    The sushi & sashimi special for 3 is more than enough for 4 people. Quality and quantity!

    Great sushi. Get the sushi for one and split it with two. Dumplings were also delicious

    Mediocre sushi and insanely crowded. Pay the extra bucks and head a few blocks over to Sushi Dojo.

    Not really what I expected after all the hype, fish to rice ration on rolls was very low. Hamachi Kama app was great but overall I was not impressed with quality of fish or their size

    Hamachi Kama appetizer was delicious, sushi rolls are pretty skimp with the fish. Too much rice.

    Good pricewise but it leads to a very long wait for both table and food. It's also extremely loud; I felt my voice going as I chatted whilst waiting for my dinner to arrive.

    Sushi is good, but what's the point? There's a giant crowd to get in just, mainly people from Long Island. You either come here to be seen, or see someone from B-school

    Very reasonably priced and good sushi/sashimi! Order the "Sushi for two!" It is a huge platter of sushi and sashimi and is enough for four people! The only con is that the wines are not good.
