    This is definitely a one time experience you must try. My biggest concern was the price is crazy. One glass of wine and sushi for 3 people, (8 pieces each) came to $277.00. That included a $45 tip. When we left the restaurant, we went and got pizza. I was expecting a little more of a dining experience.

    I loved my experience! The chefs were so so nice and accommodating to everyone. The food was great and I definitely was full by the end of the service. The full omakase was a little expensive but you're paying for the experience and location so I would still come back or recommend for a pre show meal!

    4th trip and never a shred of disappointment! My favorite sushi experience every time, and my guests are all now devotees! If you want an amazing omakase' with an absolutely unique experience, you need to let Max and the team at the Times Square location take care of you. I will be back often! Thank You!!

    Our dinner felt rushed and impersonal. We were seated at 5pm and were leaving by 5:40pm. There’s a real opportunity to have made this a wonderful dining experience, with the chef explaining what each course was going to be and talking us through it all as he was making it, but ours was largely silent and seemed annoyed when we did ask questions. The sushi was delicious and the cocktail we had were yummy too. I am disappointed because I had hoped for more of an “experience” with the meal/restaurant, but it felt like an upscale quick service restaurant with a hefty price tag.

    This is one of THE BEST sushi spots I’ve visited. Innovative omakase for a reasonable price. There are only 9-10 seats at the counter and service/eating takes about 30-40 min. It’s a quick, but very special experience. Drinks are great too!

    Super cool vibe. Stumbled upon it on Google whilst looking for a last minute sushi place to take a friend who was in town for a Bday. Had no idea what to expect. A true NY experience. Almost like an exclusive speak easy. Just a small bar that fits like 10 stools with 2 sushi chefs making a prefixed menu. All the sushi was delicious. And yummy cocktail menu. Great place to take a date or a good friend to catch up. Just went back with my same friend that’s in town again. Feels like our own secret spot. You won’t be disappointed. Can’t wait to bring my other friends. Enjoy.

    This was the highlight of our trip to NYC. We are huge sushi lovers and this Omakase experience did not disappoint. We went ahead and messaged the restaurant after our reservation to let them know we wanted the extended menu. Instead of 12 pieces of sushi we got 18 pieces of sushi. Also they had a gift card deal going on for 20% off gift cards so we purchased that prior. Make sure to check their website for other exclusive offers like the Sake2023 code you put into your comments on OpenTable table reservation for free Sake.

    I am visiting from LA and one of my colleagues recommended going there knowing I love sushi. It was a great Omakase experience in a cool space. I was able to get reservations (it has small sushi bar space- room for 8 on one seating) for 1:30. It is quick service and was done eating in 30 minutes. I will definitely go back even I return to NYC in a few months.
