My wife had the udon noodle soup with breaded dipped vegetables; I had the breaded dipped vegetables and shrimp, light and delicious; My daughter a full plate of sushi. A fine... More

The restaurant has a modern style. It is not that small like others in Amsterdam Avenue. The wall consists of small wood piece in different size. It looks like a Yenga game. The restaurant was also not that noisy. We had sushi. Excellent! There are many sushi places in the neighborhood, but I can hardly imagine that there is a... More

Enjoyed Momoya with friends... Clean, airy restaurant... Fresh sushi, well prepared and creatively presented... Friendly and professional staff... Great experience. This sushi restaurant is just a few doors down from one of my favorite sushi spots on the upper west side... I'm surprised Momoya took the risk to open a restaurant on the same block... Definitely a battle of the... More

Fresh food that looks and tastes great. Generous portions at reasonable prices. "A" sanitation rating, and I can see why. I sat at the sushi bar and if a waiter noticed something out of place on the dish, he pointed to it and one of the chefs would fix it with his gloved hand (which is the right way to... More

I was convinced to try this place due to good ratings I saw it received. I ordered out and my order was ready pretty soon after I arrived. While I was waiting I noticed the place looked quite nice, with clean décor and some space between tables. The people I encountered were nice and courteous. The sushi itself wasn't bad... More

Fish is amazing, so tasty. It's very good and price is correct for the quantity. You can discover new type of raw fish

This is Japanese with a youthful vibe. The appetizers are all good (popcorn shrimp Japanese style among them) and the sushi and maki rolls are fresh and well-presented.

I've been visiting the upper west side for years and this was my first experience at Momoya Sushi. It won't be my last. There is another location in Chelsea and, if the food is as good, I'll like that store, too! The ambiance is modern, upscale, but comfortable and cozy, inasmuch as the tables are close enough that you can... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
