A budget gem with classic and fusion sushi rolls.

9 E. 17th St., New York, NY, 10003



Known For

The lowdown

This mellow spot stands out for its casualness amid Union Square’s menagerie of congested, boisterous eateries. The Hotter Than Summer roll blends yellowtail with a kick of jalapeño, and slightly tangy Eye Candy rolls have a hint of caviar complemented by a sweet finish. Various tempura and smoked-salmon rolls court the sushi-averse with familiar flavors. For cooked food, heaping portions of salmon teriyaki with a healthy dose of sauce plus miso soup and rice is a filling, budget option.
