Easily the best sushi I’ve ever had and one of the four or five best meals I’ve ever had period. I don’t really know how it gets better.

Opted for the 9 course tasting menu. Each nigiri course had at least 2-4 pieces so it definitely added up; we were so full! The specials included sturgeon caviar, monkfish liver (tasted like foie gras), and A5 Miyazaki wagyu. Highly recommend this for a special occasion. Would absolutely return for another visit.

An excellent occasion to dine in such a famous restaurant served by chef Nakazawa the service is of Michelin stars before and during the service. The dishes are prepared one by one according to the taste the freshness and the visualization of objects. We seem to have travelled within a deep sea universe where we could eat what we could in a sea navigator cabin.... amazing. Should eat once or more in our short life as compared to the age of the galaxy

The quality of the sushi is outstanding. Indeed, it’s the best in New York. My sole suggestion is a little coaching for the fine wait staff. They are very attentive, but I would suggest that they try to get to know their clients and the clients’ level of comprehension about sushi. We are cognoscenti and have lived in Japan twice. We have decades of experience. The presentation was for the average New Yorker — the staff treated us as though we knew nothing about sushi. To the contrary, we probably know more than they do. I did not resent the presentation but one of my party did. Sufficient it to say, the staff should inquire whether the guest is new to sushi or very familiar, and tailor the presentation accordingly. This is a rather modest comment. The meal was fabulous.

This is my favorite sushi restaurant in the city! We took our friends who were visiting NYC, since you can’t get amazing sushi like this out side of NYC. It’s in a great area too. Next time I will have to try to do a date night at the bar counter. Thank you always!

The food overall was exceptional but there was a little downside, that’s why I gave only four stars for the food and three for service:

1. The cuttlefish nigiri was overpowered by the shiso leave.
2. We ordered an extra hotate hand roll and a Hokkaido Uni. The brought both out together, so the nori of the handroll was sogi. For the price you pay, I expect them do pay attention to detail.
3. Service was very fast in a bad way, they didn’t took the time to communicate with us. I felt rushed during my omakase. The service don’t go well along the food.

Last but not least, I would recommend to offer a menu explaining the different dining options. It felt like upselling like they present it now.

So overall really good food with a great price value.

I’m from San Francisco and travel to Japan often. When you order Toro, especially at an expensive Sushi restaurant, one would expect to receive a marbled peice of delicious Tuna. Here, you receive what I could only describe as “puree” of Toro on rice - something that they will do in Japan to hide not so fresh Toro cuts that were expensive when purchased. Other fish was chewy and some slices had evidence that they were more than a day old or near frozen for a period of time. I could forgive this at a three star sushi place... but not for this price.
