Simplicity is what you find walking in the door, but complexity is what you find in what may be the most simple and humble preparation of Sushi in New York. Chef’s choice of fish is unmatched. I’ve now eaten at all the high end sushi joints here and this, by far, mimics the best of the Tokyo sushi joints. There’s no roll selection, there’s no cute sauces, there’s two simple ingredients: fish and rice. It’s all about the product he has chosen and how he respects the rice. Absolutely sublime and also QUICK as Sushi SHOULD be eaten. 90 minutes start to finish of 18 nigiri pieces. I should add that I was able to add to mine at the end including a tamago piece. Although not as good as Jiro’s, it still was nice to end the meal traditionally. And the miso soup is out of this world. GO. HERE. NOW. if you want a true Tokyo experience without the plane ticket or the insane prices of Ginza!!

Omakase sushi counter with about 10 seats.

Fish is fresh and good nothing bad to say about the food. This is for sushi purest not the crowd that likes fancy’s sauces on their fish.

Service was average.

This was our third visit and it continues to be great. One if the most authentic omakases in NYC. Certainly feel transported to japan. For the quality it is decent value at $135. The only thing I would change, i would start the first sitting at 5.30pm so that we can make the sittings 1h45min instead of 1h30min.

Omakase Room by Tatsu was one of the best dining experiences I've had in NYC. Tatsu-san and his team create such a unique and warm atmosphere. Tatsu's use of local fish makes his omakase selection even more interesting, and all of his pieces were simply stunning. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a unique and personalized sushi experience.

Omakase Room is not only a restaurant, it is a theatrical experience. To be in zen-like surroundings and watching the chef practice his art with such pride is a special experience. The quality of the fish was delicious, and the personal attention my friend and I received from the waiter was impeccable. At $135 for 18 pieces of sushi, the tasting menu is a deal for New York!

Experience was amazing as it was our first omakase in an authentic Sushiya. Food was great as expected, sushis crafted one by one in front of you as per the tradition. The fish selection is also well done.
However, as it was for a special occasion and acknowledged by the manager during reservation, I would have expected a special attention, even though it would have been a bonus and it is always pleasant to receive, the very least would have been to be served by Chef Sekiguchi himself. Instead, we were served by his sous-chef, not a huge difference though and my respect to him but for this "price/excellence class tag", we also expect a special customer care. I guess the frequent customers were privileged that night making us feel like being put in the background. Also for this price tag, you expect perfection for every piece of sushi, unfortunately, one of the pieces was not perfectly crafted and partially disassembled when picking it up.
In sum, experience there is still outstanding in a sense, you need to make reservation very early to guarantee a seat so you crave for it until the d day, there are only 10 seats so it is very intimate in face of what you are used to, the traditional omakase style is something to do at least once in a lifetime. For this time, I did not felt it worthed every penny but I strongly hope it will next time.

The sushi is extremely well prepared with a varied presentation of items that the chef chooses to showcase. I have eaten here a number of times. Each piece of sushi is individually prepared and always fresh. The omakase menu has always been outstanding. The sake choices are excellent. The chef is personable yet reserved. The staff is friendly and helpful. All in all, this is a place to visit time and time again. You will never be disappointed with the experience.

An incredible experience with a wonderful chef. Had the omakase and then a few pieces after. Favorites were the scallop, ikura, eel, and surprisingly, the egg (thats not part of omakase). The place is very small (about a 10 person bar) and quiet which allows you to interact with the chef a bit more and creates a more peaceful atmosphere to eat in. Feels more like a place where you'd go to experience food vs just a trendy place you go to so you can tell your friends about. Great experience and certainly worth the money. Dont be late by the way. The first pieces are served just a few minutes after the seating time starts.

Very good quality sushi with good variety of fish. The preparation was simple - very little sauce highlighting the fish itself. Very small place (maybe 8 seats). Could be uncomfortably quiet for some.

Truly an amazing experience. Chef Tatsu notices everything that happens in his restaurant. He noticed that my Mother wasn't fond of a particular fish and made an adjustment on a later roll. He genuinely cares about your experience.

3 services per evening makes the sushi experience a little expéditive and you might feel part of a Toyota motors assembly line at times. The sushi itself is very good and it remains reasonably priced. Would go again.
