    Everything we had was delicious, and the size of the pieces of fish in my sushi were quite generous. Service was professional but perfunctory, the waitress dropped our check off after we declined dessert and never returned to see if we'd changed our minds or to fill our water glasses. It was busy & noisy but not too noisy for conversation, although I think that depends on the crowd. I would go back.

    My daughter and I went together and she was thrilled to be able to get a bento box for her dinner. She has been to Japan several times and considered the food and presentation very authentic. I had a cooked shrimp entree. I don't think I have ever had shrimp that were more seriously over cooked. I think sticking to sushi and cold dishes might be the way to go.

    This place is a fast food sushi restaurant with no appeal at all. Service is unattentive with a smile, restaurant is grimy. Waiter staff dont know saki list. We were badly mis-led by reviews. would never go back. Wish these types of places didnt exist.

    We were looking for a lively sushi place in Hell's Kitchen and when a friend recommended Ageha we decided to give it a try. It was a big success! Our group of 6 ordered about 10 different things and passed them around the table. The food was innovative and delicious. The décor is beautiful too. We'll definitely be going back soon.

    The specialty rolls were outstanding. Ate there during the week for lunch. Very hot and air condition wasn't on right away. Things got better later and maybe dinner would be better choice.

    The sushi seemed reasonably fresh, although the pieces were too large. (I know that seems an odd thing to criticize, but the size threw off the balance of the sushi pieces and made them difficult to eat.) Overall, the food was tasty, so I will probably be back.

    Dined on 6/24/2014
    The service was reasonably good and my husband enjoyed his sushi. Neither of us liked the Roasted Oysters because the panko crust was too heavy and there was also an off taste to the oysters. I don't mean the oysters were not fresh. It had to do with the preparation. I had a Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura. I expect tempura to be a lightly battered and quickly cooked dish, but the panko crust was way too heavy and thick. Not our kind of place.

    This is a fabulous neighborhood find particularly if you are interested in pre theatre sushi that is creative, fresh and well priced (good sushi is not inexpensive.) and within a short walk to the major Broadway theaters. One member of our group was not a sushi/sashimi eater and ordered the sesame chicken which was very nicely presented and delicious as well. The sushi and sashimi was great, beautifully presented and the portions were very generously sized. The service was excellent and extremely efficient in making sure we did not feel rushed but still cognizant of the fact that we were headed to a show.

    I set up a reservation via OpenTable and got right in. The service was quick but a little pushy to get us out on a Friday night. However, the food was very good. I shared the spider roll, vegetable roll and chicken fried rice. The chicken fried rice was excellent. I would definitely go back here again.

    It was quiet, quick and delicious! We thought we made a mistake booking here since there were only a few other people eating, but we were pleasantly surprised by how yummy the rolls were. My favorite of the night: the happy mango. So yummy, and everything was tied together with their green tea. I work at the world wide plaza so I'll definitely be back!

    Needed to plan a group dinner for a friend's birthday. Fit the bill as it was good for groups, within the budget, took reservations and had a spot open when I needed it. Drinks relatively cheap. We were seated right a way. Waitress was attentive, food was as expected, and we were not rushed. If i needed to book a group reservation for sushi, I would def go again. No negative suprises

    We were looking for sushi close to Pier 94 on New Years Eve to have a quick bite and head out for the festivities. Ageha was the perfect spot. Food was very good and fresh, came quickly, good selection. The place is SMALL but fit us without issue even with a very big party already seated. This was exactly what we were looking for for a pre New Years meal with friends.

    Ageha is a small place, so it can get a bit noisy. But the sushi is reliably good and reasonably priced. My server was efficient and friendly, but didn't bug or up-sell me on anything. The fish tasted fresh and they had no difficulty getting my order right. I'll go back when I'm next in New York.

    Dinner here was unexpectedly nice. Going here was pretty impulsive and I was pleasantly surprised by the taste and quality of the food and drinks. Service was a little slow, but it wasn't anything that was off-putting. The noise was a little much and we had to lean closely to talk with each other.

    We were pleasantly surprised by Ageha. The food, service and ambience were excellent. Three of us chose a Bento Box and there was enough food and the quality was very good. The Miso soup was extremely tasty. I had the Shrimp Tempura and it was nicely prepared, along with the dumplings, and an interesting salad. The server was attentive, but not in the way. The décor was interesting. Even though we live in Staten Island, we're thinking about making this a regular spot. Definitely, when we're in for a show.
