If this isn't the best Japanese food in Brooklyn I'm....guilty of overstatement. Try the house-made tofu (I like the agadashi), banzai (small plates), pressed sushi. Great value at lunch.
Best sushi in the neighborhood
The rice in the rolls is So Good!
Exceptional. You can't go wrong. However, precision in ordering is crucial as portions are smaller.
The best oshizushi (box sushi) you're likely to find in New York, interestingly some of them utilizes raw fish (traditionally it's cured or cooked only); get that and start with a few daily obanzais!
A gem in the neighborhood! Authentic Japanese food in a cozy space. Try the obanzai and soy milk pudding. Miso-marinated salmon was incredibly delicious!
The ice cream sandwhich made out of pancakes!!
Homemade tofu was awesome. Save room for the homemade tofu pudding for dessert, it's amazing!
Pro tip: they don't do delivery themselves, but you can order from Postmates
Everything is good. Tofu, soy pudding, miso soup
You can't beat the 10$ lunch obento box... Too good to miss
Visa & Mastercard accepted, $15 minimum.
I always come here when I want to relax, have a good meal and good conversation. Lunch specials are a good value.
One of the best Japanese spots in the city. The menu is not extensive, but the food is outstanding. ❤️ the Chicken Teriyaki, the Hibino Chicken, Lobster Tempura Roll and Shrimp Sushi, really delicious
I can't say enough good things about this place. Incredible food, great service and not too pricey. Massive fan.
Always try some Obanzai.
Any kind of tofu. Also, the branzini.
Excellent authentic Japanese fare. Don't miss the deep fried tofu and the seaweed salad to start, and later the mackerel Kyoto boxed roll is delicious.
Good sushi overall. Tofu was amazing so fresh and creamy tasting. Nice place for a date. Friendly staff.
Tofu is meant to be like they serve it forget what you thought you knew about tofu. Try it warm with broth. Sushi is fresh and authentic. Try the box sushi for something different.
Great daily specials for $5 and ask for recommendations in the daily catch! Ice cream sandwiches are a fun take on traditional Japanese pancakes
Really a special, cozy Kyoto-style sushi restaurant. I recommend going off-menu for the daily-special sushi, sashimi, rolls, and most importantly, Obanzai (not to be missed)
Yep, this shit is good. Do the tofu cold. Not a tofu guy in general but its special here. Then get whatever the hell is on the chalkboard and shut your mouth.
Soy custard so good
Great tofu. Specials are awesome.
The sushi is amazing! For desert they have a soy pudim that is priceless
Wow. Hard to come by good sashimi in Brooklyn, let alone Manhattan. This place is so good. Also great space.
Excellent lunch specials that are not that expensive
It's a good sign when you eat at a Japanese restaurant and it's filled with guys who look like ninjas.
Salmon Box was great and the fresh tofu (warm, or cold) was delicious. Best part was the sushi having subtle rice vinegar in the rice, just like grandma used to make. You don't get that very often.
Love the Kyoto style sushi, great experience. Gets crowded quick, so get in there early to avoid a wait.
The Obanzai (Kyoto-style Japanese Tapas) changes daily but has never disappointed us! Neither has the Agadashi Tofu, Shrimp Toji Maki, or the Beef Kakuni! (Walk-ins Only)
I like the sashimi plate
Super authentic Japanese food. Their sushi is incredible but make sure you go for the unique Japanese dishes (fresh made tofu and shrimp toji maki)
Lunch specials are awesome and not that expensive
Homemade tofu and dashi ftw
Everything is great here! Get the fresh-made tofu, seaweed salad, hako sushi, Kyoto-style futomaki, and any specials of the day!
Delicious fresh made tofu in cute tiny bottles
Japanese small plates, daily twists on traditional miso soups and sushi, and a cult-loved in-house tofu recipe.
Happy to have this in the hood. Kakuni tasted more like Japanese demi-glace but was delicious all the same. Rolls were perfect. Green salad was actually exciting, not the afterthought it so often is.
Food ok. Service was slow. Fish was fresh
Homemade tofu is superp ~~
This comfy spot is as close to authentic Kyoto-style as you can get. Daily obanzai (tapas) is a must; the chirashi — a heaping bowl of sashimi, veggies, omelet, and rice — is one of the best around.
I loved both the Salmon and Tuna Hako! Can't go wrong with any of the Hako.
Tasty tuna tataki salad!
Fresh tofu, seaweed salad, super fun chirashi! Really nice place, pleasant.
Seaweed salad is really light, fresh, and flavorful. Service is great, but that is typical of pretty much all Japanese restaurants. I will be coming back to try their lunch special.
There's nothing like finishing off the best sushi you've ever had with a pancake ice cream sandwich.
Order the house made tofu cold and any of the hako pressed sushi varieties available. Personal favorites are the salmon and the unago.
