Do not go. We have been to many high end restaurants in NY (11 Madison, Per Se, Daniel, Bouley, etc.), so believe me when I say that the price was beyond ridiculous for what we got for Omakase. We went there last night looking for...More

Only sushi and sashimi. Do not ask this man to put anything in a rice bowl. Do not go for the California rolls (named Kuruma rolls.) This is the best sushi in NYC, which is why you'll find a very simple small dining area full...More
