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).

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.

3 stars is not a knock, it represents that this is solid sushi. We did omikase, and it had some excellent pieces along with a few misses...all in all pretty good though pricey. If you’re fortunate to have eaten true 5 star sushi you would never confuse this for that. Service was good.

Great service, chef is attentive and modifies speed at which you get your sushi based on how fast you're eating. Fish is very fresh, rice has perfect consistency and seaweed is nice and crispy.
