    Daily fresh fish specials. Uni from CA or Japan. Garden salad $5, yellowtail jalapeño $13 & uni sushi CA $3.50 per piece. Never too busy and quiet enough to hear your friends.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again...This is the BEST omakase deal! Chef Jack Wei is the most underrated sushi chef in NYC! My favorite sushi place, no contest!

    The truffle red snapper, the seared salmon truffle oil sashimi is amazing and do not forget the Kumamoto oysters. I do not know why this place does not have a better rating. Please check in and like!!

    Awesome restaurant near Astor place. They are so friendly with the kids they even made the chopsticks to make it easier for them. Delicious food! Try the Salmon Lover.

    They have the most amazing mushroom soup I've ever had. Ever. I'm not joking. What a sleeper of a restaurant. The uni is also insanely fresh and the sushi is on-point.

    Had a great omakase - the sushi pieces were just the right size - not too big. Get the hitachino white ale to go with it!

    Amazing lunch special: 3 Maki rolls for $12.50, and bento boxes are a good deal during lunch time. Eel salmon rolls and soft and have a great ratio of fish to rice.

    Any sushi/sashimi with truffle anything is fantastic. Salmon with truffle oil, snapper with summer truffles... Omg =)...

    Get the Yuba Combo Platter (8 pieces sashimi, 8 pieces sushi & 1 roll.) That + the Yuba roll (so unique!) & the "sweet corn tempura" (aka Asian corn fritters) was the perfect amount for 2 people. Yum!

    Sit at the bar and chat with George and Jack and the begin the Omakase! Make sure you try the Uni, Hamachi, Karaage and Yuba Pouch. The food and the value are amazing.

    The rock shrimp canape roll is absolutely delicious - dream worthy. This place is a hidden gem around Astor place!

    Sushi and sashimi platter for lunch is not a bad deal. Time from order to being served was long, so it’s not for a quick bite

    The omakase is one of the best in the city. Say hi to Chef Jack if you sit at the sushi bar...he will take great care of you!

    Absolutely outstanding service. Ordered the spicy special at the recommendation of the server. While it wasn't spicy, it was fresher than your average roll, and tastier too :-)

    Wow - amazing! We got the omakase 5 course at the sushi counter. Uni, sweet corn, foie gras & duck bun (unbelievably good), and all of the sushi were superb.

    They have great service. One time, our table was a little wobbly, so our waiter leveled it for us.

    Little germ among st.marks little Tokyo. Not your average Japanese, menu is tailored to higher end / rare fish. More different options than other cheapo /pseudo Japanese.

    Green tea crepe is not to be missed. By Lady M, only select Japanese restaurants get this green tea version of the cake.
