    Solid basic omakase spot. Lacks the creativity and premium fish of some of its higher end competitors. Good meal but not on the level of many of the other omakase joints in Manhattan

    Fresh sushi. Attentive service. Roughly 14 courses were served on time. Quiet and small inside. Prepared with care and lots of subtle flavors/no heavy sauces/no soy sauce which worked well here. Terrific!

    It was a fantastic! The omakase was very well priced and extremely good. Only 8 people fit in the restaurant making it a very intimate experience. We’ll be recommending to friends and going back for future special occasions.

    1st rate quality fish, mostly from,Japan. Service was very good. We sat in the outdoor hut, if they make it permanent, that could be made a little nicer. All in all, a lovely night out and a place I’d return to!

    The only option is one of two omakase menus, and the fish quality is good, but not so superb as to warrant being the only option. And they clearly know it, given the amount of wasabi and frequent use of the blow torch. That said, the overall amount of food was satisfying. Bottom line: go for a decent meal, but don’t expect to have your mind blown, especially not at these prices.

    First time trying Sushi Kaito. We ordered the 16-course Premium Omakasi $130/person set. The Sushi selection was great, in terms of variety, freshness and presentation. The golden-eye red snapper, madai, chu-toro, au-toro etc were all very delicious. The service was friendly and attentive. Sake selection was a bit limited, but we liked what we ordered, a $100/btl Hakaisan. Since this dinner was to celebrate my wife's birthday, the restaurant staff was kind to prepare a lovely candle-lit desert cake for her. The overall setting/decor seemed a bit aged; our bench seat had some cracks on it. Maybe it was intentionally decorated this way? In summary, this was a great dinning experience!

    Attentive staff and omakase quality was so good! I would be too stuffed if I went for the deluxe but even the classic omakase was very wonderful. I am not a fan of salmon/tuna, even toro, and the chefs took that into consideration when giving me individual sushi pieces. A delectable fantastic experience well worth the money.
