Excelente elección, la calidad de la comida es muy buena, solo que deben agregar mas personal porque la atención es un poco lenta.

But a new waitress solved the issue

Excellent midtown sushi place with quality food and reasonable prices. The seafood salad was terrific as was the sashimi presentation. 21 pieces for $29 in Manhattan was a nice bargain. Service is very attentive and they do a great job of maintaining Covid protocols

Food just okay. Tempura vegetables mostly potatoes. Maguro sushi not as firm as it should be. Had to ask three times to turn the music down.

I came for dinner with my family and everything was perfect. We got the edamame, vegetable dumplings and vegetable spring rolls as appetizers followed by the shrimp tempura rolls and a couple pieces of the sashimi. Everything was delicious and the prices are great!

This restaurant is amazing in every aspect. Good as excepcional, service was lovely, affordable, cocktails were delicious and half of the price and the happy hour runs til 10pm. We ordered our food and drinks and they served a table of 6 super fast. I highly recommend this place and I can’t wait to be back.

Would recommend this place to anyone that wants some great sushi without paying crazy high prices. They have a lot of great options (lots of non-sushi options too!) and the food is delicious. They also have daily happy hour which consists of half price drinks from 3-10pm. Another plus is it's only half a block from the 53rd and Lexington Street subway station

Great food, excellent, extended happy hour prices, very good service with one exception - my daughter took some of her dinner to go, they boxed it up in a plastic container with a lid sand gave it to her in a bag. While walking back she noticed the bag was dripping - all over her beautiful new dress - the lid had not been put on correctly/tightly. To add insult to injury the bag broke open just as we arrived at her apartment, spilling the contents all over the floor. Maybe take a little more care.

The whole experience was delightful. We were celebrating my husband's 55th birthday which I indicated in the reservation and the restaurant surprised him (and me) with a birthday song and desert. We would definitely go again next time we are in the city.
