I must say this is my favorite Japanese dinner spot in this area. The sashimi is always fresh! Try the chirashi for sashimi lovers -it's very filling. They also serve mochi for dessert. Yum!

Quite varied menu, with some traditional Japanese choices that are often missing from Japanese restaurants in the US. Great service, very efficient at lunch time despite full house. Nothing mind blowing, but nothing disappointing either.

Been here many times and never disappointed. Love to sit in the tatami room. Sushi is fresh and delicious. And great non-fish options too, for my daughters.

Lunch today. Giant clam, ocean trout, uni, live scallop, and a spicy yellowtail hand roll. What could be better? Great cold saki does the trick! Have found nowhere better in NYC.

I went here for a dinner as it's close to the hotel I'm staying in. The place is run by Chinese, not Japanese. I ordered sushi/sashimi combo. The quality was ok, not top s well as the variety and size if the cuts. Overall ok,...More
