection of nine outstanding, often innovative, pieces of sushi and conclude with a filling hand roll. Service is gracious, the setting peaceful. Why do guests leave Katsuei smiling? You'll want to experience it yourself.

We stumbled into Sushi Katsuei by chance, since we were actually headed to another restaurant. But the place looked so much like a scene out of Japan that it peaked out interest.

It was a cold night and we were looking for something warm to eat, but sadly the noodles had been taken off the menu..that was our only disappointment. However, everything we ordered was delicious. We started with the mushroom soup - a broth wit a really good body, tofu piece, silky enoki mushrooms, and a mellow and earthy flavor; and the Kinoko (mushroom) starter, which was PERFECT - sautéed enoki mushrooms deliciously seasoned in butter, soy, and garlic. If you are a mushroom fan you MUST try it.

For the main course, we had the salmon teriaky - which came with rice, potatoes (nothing to write home about) and broccoli. All the ingredients were good quality and the salmon was lightly sweet and medium well done, which is good if that is how you like it (we prefer it to be slightly less well done). We also ordered the sushi deluxe (10 pieces + a roll) -the fish was consistently fresh and delicious, and the roll was very good, not too much rice, or vinegar, consistent and yummy.

The service was great; the server was friendly and ready to help us with any questions or requests, and he kept our tea cups filled with perfect green tea.

The atmosphere should not deter you from eating here - no real decor, very bright lights, and the air conditioning was on even though it is winter...which made it seem a bit cold...but if you focus on the food you will not be disappointed.
