Best sushi I’ve had in my life. You can taste the ocean it’s so fresh. Good location in Soho. Beautiful presentation of food. I sat at the bar and witnessed such concentration from the chefs as they laid out the food art.

Ok, let's be clear from the outset. I am a frequent traveller to Japan and by Japanese standards this restaurant would be average compared to some of the fabulous quality you can find in Japan. But we're not in Japan, we're in New York. And...More

There is no other place that I would rather go for sushi and sashimi. It's always superb. Attentive service, comfortable seating, great saki choices. Can't ask for anything more. Of course, it's not cheap, but worth it!!
