  • Chez O.Delicious as expected. IWe were unsure of the ice cream sandwich dessert but really enjoyed it. If you're stuffed and want a lighter dessert that's still satisfying this is it!

  • Jess BFood and ambiance are great but sooooo overpriced. $20 for 8 tiny tuna rolls??? Two apps, two drinks and two rolls cost my friend and $100+. Enjoyable but not worth cost

    33333 by Jess B

  • FINVOGUE DWhen in NY, I must have EN's salmon rice bowl. Rice is cooked with salmon for 40 min. It's come with roe & shredded shiso. It's insanely simple but tragically delicious. Cheaper option: garlic rice.

    55555 by Roula H.

  • Emily SSkip the sushi and share a few traditional Japanese dishes instead--the freshly scooped tofu is not to miss and the rice pots are great too.

    55555 by Emily S

    55555 by Gabriel H.

    55555 by Sherry L.

  • Elio A.The space is really cool: high ceilings, cozy furniture and no music (shocker!). The food was really good: we tried the fried tofu and it was mind blowing. Then salmon rice and another tofu salad.

    55555 by Elio A.

    55555 by Stacey

  • NancerellaThis is truly one of my favorite place in Manhattan... If you go, you MUST order the home made tofu (warm version) and Salmon Rice pot!!! Amazing!!!!

    55555 by Nancerella

    55555 by Ailie C.

  • Ina LiGorgeous interior and all food beautifully cooked. Worth the price. Must try the warm house tofu!

    55555 by Ina Li

  • Ivy GanDo not order sashimi - the chutoro was not very fresh. Great ambience though.

    55555 by Ivy Gan

  • Patricia L.Sushi trying too hard to be West Village. Appetizers are impressively over-salted, rolls are on par with your standard Seamless takeout order. If you're looking for Japanese, head elsewhere.

    55555 by Vic Z.

    22222 by Brian P.

  • Anuj M.Resto is extremely well lit at lunch with its large windows on the corner of hudson and leroy. The lunch sets offer great value vs. the dinner menu. The sashimi set was expertly done and satisfying.
