I had eaten here only twice in the past and was not impressed with either the size or the quality. However, lately, I've found the food to be fresh and generous. I've now gone back 3 times in the last 2 weeks. The rolls are bursting with fish and not overloaded with rice. The futomaki, which I don't order because... More

This place is a delightful hangout for many members of the Riverdale community. A friendly bartender serves cheerful regulars with great Manhattans and Lychee martinis in a small corner bar. Later in the evening, it's a couple's hangout. My favorite time is from 5pm to 7pm, when families with small children come in for lovely meals with great service. I... More

We always stop here on our way to New England. Delicious rolls and salads, can always get a table for lunch right away, easy to find street parking within a block or two, in a cute and friendly neighborhood, and super nice service. We always eat way way way too much and will do it again next time too.

Very good sushi and good service. Fresh food, good array of choices. Miso soup is delicious. I haven't eaten a ton of sushi over the years but have had enough to know that this place is really quite good. Cocktails are also really delicious - the lychee martini is especially tasty. Riverdale does not have a lot of really good... More

We went here hoping to find a sushi spot that was comparable to some of the restaurants in Manhattan that we usually frequent. This place was mindblowing! The service was spot on from the moment we walked in until our exit. The servers were very attentive, prompt, and knowledgeable about the menu. I am currently pregnant and the server recommended...

Our Chrsitmas Day visit was our 3rd (my mom lives nearby) and the first thing that hits you is the service, from the welcoming hostess to the efficient wait-staff. It's unmatched. The food is brought prmptly and they keep the tables clean as you move from course to course. The food, while not authentic Japanese, is good and portions tend... More

This is my first dinner out everytime I come to New York. I love the place, the food is delicious and my first dinner is always a Dinner Box which costs $23 and it is a complete meal which makes me happy. The service is always very good and they always recognise me even if I am in New York... More

Lived in the area for years and had never been to this reataurant. When I finally went I wondered why. The food is flavorful. Gorgeous decor. Good service. Dim place, FYI. Worth the bite to eat.
