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.
Your miso soup will probably have a shrimp head in it. Don't be surprised when it floats up to say hi.
One of the best sushi restaurants in the city. Small but really, really good. Always the freshest fish and the chef is top notch.
get the omakase - there'll definitely be some weird looking items, but you'll be glad you tried it!
Go to Ushiwakamaru. Order the 15 piece nigiri set. Leave happy.
Be prepared to have your senses and taste buds be taken to a whole other level. The restaurant is very casual, but the quality is superior.
Becomes Benkei Ramen at night. HOURS: Tues-Sat 12:30am till 4am Sunday 5pm to 12:30am
Chef Hideo puts on a show here preparing his masterful sushi. Grab a seat at the sushi bar, get the omakase and watch him make it. It's a very fun experience.
If you want to try omakase in NYC, this is the spot.
Hideo Kuribara's Houston Street restaurant is a favorite among chefs and sushi purists, and, thankfully, it's moderately priced by New York sushi standards. [Eater 38 Member]
Call day of and make reservation for 9:30pm ... Chances are low if you walk-in as they only have 1 table...
Everything is good here! Ask if they have uni from Hokkaido, it's sweeter than the Santa Barbara variety.
Awesome omakase for a pretty awesome price.
SO GOOD. seriously if you get a chance to go, do it.
OMAKASE! That is all.
The lobster was truly amazing!
The uni just melts in your mouth. The omakase is a must.
Nice spot that serves up quality sushi at a decent price, often serving up some unusual seafood treats. -John W.
Sit at the bar and enjoy your meal. What you can get here is not just great food but also an amazing experience. Also they serve blowfish here, which is imported straight from Japan.
Heard it's a great place. It must be a great place. But we've waited for an hour... is it because it's a Sat night??
buy Hideo (chef owner always on the left) a beer and it'll make your evening.
Definitely make yourreservation to sit at the sushi bar for the complete experience.

Amazing: cured fluke sushi with shiso leaf and olive oil, seared toro with truffle
Fluke sashimi for clean start
Very Delicate sushi with attentive staff
Try to get a place at the bar to discuss with the chef! Lots of fun and awesome sushis!
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).
The green tea crepe cake is amazing!
If you don't want to take out a second mortgage on your home for a bangin omakase, this is this the place to go. Ichi ban.
Omakase is the only way to go here.
This is the best sushi I have ever eaten. Period. Yasuda has nothing on these guys.
Chef at sushi bar reuses Sea Urchin from another sushi returned by someone don't like it…
Omakase. Orion beer. Red miso soup. Love the freshly grated wasabi. Sweet service.
Medium Toro is ridic good!
Sit at the counter and enjoy fish that is fresh and unique. You can never go wrong with sushi and sashimi here, everything is always on point. Try the house special torched golden eye snapper!
Late night ramen. And by late I mean 4am!
Nigiri special is definitely a deal... Only if you are sitting at a table
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.
Ummm... Everything was amazing. Sit down, order some saki, and eat!
Really good quality sushi in a low key spot.
Sit at the bar, order the omakase course, and allow your brain and taste buds to explode in pleasure. You won't regret a moment :)
