    If you're looking for a healthy, tasty option, I think the perfect meal is a miso soup, a seaweed salad, a few pieces of nigiri sushi, and a beer. Healthy in a reasonable portion size.

    Great local spot for fresh sushi in Chelsea. I like to keep it simple with eel/avocado and spicy tuna rolls with brown rice.

    Edwin is a master. Sit in front of him at the bar and let him select the day's best sushi for you.

    It may sound "Jersey Shore", but try the "Sex on the Beach"'s fantastic. For the record, we're regulars here. From the UWS, good stuff...

    Order the sushi with sweet potato tempura inside and lobster salad outside.It is so odd and good at the same time.

    Slow service! Make sure you have cash handy since they have a $15 minimum for credit cards.
