Just Okay – Check this place out...no big deal. The tuna is a bit gray. Good thing I only order a piece of that. The beef soba is below par. Chewy beef and overcooked soba. The soup base is on the bland side.
Spacious, pleasant and unpretentious – At a time when many restaurants seem more focused on image than on food, Planet Sushi breaks the trend by offering quality sushi in an unpretentious and spacious environment with an extraordinarily attentive staff. The sushi pieces are perfectly sized (plump and meaty, but not so obnoxiously large that the pieces needs to be broken in two...another inexplicable trend - restaurants have recently confused size with quality). It is undoubtedly the best sushi restaurant on the UWS and it also can hold its own (quite nicely, in fact) against the premier sushi restaurants in NYC...at about a quarter of the price
Great Food & Service – If you go to dine at Planet Sushi, expect to eat a delicious meal. Everything is well prepared. The service is wonderful and everyone is friendly and attentive. It is a great place to bring family & friends. Both the sushi and the kitchen foods are out of site or should I say out of this world!
Spacious and offbeat restaurant serves regulation sushi to a loyal clientele. – In Short
With big windows all around, a faux-bamboo facade, a tableau depicting space exploration, and a modern, streamlined look, Planet Sushi takes a friendly attitude to Japanese cuisine. In addition to the expected sushi standards, served a la carte or in combos, the sushi bar offers blackened tuna, an eel-avocado roll and other inventions. The kitchen also offers hot entrees, including beef with a mushroom-radish sauce, fluke fillet with wasabi, and scallops in lemon butter.
Dine in or order – Good sushi for the UWS. EXCELLENT service (speed, courtesy, etc.). Very laid back and comfortable atmosphere.
So-So Sushi – I have previously ordered take out sushi several months ago and it was delicious so I decided to dine in. Both the sushi and the kitchen food were mediocere at best. I would not recommend the hot sauce but the salad was good. There are many better places to get sushi in NYC.
Out of this World – Planet Sushi is one of the most serene restaurants I have ever eaten at. You will love the environment and the service. The management of this establishment should get a standing ovation. They seat you promptly and they are always quick to tend to your needs.
try another planet – The sushi here is highly overrated. The pieces are average-sized, and frequently chewy or stringy. Clearly, the quality of the fish is not that great. Decent atmosphere, but when there are other places right down the block, why not go somewhere else?
Stay Home to Enjoy Planet Sushi – I've had Planet Sushi delivered a couple of times and I've really enjoyed it. I went on-site for the first time last night and I left disappointed. The service was pretty slow, our food took forever to arrive at our table, we got the wrong order, and it wasn't even that good. It's too bad, because I really like the ambience of the place. I'll still give it another try, though.
Surprisingly good and affordable – Great everyday sushi that's surprisingly affordable and high quality. While it's no Tomoe, it has very good quality, spacious seating and sidewalk tables. Usually sushi is so expensive you eat it sparingly, but this changes the equation.
