Unique Japanese Restaurant for Inaniwa Udon – I was craving for Inaniwa Udon and found SEO on this little block.
Their Stewed Pork with fried rice cake for appertizer was very good, tender and soft stewed pork.
I had their Inaniwa Hiyamori - which is cold Inaniwa Udon with cold dipping sauce. Very traditional, texture of noodles was just right, dipping sauce was great pairing.
NY SEO Consultant Recommends SEO Sushi Restaurant – At first I thought this was a NY Search Engine Optimization (SEO) advertisement but once I realized it was a restaurant, I check it out. I operate a SEO company so I just had to check out how SEO sushi tasted. The answer: Excellent.
If you are looking for a great Sushi destination in Midtown Manhattan, I would recommend SEO Japanese Restaurant.

Amazing!! the best Japanese restaurant!!!! – I go there for a lunch.The food is excellent and beautiful.!!The service is also great!! They have great desert menu too which you should try.I love the Japanese style sweet ANMITSU. The sushi and sashimi are just wonderful. I love Chirashi sushi which has a lot of diffrent kinds of sashimi. After I started going there I can not go to other Japanese restaurant anymore!
perfect little japanese hideaway – Located on a tree lined block in Turtle Bay next to a Korean nail parlor is one of the most authentic, unpretentious Japanese restaurants in the city. I can't say enough good things about this neighborhood joint. They have a floor to ceiling glass wall facing a pristine Japanese garden in the back (no seating outside) and the best spicy tuna roll in town. It's refreshingly different from all the hip Japanese fusion stand outs in the city.
A Must Try – Not cheap, but the food is EXCELLENT. If you are looking for creative rolls, this is not the restaurant for you. Their sushi menu is limited, but the quality of what they do have on the menu is out of this world. Try the toro...it literally melts in your mouth. The thinly sliced marinated beef is delicious and the zaru soba is unique with its many choices of items you can add to the dipping sauce. If you order sake you have to buy a whole bottle. The bottles are small and expensive.
Excellent Food – This place is amazing. Amazing Tonkatsu, equally amazing Japanese Roast Beef with Ponzu Sauce, the even more amazing sushi. The staff is helpful and always polite. The restaurant is tiny, with a clientel (at least in my experience) being mainly Japanese. The prices, considering what you're getting, are quite good also. I'd eat there at least once a week if I could afford it.
Impeccable – After my second visit to this impossibly charming yet peaceful space, it hit me. Seo has served me, on two separate occasions, the best tuna I have ever tasted. The quality and freshness of the fish here cannot be described in a review. In addition to the fare, the tranquil and understated dining area is a perfect compliment to this establishment's sleepy Turtle Bay location. For all you sashimi purists, make an exception and order a spicy tuna roll; instead of "mixing" the fish with the sauce, Seo serves beautiful pieces of yellowfin lightly covered in an understated yet delicious mix of spices. Along with a deep list of sake, Seo offers creative dishes as sushi alternatives, such as the mouth-watering calamari salad and gorgeous crab dumplings. In front you'll find a very comfortable sushi bar, with many of the fabulous dishes on display. Seo is fantastic. Its that simple.
