    We go about once a week. Haru, now RA, is perfect for that regular sushi fix. They are good and reliable, the service is very efficient and the staff friendly as we are now regulars

    We've been coming to this location for years. Then, since COVID - it's been 2 1/2 years since we were there last. In that time, Haru Sushi rebranded as RA Sushi. We booked a table, with a little hesitation as we were not sure what to expect. When we arrived, the host (owner?) greeted us very warmly - "It's great to see you, it's been such a long time!" She had the same table we reserved each time in the past. While there were a few Sushi rolls missing from before, everything was fantastic. Tip - get the Lobster Tacos - you will not regret it. Definitely on our list of favorite places to eat in NYC.

    The sushi was disappointing. The tempura was not fresh. It seemed to have been made some time earlier so it wasn't crispy. The spicy crunchy tuna didn't really taste like much of anything. Time to find another sushi place in UWS.

    Horrible horrible, over priced, terrible ambiance. The old Haru is now owned by a corporate chain and the place is super grim. they also “mistakenly” charged us for two glasses of wine and three beers when we had one glass of wine and two beers. Not hard to get that right. They also couldn’t wait to bus us out and turn over the table. Will never return.

    Good sushi, but a lot of drink items were not available (and no cocktails at this location); definitely fairly high energy and fairly cramped space.

    Love the new interior. My friend and I shared vegetarian sushi entree ( they have more selections of vegetarian sushi) viva Las Vegas roll, chilli ponzu yellowtail roll, salmon avocado roll and crunchy spicy salmon roll. They were fresh and amazing. My favorites are viva Las Vegas and chilli ponzu yellowtail roll.

    The sushi quality was bad. The rice was overcooked and the avocado wasn’t fresh; it had black spots indicating that it had been oxidized. The shrimp tempura had too much fried oil.
