Our meal here was highly dissapointing..We are sushi fanatics and love Sushi of Gari and Sushi Seki in NY ..We had been to Sasabune in LA and wanted to try NYC location.It was not good...It really had no special flavorings and some of the sashimi was freezing cold, and some was almost warm. For the first time both my husband and I got a fishy taste ..like it was not fresh...so much so we came home and had hot water with lemon to try to get rid of the bad taste...We sat at the sushi bar and the wall next to me was filthy, really gross...and to top it off 280$...which i was expecting but when its not even good or special...makes it a bit more unpleasant...will never return there...Sushi seki and gari are a million times better, and friendlier and better ambiance...
Super Expensive – I'm an avid sushi eater from NYC and I've been to Japan. I do my fair share of fine dining. This restaurant was much more expensive than I expected (and I'm not cheap). It cost $270 per couple. That included the prix fix menu and a $60 bottle of saki (shared by 4). Without the saki, the price would have been $240 per couple.
I take blame for being surprised by the cost because I should have asked more questions before I ate. For example, from the bill, it appeared that we actually got charged per piece; so it may have been possible to order less courses. The sign on the door says" trust me" and so I did.
We did not receive any dessert with our meal. We also didn't receive salad or any side items (no edamame or anything other than fish). For $270, I would have expected at least a dessert.
It was a very casual meal for $270 dollars. I could spent less at a much more elegant restaurant.
Price aside, I did love the food. And we got a ton of fish. The first course consisted of about 10 pieces of albacore tuna! We had about 10 courses in all, and all were delicious. We also got 4 oysters each. Great food and very fun.
Be careful going to this restaurant. Ask questions first to figure out how much you'll spend. And if you don't mind spending $250 per couple, then definitely go because the food is great.
Great sushi – Great food, but a bit pricey. Atmosphere needs work. Overall, a very good experience
Oustanding Sushi – From the outside it looks like a regular sushi place where people normally order take out or delivery, but don't let it fool you. This place by far is one of the best sushi place in NYC. They literally fly the fish from Japan!! Talk about fresh!! The price is a little in the high side and there's no menu. The sushi master will create whatever he desires that day and it is up to you to eat it. If this sounds scary, don't be, because his creation are spectacular! If you like fresh sushi and sashimi like the ones they have in Japan.... going to the UES is shorter ride than to Tokyo.
Best Sushi in NYC!! – The best sushi I had in NYC!! I went there several times and never disappointed, sit in the sushi bar if possible. Omakase only, the chef make the next piece of sushi only after you finished your piece, the rice in the sushi is still warm while you eat it. Kumamoto oysters, abalone sashimi (whole) in half shell, uni and salmon roe, etc, everything that I was served was top quality and fresh. Highly recommended.
Best Sushi EVER! – My BF's and I have been to the Honolulu and NYC restraurants and they are simply the best ever for sushi. We talk about our meals there all the time and in fact we are going there tonight to celebrate the one year anniversary of finding the restraurant in Honolulu. It is that good! Our next step is to complete the Susi Sasbune trifecta and go to the one in LA.
Awesome food, great experience – I found these reviews online and took a chance (I've only been in NYC for 7 months). My BF actually congratulated me on finding a "steal" (he's from here). We sat within seconds of arriving on a Friday night with reservations made at 4pm that day! We told the server what we didn't like and then we ate the freshest sushi I have ever had in my life! I eat sushi and often! Our service was fantastic! We especially appreciated the little tips on soy sauce/no soy sauce. Although I have to admit it wasn't a posh atmosphere, we had a dinner that we still talk about three months later and inspired me to write this review! We will be back!
Best sushi in NYC by far – I have lived in NYC for over 30 years and have been to all the big name sushi restaurants: Masa, Kuruma Zushi, Blue Ribbon, Sushi Yasuda, Sushi of Gari, Bond Street, Sushi Sen-nin (just to name a small handful). Sasabune absolutely destroys all of them. The prices are totally fair for what you are getting, and the service is excellent. Good wine and sake list, and the servers are very helpful in making a selection. Seating is very limited though, so unless you're planning on going before 6:30pm or so, I would advise making a reservation. If you are a sushi lover and you haven't tried this place, you are really denying yourself a great experience.
