“The ambiance is pretty nice (but it's small, and can get very loud on weekends).”
“You have the best personalities behind any sushi bar.”
“My friends and I had a great time, the food was excellent, and the service was better than I have ever received at a restaurant.”
“Although very small and sometimes hard to get a reservation for, it is well worth the effort as the sushi is excellent with great variety and it's BYOB - so you won't break your wallet.”
“This is my favorite restaurant in the city.”
“Its BYOB, bring a big bottle of something and share it with the guys, they appreciate it and they will remember you when you come back.”
“Cube is a great place for sushi because it's oh so yummy and not so expensive!”
“The food was good but extremely slow service.”
Tiny portions for the price. I went with my girlfriend on a Monday night and ordered miso soup, 2 rolls, and some sushi/sashimi. The service was prompt, but the restuarant only had one group there that night. The rolls are very tiny and even though we had 1 roll with tuna and another with eel, they tasted almost the same. We did not feel that we had our $10 worth in the rolls; it felt more like an appetizer than an entree. There are a lot of better japanese places in nearby East Village that charge the same prices and provide better portions, such as Nori.
Horribly rude service!!!. I went to Cube 63 with some friends this past Saturday night for a casual birthday dinner. I called the restaurant to tell them that my group was running late due to traffic and that's when they FIRST informed me that there was a 1.5 hour time limit on the table, from the time of the reservation, regardless of when our party arrived. The lady was EXTREMELY rude and repeatedly asked if we were going to show up or not, clearly because she wanted to give our tables away. When I arrived at the restaurant only a few minutes after the reservation time, she rudely asked AGAIN if the rest of my friends were definitely going to show up. Furthermore, she couldn't seem to understand English or something, because she was confused when I told her that they need to tell people about the time limit on the table WHEN THEY ARE MAKING THE RESERVATION, NOT WHEN THEY SHOW UP! Then they gave us a 4 person table for 6 people, it was ridiculously small and uncomfortable! They also rushed us during the meal and especially towards the end of the time limit. The sushi is good, but the rolls are tiny, and its not worth the harassment. AVOID THIS PLACE!!!!!!!
Great sushi. I've gone to this restaurant once or twice a year since it opened and always wonder why I don't go more. It can be a bit cozy in there, but you never mind once you get your food. This is by far the best value for sushi I've found in NYC. Bond Street may be better, but other than that I can't really say anyone else provides a superior sushi meal.
rude service. I could not believe the staff at this place. Immediately upon arriving we were told we had a time limit on our reservation and would have to leave in an hour and a half. This place is BYOB and should be a great place to relax with your friends and couple bottles of wine. Instead we were rushed through dinner and dessert and then told outright we had to leave. When we asked if we could finish our bottle of wine, the staff verbally attacked us. I will never return to this place and would urge no one else to go. There are far better BYOB sushi places with much nicer staff.
HORRIBLE SERVICE, MEDIOCRE SUSHU. I was looking for to this place. The service was inattentive and actually downright rude. The sushi was average at best but not bad. The space is cool and the neighborhood great. We were asked to leave immediately upon paying the check, which was very disturbing. There are plenty of other places to grab great sushi with good service and not be rushed. Go to those.
delicious sashimi, yummy noodles. Mmmm tasty! Good priced, good tasting sushi. Like most people have said, their sashimi plate is good. I really like their noodle dishes; the peanut noodles are good and theres a few spicy seafood ones, but I dont remember which one i like better. Of the other dishes I've tried most of them were tasty.
byob woohoo. I need my sushi fix about once or twice a week so i went to this restaurant after reading some good reviews. I must say that this place is extremely overrated. The sushi is average...we ordered a few different special rolls and they all tasted the same. Place lacks any ambiance and is a bit run down (and not in the cool trendy way). Service was extremely slow. We got our rolls 45 minutes after out appetizers. There are far better sushi joints than this one so keep looking...
fantastic. best sushi in the city super fast and very friendly service! ambiance is great, prices are great to. You cant beat this place.
Favorite Sushi Place in LES!. I LOVE this place! I am completely addicted to their salmon tartare and Volcano Roll! It's a tiny place that gets pretty loud, but the food is worth it! I almost wish the owners would consider expanding their space. Definitely remember to make reservations and bring a bottle of wine/ sake!
Great Sushi, but kinda small. My girlfriend and I went there on a Friday night. The sushi was fantastic; very creative rolls and all the fish was fresh and tasty. The service was good enough; a little slow, but we were in no rush to leave anyway. The only drawback being it is a little small and you're sort of sitting on top of the tables next to you. But all in all, a nice experience.
