They were really kind to us. They served a very good meal. You can sit at the bar and watch how they prepare the sushies. Especially matcha tiramisu was amazing.

You got to know it's good when you see Japanese expats in a sushi joint. That's what we witnessed here. We were quickly greeted and seated. With the weather being what it was, we opted to sit outside. We ordered 3 rolls and started with...More

This was the ultimate Japanese food! After 35 years of experiencing the Japanese kitchen, this was the best ever! The location and the atmosphere is maybe not the best, but the food is! All newyorkers and tourist try this restaurant!

Shinbashi is not a fancy restaurant, and at first glance, their main dining area appears to be very plain. However, we were pleasantly surprised with their sake selection and variety of entrees. From nigiri sushi and specialty rolls, to tempura and soba, to hot pot...More

This was a random selection based on a quick search and good reviews. It's not as 5 star as it looks in the pictures and lacks a bit of ambience but great service and great sushi and didn't break the bank. Will definitely go back.

I was invited by a business colleague who knows I like Japanese food. The food was excellent if not top notch, the service was fine. The only thing that made this very good instead of excellent overall was the sterile ambiance - lighting is a...More
