    The new location is larger, but the menu is basically the same. Look for a wide selection of sashimi, priced between $2 and $4.50 apiece. Also, to quote @AaronT "Omg-kase" Read more

    My neighborhood sushi spot. My go-to dish is the massive special sushi for 2. There's also great little 4-piece sushi ensembles.

    Bypass the lines at Geido and mosey down Flatbush Avenue for equally satisfying sushi at Taro. Dark, wood fixtures and minimal design provide a moody backdrop for indulgences like toro tartar.

    A bit expensive, and not Exactly what I would describe as "good.". There are much better sushi spots in the area. Instead go to 'Gen' on Washington ave. Much better food and presentation.

    Come with a date & get the Special Sushi for 2. It includes 16 pieces of sushi, a shrimp tempura roll & a mountain roll (spicy tuna, avocado & yellowtail) - all for $49. Everything is super fresh too!

    Delicious. However, default soy sauce is super salty. You can ask for low sodium if you like. Great Miso soup and you must try the Karen roll and Age Gyoza.

    The fish is as pristine and skillfully prepared as at any of the expense sushi places in Manhattan. Sit at the bar for omakase, a relative bargain, and munch your way through earthy monkfish liver. Read more

    Super disappointed as recommendation came from a newly ex-pat Japanese friend. Butterfish had skin and tasted old. Nothing was really fresh. Prices were ok.
