    This restaurant is beautiful- a surprise from the tiny entry on messy and loud 3rd Ave, don’t let the location dissuade you from going. Food is delicious.

    We went to Sushi Goda for date night and had the premium omakase, which was delicious and entertaining. Both chefs Kubayashi and Danny were informative and fun to talk to. Drinks were great too, I tried the lichee and cucumber martinis and enjoyed both. The restaurant has a nice ambiance, perfect for date night. We would definitely go back.

    We opted for the Omakase counter and I can’t say we were disappointed. The service was excellent and the fish was excellently prepared. The chef prefers a simpler preparation for the fish and it really allowed the flavor of the fish to shine. Worth a visit.

    Highly recommend Sushi Goda for any occasion! I’ve eaten here several times and the food, service, and drinks are consistently fantastic. Best recommendations on food would be the Sake Maki specialty roll and the rock shrimp, but I haven’t had a bad bite here yet.

    This was our second visit to Sushi Goda. Both experiences were outstanding! The menu is unique and everything we ordered was delicious. I tried things that I've never had before (like sushi with raw salmon) and it was surprisingly wonderful and tasty. I recommend Sushi Goda to everyone who is a lover of Japanese food and to those who want to find out why it's so popular.

    The quality of the food was impressive. It’s very expensive so not necessarily your neighborhood sushi place but when you’re looking for some high-quality food, it was really delicious. The yellowtail sashimi tasting starter was $40 and came with six pieces of yellowtail (no rice). And while it was very high-quality it’s going to be expensive to get full The waiter was so helpful in explaining the various dishes and very patient.  There are not many tables, maybe 10, primarily large banquettes, which made it feel pretty calm and open.  We will definitely go there again.

    Just what we needed, an excellent sushi and Omakase restaurant on the Upper Eastside. We have been here twice. Once for the amazing omakase experience, and again for a mid-week sushi dinner. Both were outstanding. The fish is high quality, the service friendly and professional, and the atmosphere inviting. I can't wait to go back.

    Sushi Goda was a great experience, sitting at the counter top having done the premium omakase. The chef told us every piece and gave us a little info on pieces we really seemed to enjoy. There were a few pieces I haven't had before, with some pieces being seasonal fish, which were delicious. They did a complimentary happy birthday dessert for my girlfriend, which was a very nice touch and showed how great the service was. I would recommend anyone to Sushi Goda and definitely will be going back.

    This is by far one of the worst NYC restaurants we've ever been to. I chose it because we wanted sushi, and for some bizarre reason, Goda has 5 stars on here and rave reviews. The portions are beyond skimpy, the food is bland and the prices are outrageous. We had to ask for ginger and soy sauce. It was like a twilight zone episode. No ginger, soy and wasabi?? When we told the waiter we were disappointed, he was very nice, but then said that their food was meant to be "simplistic". So if you like tasteless cuisine, by all means, go to Goda! The bonus was that their napkins left lint all over our pants. You can't make this stuff up LOL.
