Thank you for an exquisite experience, Sushi Kaito!

Delicious! The best omikase I've had. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The 12 course would have been fine for me but we did the 16 and it was more than enough food!

As tradition with quality comes to life in Kaito, you feel really special as you sit on the counter and have almost an exclusive customer service.
The fish are always ultra fresh ... the rice is served very fresh and at the right temperature.

This is an excellent omakase place. They really care. And they do clean, focused and very serious work. I’ve been 3 times. And am definitely going back.

Truly a worthwhile omakase experience. From the moment you sit down, it's clear you are partaking in an authentic curated meal which, for the price, is crafted from the finest ingredients. I won't spoil the story, but if you're interested in going, Sushi Kaito is sure to impress - just take a deep breath before the piece with a mint leaf in the middle, you'll thank me later.

Once again Sushi Kaito gave my friends a wonderful dinner! It’s pricey, but it is well worth the money to go there. If you’ve never been there, do yourself a favor and go to revel in this marvelous atmosphere and beautiful sushi!

The sushi was sublime. The chef told us what we were eating and avoided anything I am allergic to. The rest of the staff was attentive but unobtrusive.

Flawless Omakase Dining. Very one on one experience with the chefs working right in front of you. You’ll see how every piece comes together. The fish is very fresh and succulent. Chew slowly. Enjoy each bite like it’s your last. We may never have fish the way we are used to with global warming killing more and more species. I had the 16 pieces and greedy gums asked for 4 extras at the end. Its hard to find great omakase. My favorite is still Akaoni in Carmel, CA. I’ve had Nimblefish in Portland, OR but they slice the fish so thin you can barely taste it. The variety here at Kaito is really top notch. Great intimate sushi bar dining experience. It was exactly what I wanted and the price was right too.

Excellent food but if one spends $120 on dinner, he shouldn't be hungry at the end of the meal.

A standout omakase experience. It is a small and quiet space, so can either be lovely to meet/speak to your other diners, or can be annoying if someone is being too loud. The chefs explain the fish and the preparation, and everything is amazing. Both omakase plans (12 or 16 pieces) include miso soup. A curated sake collection, from reasonable to astronomical. They don't take walk-ins, as plan and prep for each diner is extensive. We love it, as good as any in the city.

Absolutely incredible quality sushi, wonderful attentive service (they even remembered our reservation was for a birthday and gave a free extra piece to the birthday person), and very unique ambiance since the entire restaurant is just the 12 chef's counter seats. $150 for 16-course omakase or $95 for the 12-course is high but a pretty good value compared to other top tier omakase spots.

By far the best omakase shimasu experience in New York City. The sushi chefs are a joy to watch, as the prepare and explain what you're eating. The saki choices (beer as well) are excellent, and the service is impeccable. Sit back savor the flavors of the varied foods your given, you won't be disappointed.

Food and service are excellent. Fish is fresh and delicious. I would suggest that they have 3 seatings rather then different reservation times. It would make for a better flow.

Amazing Omakase and great chef. Must make a reservation as it's omakase only so there is only counter seating. Great value as it is not as expensive as other omakese's in NYC.
