It's all about the fish! Modest digs serving incredible fish. The service was also top notch- personal, friendly, and attentive without being overbearing. Absolutely incredible selection. Good list of sakes. DO NOT MISS!

As an izakaya eatery, there were plenty of items to choose from. The beef tongue was OMG good. The skewers of meat were also well marinated and cooked. The selection of sake was expansive. Some dishes had extraordinarily small portion, ie. asparagus. The service was mindful and friendly. But the seating layout was crammed, hence makes enjoying the food and... More

In Japanese cuisine, robatayaki (炉端焼き, literally "fireside-cooking"), often shortened to just robata, refers to a method of cooking, similar to barbecue, in which items of food on skewers are slow-grilled over hot charcoal and lava stone. I love seafood.... More

This is a wonderful little place for lunch or dinner. It is very clean and comfortable; the lighting is soothing. Not only is the sushi sparkling fresh and beautifully presented, but the service is truly exceptional: unhurried, gracious, thoughtful, attentive and – in the good sense of the word – old-fashioned: green tea refills were given without having to ask...

My husband and I think we are so lucky to have this gem of a Japanese restaurant so close to our home. So fresh! So tasty. I confess to being in a rut when I order as I love their rolls. My husband on the other hand enjoys trying the specials. Have never had a disappointing meal here. The wait... More

If you want sushi, tempura, or sukiyaki, this is the spot for you. We liked this neighborhood spot. Everything was tasty, simply prepared and relatively inexpensive.

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighbourhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
