    Having this little gem in Astoria is a wonder! Hidden in a section away from the hustle and bustle of the main streets, you can have spectacular sushi and divine cocktails in a quiet yet cute space while not being far from the Steinway Street stop. I highly recommend it!

    our chef was super nice and each piece was flavorful. it really felt like i was being paid attention to, and the entire experience being only $60 is even crazier. I've been to pricier omakase places where i didn't have the same level of experience as I had at Sushi by Bou. would 100% recommend to anyone

    We have been to the one in Times Square before and the ambience wasn’t a great however, the food was good there. Tonight at Astoria, the food was not the best, the rice seemed over cooked or stale as it was very grainy and stuck between my teeth. There was also fruit flies around the food and I killed one that was on my cup. It was just a very mediocre experience both food and environment for us.

    Most of the pieces were torched, would have preferred more raw pieces. Didn't like the smell or taste or the torched pieces which was most of the experience. Raw pieces and hand roll were good, seaweed was nice and crispy. Ordered a round of the house sake, the pours were very small - not worth it

    I’ve heard about Sushi by Bou for quite some time and recently saw they have opened a new spot in Astoria. The quality is not bad for the price, and the sushi chef was friendly and informative. We finished a 12-course plus 2 add-on in 46 min, pretty good bang for the buck ‘fast food’ omakase experience.

    Waaaaaay too loud. I couldn’t speak to my guests sitting next to me and I couldn’t hear the chef explain what dish I was eating. The restaurant is a two part; bar and sushi by bou. There was a dj playing good music at the bar side of it, unfortunately the curtain didn’t block the music to the desired extent making it impossible to have a conversation. Service was great as usual.
