    Precision and detail are Ushiwaka Maru’s modus operandi. Gourmands love it for the vinegar-laden sticky rice and unusual sazae (sea snails) and shiroebi (mini white shrimp).

    Everything is good here! Ask if they have uni from Hokkaido, it's sweeter than the Santa Barbara variety.

    Sit at the bar get the Shirohebi a tiny and very creamy shrimp. 70% of their food comes from Japan many of their pieces are unusual and delicious. Try the omakase if you like the adventure.

    Your miso soup will probably have a shrimp head in it. Don't be surprised when it floats up to say hi.

    NYC has many, many, many sushi restaurants. However, this is one of the best because it is still so authentic--none of that ‘nobu fabulousness’ here. Read more

    The food is decent here but the service is extremely poor for the price you are paying. Our female server was unfriendly and at an attitude. Moreover, one of our dishes came 40 mins after our meal.

    First few times here was five years ago and it rocked. Tried it today again Omakase and it was alright. We sat discreetly on a table but in a good venue that should make no difference. Not the case.

    The sushi is top notch. Sit at the bar & let the chef cook for you, for half the price of the other big-name sushi places. We highly recommend that people go here.
