    Great service and delicious miso soup for chilly fall nights, although the portions are a tad too small.

    Great maki made with warm rice. Also, if you like beer or sake, come for the drink special on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday night.

    Great breakfast/brunch deal with a ton of food. Pretty authentic and finally, a place that serves some proper natto in south Brooklyn.

    Lots of sake options and melt in your mouth sushi, which is a roll in the menu.

    Go for the sushi for two. You get to pick a special roll with it and it comes with miso soup. That and a dollar green tea each will set you back just 50 bucks.

    Your friendly neighborhood sushi restaurant with a chill vibe. The seared tuna belly roll with avocado is a great combination of flavors.

    The Traditional Breakfast brought me back to Japan. Try it if you've spent time living in Japan or want to embrace traditional food, it's not easy to find! Yaki-salmon, unagi-maki, kinpira, and NATTO!

    Came in for take-out maki lunch special. Haven't eaten yet, but they're playing Aphex Twin, which at least indicates they have good taste in music!

    This is possibly the best Japanese sushi restaurant in Brooklyn. Also, if you're lucky, your waiter might be McGuyver (or Keifer Southerland from Lost Boys).

    This is really the best sushi in all of Brooklyn. It's served the way it should and always go for the Chef special.

    What a GEM! The lunch special is the best bet. If you are feeling adventurous try the fermented tofu (its a little nutty) but if not, the old standards for sushi are excellent, fresh and well priced.

    Try to get ten don if you can, although sometimes the servers will insist it's only on the lunch menu.
