    the sashimi and green tea ice cream was TO DIE FOR. service was fantastic,all the yelling was so much fun. at the robata counter, chef serves you with a loooong paddle.

    Go for dinner at around 8pm for free entertainment. Take turns pounding mochi (which you get to eat as a free dessert afterwards!!). Sit at the grill for a more fun time and order the signature drink.

    It's not pricy -amazingly because it's really close to Time Square-. The deal of the three rolls is the best. You get 18 rolls for only $25 bucks. The servers need to improve a little bit.

    Awesome show, loud and rowdy but really cool spot for those interesting after work business meals. And of course, food and service were flawless.

    A+ for experience and presentation and the food is pretty good. I love how they serve you as you sit down around the table. It's a bit like theater and benihana.

    Great place for sushi and sake. Very friendly staff. And I love the Japanese greeting you receive when you enter the restaurant.

    The Robata is really nice. They had a special with Brussels sprouts and seaweed: gorgeous. It's not the same feel as in Tokyo but definitely enjoyable.

    Amazing authentic Japanese experience. Sushi is amazing and well I don't know anywhere else you can find an atmosphere like this one. Higley recommend.

    Great food at a reasonable price (which includes some fun entertainment). The Kaiseki menu hits the spot. Also, make sure to check out the restroom.

    Pricey, but decent food. Got kobe skewers and asparagus and sweet potato robata. Its only 2 skewers for $32! Go if you have a corporate card otherwise, not worth the $

    Consider eating at the sushi bar, which is always active and gives you a view of the chefs. Make note: This place is usually closed Sundays.

    After you’ve had your fill of Robata – get the Kinki and the Wagyu Skewers, you have to pay a visit to the restroom. It’s amazing.

    Loved the Shrimp Avocado Tempura Roll + Spicy Mayo. Chicken Thigh Skewers were good/ok.

  • Aaron Christopher C.

    Expensive, tourist oriented, loud, limited menu. But quality fish. For more variety and bang for your buck, walk to Haru on 42 St and Bway

    Aaron Christopher Cohen · July 7, 2010

    Take the family, sit at the bar. You'll find the sushi to be just above ok. Effusively friendly and fun place.

    I love the way the chef's serve patrons at the counter by placing dishes on long poles.
