Food was average. I was welcomed by an unpleasant waiter. He did not smile one second even after I tried to smile at him... he was almost despising. The restroom was pretty dirty. I won't go back there.

If you wanna have good Sushi in Downtown and close to 5th Avenue go to Nara Sushi. The Sushi is delicious.

Went with 6 coworkers, all ordered sushi rolls and we shared. I love Bulgogi so I ordered that in a Bento as well. Overall, excellent service and excellent sushi. The Bulgogi was good, but not great. It was inexpensive so I cant really complain too...More
