Seeing the sushi master practice in this bamboo-embellished space is the culinary equivalent of observing Buddhist monks at prayer. Counter seating, where you can witness—and chat up—the chefs, is the only way to go. Prime your palate with a miso soup and segue into the raw stuff: petals of buttery fluke; rich eel; dessert-sweet egg custard; nearly translucent discs of sliced scallop over neat cubes of milky sushi rice. This is a sushi purist's paradise, and no two meals are ever the same.

Best sushi experience in Manhattan so far.
The torotuna was melting in my mouth and even though I know that more than é is to much for this kind of sushi I wanted more of them
Clearly the chef know what he is doing and the fact hat he has fish deliver form Tsujiki market in Tokyo every day shows that he is into quality
Don't hesitate to take the Omakase menu if you can because event though it looks like a lot at the end you will just love it
Top quality sushi and sashimi. Tuna and bonito out of this world. Great ice cream. Loved the quality, the service and the presentation. Top quality is priced accordingly, but worth it. If you like proper Japanese food and ambiance do go.
Probably one of the greatest Japanese restaurants in the world. Incredible sushi, amazing red bean ice cream too
