Fodor's Review

Arguably the best sushi restaurant in the East Village, this tiny space gleams in a minefield of cheap, often inferior sushi houses. The futuristic bamboo tunnel of a dining room is gorgeous, but try to nab a place at the sushi bar and put yourself in the hands of sushi master Yoshi Kousaka. The five-course omakase, or chef's menu, starts at $125. (A less expensive sushi or sashimi omakase is $75.) You are served only what's freshest and best.
