    Tuna lovers special is a must

    Ok this was not only NOT Nobu, it was just BAD! I guess if you're used to a certain quality - mediocre will just not do.

    Get the daily specials. You can get your shrimp head fried when you're done.

    Quite possibly the nicest staff & manager I've ever met. They accidentally overcharged my card, I brought it to their attention, they apologized so much & are now treating me to a free dinner.

    Best sushi in the Slope. Great chirashi bowl and the Salmon Lover set is incredible.

    Good nigiri sushi. Their chu toro is often delicious.

    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

    Best Kani sushi around!

    Real Crab California Roll is the way to go.

    Katie Bartasevich · April 5, 2014

    Real crab California roll. Get it and you will never eat regular California rolls again.

    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.

    So freakin good.

    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!

    The Corcoran Group · December 5, 2013
  • Robyn

    Everything was perfect - try to get the lunch special if you can, it's a great value for such quality.

    Robyn · November 8, 2013
  • Dennis K.

    Amazing. So good.

    Dennis Kovalyov · October 13, 2013
  • Jeff C.

    It has been a long time since I've had sushi this good in New York. The udon is worth it too.

    Jeff Coles · September 17, 2013
  • Denise L.

    Agedashi Tofu is good for sharing; decent sushi; red bean mochi was yummy

    Denise Lum · September 9, 2013
  • rich m.

    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.

    rich masio · September 2, 2013
  • rich m.

    It's busy, but not too busy that it should take more than 5 minutes to pour me a glass of water

    rich masio · August 31, 2013
  • Paul M.

    Taro is great. I really like the 3 oyster special as a starter (on the menu frequently).

    Paul May · July 15, 2013
  • Peter P.

    Try the *Doctor* Octopus sashimi.

    Peter Parker · April 23, 2013
  • Jacklyn C.

    Awesome omakase. Uni and amaebi are a must! Fish tastes fresh and prices are a steal for the quality.

    Jacklyn Cheung · March 24, 2013
  • Deborah A.

    Killer omakase. Get the special sushi for two to share amongst three is you get apps. They will make it for three as well.

    Deborah Au-Yeung · March 16, 2013
  • Brett R.

    Salmon Bento box is completely worth it for a variety

    Brett Rush · February 18, 2013
  • Tony H.

    Wait for it... wait for it... there it is. The whole building shakes when Iron Man and/or the Men in Black are chasing their enemies through the NY subway.

    Tony Hartzell · February 12, 2013
  • Tina G.

    The salmon teriyaki wasn't worth it. In sure I managed to order the only thing that didn't taste good here.

    Tina G. · November 9, 2012
  • Nicholas M.

    Head to Geido up the street.

    Nicholas Melvin · November 6, 2012

    Such an awesome omakase here. Best sushi in all of Brooklyn!

    Special sushi for 2 is absolute perfection.

    Deborah Au-Yeung · August 4, 2012
  • Lisa K.

    the only place in Brooklyn I know of that serves my favorite - natto roll!

    Lisa Kim · July 29, 2012
  • Charles B.

    best sushi in the slope. ask them what's fresh and treat yoself to a couple pieces of chu toro.

    Charles B · June 17, 2012
  • Kimberely C.

    Gyu-tan shio is yum! Great appetizer before sushi for two!

    Kimberely Cheng · May 23, 2012
  • Nick B.

    The special sushi for two is always perfect. As is the monkfish liver and age tofu!

    Nick Burd · May 17, 2012

    Going with their daily specials can never steer you wrong

    Alex Valich · March 19, 2012

    Deluxe seaweed salad was the best I've ever had

    George Pettas · March 13, 2012
  • Christen D.

    It's cheap, it's good, and it's never too much of a wait. Come a few times and the waitstaff will remember you.

    Christen Duong · February 13, 2012
  • Shanta M.

    Try the pork katsu roll for something different.

    Shanta Mali · January 14, 2012

    Does warm sushi sound good to you? This place is gross. Go to Geido at Flatbush and Park; this restaurant just handles the overflow.

    angry natalie · January 14, 2012
  • Travis C.

    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.

    Travis Collins · December 20, 2011
  • Daniel R.

    Omakase course waa very good. Almoat like Tokyo.

    Daniel R. · December 18, 2011

    Mediocre. The sushi was just fine. The avoc. tofu salad was not good. Spider roll just tasted like fried batter. Geido,1 block up, is authentic & better. Kiku on 5th ave has the best sushi around.

    Shrimp tempura roll is seriously the best I have ever had.

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