Not horrible, but we certainly are not going back. The menu is VERY limited and the quality of our two dinners were nothing we would order again. Have worked in Tokyo, as well as having regularly eaten at terrific Japanese restaurants in the US and...More

Not an expert and maybe I just ordered the wrong thing? I sat at the front bar and there was a small group (3) at the far end. Clearly they knew what they were doing and their dinner was much more impressive than mine. The...More

We were so hungry so we just walked in the first restaurant we saw, in this case - the somewhat hidden - Azusa. We were definitely not dissapointed. Compared to other restaurants in NY it was a very quiet place to eat and to escape...More

As usual, the shrimp shumai was excellent as well as the array of fried skewers of eggplant and shiitake mushrooms. The sashimi is fresh and the portions are large. Order fresh, sweet pineapple as dessert - great way to end a delicious meal.

We found this great sushi restaurant by chance, when we were walking on the 44th Street. After taking a quick look at the menu, we went in. And we felt so lucky to have found this place. All staff seemed to be Japanese, which really...More

Taken here for lunch by a friend. It was busy and we were the only westerners in the place which I saw as a good sign. We all had the set lunch for $20 which we all thoroughly enjoyed.
