Very fresh fish expertly prepared in front of us. Servers paid close attention to our needs. We had the 12 piece menu and it was more than enough food.

Ichiban oishi!!!!! Superb fresh sushi & all ingredients. Wasabi for example is freshly ground. Superb traditional Nehon-no service also. A very enjoyable and exceptionally delicious experience worth repeating over & over!

Improvements could be the addition of Shochu and nama beru (tap beru).

A local gem; just wish only us locals new about it since it's quite small and fills up quickly.

Hands-down best sushi experience all around. My husband and I no longer have sushi anywhere else. Aside from the food, everyone there is personable and extremely gracious.

Their sushi is one of the best in Manhattan. The Omakase price INCLUDES tax and tip. I think this is one of the best deals for Omakase in Manhattan. I'm so glad I live nearby.

Went as part of a Christmas gift for my girlfriend. It was not only the best sushi I’ve had in nyc but it’s the best experience. I’m such a small place with only a few seats you got to understand the sushi chef and what they were doing.

Only disappointment was oysters, or lack there of. I guess I can’t complain as it’s omakese but my friend went and LOVED the oyster which I think we had salmon roe instead. Will have to go back to try the oyster

The fish is FRESH but the pieces are not as creative as I would have liked - solid basic omakase - at a good price point ! Again fish is fresh!!!

Best sushi I have had anywhere, hands down. Nobu, Tao and others take note. Fantastic presentation at the sushi bar (only option), options are 12 or 19 pieces, chef’s choice. If you truly enjoy higher end sushi/sashimi, this is a must do

It's truly a hidden gem on the UWS, especially on a part of 72nd street that you wouldn't think of as having good (actually, great) sushi. My mother and I attended on a whim and hoping to discover a new restaurant in our neighborhood. The fish, rice, and preparation were all fantastic. The atmosphere was warm, friendly, and intimate -- while still being vibrant. The only quibble we had was that perhaps there was just a shred too much rice for each piece. While we both had the 12-course omakase, we both thought that having any more rice than that would have been too much. Also, in trying to not be rude/disrespectful to the chef, we both ate all of the rice... I also appreciated how thorough they were with placement of guests (each reservation had its own "card" so you knew where you were sitting) and that they reached out in advance to ask about any allergies or preferences. This is certainly not an every day or casual place, but I can definitely see myself coming back for a special occasion or for when guests are coming in from out of town. An incredible deal, great vibe, and very welcoming staff. Thank you!

I was hoping for more creative sushi pieces as Sushi Gari restaurant or and Sushi Seike. Pieces are mostly plain with sauce on top. But the fish is very fresh.

Overall food was nice but most of the sushi were little too salty for me and my GF. Staffs and chef were very friendly. The chef provided my GF a free piece for birthday celebration. Thank you.

Came here this past week for my wife’s birthday. We’ve been going to more omakase places this year and this place is at the bottom of the list compared to all of the cheaper options like Sushi by bou and sushi by M.

I got the $120-16piece option and she got the $90-12piece. Some pieces tasted good, but overall, it was just underwhelming and nothing really stood out. The oh toro didn’t taste like anything and with the underwhelming sushi pieces you just taste mostly rice. It’s not worth it and I wouldn’t recommend spending your money here.
