The Zagat Review
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).

I went for the Omakase, and while it was very good, fish very fresh and tasty, and my Chef very attentive and nice, I observed two issues compared to the better Omakases I have had: - There was no well-defined sense of order that would build up your taste buds, or wind them down towards the end; the sequence of sushi pieces felt pretty random. - It was somewhat too Americanized for my taste; while quite creative, the frequent searing, sauces, grilled tomato, etc. would obfuscate the pure taste of the fish. Some people may prefer this of course. Price was high but then again not as high as those best, highly designed experiences. Then again, I've had "purer", more authentic experiences at this price point in the East village.

I went here on my anniversary dinner and was greeted with kind open arms by the host who had led me to my table. Shortly after I was greeted by my server (did not get his name - what a shame!) who had explained the menu to me. Plum Sake was a must - smooth as water, strong as sake should be, and sweet like plums (of course). Sushi and sashimi was high quality and made with love. Definitely recommend and will be coming back!

Absolutely delicious food! The 911 roll is amazing!! We usually get the 911, popcorn lobster roll, and the baked salmon roll with added cream cheese. Really great! It's our new favorite.
