SUSHI KAITO IS THE BEST OMAKASE EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD IN NYC. I WAS SO SICK OF MEAN CHEFS AND INHOSPITABLE SUSHI OMAKASES THAT WERE EXTREMELY OVERRATED AND OVERPRICED. WOULD DEFINITELY REVISIT, I LOVE THIS PLACE! SUSHI IS SO FRESH AND SERVICE IS GREAT.

This was our second dining experience at Sushi Kaito, and loved it as much as our first! Both times we enjoyed the Omakase menu, but now that they have an a la carte menu as well, we look forward to try more deliciously fresh sushi options. They have created a very comfortable outdoor dining experience, and Hiro did an amazing job to ensure we had a phenomenal time there.

This was our first time at sushi kaito. The sushi lived up to its reputation. They have a different menu for outdoor dining that is very reasonable. And they have a great outdoor dining setup. Also, the service was wonderful. We can’t wait to go back.

This is my favorite sushi place in New York. They’ve change the menu and made it more accessible, with more options than before. The sushi is still exquisite. We sat outside; 72nd St. can be kind of busy, so there was some street noise. Service was attentive. Definitely going back more often.

Just reopened for outdoor dining. Prior to COVID, my wife and I would come here at least once a month. As loyal customers, I’m happy to report they did a great job with the covered dining area, heat lamps, and ambience fitting of the restaurant.

Menu has been altered so it’s obviously not a bar side full Omakase experience, but the fish is still top notch and delicious.

I’m excited to have Kaito open again and can happily recommend to anyone looking for amazing authentic Japanese.

This is the best sushi I’ve had in the US. It compares favorably with much of the sushi I have had in Japan. The chefs pay attention to both the look and the taste, and the waitstaff are attentive in just the right measure. Real wasabi is grated fresh, and each piece of sushi is a work of art. There are two price points depending on both the number of pieces and the provenance of the fish. It’s pricey, but definitely worth it.

Absolutely first rate and worth every penny. Fish was delicious and seasoned perfectly. And an excellent assortment. They also have a fine sake selection. They offer three seatings but never felt rushed at the 16 seat sushi bar.

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).

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!!!
