Awesome food in a tiny package.
Its a tiny little place, but the Garlic Salmon Bento Box will forever stand out in my mind. Their Miso soup is just perfect, and their sushi is exceptionally fresh.
I would definitely recommend this to any person who doesn't mind the smaller gems like these, who want to enjoy great Japanese cuisine and look past the size. In fact, I think it adds to the character of the place... just go slightly before or after lunch; regulars who know about it will fill the place pretty quick.
Great bento lunch in Chelsea.
Tiny - (but lots of tables with clean blonde wood, just squeezed together). Rushed - full, packed. Call ahead if you can. They have a bigger bento lunch than anyone else in the area, for $9. Soup/salad, main entry (they even have lots of veggie rolls and veggie tempura) plus a great salmon and garlic butter cutlet - and the califoria rolls AND the dumplings. You can split with someone else, there's so much. Pretty clean, and ALMOST polite.
Inexpensive Sushi Gem.
What this restaurant lacks in atmosphere and decor, they make up in freshness of their fish. They seem to be getting the word out because every time I go in, it is more and more crowded.
In my opinion, this is the best sushi in midtown. I recommend the spicy salmon crunch with avocado roll - it is to die for!
You cannot go wrong with their three roll $9 lunch special. Plus they deliver farther than most and the takeout is just as good!
