    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.

    This restaurant is a favorite among chefs and sushi purists, and, thankfully, it's moderately priced by New York sushi standards. This is straightforward sushi, made with good ingredients. Read more

    SO GOOD. seriously if you get a chance to go, do it.

    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.

    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!

    Call day of and make reservation for 9:30pm ... Chances are low if you walk-in as they only have 1 table...

    Dayton Leong · July 11, 2013
  • Mona W.

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

    Mona Wu · July 9, 2013
  • Stephen L.

    Late night ramen. And by late I mean 4am!

    Stephen Lyman · June 29, 2013

    Nigiri special is definitely a deal... Only if you are sitting at a table

    It’s no surprise that Japan-philes flock to this austere restaurant. Put yourself in the hands of chef-owner Hideo Kuribara and you’ll be richly rewarded. Read more

    Pats of rice are crowned with superb seafood specimens: a tumble of velvety glass shrimp, lush slips of fatty red snapper and meaty, soy-lacquered eel, served on a glinting black plate. Read more

    The uni just melts in your mouth. The omakase is a must.

    Anna Fatlowitz · May 11, 2013
  • Elaine S.

    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.

  • Katie B.

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

    Ummm... Everything was amazing. Sit down, order some saki, and eat!

    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 :)

    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

    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.

    Freshest uni I had in a while. Top notch stuff for half the price.

    UNI! They have the best uni I've ever had in the US. I thank the owner/chef for shopping around the world in search for the best to have at his restaurant.

    Get the dish that's on fire throughout the whole meal.

    Maya Baratz · February 18, 2012

    In this city, you’d be hard-pressed to find sushi of this quality at such great prices. (But note: the portions are traditionally delicate.) Plus, this place is about as unpretentious as they come. Read more · February 12, 2012
