Renowned for its “extraordinary” omakase showcasing “beyond-fresh” fish, this “spendy” Japanese mini-chain slices “spot-on” sushi that’s “lovely to behold” ; though the settings can feel “somewhat lacking in charm” , the bi-level Hell’s Kitchen flagship has “significantly better” decor plus a “fancy” whiskey bar (Chelsea also boasts a whiskey bar).

My review for this place was based on service, not necessarily the sushi. Sushi was fresh, sashimi decent, BUT the manager or the Owner as he referred to himself made this an incredibly terrible experience. Was arrogant, rude and had absolutely no customer service skills. Place is not cheap, and I expect great service when eating at such a pricey sushi restaurant. We came with a party of 6, and had reservations for 9pm on a Sat night. We were seated at 9:41pm, our order was taken at 10:10pm. Our waiter needed help so this so called "manager" assisted but argued about everything that was questioned, refused to make any changes and was talking back when confronted. Would never recommend this place, nor will I ever go there again.

A lot more inventive than most of not all sushi restaurants that I’ve ever been to. Beautifully fresh, wonderfully inspired and super original. One of those places that when you leave you don’t feel hideously full, just perfectly satisfied.

Oh my dear G-d, this NYC Sushi Restaurant should literally teach the others how to properly make Sushi! Their omakase is perfection. From fatty tuna, to tofu, spicy tuna hand rolls (with delicious sesame seed oil) and finally, to the torched tomato with salmon. Wish is extremely fresh and delicious! I would recommend sitting at the bar and calling in advance for a reservation. The restaurant is small and does not have a rich feeling, but the food is the reason you go.
