Our first visit will not be our last. A great discovery, close to Carnegie Hall, Fuji Sushi had excellent special sushi rolls, and a good basic menu selection of Japanese dishes. The service was warm and responsive.

Because we had a service animal with us, the owner told the hostess to sit us in the rear of restaurant. He did this in the language he and hostess spoke, thinking we would not understand. WE DID! This goes against ADA laws! Also, food was bad that was served, and I had to throw away a $13.00 item. My daughter got sick after eating her food.

At first, we struggled to find a restaurant with good reviews close to the Lincoln Center. Most were described as over-priced, mediocre food, poor service. Then up popped Fuji Sushi. It is unpretentious, but gets it done - excellent food, servers always available, no anxiety about being late for the show. Just the job.

We have been going to this restaurant for years, usually before a performance at Carnegie Hall. Food is always very good and the Staff is friendly and attentive. We recently ate there for my mother's 86th birthday and everyone made a huge fuss over her, which she loved.

For a quick, delicious, and affordable meal before a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Fuji Sushi is a good choice. The service is lighting-quick, and the price is right.

Fuji Sushi has good food. We ordered a couple appetizers to share, the rock shrimp tempura and a steamed spinach appetizer.
They had 2 for 1 cocktails however we decided on Sapporo beer, Kirin light and apple juice. For main dishes one friend ordered a couple Sushi rolls and sashshimi.
I ordered the katsu which was a bread ed chicken cutlet with a hoisin or plum tasting sauce sauce on the side. Dessert was the chocolate triangle and an ice cream for the birthday person. We wanted to have good Japanese food to celebrate a friend's birthday at a convenient midtown location and we remembered Fuji Sushi last time that we celebrated. Our one friend orders take out with her group often.

I've ordered from here many times before, and had eaten at the bar. The place is amazing. A step-up from a hole-in-the-wall sushi place, with really good prices. Fish is super-fresh. I haven't had a bad thing off their menu. And the service is so good. Fast and the people there are very sweet.

Light dinner after hot day in Manhattan- found FS near our hotel when looking for an easy, quick meal. Enjoyed all the dishes we ordered, though the pineapple dessert was bland instead of that nice sharp fruit tang. Very pleasant service.

The service is good and very fast so good for anyday. Their eel sashimi piece is amazing (great flavor, perfect cut) and it goes for only $4. They have a nice selection of beers and it's very casual.

We were looking for a sushi restaurant near this location and this popped up on open table. The food was good. The ambiance and decor were okay but nothing special. Not really a very special place but adequate sushi.

They seemed to be under staffed, but other staff stepped in to help. Overall, it did not affect the dinner too much as we made sure to place our order all at once to avoid further delays. Food came out in a timely manner.

Sushi was pretty good, and the sashimi was pretty good quality. Happy hour drinks were cheap, though mine were not as great as I would have liked. Generally pretty good price for decent sushi.

Your run of the mill sushi spot. A massive list of options, the large maki rolls seem to be the best deals. Had the Sushi and Sashimi combo and the types and quality of the fish seemed very fresh. The tempura was really well fried and the oil smelled fresh and not like they'd used the same oil for months. Solid sushi spot.

I love sushi, could eat it every day. Always happy to try out a new place. This place was in the right place, had an opening at the right time. We both enjoyed it. We had rolls of the night special menu. They were tasty, fresh, reasonably priced.

If you are in the mood for good sushi and a wide variety of Japanese food, Fuji Sushi is a great choice. There are quite numerous combinations of sushi rolls and you can also customize them so that your favorite ingredients can be added and your not so favorite subtracted. I loved the shrimp tempura roll. The side salad dressing was tasty and enough to share with another person and it we shared shrimp shumai also. Eating these and our rolls we became full and satisfied. We will have to go back next time and leave room for dessert. The decor of the restaurant was nice as well.
