Being just down the street from this place helps, but I loove me some sushi x for carry-out or dining in. Reasonably priced, fresh and always something funky playing on the wall, Sushi X has been my go-to since they opened. Hidden gems are the honey roll, ginger salad, wasabi mashed potatoes, and the new rice bowls.
You have to be a real local to go to Sushi X. There's no door, it's in the middle of nowhere and it's really sexy and good.
Great take out- very yummy – I am not a big fan of take out sushi but this place rocks. Try the spicy tuna- if you like spicy it will knock your sox off!
Hard to find but well worth it – Awesome sushi! And the service is great. Also, it is BYOB! They have some unique rolls that are very tasty.
Dinner and a Show.... – We went to this place, off the reviews from Citysearch. It was a bit scary walking up to it. But it ended up being a great night. The atmosphere was excellent, very friendly service, and the sushi was served promptly. The waiter recommended a few rolls and told us when to stop. Very large portions. Oh and there was a drunk women who took her shirt off! Dinner and a show! I definately recommend this place, no garuntee you will get the same show we got.
Great sushi – Sushi is one of the only thing's I'll eat because I'm picky...last time I was in town, my brother picked up some sushi, and it was from Sushi X....I dream about sushi from Sushi X all the way from California....trust me, I've been dying to bring my boyfriend and show him what all my bragging is about. If you do go, get the godzilla and double stack rolls...yum...
Cool sushi clubhouse focuses on delivery and takeout, but tempts with a comfortable, loungey atmosphere. – The Scene
Tucked away behind a barely marked, blink-and-you'll-miss-it black facade, this chic West Town sushi spot does mostly takeout and delivery--there's no formal waitstaff, and just a few high tables and couches for seating. But with the room's cool look (metallic gray tin ceiling, cobalt blue walls, hidden kitchen) and high-energy vibe (pumping techno music, DVDs projected on the walls), it's no surprise that local loft-dwellers are tempted to stay and lounge awhile.
Sushi X specializes in maki (the raw stuff doesn't travel as well), with a menu of about 30 different rolls, from simple sake (fresh salmon) to the gargantuan Godzilla: a crunchy, delicious monster of tempura shrimp, spicy mayo, scallion, roe, cream cheese, tempura crumbs, avocado, eel sauce and wasabi mayo. Other highlights: fragrant miso soup, served hot in a coffee mug; refreshingly tangy creamy ginger salad; warm asparagus beef rolls, and a meaty double stack rolled with tuna, yellowtail and salmon.
Tiny but tasty – Certainly, Sushi X is like no other sushi restaurant I've been to. It's not exactly a restaurant inside, having only one table large enough to seat more than 2 people. Of course, that's because the entire building is about the size of my living room, so what they've done with the space is impressive. The interior is very industrial chic, and frequently has a movie playing on the large back wall. As for the sushi, it is fresh, delicious, and inventive. When I say sushi, I should specify - they only serve maki, or rolls. Nonetheless, each is well crafted and uses many unique combos, like the godzilla roll. Definitely good for take out or a casual evening out.
