    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!!

    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.

    As the only decent Japanese food in the on avenue A. And walking distance from my apartment! The spider roll is great! Spicy tuna, not so much.

    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!

    Great rolls for reasonable price. Avoid sitting at the bar near the hostess unless you want to dodge plates coming at your head left & right

    Excellent Sushi. I had the Sushi Dinner and added a Tiger Roll (which was a special); perfect for a good appetite.

    This place serves up some of the best-tasting sushi you can find in the price range, and the staff is always professional.

    Great, affordable sushi. Get an order of ohitashi to start and follow with some nigiri, sashimi, or maki.

    Reliable and affordable East Village sushi. The blackened tuna was a highlight and don't sleep on the Udon!

    Delicious sushi/sashimi. Take the choice out of it and go with the Sashimi Deluxe dinner specials.

    Lots of variety on their menu for staple items, most of it good. Sashimi was a highlight. Cosy, busy and well-priced.

    Finally stopped by since I live next door. Glowing foursquare tips are, alas, undeserved. Much better sushi joints in the neighborhood. Keep looking.

    Salmon is always fresh. Ink makes me weak at the knees. Wasabi octopus is hands down phenomenal.

    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.

    Inexpensive and decent sushi. Tuna tartare is great. Beef skewers are a pass.

    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.

    Freshest fish in Manhattan. But if you want something fried and spicy too, the oyster roll....insane

    Fresh fish and delicious apps - although service did feel a little rushed at times.

    Usually a long wait on the weekend, but worth every minute, go next door, downstairs, to Arrow Bar and enjoy a cherry-bourbon slurpie while you wait.

    Order the superman roll. It's not on the menu, but it's tuna, avocado, mango, tempura flakes, and spicy may.
