    From 5 to 7 every day $21.50 gets you miso soup, a salad, 4 appetizers, 4 skewers, a sushi roll, 3 nigiri pieces, a scoop of ice cream, and hot tea. One of the best deals in the East Village.

    My new go-to sushi spot. The fish is so fresh and for the price, it's unbelievable. The sea urchin hand roll, baby yellowtail, and salmon are all to die for. Also, jack is the man!!

    their chirashi is especially fresh and excellent. salmon, mackerel, and fluke are usually the best quality. best sushi for value and quality in the EV.

    My go-to sushi spot in the East Village. Sit at the sushi bar and chat with Jack, the chef. He's hilarious and the high quality + unique sushi here is an amazing bang for your buck.

    Sushi and sashimi combo for two is a great deal at $48 and you will leave full and happy. Still my favorite sushi spot in the hood.

    Best sushi in the area. No reservations so come early or be happy to wait. Great sashimi dinner and plenty of sake options without the obnoxious crowd. Don't miss the beautiful artwork!

    My favorite affordable neighborhood sushi spot. Salmon sashimi is amazing. All of the rolls are good as is the rock shrimp tempura, crab shumai and shisito pepper skewers!

    this place is amazing, not that expensive, and is authentically Japanese. being Japanese myself, I appreciate when I can find good Japanese food, which is sadly a rarity, even in New York. go here.

    Love the Kinuta Maki (eel and avocado wrapped in cucumber). We actually get all of our sushi without rice and it's fantastic!

    The fish is super fresh. But the real secret is the udon. The broth is too good! I suggest the simple Yasai Udon to compliment you sushi.

    Measly portions but it's pretty damn delicious. Try the broiled fish!! Soft and melts in the mouth!

    The sashimi platter was huge! Great quality and not expensive for what you're getting, it's not surprising this place is always busy.

    First time in life I have been asked that I didn't leave exactly 18% as a tip. So I had to add few bucks extra. I think it's inappropriate to ask your clients for extra money.

    While the sushi was delicious, something in the way it was prepared affected my friend's shellfish allergy.

    It's not bad food but honestly it should be a 7 not a 9. Overall too salty and saucy, more fit for American tastes. Salmon sashimi was thin and not fresh. Recommend una don and scallop, uni sushi.

    The black cod was a great appetizer. The sushi was pretty good, but next time I would go for their other dishes as those seemed more interesting.
