Simply decorated and rather dark, but the food definitely makes up for this. Excellent sushi and sashimi, but also good cooked or grilled dishes. BYOB. Moderately priced.

Try the summer in Hoboken roll, my fav. It is BYOB, which we did, as we sat, chatted and drank after our meal the staff got a little neglectful... More

For appetizers, we had the rock shrimp. With every bit it seemed to get better. We had 6 different rolls that we ordered. Each one was so good with one standing out as the best. It is the something hoboken, i cant remember the exact name, but it was amazing!

Prices were good. Fallen Angel is a must try for spicy tuna lovers. Service was also good considering we came around closing. Would order from here again.

Good Japanese fare. I like their fried rice. Vegetarian sushi seems a no brainer at decent places. Photos and details on my blog. Link in my profile.

I honestly think that this restaurant has one of the best sushi in town. I would say it is on par with what Robongi use to be a while back. The only issue I have with it is the actual dining place (inside the restaurant) - it smells like a toilet. Thats just so wrong on many levels and I... More

We went to with 6 people and the place was super crowded. We waited for 20 mins for table and waited sir another 20 mins for the sushi. Sushi was pretty average. And the waiters lack in English. We ordered beef udon(best entree), tempura combo, and tricolor modly.
