    Sushi is really fresh! Portions are pretty small so not necessarily as much food for what you spend compared to similar Japanese restaurants in the area.

    Excellent sushi , always great service - but should have some nice music - to make the ambiance cozier because it’s like a production line. It would add a lot to have some soft music and would feel less hurried.

    While the quality is very good the sushi portions are quite small, especially given the high prices. Also, the service was perfunctory and I had to keep asking for water and tea refills. In addition we had to wait an unusually long time to be waited on and served, no doubt due to their priority on filling take-out and delivery orders.

    This is the best value sushi-based Japanese restaurant in Manhattan. The menu has a lot of refined choices and is not dominated by mayo based sushi rolls. The quick service makes it an ideal place to go before Lincoln Center.

    Delicious, fresh, generous portions of sushi and sashimi at an unbeatable value. The only down side is that it’s so popular, there was a 20-minute wait for our table, even with a reservation.

    We were in a rush to make a show after a fiasco earlier. We had reservations at 530 but they let us push back to 630, then we got there feeling very antsy about making the show. We let them know we were in a rush and they said not to worry they would get our food out quickly and they absolutely delivered! And not only that, the food was outstanding! We had miso soup, gyoza, and the mini omakese and it was all absolutely delicious. We made it with plenty of time for the show and got to eat a delicious meal before thanks to the amazing service at this restaurant! 10/10

    We selected the Omakase (12 piece) chef's selection. It was delicious. The menu didn't have updated pricing so the selection was a base price plus add-on of three pieces. Total was ~ $65 which was ok given how good the dinner was.
