“Still bad and you'll come out smelling like grease”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

If you don't mind all of your clothes and hair smelling like fried food, go here. You'll have to take a shower and wash everything since the ventilation system doesn't take the grease aroma out of the air. The food is not very good either. I only go there because friends like it. I still don't know why. There are so many other places that are better.

“Good Sushi!!”
Reviewed 18 May 2013

We love this place. The sushi is on color coded plates and goes by each table on a conveyor belt. The food is fresh a fairly priced. It is a cool experience to have food coming by on a conveyor belt and just grabbing whatever you want to eat. If you are in the area check it out.

“Same restaurant at 253 W 55th”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

Went to the same restaurant but on W 55th. Good value, good taste, nice atmosphere. Karaoke was playing upstairs so the sound spilled over downstairs, but in a good way. Very good service, plenty to choose from on the menu -- sushi was fresh and plentiful. gzoya was fresh and tasty, and loved the spinach. Sapporo on tap is always good; nice selection of sake. We will definately return.

“Great value and super service”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

The sushi here is very close to superb. Small chain of restaurants in NYC - been there for a long time and the value for money is unbeatable.
