Uno de los mejores lugares que he experimentado. Un lugar pequeño y que desde hace años visito.
Todos los sushiman han sido y son excelentes. Y la calidad de la atención es mejor aún.
This place never disappoints.
Low key delicious sushi joint.
Incredibly fresh fish and great attention to detail in the preparation!
The food was superb and the service was excellent. The only issue was the atmosphere, there was a sewer smell/mold on and off, it was uncomfortable.
Decent sushi, but not as good as other well known restaurants such as Nakazawa or Sushi on Jones. Flavors are fine but aren't well balanced compared to other restaurants. Also, expected traditional edomae omakse to be nigiri only, was quite disappointed most of the 180 dollar menu was sashimi - alot of the sashimi pieces especially the toro and fatty tuna wouldve tasted better as a nigiri.
The waitress could not have been more rude. We simply asked for soy sauce with my girlfriend’s sushi roll and they gave us attitude the rest of the night (which subsequently led to me getting in a fight with my girlfriend on her birthday.) All in all I think I will advocate for most people to avoid this restaurant at all costs.
Food quality was top notch but on the pricer side for a few pieces. Granted they were flown in from Japan.
Azabu is an intimate warm restaurant. Attention to customer and detail is wonderful.
Were easily able to accommodate my kosher requirements, and were knowledgeable about it, even on the special menu.
will be back!
Just crazy expensive for no reason. The sushi pieces were priced accordingly but were half the size of most other premium places, and thus, a ripoff.
snobby mean service, at the very least say "hello" when guests enter the restaurant. very below average fish and food quality. i had to turn back the crab - do not order that, worse than any korean deli lunch cafeteria. was this a bodega turned sushi restaurant, it has the shelpppy, dirty feeling.
Sushi was simple and traditional, nothing majorly fancy. If you like fancy sushi, this is not the place for you. This is simple, good, fresh seafood. (I had the omakase with toro tasting.)
We could enjoy not only delicious sushi but also delicious "Otsumami"
Wow, just wow. Had the $150 Taster. Wow loveeee love love love
Food was unreal. Tasting menu was amazing. Small place not much of an ambiance but food out of this world.
My MUST when in NYC. Professional chefs and always a quality meal and treat!
If you are looking for an intimate restaurant with outstanding sushi and service then by all means make a reservation. The meal came with a primer on tuna ordering options as I have never had so many. Great evening here.
Absolutely outstanding in every way. The sushi was incredible. The sake pairing was perfect. What a wonderful dinner with my family.
Best authentic Japanese restaurant in NYC; excellent ingredients; great service.
Hands down Best Culinary Experience I have ever had. Ask for Yasuhiro Tanaka. He did an unbelievable job!
Lovely omakase. All food of highest quality, well and simply presented.
We will return.
Great food. Wonderful flavors. An odd smell of ammonia every time the kitchen doors opened was the only unpleasant part of the experience
Decent sushi, not worth the price tag when you consider all the other options that exceed the quality that have a way better atmosphere and more interesting selections.
Amazing all around!!
Absolutely outstanding with food and service. Tomo, the executive sushi chef, is a master. The staff of Ty, Nancy and Andrew are wonderful. The restaurant is literally and figuratively a hidden gem. Well worth the effort and cost. 5 Star
My second time, and just as wonderful. The food is sublime, the service helpful.
Food was truly excellent, on the level with Nakazawa or Matsuhisa. Sushi and sashimi that make you realize the heights that can be achieved. I found the atmosphere disappointing. My expectation for a small, basement, Japanese restaurant is that it be sort of moody and cool; this place borders on the corporate. There's nothing sexy about it. Service was professional but sort of indifferent. It's pricey. I won't go back. I'd rather spend my money at Nakazawa.
So delisious dishes and service was excellent. However, I got so little for this meal!
High grade sushi! Every dish was perfect. Reminded me being in Japan again.
Ridiculous prices not justified by the quality of the Sushi
Excellent sushi quality. Fish is fresh, staff is friendly, but the wine selection is scant. Small portions for sky high prices.
Great experience. Cheese cake is great but it's too small.
very good service with great UNI tasting. Crab dish was heavenly.
Just about as perfectly executed as possible in that space. I miss their sister restaurant upstairs where it was easier to get in, and the sushi and sashimi remained amazing (and weird non-sushi-eating guests could get noodles or something).
I'm Japanese living in NY. This place is very authentic. You can enjoy beautiful sushi. Waitress wasn't that friendly. It's a bit expensive, but you can't find this kind of food anywhere in NY.
Way overpriced. No sushi rolls. All sashimi at $12-20 per BITE of fish. No joke! I wish I would never have booked at this place. After a $250 bill, we ate at two different pizza places to fill up. We ate nothing all day and what we got here was a huge disappointment
Impeccable service and food quality
Make sure you have reservations for this "underground" sushi gem! Absolutely delicious sushi! Do yourself a favor and ask for the omakase, seated by master Chef Hayashi :-)
