I will become a regular – Great sushi and 2 for 1 saki if you spend over $15 a head. All of the rolls are priced between 6-12$ and they actually taste good. My girl and I left after putting down 3 rolls, a tempura plate, 3 beers and 2 sakis for $70 with a generous tip. They have a really spacious outdoor seating area that is not cramped at all. It was a great start to a Friday night and I will do it again soon!
Best sushi in new York – If you are looking for some great sushi at a great price. The best California rolls in tv U.S.
Great Customer Service – I arrived here strictly for a light business lunch. This included me, myself and I, where I had to check voicemail, make phonecalls and grab a bite to eat. I was happily surprised. Complimentary wine/sake with my meal, and the service was attentive and excellent. My sderver made some excellent recommendations, was very polite and the food came out promptly. I had the Sharons' roll and considering myself quite a "sushi connoisseur" I did not expect this. OHhhh, delicious tuna wrapped, crunchy orange seaweed outside, with lobster meat peeking out from underneath along with fresh melt-in-your-mouth avocado. Simply heaven.
Wonderful food, gracious (if occasionally clumsy) service in a beautiful setting. – Planet is very simple. It has no gimmicks, it's not trendy, it's just some of the best sushi in the city in a lovely quiet room. Your best is sushi here, but the cooked dishes are also quite good. Lunch is a spectacular bargain; every bit as good as dinner at a fraction of the price. Service can be uneven, but it is always friendly and polite. The chirashi is especially good - chef's choice of sashimi arranged on perfectly cooked and seasoned sushi rice. Well worth it for both lunch and dinner, and a close runner-up to Yasuda in quality.
bad fish and service – the quality of the fish is bad and so was the service.(the waiter is not attentive at all).............
Great Neighborhood Sushi - Affordable & Friendly! – I've been eating at Planet Sushi for years now and the sushi is CONSISTENTLY good. I actually work at a high end sushi restaurant in Manhattan and their fish is of equal quality at literally HALF the price (shhhh, don't tell my boss!). Some advice: order sashimi - you get 2 pieces for the same price of 1 piece of sushi. Also try: Tango Roll, Rainbow Roll, and the TriStar Roll (a frequent special) - all are delicious. For dessert , go for the flaming red bean ice cream tempura. Finally, service and management has been nothing but helpful and friendly in all my many lunch and dinner visits. This place is nothing fancy, but it's fresh fish and low prices have kept me coming back weekly.
I dont like flies on my sushi or to be thought stupid. – What would you do if you saw flies landing on the prepared sushi at the sushi bar? My 9 yr old daughter saw this and pointed it out to our table of 6, we all looked in shocked surprise. The sushi chef noticed us looking and saw the flies as well and attempted to shoo them away...not remake it the sushi?... Then a waitress came by and also shooed away the flies and picked up the fly sushi to bring to a table....I thought thank goodness it isnt ours...WELL IT WAS...THE WAITRESS PICKED UP THE ORDER AND WALKED IT AROUND THE RESTUARANT AND CAME TO OUR TABLE! Like I wouldnt notice.
Pretty ballsy behavior I thought and when I pointed out I wasnt going to eat it the manager and waitress both seemed not to be able to speak English and didnt understand why. I was with someone who spoke Japanese but neather of the employees were Japanese. Well we walked out never to return. What an insult to try to trick a customer to eat something disgusting.
You get what you pay for – If you want a cheap, quick bite, and you're really hungry--go here. You'll probably like it just fine. If you want good sushi, don't go. I eat sushi all over this city every week. I went here once and never went again--even though it's close to home. The fish seemed almost as if it had been frozen, and the rice was subpar. Quality rice is key in sushi--any place that skimps on that can't really make it up from there.
Great custumer service and sushi selection – My husband and I went for a quick dinner. We went on our bikes and one of the servers helped us with our locks! Great value for the amount of food we had. Bill came only to $30 and we were stuffed!
Quality sushi – Lunch special is a lot of food. 3 rolls, soup and salad for something lik $8.75. Outside seating is nice in good weather and the staff was attentive. Sushi was good but nothing to write home about. The pieces were small but the fish was good quality and there wasn't a lot of rice to mess with. Soup and salad were both good. Would do take-out again for lunch.
