Recommended by Japanese friends of ours, we have made this our "go-to" place for sushi, and nowhere else will do. I can't give it five stars due to the cramped nature of the tables, but we've only had excellent service and superb food. Whether you...More

Don't expect anything, but attentive service and fresh well prepared sushi, sashimi and japanese food. Simple digs in strip mall location, but don't be fooled. It's one of the best in the category on the Island. Clean, good and perfect for lunch or dinner. Both...More

Great sushi. Have gone there several times and have thoroughly enjoyed every time. The food is great. The fish is very fresh. Would recommend this place to anyone. Have taken others, including business partners to this restaurant.

The food is still very good but the quality of the service has really dropped off! Everything from start to finish takes way too long and we've experienced this at lunch & dinner. It's bad enough that they don't take reservations and the wait to...More

Though this may not look like much from the outside, the food was some of the best ever. Can't wait to go back on my next trip to Long Island to continue to work my way through the entire menu.

Really, what do you go for at a restaurant, right? So, in regards to the food, this restaurant, is really quite delicious. It isn't the fanciest of places, although quite adequate for a lovely night out. You won't be disappointed with the food, that's for...More

On multiple occasions I've either been given the wrong carryout order or items were missing. The servers act as if you're doing them a favor coming to their establishment. The sushi is good, but not worth the attitude you get. My advice, go to Aji.

Those prices on trip adviser are incorrect. the sushi/sashimi ala carter is much higher on the real menu. They do have some good lunch specials for sashimi or sushi around $15 but its more at dinner -
