Sushi Dojo
Japanese joint with cut-rate omakase
Sushi · East Village · $$
The Zagat Review
Though many “miss” founding chef David Bouhadana, this small East Village Japanese is still one of the “best omakase values in NYC” , offering “sublime” sushi made with “fresh” fish at “bang for the buck” pricing; the only downside are “underwhelming” digs.

After reading all the great reviews we were excited to come here. We left disappointed and hungry. Id like to point out that we have been to several omakase before and knew what to expect in terms of prices so this is not a complaint about that. It started when half of the menu was unavailable and with no notice even when I called to make the reservation. The sushi was very small and very expensive (we tried four different types and only one was fresh and tasty). Half of the restaurant looked dirty where the tables were and where we sat looked like it had never been cleaned. The service was ok, the settings and glassware seemed like those at a cheap restaurant. We read that they had lost their head sushi chef a while back and it's evident this restaurant has peaked. Sorry to say we won't go back.

This is the best Japanese food I've had in NYC. Yes, it is not cheap but the price is quite fair for what you pay for. The sushi is high quality and the service is impeccable. The place is small and simple, that type that you would never go if you are a tourist, which I actually love because I'm tired of impressive decorations and average food - and Dojo is the opposite.

UP there with the best sushi in NYC. Everything from the sushi to the sake to the attentive staff felt like absolute perfection. The sake sommelier was also incredibly helpful. He went though various types of sakes with us until we found the one we liked the most. He also introduced us to a "champagne like" sake, which was excellent. There are a ton of sushi places in NYC and I can assure you that Sushi Dojo stands up there with the best of them. It is direct competition to Masa, Shuko, Yasuda, Soto, 15 East or Brushstroke. Highly recommend.
