Great Japanese food in the midst of Manhattan. Quick, friendly service, delicious food and reasonably priced for sushi.

The food was beautiful and great value for money! This was a very last minute booking and I must say it was a great place to spend the evening especially with a happy hour for $6 cocktails!

Nothing really special about this place. Food was just OK. Service was fine but the front of the restaurant looked tired and in need of a makeover. With so many other Sushi places to choose from there is no need to go back. Also the sushi portions were smaller than every other place I have been.

Had a friend in town on business and we picked Gu because it was near her hotel and we were craving sushi. It was probably one of the best dining decisions I've made so far in 2019. The food was delicious, the service was abnormally fast (I swear we got our salads within 45 seconds of ordering them), and the prices were surprisingly reasonable for the location. Will definitely go back!

Everything about Gu was exactly as expected. The food was awesome, the restaurant was cozy, the service was great. The ONLY reason I gave this place 4/5 stars is because of some minor differences in the bill compared to what was on the menu - for example, the menu price for soft drinks for the kids was $1.50, but the bill reflected $2 per drink. Also, the webpage advertises happy hour for cocktails from 3:30-10, but we were charged the menu price for all of the drinks. The food, service and ambiance were all excellent and the drink prices weren't worth arguing over. We would definitely return when back in NY.

Crowded enough that it's fun and quiet enough to have a conversation (at lunch). Sushi is better than decent. Have been there a few times and have enjoyed each time. Booth seating is best if you can get it. Sushi is clean.

The food was more than disappointing. The miso soup was serviceable. The steamed vegetable dumplings had an oily filling and arrived hot on the bottom, dry and rubbery on the top. The veggie rolls were made with unseasoned rice and were so poorly constructed that they looked like my own attempts at homemade ones. You know, with the seaweed coming unwrapped and the rice spilling out all over. That said, the service was attentive. They do have brown rice on request (though it is not on the menu.) On the whole I cannot recommend it unless you are just looking for a place to drink alcohol with some Japanese ambiance.
