Conveyor belt sushi--such a novelty. I thought it was really cute. There is a pretty high turnover so the sushi was pretty fresh. They probably make them purposely small so you can eat more. Prices are pretty reasonably. I think they have the cheapest take out sushi in nyc. Also, you can sign up for an annual membership where u get 10% off. Service isn't that great though. It took them a long time to take our order and refill our water.
Recommended! – We opted to be seated upstairs because the downstairs looked crowded, and although it seemed like there were many people upstairs, seating was still very prompt. Very good atmosphere with lighting and personal rooms for tables. My boyfriend and I were seated at individual tables with another couple in the same room - so don't expect anything too personal! Food was DELICIOUS - we didn't have a conveyer belt from downstairs, but the menu is separated into sections and is very clear with pictures and good pricing. Our servers were very friendly, but there was quite a wait for the food to arrive - perhaps too many orders to attend to at once? In any case, the food was well worth the wait for its reasonable price. A New York sushi experience.
awsome! – This is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC.
Everything I tried from there tasted wonderful and their prices are just awsome compare to the quality of food I get. fast and pleasant service and quality sushi, just a perfect combination. My japanese friends love this place too.
Not fresh.. – Sure if you never had sushi before this might be a place you want to check out. There is a conveyer belt that goes around near your table and if you like what you see you take the plate off the belt. The problem with this is that if no one picks up the a dish it just keeps going around the room till someone does pick it up, therefore the fish I ate here wasn't fresh looked dry even. If you wanna check out the cool conveyer belt going around the room I suggest you go to their window and take a look from the outside and get some real sushi elsewhere.
Good sushi, great deal – If you love sushi, this is one of the best deals in Manhattan. The food is exceptional for the price. I had a wonderful meal with a friend for only $18.00 including tip. (hint: monday night is tuna night-- they have $1.00 tuna roll specials!)
The BEST Teriyaki EVER !!!!!! – This place has the best teriyaki EVER. Try their chicken or Negima. Their sushi isn't bad either. Good prices, Good food. EXCELLENT restaurant. Very nicely renovated.
Only if Mcdonald serve Sushi... – You never need to wait 15 minutes to be served, the food is right there in front of you. Nice small sushis rolling out on a factory like conveyer. Don't get me wrong, the food is pretty good. I actually find it refreshing, but after looking at the same thing going round and round for 40mins, it gets boring pretty quickly. Service is excellent, and price is right (I have the membership card).
Fun and innovative – This place is fresh and cool. The ambiance is nice, it features a conveyor belt apparatus. You just sit and watch the food pass by and pick out whatever you like. They have a menu in which you can order stuff not offered on the conveyor belt. Be prepared to wait a bit. The line can be hectic at evenings. They have an upstairs restaurant which is more elegant but the fun is downstairs with the conveyor belt. The downstairs is not recommended for groups since you have to wait for a row of seats to be available. Also go in the evenings after 6pm or so. That's when they bring out the good food.
