    This was one of the most irrelevant omakase style dinner we had. First of all Omakase style is served at counter only which is right but that means having a dedicated chef and space. We had dinner practically IN THE KITCHEN, totally abandoned for almost the first hour because they were serving/prepping food for the entire restaurant. While the “chef” arrived to serve us only was super fast, 15 pieces in a row one after one, the finishing touch of every pieces in terms of sauce, lemon zest, was very redundant, made in a rush, without the nice manners, style and dedication a proper Omakase style required, specially at that price! I will not for sure come back, this place is nothing comparing to the several ones more than better than this NYC could offer you.

    Ryusei is a very good mid-level Japanese restaurant. Their versatile menu can accommodate a wide variety of tastes from a simple combination plate to omakase sushi. Fish was fresh and had lots of flavor. Great choice for a Japanese meal at midtown East.

    Thoroughly enjoyed a lovely evening at Sushi Ryusei. The service was impeccable, as was the sushi and sake. I’ve been living outside of NYC for a few years now, so it was a treat being able to sit down for super fresh sushi, prepared by Japanese chefs. Thank you too for my birthday ice cream mochi surprise!

    Was looking for a highly rated sushi restaurant in the Murray Hill area to go out for dinner and accommodate a gluten free friend. The calamari salad was delicious along with the swishing peppers for starters. Really enjoyed the salmon avocado and spicy tuna roll. The fatty tuna scallion roll was okay. The service was attentive and covid protocols were in place. Can't wait to return for dine in or will order take out soon.

    Could not be more impressed with Sushi Ryusei. We’ve tried almost every sushi place in NYC over our past 50 years here and it’s still difficult to find a little gem that isn’t bad takeout or have a queue of kids or food bloggers because someone mentioned it on TikTok. This place has ambience, great service, and amazing food. Will definitely be back many times in future.

    My husband and daughter went for her 15th birthday. She wanted to go back to the restaurant after trying it during Fashion Week in September. She noticed that the service wasn’t as attentive as our first visit. She did enjoy the birthday cake with a candle.
