    That about sums up my lunch experience. The Miso soup and garden salad were fairly plain (but good), but the assortment and the presentation of sushi and sashimi were both very good.

    I've been here many times and have never been disappointed. Possibly best sushi in NJ and the Best Shumai anywhere ! Try the red bean ice cream for dessert.

    Always a great place for some sushi! When you arrive you are greeted with a friendly smile as well as your server. We had the Sushi/Sashimi for two and the presentation was awesome. It can be a bit noisy so I would not consider this a romantic dinner out but if you want GREAT Sushi you have the right spot.

    sushi was excellent except for the blue fin toro which was marginal. apps were nice, the gyoza had a nice texture to it. all and all i'll go again if you live in the area it's worth checking out.

    Don't have much to say, but we had to make a movie and the service was very prompt and the assortment of sushi rolls was very extensive. Everything was very good.

    We have been going to Tsuru for some time now and we are always pleased with the service and the outstanding presentation of the food. On our last visit we were greeted immediately and seated. It took some time for a server to come to our table and take our order. We brought our own Saki and we asked 3 times for a refill and no one returned. Also our tea was not filled in a timely manner. The food and presentation was great but this go around the service was not up to the standards that we have been accustomed to in the past. I guess it's time to find another local place for a while and try at some other point in time.

    Service and the presentation was wonderful. The sushi / sashimi for two is a great dish for that nice evening with your special person. The service is also just perfect.

    We have been going to Tsuru for a number of years now but as of recent we have noticed as significant change in the presentation of the food. It is absolutely outstanding! We have been bringing our friends here and they are always very impressed with the service and the presentations. The wait staff is always very friendly and makes for an enjoyable night out. You will not be disappointed.

    Our group of 2 couples chose Tsuru as a midpoint location between our households that also offered BYOB services. We were extremely pleased with the results. The location offers easy access from Route 78. A positive sign was that all of the employees were Asian. especially the sushi chefs - that's re-assuring! We were seated promptly - the service through the dinner was attentive without being intrusive. After edamame and gyoza appetizers, I had the crispy duck dinner, my wife the sushi and sashimi, and our friends had the sushi deluxe and the steamed flounder. All came with soup, salad and rice and were very reasonably priced. The others enjoyed their meals equally as much - we will be repeat customers in the near future!

    We have eaten Sushi in Japan and the US, but the best Sushi we have had has been at Tsuru. The new chef is fabulous and all the dishes look like a work of art. The hostess always makes you feel at home, and the waiters are attentive and full of personality. The fish is always fresh, and many of the dishes are inventive and unique to Tsuru.
