    A singular experience. If, like me, omakase is a bucket list meal that you also want to do within a budget, this is the place. Everything was beautiful, balanced, and thought through to perfection.

    Every time I come to Sushi Kaito, I have an incredible experience. The staff is very attentive, the food is incredible, and for the quality of fish, the omakase is completely reasonable. One of my favorite omakase spots in NYC.

    Absolutely incredible spot for omakase. One of the best values I’ve had at that price point. All of the fish was extremely fresh and they had really unique and special fish that you don’t see very often in the US

    This used to be my favorite restaurant in the city. Unfortunately quality has gone downhill. Flavors are no longer there and fish is just more “bland.” Overall poor value for money and will never be returning.

    Poorly executed sushi. This was the worst experience I’ve ever had with a sushi place. I’d match this up with 7-11 sushi. Don’t waste your time this was a horrible experience.

    If you want authentic Sushi and a memorable meal, this place transports you back to Japan. The place is small, with counter service only, yet it adds to the intimacy of your meal. Not only is the ingredients of the highest quality, the chefs are experts at their craft. The presentation is absolutely beautiful, the flavors perfectly balanced. The wait staff are very attentive. I would highly recommend for a true Omakase experience.

    Very simple, small spot with just a 10-seat sushi bar. Superb fish served simply and sparingly, making an elegant 13- or 17-course omakase. The sake list could have been better, but there were a few winners. Overall a great experience, if somewhat overpriced.

    Omikase for $135 pp was overpriced. Good selection of sushi. Nothing was outstanding. They were out of most Saki options. The host and waitress were great, the sushi chef was grumpy and did not want to be bothered to answer our questions about the servings. We didn’t leave unhappy, just was not memorable.

    Sushi Kaito is a quaint, easy to miss, humble omakase on the UWS. The quality of the sushi is superb and there are only about 9 seats so their seats fill up fast. I like that its a smaller setting and it’s much quieter than your usual outing because it’s smaller. I loved my experience here and I would highly recommend Sushi Kaito.
