Worst dining experience in memory.
The sushi and quality wasn't bad at all but, as luck would have it, on my first visit, an intellectually-challenged "regular" sidled up next to me at the three-person sushi bar.
Of course, the restaurant can't control who comes in, and they dealt with her as diplomatically as possible. (Moving her to another location would have been, however, more appropriate.)
I was finally forced to move to a different location myself, just so I could try to enjoy the last few bites of my meal in peace.
I would have imagined that at least some small portion of my $50-plus check would have been comped - the dining experience was truly inappropriate - but, alas, all the manager did was giggle and say "so sorry."
Needless to say, no tip, and no chance of returning.
I am a regular customer of theirs. The food is superb! Miso Soup, Salmon rolls, Sashimi meal, clean fresh food, great environment.
Anywhere near Midtown West - stop by!
Perfect lunch -- highly recommended!
Alright Chinese food in Hell's Kitchen.
I want to like this place but I know it is not up to par. in the Mid 30s and all the way to 9th or 10th Ave, there aren't many Chinese restaurants. There are some silly take-out places, but they are all Americanized, MSG-saturated food.
T.S. Ma is unlike those places. It serves quasi-Chinese food at a higher price. Since I am Taiwanese, I am not too impressed with their food. But compared to the peers in this area, it is outstanding.
They also have sushi but since they are Chinese, their sushi is just average too.
I consider this a top choice for Chinese lunch in this area but nothing else.
Top Service, Best Fresh ingredients, safe white-meat chicken. Price is less than the oily others.. The servers and service was excellent. I was in town for two weeks and they knew me and my order. I look for real white meat chicken breast in my Chinese. The quality ingredients and excellent staff made me return. I know they are known for the sushi, but that's not my thing. I enjoy brown rice and udon noodles. The soup has fresh veggies and top quality ingredients.
