Some of the best sushi in New York City, equal to that of the Tsukiji Fish Market, where we ate back in 2015. Look forward to eating at Sushi Daizen again!

there are much better places with pieces like Wagyu included for only $50 and a better atmosphere. Fish and flavors were underwhelming. Wouldn't suggest.

The finale of the perfectly orchestrated omakase was a fatty tuna hand roll. This handroll changed the way I think about sushi. Go to Sushi Daizen, have the fatty tuna handroll, let it change the way YOU think about sushi.

Pretty good sushi option in the LIC neighborhood. A la carte menu available after omakase if you need to order more pieces.

I was a sushi chef in Japan. Sushi Daizen's chefs are perfect authentic sushi masters I've never seen in US.

We had an amazing meal. The sushi was on point. We ordered the omikase anc a few extra pieces. It was all exquisite. They also have terrific sake (pricey though).

Although dishes were tasty, it’s too expensive and the course was not enough for men.
Actually I’m a quite small eater but it was not enough.
I additionally order tow hand roll with $25 each but it was too small.
We finally spent $300 and realized it’s no worth even though food was nice.

A gem in Long Island City!!! I’m not sure why we didn’t find Sushi Daizen sooner. The Omakase was exceptional and we are definitely going to become regulars. Looking forward to our next meal there.

After 27 minutes of solitary waiting we have left the restaurant. In the 27 minutes we have not seen any server or proposed something while waiting to order. The choice was between 2 menus there was no menu a la carte.

Always love Sushi Daizen. The minimalist chic decor and the sushi that looks simple but is so full of flavor. Super fresh ingredients - everytime I go, I've tried a fish I haven't tried before. This recent visit I tried barracuda! Well-priced omakase. Highly recommend. It's one of my neighborhood favorites. Always sit at the sushi bar!

i thought the food was delicious but definitely left a little hungry. Being that it was omakase it was expensive and they could have given a few extra pieces of sushi and one more handroll.

You simply won't find an omakase with better chefs and fish at a better price. And the sake list is exceptional as well. Total professionals doing it right.
