The Upper West Side's funkiest sushi house has been drawing fans since 1986 with its sumptuous sushi and sashimi and a loopy party atmosphere. Don’t expect Zen serenity—this place rocks to a throbbing techno beat with disco-like décor of black walls accented by red and purple spotlights, white table-clothed tables, life-sized street lamps, and circuit board sculptures that glow. The well-heeled casual crowd can be boisterous, fueled by neon-hued cocktails with names like Mojito Chan, Golden Geisha, and Bloody Mariko. A dozen sakés are also available. But the true attraction is the food. Start with the shrimp and vegetable tempura that features fried, panko-crusted crustaceans, as well as morsels of broccoli, carrot, sweet potato, and pumpkin. Also consider the Negimaki, bursting with scallions. All sushi and sashimi selections are expertly prepared and artfully presented. The special rolls are standouts, especially the Striped Roll with tuna and avocado and alternating stripes of wasabi tobiko and orange tobiko, and the Crazy Tuna Roll of seared peppered tuna, and avocado, and topped with spicy tuna. For a place that doesn’t take itself too seriously, this is serious eats.


Let the server know it's your birthday and at meal's end you'll be treated to ice cream tempura in strawberry sauce crowned with sparklers accompanied by a crowd-stopping rendition of the Olympics theme music.
