    One of the worst experiences i had in NYC resturants. Asked if the chef could boil some plain ramen, the waiter said no. Askes if they had toothpicks, they gave us bamboo sticks for sliders, saying this was the only thing they had. The food is mediocre at best, I have much better japanese food, especially sashimi, in Shanghai and tokyo. It was generally overpriced, though the plating was aesthetic. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.

    We love sakamai and have been here a few times! The food, service and ambiance are amazing. The only complaint I have this past dining experience is when we ordered 1 carafe serving size of sake and when we ordered a second carafe serving, we were not offered if we want to upgrade to the bottle as promised at the beginning of the order.
