The food was good. We all got the bento boxes, one with sushi, one with sashimi and the other with teriyaki. Everything was good (I wasn't crazy about the tempura but I seemed to be the exception.) What marred the experience was the waiter trying...More

The place to go if you want great sushi . Nice harmony amongst the staff which was reflected in great teamwork. The food was served and presented in a delicate way. The food tasted delicious. We’ll be back.

Great place for Japanese; sushi, sashimi, sake. I was especially impressed with the sake menu and pairings. Excellent service. Ambience was interesting: clean bright interior, sat at the bar and listened to the incongruous Big Hair Rock playlist, and somehow it worked. Had a great...More

They do not take reservations, so there is a long wait at prime times, so go early for really fabulous Japanese food. Brilliant appetizers and sushi—they also do cooked food, although we did not have any. Crowded, noisy, expensive, but really great food.

We have been here several times. It is usually crowded and cannot make reservation for small parties. However, service is fast , good and line goes fast. Quality of sushi and rolls is super. Try the rice-crispy rolls.

Momoya is by far the best sushi restaurant in NYC!! The fish is always fresh and they make the BEST tuna tortilla appetizer in al of New York hands down (mouth is watering as I write this). Other outstanding dishes here are the yellowtail jalapeño...More

Very good and creative Japanese food in Chelsea. The place was really hopping on Friday night - lots of people, and noisy. The food was great and that's what counts. The service was attentive.

Although the food was good, the host and wait time are not worth it. When they tell you that your table will be ready in 45 minutes and afterwards every fifteen minutes telling you another fifteen more. The host although full could have been a...More

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

I have never in 30 plus visits had an “off” piece of fish. How they manage this is an excellent question.
