    they have two tiers of omakase here, one of which is a real splurge ($85), but the other one you can kinda justify as a nice night out ($45). and it's all delicious. some of the best sushi in nyc.

    Great omakase for the value. 85$ for 15 pieces and a hand roll. Chef Hideo made my fantasy a reality when he married scallop and uni in one piece 😍. A taste of heaven!

    Want top tier sushi at a great price? Head to Sushi Dojo. Order the 15-piece omakase and hand rolls. They also offers cooked dishes like braised snapper head and soba. Read more

    A great omakase deal, ask to sit with chef David, the owner. Make reservations weeks in advance. He is extremely friendly! Good food, good times!

    Great 15 piece + hand roll omakase. Would come back again, good value relative to other omakases.

    Wanted to come here for the <$100 omakase but boyf insisted on the chef’s choice. Very good stuff, and traditional, small spot. I would say you can get just as good for moderately cheaper

    Besides the omakase, try the uni flight from diff regions of the world and the tuna tartar where the special soy sauce is already mixed in the tuna scramble and pairs perfectly with fried seaweed.

    15 piece omakase for $90 is pretty good in NYC. Great sushi (reminded us of Japan) in a fun environment. We bonded with our chef, Takeshi, over sake.

    12 piece omakase had very fresh fish (with ohtoro and uni), very filling, and great value. I especially liked the wagyu fried rice, which had rice beef flavor but not overpowering the rice.

    I love this place. Food is fantastic and fresh, and he has some new, inventive takes on Japanese dishes. Sushi chefs and service are great. Been three times now, and have consistently been impressed.

    The sushi is definitely solid but the omakase ($90) isn't that big of a steal, price wise. Instead get the deluxe 10 piece sushi for $45 and add a side or two. I loved the tempura

    Great quality, affordable, & laid back atmosphere. Get the omakase! Chef David & female Chef Hiromi gave us a great experience. We will be back for sure!

    Two omakase offerings are only available at the bar, including the $90 chef’s choice of 15 pieces of sushi and a hand roll (there’s also sushi and sashimi for $120).

    Wonderful! Get the omakase sets and let the chef do the deciding! Good quality but small so book ahead of time

    Stay a while, drink lots of sake, and rowdiness will ensue. Omakase is a worth it here—first for the fresh, inventive sushi, second for the fun of it all.

    Three pieces from the omakase that I can't stop thinking about: perfectly seared salmon, scallop and uni, Maine uni. The sake somm is excellent.

    High quality sushi, downtown sensibilities. David knows his sushi, and I have also had wonderful experiences with Hiromi at the bar. If you're here for sushi, go the omakase route.

    Sushi is great. Weird vibes tho, blasting techno and saw all the workers take shots of sake with the customers and the manager walking around promoting sake. lol wuhh

    The 4 types of Uni were the best that night and I usually don't get all Uni gaga. Omakase in 50 minutes at a decent price.

    the $45 omakase is a great value... appetizers are not worth it (tried tuna tartare and pork belly). Ask them to taste some sake!

    Amazing food, amazing ambiance, amazing chefs. Only go if you can handle so much raw fish. I love it, so I loved the place.

    I was skeptical - how well a white dude can make sushi? But David proved me wrong. It is solid. Just go with the omakase. U are in good hands

    Best of VV. Better to sit at the sushi bar and let Bouhadana give you a lesson as he turns out a modestly priced omakase feast.

    Chef David has classical training in Japan and will tailor a wide variety of his fresh fish selection to fit your sushi desires.

    Great sushi and omakase. Easily competes with the sushi's top Japanese restaurants (and at a fraction of the cost).
  • No Leftovers J.
    Great value for Omakase. Changed since the chef left, but the quality is AmAzing and fun spot!

    Do get the omakase, don't get anything on the appetizer menu. Both the uni croquette and shishito peppers were meh

    Masterfully considered and prepared sushi. Will make you want to swim in a pool of uni after this.

    This is one of those "executive" sushi joints. High quality but super pricey and just feels like a place an executive would take a client to impress them.

    Omakase & 90s rave music - interesting combo. If you're serving traditional sushi - it needs to be fresh, Dojo's fish just doesn't cut it. More creativity might help mask the bland tastes

    The fish is fresh & the Tuna tartar is out of this world, but honestly I think I missed what all the hype is about. I don't have any complaints, but perhaps my expectations were a bit high.
