The last affordable sushi on conveyor belt is gone... been closed since 4SEP2016. I was looking forward to dinner on the street level, followed by karaoke upstairs after dinner. Sadly, we had to settle for Japanese dinner elsewhere.

Unfortunitely, this spot has lost their lease and their last day is Sept 4 2016. Japanese East is an experience that is not common at sushi restaurants in NYC. The bustling atmosphere is accented by the conveyor belt that winds its way around the big bar area and the tables. And if you want something other, there is a multi... More

Really wanted to experience conveyor belt sushi. Decent food, well-priced,but unfortunately it's closing in a few weeks so staff didn't seem to be making much of an effort.

Always a polite welcome here! Staff is quick, efficient and very honest! Meaning if they mess up your order (for instance serving you 4 makis instead of 3 makis) then your dish is still delicious but it's free! You have a theme every day, "Sushi Thursday" or "Teryaki Monday"... Wether you order from the rolling bar or from the kitchen,... More

It's one of the few remaining venues in New York City that still operates a conveyor belt sushi restaurant. Mondays and Tuesdays are best days to go because of their specially priced theme nights. Don't expect much from waitstaff beyond beverages. It's pretty much self-serve unless you want warm food from the kitchen. Best part about this venue is that... More

Good menu and on Sunday when we went there were offers on shrimp. They have different offers each day. Service was good. Really good value. We paid $30 dollars for the 2 of us.

This is a fun sushi restaurant where you can go for a solo meal or with friends and not "miss a beat"! This restaurant uses a conveyer belt to showcase their small sushi dishes so it's exciting to watch the sushi roll by while you think about what to eat next. The dishes are color coded based on the price.... More

I went here for the late-night happy hour, which featured half-price sushi (I think this promotion may be ending at the end of January, but not positive). The staff was incredibly nice and very attentive. The sushi was reasonably priced (even before factoring in the happy hour special) and high quality. There was a wide variety of sushi being served,... More

They have a variety of sushi on the conveyor belt and their a la carte menu is excellent. The service can be average to good depending on who's serving you. There's a karaoke bar upstairs. I had the butter clams which were delicious.

I've been coming here for years, and while the prices have gone up, it still remains the best "bang for your buck" sushi in Manhattan. Good quality (not great), and a BIG menu. Have never had anything suck here, but if you are expecting top quality, this in NOT your place. Eat a lot and be happy :) Love the... More
