Food Unremarkable – Atmosphere was great.
Service was strange.
Seared duck was too gamey - was not good
Sushi was nothing special to subpar.
Ikura – I've been here twice and both times the fish was fresh and so tasty. If you're a fan of ikura you should definately try theirs. The sushi chef here marinates his own. It is not at all as salty as the processed type you would nornally find anywhere else. I'm putting my disclaimer in now. The last 2x I've been the ikura was good. If they decide to change their technique, I can't be blamed. Service is good and they want you to enjoy your dining experience. If you're starving! you may find their service on the slow side. Happy dining!
we went last saturday night for the dinner and absolutely loved their food. Actually, I wanted to order the Omasake but the waitress talked us out of it, so we ordered regular sushi dinner and some kitchen stuff. everything was fresh and tasty(except the mackerel sushi, I personally did not like any kind of mackerel and the rib eye steak was slightly overcooked ) Try their toro tempura roll, it was very good! We also tried 2 different deserts and they were all ok. Overall I would give this place an 8. Would I go back ? probably yes.
Yuk – Just had lunch there, to be honest it wasn't very good. The service was absent minded and we were one of two parties in the place. I had the lunch special plus a couple of extra pieces. Most of it was okay - on the cusp of not being bad except for the Toro, which was A) $7.00 and B) gross - bad smell, bad taste, bad all the way around. The Irkura was likewise - tasted like it had been around a couple of days too long. The place is relatively cheap, but you get what you pay for.
Excellent place! – I love 'sushi' but my biggest complaint about Japanese food in NY (in this $$ range) is that it all tastes the same. The fish in the rolls often isnt really discernible, the wine list is usually skimpy, ambience is often lacking and the menu doesnt offer enough choices. But NOT at Nagomi. This place is excellent. I had been on the lookout for a place where I could regularly get fresh, tasty Japanese food without feeling like I was getting completely ripped off. Nagomi answered my woes. Tasty food, good variety, cozy, ideal location (for me), friendly servers and decent prices. Overall, a great place!
Sushi and Japanese fusion fare under one relaxed roof. – In Short
Brick, cherry wood and mosaic-tiled floors instead of the usual blond wood and block prints is the first sign that this sushi stop isn't like the others. Locals love that there's neither long waits nor high prices for fish and fusion gems such as duck in orange soy glaze, uni risotto or pea pancakes with Parmesan. The loyal clientele's favorite signature rolls include seared toro tempura, and king crab with avocado, cucumber and yogurt mayo.
No-bad-eat – I have to admit, Japanese isn't my favorite cuisine; but I was really surprised at how good my food was. I actually enjoyed it. I feel like the only spice associated with Japanese food is wasabi, so I usually find any other entrées to be bland.
I went in for lunch and we got seats quickly. My entrée was quite flavorful and the presentation was well done, comparable to more expensive restaurants. Not your typical take-out sushi in a box. Actually, for a Japanese restaurant, I found the price inexpensive and they have a lunch menu (you know how some can be).
Anyway, I have to admit this is the first time I've really enjoyed Japanese cuisine. Even more than the food I had in Japan!
Amazing place - absolute charm – My husband and I came across this gem of a restaurant several weeks ago. First of all, the decor is very simple and inviting. I always prefer the corner spot. The service is attentive and friendly. Lunch specials are a great deal - fresh sushi for a fraction of the cost at Blue Ribbon, delicious tuna steak for $10.50, etc. I couldn't give this place a higher endorsement.
As good a dining experience as it gets – Service, atmosphere, prices, food...all outstanding. A few other reviewers recommended the pepper tuna and they couldn't be more correct. The rest of the sushi/sashimi just had a fantastic fresh taste to it. I'm looking forward to going back.
Diamond in Soho. – If you are looking for a great sushi restaurant in soho area, you are looking at it. Once you are here, you cant resist yourself to comeback again. Great quality food, worm and cozy atmosphere, good price, and friendly service will definitely make you regular customer of Nagomi. Sushi lovers!!! Do not hesitate to try Omakase the chefs special. It's good stuff.
