Great experience at Fuji Sushi! Service was great. We got the Sashimi Deluxe from the dinner menu for $26. It contained 18 pieces of chef’s selection (six types of fish) and was big enough to split with my friend. All six fishes were excellent! Our server even threw in an extra miso soup as we were splitting an entree. The atmosphere is also really cute. Great experience and I will return!

Mediocre at best decor and inside. Not nice at all. Terribly expensive. $20+ for specialty rolls. Food not tasty at all. Maybe an off night. Shrimp tasted frozen. Too much tempura coating on everything.

Always reliable, but learned to avoid the tempura as the batter is always heavier than expected. Plenty of other great choices.

We stopped into Fuji Sushi for a late Sunday lunch. Truth be told we chose it based on fact not many quality Sushi places in midtown open for lunch on Sundays.

We were very pleased with everything ordered. The quality was very fresh. The service friendly. The prices very reasonable. I ordered a martini, it was only $8.00 plus the bartender gave me the extra in another glass! Also a selection of Japanese beer.

If you’re looking for a reasonable Sushi lunch or dinner near Columbus Circle, Central Park, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall check Fuji Sushi out.

We were impressed to learn upon booking that this was the original sushi restaurant in NYC. The menu looked fabulous and made choosing our meal a challenge. However, we each settled upon the combo deal that included salad and three sushi rolls. PERFECT. And the price was even better. We have marked Fuji Sushi for our next visit to town.

Sushi rolls had great flavor, and also were too big. It is not comfortable to open mouth big frequently to eat a bite.

This is a favorite place for us to bring family and friends. Everyone loves the Chef's Choice platters that offer a wide array of sushi and sashimi. Vegans and Vegetarians have many vegetable choices! The avocado and hijiki roll is my vegan favorite!

It was just a “meh” experience. I didn’t like how their chirashi and katsudon are presented: on a dish instead of a bowl. Sushi didn’t seem all too fresh.

We lived in NYand now visit Manhattan a few times. Each year we enjoy exploring new restaurants. However, Fugi Sushi is always a stop. The Sushi is fresh and great. The staff is friendly and efficient. We were dining on a Saturday night and there were 4 chefs to keep things moving. The price/VALUE is very reasonable for NYC.
Plus the mid- town location is convenient.
Definitely a place.to go.

Good value, decent sushi. Do NOT order the hibachi thing unless you want something gloppy with a lot of sauce. Surprisingly noisy for a small place that doesn’t play loud music and wasn’t that crowded. But sushi was fine and fresh. We would go back.
