    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!

    This dining experience was personalized and delightfully bespoke. The chef and waiter/manager were both simultaneously attentive and non-invasive. And the sushi was extremely delicious, tender, delicate, and flavorful. Highly recommended.

    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.

    While our party thoroughly enjoyed our meal, we wished we were able to have conversed with our chef more closely. Additionally, the omakase flavors were very traditional and we hoped that there would have been a variety of different flavors/modern take on it.

    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.

    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.
