Great Food at a great Price – I just got back from a trip to NYC and had to leave a review for this restaraunt. This is my first time leaving a review, I felt this restaraunt was worth taking the time to do so.
The staff was friendly, the decor was warm and welcoming and the food was GREAT!
I had the California Roll and Chicken Teriyaki and my friend had the Shrimp Tempura Roll. I am not an expert on asian cuisine, but it was the best I have had so far.
I was certain the prices would be outrageous(we are in NYC), however, I paid the same price I would expect to pay in my home town of Maryland.
I will return on my next visit to NYC.
Avoid for important occasions – You would think that a restaurant in the theatre district would have their pre-theatre dining experience down. Alas, that is not the case. I called the day of to confirm my end, so I figured they better have my reservation when I walk in. It wasn't. Ended up sitting at the Sushi Bar for a B'day dinner. Food was late and we left. The staff could have cared less!
Haru Broadway – the service here is really good theyre so friendly from the time you walk in to the time you walk out. The chicken teriyaki is tasty and the california and tuna rolls are good too. They put alot of tuna in the tuna roll so thats good for whoever likes that personally i had to take some out but better more than less. Great place, pretty inside check it out!
Awesome Flavors – Great atmosphere, excellent service and the food is very flavorful. The Sea Bass is awesome and I am not a fan of fish. We make it a point to stop & eat there every time we are in New York. The location is great if you want to eat before the theatre. Well worth the money. You will not leave disappointed. I wish we had a resteraunt like Haru in Southern California.
Deliciously fresh sushi rolls, awesome cocktails! – The past few times I've eaten here have been very memorable and enjoyable experiences. Seating was prompt and service attentive/polite. The center of the restaurant floor has the best tables surrounded by the glowing candlelites, and pretty blond wood accents. Some tables in the corners and near kitchen are kind of on the dimmer side, something to consider if you like to see your food when eating.
For appetizers, would recommend the seafood spring rolls w/ green tea sauce...they came out hot and supercrispy. The sushi rolls are my favorite reason to stop by here. I ordered the crunchy spicy salmon roll. They give you plenty of salmon w/ lots of tempura flakes. It's good because it's not doused w/ mayo as many spicy rolls are. I also got the spicy tuna...and yellowtail/scallion roll- where the flavors melted w/ each bite. Cocktail menu is varied and creative. The Typhoon and lychee martini were mildly sweet, and comes in a cool flask so you can pour yourself seconds. Also tried my friends mojito..it was mixed well, and they offer lots of flavor variations. Iwould highly recommend Haru-Broadway if you're in the area, and have a sushi n drink craving.
Great atmosphere – During our 5 day stay in NYC, this is the only review I am taking the time to write. Haru was such a spledid treat. It was intensely reasonable - especially the cocktails. Their regular prices are $8-$9 for delicious cocktails. Their waiting staff for dinner was prompt and very attentive. Truly a 5 star restaurant. We went twice during our stay. A great value.
Good times – Hadn't realized that Haru was a NYC restaurant too (I'd only been to the one in Philly), but found this one in Times Square on a recent visit. The manager was the cutest thing ever and so sweet, and the fairy lights and bamboo branches (or whatever they were) were a great touch. Tried a bunch of appetizers (lobster mango ceviche + symphony were fantastic) and some sake. Different vibe than Philly but every bit as good. Highly recommended.
Recommended, but not for the sushi – The basic sushi items and rolls are average. There's nothing wrong with them, but there's nothing special, either -- considering that, they're grossly overpriced. Most of the non-sushi items I've had are pretty good, though. That, plus the very nice ambience and the good bar make it a good place to stop by with friends or a date for a dinner or drink when you want Japanese food in a nice atmosphere. For these reasons, you'll want to pass on this place as a take-out option, though. Its best attributes are the ambience and location, which don't translate to the office or home even though the bill does.
Not Worth Money – I've had better Japanese food at a mall food court. First walking in the place seemed to have great ambience. However, after being seated literally on top of the next table (couldn't even fit between the two tables, I'm small) and then having to scream to my husband because of the high noise level, it quickly lost its appeal. After seeing the high prices I thought the food would be great and the sushi was very good. But the meals were terrible. I ordered the Chicken Teriyaki and my husband got Garlic Shrimp. My chicken was completely dried out and on the cold side and the sauce was not very flavorful. The one positive thing I can say is that the service was prompt, we got seated right away and the server was very friendly. I wouldn't ever go back. Way too much money for such a terrible meal.
Beautiful – My friend and I were wandering through Times Square at night and we didn't want to eat at Olive Garden or another American food joint. So we tried Haru- and were very pleased. The sushi was fresh and smooth and the presentation was excellent. We loved how the placed looked and how quickly the chefs worked. We sat at the bar, and the chef who conversed with us made excellent recommendations and catered to us perfectly. (Spider roll was great, and fatty tuna is in season now!) However, the waitstaff is a bit strained and it took a while to get our check. The check came out to be more expensive than anticipated, but for dinner at Times Square I wouldn't complain (everythings expensive there, with usually pretty bad food too.) If you're in the square and need a sushi fix, this is a great place to start!
