Showed up without a reservation on a Tuesday night around 8:00 pm. Restaurant was packed but we were able to get a table for three relatively quickly. Good sake and beer selection, and sushi was very fresh. Great location as I could walk back to my hotel in Union Square. Would definitely recommend to locals and visitors alike.

I took the USD48 premium sushi set, that contained 8 or 10 well executed sushi from rare fish - and enjoyed it a lot! However, I was quite hungry with that. So I also got the hamachi kama, and another sushi set (the regular one) that was not mind blowing. All in all, I spent USD115, tip included, but probably... More

The Sushi at this restaurant is fantastic. We ended up sitting at the bar, which was not our first choice but this is where I would recommend sitting. Watching the Sushi being made added to the overall experience. This restaurant is very busy, recommend making a reservation.

I looked for a Japanese restaurant close to where I was staying and found this awesome restaurant. I had two rolls that were amazing: volcano and dragon. I would absolutely come back.

I visited alone on a Tuesday evening. Busy and bustling, but got right in at the sushi bar. Enjoyed fresh, tasty fish and tempura. I expected the prices, but also expected larger (thicker) pieces in $15 sashimi appetizer. My bill was $47 should've been $37. Yes it's close to Union Square, but not that close. Manage your expectations accordingly and... More
