Looks just like any other sushi restaurant on the surrounding streets or avenues. But incredibly good. In my top five sushi restaurants in NYC. And I eat a lot of sushi. This is sort of a magnet for Japanese people on the upper west side....More

This is my third time here and if it wasn't so far, I would come here more often. This isn't your fancy sushi joint, but it's better than your neighborhood take out spot. For a 12 piece omakase and roll, it'll only run you $50....More

Wonderful little sushi place on the upper west side. We loved everything, but especially the raw tuna and avocado, lobster roll tempura & special spicy salmon rolls. Would definitely recommend.
