Like the Philly roll, hamburger curry rice bowl, tuna roll, fire roll - just say it is all good. Little hole-in-the-wall place with good service and fair prices, especially for NYC.

We were in search of something other than pizza and fried food at the end of a vacation in the US and this lovely, simple, local Japanese diner really hit the spot. Sushi, teriyaki salmon, tempura and several starters were all delicious and the choice...More

We go here often as it's across the street from the apartment. Always friendly service and tasty food at a very fair, New York City price. The Philly roll and sweet potato roll are always good.

That this restaurant is across the street from our apartment makes it an easy choice to consider, and the all-around quality makes it easy to revisit. We had edamame ($4.50), ebi shumai ($6) for appetizers, and Alaska roll, Philly roll, spicy scallop roll, and fire...More

This restaurant has sushi and many Japanese dishes. If you are looking for a wide range of sushi this is not your place. They have a sushi menu containing many choices, but not the variety of a strictly sushi restaurant. The place is small and...More

In all honesty we've visited this restaurant several times but always for 'To Go' orders. They have onigiri (rice balls) on the menu which is rare. Last night we decided to eat in as we have an out of town visitor with us. What a...More
