A word from Fuji Sushi
1954 Fuji Sushi is the First Japanese Restaurant in NY City, one of the firsts in the United States.

Designed with attention to details normally reserved for sculptures, Fuji is elegant without being stodgy. The Japanese Cuisine is so good it lives up to the legend inspiring gallant decor.

You don’t have to travel half way around the world to immerse yourselves in far away cultures. You can partake in Fuji's unique pleasures of creative sushi and a mix of traditional and modern Japanese entrees. This incredibly stylish restaurant, bar and joint set the tone of modern day Zen Ambiance.

Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant smells funky. Food was ok if you expect to get Chinese sushi. "

  • "I was looking for a restaurant near Rose Hall and was tired of the old standbys. I was very pleasantly surprised with my dinner at 'Fuji Sushi. They had an extensive menu with many original rolls. The food was excellent and the presentation outstanding. I look forward to doing back again in the near future."

  • "food was good but service was not really special. the guys making sushi were watching NBA game as well, the guy serving was really unhappy that he has to be at work that day. "

  • "Made a reservation here. The person who served us (she didn't have the skills to warrant being called a waitress) was about the rudest, cold, server I've ever had in the city. And that's saying a lot. She could have cared less about us, our order, not even bothering to check us in for our Open Table reservation (we were listed as a no-show). The food was just OK. The best thing about this place is the price. And that's about all I can say in its favor."

  • "This place is what it is...moderately priced sushi which is not first rate but serviceable. We were able to get a table at short notice, and our order arrived less than 10 minutes after we placed it. Not all of the sushi tasted fresh, but some of it was quite good. A number of reviewers have mentioned that the waitresses hurry guests along, and that was our experience. I suppose in order to turn a profit, they need to keep the tables turning over. Our check for two people, including a few drinks and tip was under $80. For dinner in midtown, with no wait and no hassle, that is a bargain. While it was a bit rushed, it is hard to complain. Nonetheless, if we are in a pinch and want a quick sushi meal in the future, we will keep Fuji in mind."

  • "This might be the worst sushi restaurant I have ever been to. The sushi in packages at grocery stores is way better than the "sushi " at this place. Fish was not fresh, rice way undercooked. A joke. Left most of the food on the plate."

  • "Been here several times because the food is good, the menu is extensive, it's never overly crowded and they are quick. However, the waitresses are a bit curt, but it doesn't outweigh the pros!"

  • "Went here for a pre-theater meal. The service as pleasant and quick. The fish tasted fresh and was well made. It was an early dinner so the restaurant was fairly empty when I got there but became busier as I left. There is a sushi bar, tables and a drink bar so multiple options depending on who you are with or what you want."

  • "The sushi was totally fine and priced accordingly. On the night we ate there, the service was subpar. It was not crowded, yet every time we asked a server for something with one exception, we had to ask a second time (water, more tea,, etc.) before we got it."

  • "A very ordinary looking restaurant but excellent size fish pieces, well presented and very good taste with out breaking the bank. Excellent value for the money"
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "The prix fixe and combo specials are worth ordering. A way to have an excellent dinner without emptying the wallet. Note, the waitresses weren't very helpful with suggestions, so know what you like and stick to it."

  • "Sushi was decent but nothing to write home about. For the price, pretty good."
    Dined on 8/10/2013
  • "Plain tables, plain ambiance but the food is excellent. Sushi is their specialty and worth the trip."
    Dined on 8/3/2013
  • "Sushi was very good. Two of our party shared the "sushi for 2" and had lots of sushi; two others had "sushi jumbo" and "sushi deluxe" and both were pleased with the selection of sushi."

  • "the sushi was excellent and the service too. It is a find in this neighbourhood."

  • "You shouldn't put this at the top of yout list for sushi in Manhattan. It's a stretch to say it was "just ok.""
    Dined on 4/17/2013
  • "Pretty decor inside - I found this on Open Table when I was searching for a restaurant before an 8:00 show. I was impressed because there were many tables available, but the restaurant was decorated nicely, the staff was attentive and friendly. And the sushi was amazing. Fresh tasting, excellent plating, and fast. Highly recommend."

  • "really good sushi (and lots of other options as well!) at decent prices for the area!"

  • "Met here for a 5p meeting, which was a good time. Food, drink available, restaurant was quiet. It did start to fill up about 6:30. Crowd, at least that early, did include families. Will not be disappointing if you're in the neighborhood and want Japanese."

  • "Really yummy and creative sushi. Good prices. Lots of options for sushi and non-sushi lovers alike. Great area and great prices. Will definitely go back!"

  • "The drink specials are women-friendly and easy on the pockets with "buy one get one free" happy hours, and the food is delicious. Super affordable."

  • "Cheap sushi - really nice service, but dead on a saturday night. A little on the depressing side."

  • "Great reasonably priced sushi near Columbus Circle. Would definitely go back if I needed a restaurant in the neighborhood."
    Dined on 7/21/2012
  • "The 2 of us had edamame, vegetable udon, and maki. The drinks were buy one, get one free, and the staff was quick to offer the refills without waiting for us to ask for the special. We shared all of the dishes and the staff was very accommodating about bring extra bowls, plates and serving utensils. We had a leisurely 3-hour dinner and both the food and service were superb."

  • "Tastless and greasy. Totally overpriced for the quality offerred."
    Dined on 6/4/2012
  • "Standard sushi restaurant near Columbus Circle. They gave us free edamame for reserving on OpenTable!"
    Dined on 5/23/2012
  • "The food at Fuji Sushi was excellent. Maki and sashimi were very fresh, pork katsudon was moist and tender. The "extra" of a free edamame for making an Open Table reservation was a nice touch. Service left something to be desired, but this was likely attributable to our waitress only having been on the job for 2 days. Two of our three orders were incorrect and had to be returned: A sashimi platter was delivered as sushi, and a pork katsudon was delivered as plain pork katsu. But the quality of the food once received correctly was excellent, and I would return based on that."
    Dined on 5/17/2012
  • "Sitting at the sushi bar one can't help but notice the disheveled 'storage' area near the kitchen. Server was attentive, but 3-course dinner in 1/2 hour felt slightly rushed. Sushi was mixed; some quite good, some just average. Overall, not as good (or expensive) as Yasuda. Comparable in price to Shumi, which has always been far better. Still, I would probably go there again."
    Dined on 4/19/2012
  • "Mediocre food, unremarkable service. No reason to come back."

  • "Sat at the sushi bar and had the best time speaking with sushi chefs"

  • "The sushi was fresh and the service was outstanding"
    Dined on 4/7/2012
  • "OK food, fresh fish, but nothing out of the ordinary. Is a place to go if on the neighborhood (Columbus Circle), unpretentious and not willing to spend a fortune. In this case, being the first sushi bar in NYC does not say anything."
    Dined on 3/20/2012
  • "I discovered this in Feburary of 2012 and have now already been 5 times and it's only mid March. Each time it is spectacular...I live in San Francisco half-time and I am a regular at Nobu and great sushi places. But if you want fresh, well prepared Sushi and killer rolls, this is your spot. When finished, get the half coconut of coconut sorbet! A perfect ending."

  • "Very disapointing, maybe for quick sushi at lunch but don't waste time or money for dinner. also if you are using opentable double check that they giving you credit."
