vipOpenTable Diner (New York Area)

Food was okay. However, food took 45 minutes to arrive, and EVERY time you wanted anything you had to flag down the waiter. You had to flag down to order, flag down for another drink, flag down for a dessert menu, etc. There were no napkins. Food was good but it was not a good experience unfortunately.

This is our "go to" local Japanese. Friendly, quiet, decent sushi (basic but good value).

If you're looking for fresh sushi, this is a great spot. If you're looking for ambiance, go elsewhere. This is primarily a take-out spot, but if you don't care about ambiance and service, the fish is very fresh and value-priced.

I wanted a quick casual bite of sushi with my family. It was cold in the restaurant -- we asked for heat and they told us it was on. But we ate in our coats. The service was terrible...had to walk to register to get our check. And the food was fair, at best. Additionally, there is literally NO ambience. This was my second time at this restaurant and will definitely be my last.

Understated, friendly, neighborhood spot with very fresh and tasty sushi and sashimi

Food was great and so was the service! They gave us free spring rolls and dessert which was delicious. It's off the beaten path but definitely worth it. Will definitely recommend it to friends and will go back

We were in the neighborhood and walked over after searching "near me" on Open Table. The food was good, but the presentation was lacking. The service was good and the food was good, so I might go back when visiting nearby. They had an excellent selection of sushi rolls available. It might have just been an off night or the chef just isn't big on presentation.

Nice neighborhood sushi option. Rock shrimp appetizer was delicious. We had 4 sushi rolls. They were very good also. Restaurant was very quiet. Service was good. Reasonably priced for UES. We would go again.

We were immediately seated. It turned out reservations weren't necessary at the time we went. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Ordered two entrées---one bento and one yakitori. Generous serving size for the money compared to other NYC establishments we dined at that week. However, both the beef (medium well) and chicken (dry) were overcooked, but still edible. I lamented not choosing a sushi or maki option for the bento because the California rolls that came with it were excellent, but I was in a red meat mood that night. In addition to the California rolls, the side salad with its tasty dressing and tempura were the highlights of the dish. The yakitori was disappointing for using breast meat instead of thighs, and having low-effort unseasoned steamed vegetables as the side. Overall, it was a good dining experience. I'd like to try some of the sushi and maki next time.
