What an amazing meal! This was our second time here and it was wonderful. Our server Ellen was the best and after we asked about he chef she brought him out to meet us.
Chef Brian was so nice and spoke to us about his dishes and how he came up with them. He then sent out a dessert for us on the house.
We can't wait to go back. The food was delicious.

The second time I've been
The second time I've been here and it was even better than the first. Great food, wonderful cocktails and great ambiance. The Angry Lobster roll and the TNT roll were two of my favorites. A definite great new neighborhood find.

Recently went to Mira with a group of 10 people, and they were very accommodating. The food was really good, especially the spicy tuna pizza. I would definitely go back with a large or small group.

Decided to try Mira Sushi
Decided to try Mira Sushi with friends to celebrate a birthday. Our waitress was so nice. She was very helpful with our selections and everything was on point. Because their address came up wrong and it directed a surprise member of our party to Brooklyn, and he did not make it to the restaurant until we were having dessert, we were comped for a round of drinks and the dessert! They did not have to, but it was very nice. Will go back!

Fantastic little place (found it on Yelp) the sushi was AMAZING (I got something called Miso Over Yu that was REALLY good) and very attentive wait staff. Loads of interesting cocktails too. Plenty of things to eat if you aren't into anything raw as well.

Solid and diversified Japanese menu
This is a great neighborhood spot with friendly and attentive service and a well-executed and interesting menu, beyond the standard sushi spot.

Any night of the week
Great place to go any night of the week. Food is good - was skeptical about the spicy tuna pizza but glad I tried it. Overall, good place to go with friends or someone. Great ambiance - not too loud or quiet. Perfect neighborhood joint

Worth a visit
Party of two for lunch. We ordered four dishes and three small bottles of cold sake, which, including tip, came to $80.
Of the four items, three of the four were successful.
Spicy Tuna Pizza - Crispy roti, guacamole, masago, kani, furikake flakes: very decadent, perfect for sharing for two.
Kyoto Crunchy Sloppy Joe - kurobuta ground pork, sour mustard, Hawaiian bun: Came three to an order - yummo.
Hamachi Jalapeño - yellowtail sashimi, yuzu chili oil: Best dish of the four. Delicious.
Salmon Poké - salmon sashimi, avocado, togarashi, sweet aioli: Suffered from excessive aioli, which overwhelmed in texture and taste the dish. Our server: poor communicator, lacked knowledge of the preparation and ingredients in the dishes.

an oasis of pan-asian goodness
Located in the flatiron in an intimate space not large but also not too small, my first dining experience at Mira Sushi was memorable for all the right reasons.. The service was extremely friendly and helpful and marked by well-spaced inquiries as to how my date and i were doing. The food -was amazing.. both the sushi and the cooked aspects of the menu were extremely well prepared, presented beautifully, and tasted wonderfully making for a heady mix. This was accentuated by a wide range of quality sake (our choice) as well other beverages and cocktails. Its a testament to how pleasant the experience was that several hours passed without realization of the time.. Hope to see Mira Sushi and Izakaya Bar around for a very very long time.

Amazing Korean-Japanese fusion
Every dish was so delicious that I have to return to try all the other items on the menu.

The special rolls I had were a little too sweet, but other than that they were really great!
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time customer, so didn't know what to expect. Was pleasantly surprised. Fish was extremely fresh - sashimi platter was amazing. Creative appetizers - jalapeño hamachi is a must try. Service was excellent, suggestions for sake pairing was spot on. Will definitely go back.

Asian Fusion Party for your belly!
The dishes are so unique and what you have come to know as "traditional" Asian dishes have been interpreted into a mouth watering experience! The sushi is outrageous (Head Sushi Chef is from Nobu!) - while the non-sushi dishes make you go, "wow!" after every darn bite, I normally don't write reviews but this experience had to be shared. I highly recommend the Kobe beef on the hot stone!

Great food, disappointing service
After getting the minimal service all night, my husband tipped appropriately based on our experience (between just under 15%). The waitress then came back over and pointed to the bottom of the check at one of the recommended gratuity options (17% and above) and left the check back with us. Since we were with friends, he just changed it to the smallest "recommended" amount to avoid a scene. The place was not busy at all, we were only a party of four, yet we were barely tended too once we got our food. We thought it was rude for the waitress to come back and point out a different tip.

Great Food, Okay Service
Food: Great! We started off with the spicy tuna pizza and the sea salt edamame. The edamame was your usual fanfare but the pizza was absolutely delicious (though a little messy). We then ordered a classic spicy salmon roll, crispy rice sushi roll, malibu bay roll and hawaiian roll. These were all great choices and I think the only real disappointment was the hawaiian roll.
Service: Service was great at first! However, after about an hour our waitress kept coming back to the table to "check on" us. Even though the restaurant was half empty it seemed as though she was trying to rush us out.
Overall: Great place to go for dinner. The neighborhood is great and the atmosphere of the restaurant was really awesome.

Trendy, Great for Families
Mira Sushi is a great place. The ambviance is trendy, and the food is excellent. It offers a variety of Japanese appetizers, which are great for sharing. I went there for a family dinner on a Saturday night: wait staff is very friendly, food arrived quickly, unique cocktail menu. I would recommend the green tea tirimasu for dessert.

The sushi was so fresh!! We went very early so no one was there on a Saturday at 4pm.

Fantastic food, but check your bill
The food was fantastic! We ended up sampling things from all over the menu and one thing was more delicious than the next. They have a full bar, so you can have fun cocktails or more traditional sake or beer. Atmosphere was fun--not loud when we were there, but energetic, and the restaurant was preparing for open mic (would love to see that!). The ONLY negative I have about this is that they automatically charged us 20% tip for a group of 5 (usually for 6 or more) so when the bill arrived and we split the check, we all ended up double-tipping. I don't think they should do that for a normal sized party, and if they do, the waitress should announce that.

Proof of Reservation
When we arrived the hostess said they could not seat us because we did not have a reservation through OPEN TABLE. I had to go online with my cell phone to prove we had made the reservation. After that confusion was settled, we had a lovely dinner.

Such great sushi! It is such a great quality at a very reasonable price, especially by NYC standards. Very nice dining room with friendly and attentive service.

They are very accommodating for gluten allergies! They are well aware of difference sauces, etc. and they bring you the gluten free soy sauce! The food was fresh and delicious. They have some very creative rolls!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The fish was extremely fresh and tasty, the honey yuzu wings and the octopus special were delicious and there was a good selection of sake. The prices were great for the food quality. Overall a great experience; I will certainly be returning.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ordered grilled asparagus, shrimp & pepper yakitori, octopus balls-a special & a crazy lobster sushi roll. Everything was very tasty washed down with sake & Sapporo. We went late-9:30 to take advantage of the 1,000 points and it was packed, mostly twenty & thirty somethings. We were seated a few minutes after our reservation time. An enjoyable experience, we will be back.

Excellent Japanese Compromise
The products used for the dishes are really excellent for a restaurant of that class. Prices are quite reasonnable for the quality offered at the end. I would really recommend this restaurant to all sushi fans! Salmon Poké and Combo Sashimi & Sushi were just outstanding!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh sushi and rolls (some unique flavor sets). Decent service and decor. Probably one of the better sushi places in the Chelsea area. I'd return.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely one of the best sushi restaurants in NYC and I've been to many. The service was superb...the waitress was attentive and really knew the choices. Great recommendations. Some unusual menu items that did not disappoint. The fish was fresh...the taste was a 10. I will go back and back and back to get my fill of some of the best sushi around.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
great food, very noisy
Would recommend MIra as the food was great and inventive. Noise level was extreme, though, so don'y go if you're looking for an intimate, romantic dinner.

Amazing food and very friendly
Amazing food and very friendly staff. This place is incredibly underrated and well deserving of its high Zagat scores. Try the tuna pizza and the pork with rice cakes.

Great, fresh sushi. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices.

Great spicy tuna pizza!
Food was great, notables were the spicy wonton, spicy tuna pizza and angry lobster roll.
The skewers are good too, they are perfect individual servings.
Less than a 5 min wait for our reservation, service was very excellent.
The place is not large and was quite busy, little loud.
Definitely will be one of my "go to" spots for sushi and fusion.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
I wasn't sure what to expect from this restaurant, because the reviews were all over the place. I can honestly say that I was pleasantly surprised by the food and the service. The only downside to this place is that it gets REALLY loud in there. So, if you want to have an intimate dinner where you can talk to each other, it might not be the best place.

The food was good and the place was happening. It is a very young group vibe. The food was good for the prices they were charging.

It’s an excellent sushi restaurant
It’s an excellent sushi restaurant in an area which needed it. No need to go any place else after finding this place. The appetizers are inventive, the fish is fresh, the prices are reasonable. No complaints.
5 stars, it’s my new favorite sushi in Manhattan.

Good food and nice atmosphere
I made a reservation after reading the reviews saying Mira has pretty good food. We ordered seaweed salad and togarashi fries, along with the sushi set, along with eel, wild blue crab, and scallop sushi. Even though the fries were slightly soggy for some reason, the sushi certainly didn't disappoint. We should've opted to sit inside rather than near the bar area since the door kept opening so it was quite cold. We enjoyed it so will certainly come back next time we have another craving for sushi.
