Bland Atmosphere, Great Sushi 10/17/2007

The atmosphere is boring, but the sushi is consistently good. Lunch prices and specials are amazing for the quality of sushi here. I find it's difficult to find consistently good sushi in the city, especially for less. I have never been disappointed. Pros: Sushi is always fresh and good, prices are fantastic Cons: Drab atmosphere more

Great for Delivery 11/21/2006

I had the opposite experience of the other person who reviewed this restaurant, so that's a little odd. I ordered from here for delivery a few days ago and was pleasantly surprised by how fast it got here. Sushi was fresh and just the right firmness; sashimi was well done with not too much rice and - thank goodness - no lettuce in the rolls. Will definitely order from here again next time I'm craving Japanese. Pros: Fast delivery, rolls done just right and not too rice-heavy more

Nothing worse than sushi that's not fresh 3/26/2006

Went here yesterday for a quick bite to eat and sorely regret it. We ordered Yaki Udon and the Spicy Maki combo. The sushi was not fresh at all and the unfresh taste of stale fish penetrated into the rice. The Yaki Udon was soggy and did not have any pan fry texture at all. To top off this disgusting culinary mistake, they served canned pineapple for dessert. The pineapple had obviously been sitting in an open tin for at least a day because it tasted extremely tinny. This was the worst dining experience I've ever had in the city. I'm surprised this place is still open. I still have a gross fish aftertaste in my mouth. Cons: Bad food more

not good food 12/24/2005

Been there twice -- regretted it both times. The first time I had udon, which was simply bad. I have been to Japan twice and and eat noodles from reputable Japanese restaurants frequently. This barely qualified as "Japanese" food. The second time, I ordered only appetizers, thinking they could not mess those up. I was wrong. Even the miso soup was bad -- seaweed was not properly re-hydrated, the whole thing was way too salty, and they served it with a spoon. The tofu salad consisted of iceberg lettuce, a slice of tomato, and 4 slabs of slimy tofu with a crappy carrot ginger sauce on the side. It looked and tasted bad. To top it off, the spicy tuna roll was simply inedible. It tasted like a sponge. If it were not bad enough already, the tea was lukewarm. I will not make a mistake in going here again. more

hidden gem 11/5/2005

this place looks like your run of the mill sushi place that you see all over new york but they've got a fantastic chef that pull together sushi that will hold it's own against blue ribbon, bond st. etc... My wife and I have been here at least a dozen times and never once been disappointed. Outstanding and orginal sushi at great prices Pros: original menu, great prices more
