    I'm not sure why the restaurant is named SUteiShi, but the sushi is good. I especially recommend the fusion nigiri sushi. The specialty rolls aren't as good. Service was excellent, and the local ambience is especially appealing in warm weather.

  • Some unique sushi-style ...

    Dined on 5/8/2014
    Everything was either up-to-par or beyond. There were 2 dings, however. I was not happy with the 2 sake pairings - my taste buds just couldn't comprehend this information. One was trying to mimic Jagermeister. I did enjoy the one that I personally picked off the menu. The other ding happened during dessert. We decided to order 2 different desserts & share. Unfortunately, she ordered a caramel chocolate cake and was served a very old & dry chocolate macaroon. Apart from these, everything else was enjoyable. The fried bananas were delicious in a tempura-style. The sushi items were either decent or excellent. Japanese love technology and it comes out in the decor. If you visit, definitely try the salmon tartar & the pear ice tea.

    This is your average sushi spot with relatively unaverage price. Normally a sushi lunch with a 1-2 rolls should cost about 20 dollars. The total bill with no alcohol (it was a work day) and only 3 rolls shared between the two of us came out to just over $65.

    The decor, full window-walls, and service provided a great, trendy environment for lunch. Our waitress was very pleasant; asked the chef to make adjustments (I'm allergic to avocado) and provided service with a smile. This is rare in this city. The sushi was average, but I only had the angelfish roll and edamame, so that is not a fair assessment. The eggplant appetizer was amazing. I would go back again and try some additional rolls!

    I went to SUteiSHIi recently on a double-date and had a lovely time. The server was very attentive and helpful with making recommendations. The restaurant had some actual elbow room (which is not always a given in NY). The noise-level was comfortable (and the music selection, while odd - 90's alt-rock? - was fun and unexpected). It's the the absolute best sushi I've ever eaten or the least expensive, but it was worth the trip!

    While they offer standard sushi, we opted for the fusion options. The menu section called Enjoy was fabulous. The yellowtail with jalapeños was one of our favorites. The fusion rolls that we tried were excellent. A bit pricey but what sushi isn't? I would jump at the chance to return.

The waitress and hostess also suggested the octopus salad and red bean fried ice cream, which were great!

    I'm relatively new to sushi, but my date really likes it, and so we thought we'd try SuteiShi. It was wonderful -- the staff is very friendly and helpful, the rolls (we sampled several) were all excellent (the Jade roll was particularly good), and we had a great time. My sushi expert / date declared it her new favorite place!

    The service was excellent and the food was great! We ordered the tempura, avocado rolls, chicken with ginger teryaki, and these mushroom beef rolls. There was a large group who was being pretty obnoxious. The waiters were very apologetic and made sure we got a table in the second room. I definitely would go back if I lived in New York.

    Easily my favorite sushi place in the city. Sure, it's not in the ultra-high-end class of something like Nobu, but then again it costs a lot less too--not that much more than any generic sushi place, but extraordinarily good every time I go. When it's nice out, they have tables outside with a spectacular view of the Brooklyn Bridge--a great place for a date.
