Diner Reviews
  • "Food was excellent. Might be the best sushi I ever had. Unique combinations. The reservation was at 5 but the place was empty. Looking for something before a 7 PM curtain. Train station from mid town was two blocks away. 6 train from Times Square. Great bar selection. Friendly server. Would definitely go again. Four drinks. Two appetizers. Four special rolls to share. One desert to share. Our total was 109.75. Very satisfied."

  • "Sushi was fresh and flavorful, precisely cut, as good as any I've had outside the places sushi-pilgrims worship. My wife's tempura was excellent. One of my companions had "the best vegetarian udon I've ever had." At this huge restaurant on a crowded Friday night, service was attentive and swift. It's not a special occasion place, though, decor is clean and pleasant but unremarkable."

  • "Enjoyed the pork dumplings and the sushi for 2 here. Unfortunately the service was terrible. After being hurried into a very cramped table not a foot from the tables on each side, our wine order was wrong. We had clearly pointed to and ordered a red wine off the wine special list, but were brought a white wine. When we notified our server, she adamantly defended herself and refused to admit to the miscommunication, saying she had somehow clarified that we wanted a white wine. We left feeling under-served and mistreated throughout the evening."

  • "Kouzan is a very solid sushi restaurant on the UWS, providing consistently fresh and well prepared fish. I have been visiting and ordering delivery from Kouzan for 5+ years and have always been satisfied with the product and customer service. Additionally, the restaurant will supply gluten-free soy sauce, which is important for folks with gluten intolerance, and will cater to customer requests regarding substitutions and sushi/roll preparation. One of the better places for sushi on UWS."

  • "Needed to fine a great place for a hot first date.. Wanted really good sushi and also the ambience was key.. Enjoyed it and agreed with other reviewers that the peanut roll was something special. We got the Sushi/Sashimi for two and was all fab.. Came with two great rolls!"

  • "We've been to Kouzan a few times. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. The service is great, but not smothering."

  • "My husband ordered sushi delux and I had Chirashi sushi. The fish was fresh and very tasty. Miso soup which came with our dishes was also good. It was very satisfying dining experience."

  • "Having just returned from a trip to Japan where we ate the best food, we are now leery of Japanese restaurants in general. We were going to Symphony Space and wanted to eat nearby and Kouzan presented itself. We loved it. Lovely people who are there to cook and serve, mostly young but very caring. Food was delicious. Had spicy scallop hand roll which was excellent, very fresh fist. Then we mostly ate cooked food, a tempura appetizer which was better than standard. My husband had soba noodles with seafood which was loaded with seafood. I had the best thing, broiled eel over rice in a laquer box. Not as great as the eel restaurant we ate in in Tokyo, but very, very, good. We'd go out of our way to go back."

  • "Enjoyed our meals. Wine just OK- tasted a touch stale, maybe? Sashimi was really fresh. Big thumbs up on the seaweed salad. Will go again."

  • "My friend and I were looking for a new sushi place in the neighborhood and decided on Kouzan. We both had the sashimi dinner. The fish was very fresh and portion size was good for the price. Our server was very efficient and pleasant. It's not a place where you say 'oh my g-d I have to go back there again to try xyz', but it was a good alternative for sushi in the neighborhood."
