Good food, horrible service! – Although the quality of their service is below average, I've been to Kodama more than several times because the food is good and it's conveniently located. Kodama's staff are usually unfriendly and pokerfaced at best. However, there is this one waitress that seems to have personal problems with me. Maybe too much tip bothers her and she'd rather be under-tipped? I'd ignore her bad service but last time I was there, it was too obvious that she didn't want to wait our table. She intentionally ignored my call, it took us way longer than usual to get our food. Other people who came after us were leaving while we were waiting for food. I am not going back to this restaurant again. It almost ruined my evening and I had to wonder if she put anything other than eatable in my food. Watch out for waitress server id #4!
Get the spicy tuna roll! – I go to Kodama at least once a month. I'm addicted to the spicy tuna rolls and a newer one called Canadian. They are a bit expensive, but I really enjoy the food.
Try the oyster rolls! – I go to kodama at least once a month. The sushi is amazing as well as the grilled calamari appetizer. One must try the oyster tempura rolls and also the scallop rolls. Great service and amazing food!
The other raters drank too much sake. – Good food?? The salmon teriyaki was served cold, and the sushi portions were moderate to skimpy. Those who rave about the food must not realize there are many other Japanese choices. In my own outer borough neighborhood, the food is MUCH better.
Great service?? Our waiter was condescending and rude. He did nothing to earn a tip, but he gave us the check with a 15% tip already included. Why? Because my guests were all French speakers. That was the policy explained by the manager.
Try another restaurant!!
SUSHI_SERVICE – Rating on the 3rd av (btw 83/84)This is probably the best neighborhood sushi place around. It is very relaxed and the people here are always happy to see you. The fish is fresh and the daily specials are always very traditional. From the Sushi to the green tea you will not be dissapointed
Great food, great service – I eat at the Kodama restaurant on 3rd ave between 83rd and 84th street. The food tastes great and they give you a lot of it for your money. The staff is also very helpful and kind. They even offer your warm towels to clean your hands with before you eat. Their lunch prices are especially good.
