Village Voice's Description

This isn't your average sushi place. First of all, the décor has a delightfully ramshackle sensibility perfectly suited for the artsy East Village. Mismatched chairs sit around a large wooden table topped with a globe, surrounded by oil paintings, potted plants and all sorts of quirky bric-a-brac. It can get pretty crowded here, with big groups of in-the-know locals coming here for a diverse array of Japanese dishes. Start with appetizers like the tofu hot pot with kelp broth or the deep-fried shrimp cakes. The sushi offerings are pretty standard, as are the tempura and udon choices. Hearty entrees include an oven-roasted free-range chicken served with black sesame sauce, broiled eel with unagi sauce and a prime rib-eye served with butter. You can even cook shabu-shabu at your own table. Sorry, deal seekers; the restaurant is no longer BYOB, now serving a variety of Japanese beers and sake.—Keith Wagstaff

  • Allison P. on 12/07/12

    Delicious drunk writing spot

  • Justin C. on 10/26/12

    Don't ever come here on a Friday night. Waited for an hour just to have one dish to come out.

  • Tuan B. on 04/06/11

    Pork tonkatsu sandwich is da bomb!

  • Bernadette A. on 10/29/10

    Pretty fresh sushi everytime with good portions of fish. Like soba? Tem zaru soba noodles is good - cold dipping sauce with a side of tempura.

  • Ron K. on 07/26/10

    Get the katsu-sandwich! Best (only place?) in the city!
