Description

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.

Tips from foursquare

  • Spicy Tuna Inside Out Roll!!

  • Perri G. on 01/20/11

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

  • Mike F. on 09/16/11

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

  • ben m. on 09/23/10

    #5 roll seems pretty basic but its outstanding!

  • Clara S. on 03/13/13

    Best in quality and size at the most reasonable price compared to so many other overrated/priced places in the city. They're UNI is the love of my life!
