From the team behind RAMEN-SAN, SUSHI-SAN serves up fresh fish with fresher beats. With crispy
handrolls, bincho-tan roasted meats and ice-cold beer; this is not your typical sushi joint. Come in and see for yourself.

Fresh fish. Some unique rolls. Fast service. Rivals some of the better sushi restaurants in NYC. Wish there were more fish/roll options because it was so good!

PHENOMENAL.
The best sushi i have ever had. Ever. Every bite of the meal was to die for.

We started with miso soup. Hands down, the best miso i have ever had. We then had nigiri. The fatty tuna (i forget the "official name" was the best bite of food i have ever had. It melted in my mouth. We then did the kimchi pickles, which were delightfully spicy and crunchy. A seaweed salad, clearly fresh and perfectly seasoned was next. On to the tempura shrimp roll, fantastic. We then had the scallops and wagyu beef. Small portions but. Divine. We ended the night with the matcha butter pancakes, which were more of a souffle of pancake batter. SO. GOOD.

Service was impeccable. Will return.

It was great sushi for the rolls they had! Just not many options and most of it was “spicy” rolls. Which I loved but others wanted more variety. Saki was BOMB. Would recommend!

I come here every once in awhile and I love it. The yuzu sake bombs are THE best so I make everyone I bring here try them. Great music, food and vibe. ✨

We had a good dinner, a good time and good food. The first server we had was so nice and so sweet and she walked us though the menu in details and she made sure our order was right and we didn’t have any allergies. She then told us she won’t be the one taking care of us, but another person will. The second server we had was not as nice as the first one but she handled our small issue very well..The only surprising thing with our food was a bone in the hamachi roll. The manager was very nice and he approached us after I told the server the issue, he offered us dessert and that made our night! I was there before and I had good service and I won’t let this incident stop me from going there. We liked how the manager handled the situation.

We ordered salmon which came out completely raw. We sent the dish back to get it fixed. The salmon came out raw again. At this point, we gave up.

Food was great! Our Nigiri and Maki were very fresh and the sushi rice was cooked perfectly. Cocktails are on the smaller side and a little pricey but overall a great place.

Server took great care of us, and even suggested a couple other places that we ended up going to! Great food. Roasted Edemame was the best ever. The spicy tuna aburi I would order everytime I go back! So good. I would recommend this place to anyone that likes fresh sushi and lively neighborhood atmosphere. Loud but not obnoxious. Great night with friends ot for a date

This was my second visit there and I can say the food is amazing! The hosts were great! I got there a bit earlier for my reservation and I decided to wait on my friend before getting the table. My friend ended up being 30min late and the host were so nice to sit me even tho she wasn’t there yet. Me and my friend shared the nigiri 8pcs, the tempura shrimp, the ginger salmon and the bluefin tuna and avocado, so delicious. Service was ok, with small issues but I guess all was because they were very busy. I will definitely go back and will recommend the place! Sushi lovers, this place is a must!
