Village Voice's Description

Sushi's the thing at this restaurant in the basement of Washington Irving's crib. The pieces of salmon, yellowtail, and tuna flop luxuriantly over well-made lozenges of rice, glistening with freshness; but watch out for the sashimi and chirashi-the fillets are so big, it's difficult to manage them with chopsticks. Other Japanese fare is generally unremarkable, except for items on the specials menu, such as a recently sampled nori roll made with soba, crab leg, and avocado. The noodles protruding from the end of each slice were deep-fried to Medusa-like effect.

    They don't take reservations. Plan on putting your name down then go across to Cibar for a drink. Spicy Tuna Inside Out #bestrolleva

    Everything is amazing. My usual order is the spicy tuna roll, the #2, and the #7.

    #5 roll seems pretty basic but its outstanding!

    I think i was over stuffed when i got here so I can't really speak to much to the food, it's ok, the place is somewhat small, not ideal for a party larger than 4 but definitely worth a mention
