A nice little cozy place for sushi lovers. Be prepared to wait since they are quite popular. Fresh sushi, great service. You might even spot famous chefs dine here. Very satisfied.

They are so many other sushi restaurants in NYC, however, Tomoe Sushi is a staple of New York City. Fresh sushi and one can taste the freshness of their fish and other ingredients. Be prepared to stand in a cue, but if you don’t meet a cue outside that means you are in luck. Are you a sushi person and visiting New York then it’s a must visit. If I can remember they usually don’t take reservations but call ahead to double check. Enjoy.

Forget the fusion sushi, in here you will find the true sushi from Japan.
The quality of the fish is fenomenal!
The restaurante it’s really small, they don’t accept reservations, so me come early.
They only accept maximum of 5 people.
The price it’s around 70$ to 110$ per person.

So, this is supposed to be (one of) the best Sushi restaurants in New York? Well, we HAD to try it when we spent a long weekend in the city. The restaurant itself does not appear fancy or overly attractive from the outside at all. We got here during the break between lunch ('til 3 p.m.) and dinner (from 5 p.m.) and met some of the staff outside. We asked about reservations and were told that they took no reservations (anymore). Well, since we knew from other reviews, that being early helps getting a table so we returned just on time, shortly after their opening at 5 p.m. and the room was already full.
The inside of the restaurant is as spectacular as a post office - not at all. It is comfortable though, and appears to follow Japanese "plain" style. There are only 8 or 10 tables, if I counted right, most of them for 2 persons. The walls are full of self written posters.

I've been to a lot of Japanese restaurants, and some of the "best" turned out to be hyped mediocre restaurants only. I was expecting good food though after seeing them work behind the counter. The fish they were using seemed to be fresh, other ingredients as well. All Sushi was rolled/ cut/ prepared manually and with precision...
We ordered Sashimi Salad (Sake) and Ebi Tempura for starters and their Sushi menu with Miso Soup. The fish (salad) was perfectly seasoned with only a little bit of soy sauce, the tempura was traditional (not sweetened, not greasy) and the Sushi they brought us indeed one of the best I've ever had. The fish was tender and extremely tasty, the rice with the typical, discreet taste of vinegar and the Wasabi brought me to tears (in a positive way!). Yes, this was definitively among the best Sushi I ever had.
本当に旨い寿司、たぶん 一番の寿司だった。

I love this little restaurant. Must get there before 6-7pm otherwise there's always a line. Great tempura, soups and rolls. Small inside but worth it. In the heart of the village lots to do after you eat.
