    Love Watawa—it's my favorite sushi place in the area & go-to dinner spot. Top picks: the wasabi shumai, garlic or miso Chilean sea bass, Park Avenue roll, Bumble Bee roll, sashimi, and hot sake.

    The Sea color roll was DELISH !!! The Bumble bee roll and Irine roll also two great choices. The Irine roll you get a different filling with each roll because of the multi seafood choices they add.

    Some of the finest sushi on the planet and I travel a lot! Great for family, great for a date, but not great to find a mate. @GeorgeSpartan

    The fish sourcing is superb. Top quality sashimi - ask about what fish they have that day that are not on the menu (sea bream and jack from Japan today were exceptional).

    This place is so good! The sushi is always fresh and delicious. Get the Spider roll, you won't regret it. The Pauline roll is also great and Spicy Crab- off the hook! Do it.

    Best sushi in Astoria! Best and friendliest service. Super fresh. Best Philadelphia roll in the city. It includes salmon, cream cheese, avocado and cucumber! Yum!

    This is my favorite sushi place anywhere, including manhattan. Spicy tuna is to die for!! Beef negamaki is great, and most of the rolls- we love the volcano roll.

    Don’t let the electronic music and LCD lights distract you. Instead, focus on inventive rolls like the Wasabi (bursting with four types of caviar) and the Humble Bee (topped with mango).

    The original home of the Spicy Crab Roll. Get the Pauline or Dynamite rolls because they are guaranteed to shatter your universe. The expansion is taking a bit long though...

    Best sushi you can get in all of NYC - that includes the freshness, the price AND the service. Hands-down, I'd bring anyone from Manhattan to Astoria for this experience. Google will say the same! Read more

    They put a lot of ginger dressing on their salad which I like. Sushi and Sashimi for Two for $42 is a great deal.
