    Not only is this some of the best sushi/sashimi in town, but it also yields one of the most authentic Japanese appetizers and entrees. Get the monkfish liver to start and enjoy the omakase meals!

    Consistently high quality, super fresh sushi and sashimi. Fish is equal to top sushi restaurant standards at a good value. I recommend the daily specials and tuna rib appetizer, if it's available.

    Best sushi I ever had! The omokase sushi is worth the extra money. It is out of this world. I've been eating sushi since I was a kid and this place blows away any sushi I have ever eaten. Love it!

    Amazing food/confusing menu. The $35 omakase is solid, but if you're feeling flush, check out the $65-85 'sushi box' omakase or the $140+ 'Super Omakase' hand-served by head chef Nobu at the back bar.

    The Omakase Sushi at Kanoyama's at sake bar counter (not the sushi restaurant section) with chef Nobu changed my view of sushi in NYC. Great sushi exists in NYC! It's not cheap, but not Masa pricey. Read more

    To start, I highly recommend Kusshi and Kumamoto oysters, avocado king crab roll and Black Cod appetizer. Also, you'll never go wrong with omakase.

    The corner East Village eatery, run by laid-back kitchen vets Nobuyuki Shikanai and Daigo Yamaguchi, turns out top-notch nigiri that stands toe-to-toe with some of its pricier counterparts. Read more

    If you're with a large party call in advance for the tuna rib and prepare to scrape it off the bone! P.s. the choice and quality of the oysters and fish from the homeland is phenomenal

    A very affordable and high quality omakase. The fatty tuna with mint is quite good, as is their monkfish liver. We recommend gong with a few people, ordering a ton, and sharing.

    The folks at Kanoyama are a head above the rest, with specials like hamachi carpaccio with yuzu juice and sea salt, sea conch sashimi, and Tasmanian ocean trout.

    Get the omakase sushi. It's $35 and worth every penny. I guarantee you will eat types of fish you've never even heard of.

    Sit at the sushi bar and order the omakase... on the expensive side, but worth it, and you'll be mesmerized watching the sushi chefs create their masterpieces.

    That big tuna thing is real weird. The first round is scrape off the bones - not super filling. Then they deep fry the shit out of it and you munch on the marrow. Fun I guess and not that expensive

    The omakase was awesome and the Gyozas also great. Excellent service. The green tea ice is delicious.

    Sit at the bar and ask for the 'super omakase' (not on the menu). Chef Nobu is wonderful so sit strategically to watch him prepare and discuss the sushi!

    Sushi & Sashimi is great but more recommendable is the Omakase. Soo good!

    Daily specials menu for seasonal add-ons. Omakase for a special night. For crazy, have them bring out those tuna ribs.

    I was disappointed with the $110 chef's tasting menu - while we were getting little soups & weird apps, all the folks around us were getting hand-fed sushi via the $45 mini-tasting. Do that instead.

    Top quality sushi. Ask for their tuna catches of the day. They're fresh and fatty! King salmon is also good!

    From one sake lover to another: if you like dry and smooth (not sweet) - get the hakkasian or the otokoyama. #cantsayno

    Try the exceptional Hamachi kama, probably the best I've ever eaten. It's yellowtail jaw, grilled to moist perfection!
