    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!

    Want for nothing if you are into contemporary service with a smile, a bit of Japanese formalities. Polite, efficient and fresh, SR is my absolute favorite place to go for civilized, fun, creatively presented SUSHI
