For the money, truly great. Of course it's not Blue Ribbon or Nobu. What it is is a simple neighborhood sushi place, and BYOB too.

Good Not Great, But Fantastic Value

Come to Cherin expecting fairly good sushi and rolls at a fantastic price. I like this place because it is much better than any of the other dirt cheap sushi places around. The decor is reasonable, just passable for a date spot. The service is slow but friendly. It isn't going to be the best sushi you've ever had, but you don't need to be afraid of the food (which is not something you can say for most cheap sushi), and actually I quite like the rolls. Come for the early bird special.

I went with a larger group of friends, and we did the BYOB, stopping at the Trader Joe's wine store on the way. I knew the prices of this place were low, but couldn't quite believe how inexpensive it was, especially in NYC. A little hesitant about what to expect, I ordered three specialty roles. They were fabulous! Everything was good, and the presentation was nice as well. We ordered appetizers as well and were impressed by the total of the bill for seven people -- so inexpensive! I'll definitely keep this in mind for when I have out-of-towners come visit me.

Worst sushi in Manhattan

I was shocked after waiting 45 minutes for some basic rolls and sashimi how inedible the food was. The tuna Sashimi was shredded and did not taste like food, it was like garbarge. The sushi rolls had some crazy gluey rice that you couldnt chew, and the green salad was drenched in so much dressing you could not even tell it was green. I really dont understand how this place is in business maybe because the prices are so cheap...but even if it was free... do not go!! You've been warned.

Horrible Experience

This is such an awful place. Went here with one of my friend because of such good reviews online, and we ordered the 3 rolls offer. It's cheap, but the sushi is horrible. Each piece is super small that every roll taste just the same. You can't even taste what's inside the roll. If you want to have a real sushi, I think it's worth to pay more than just going to this kind of place. It was such an unsatisfying meal.

Being from Philadelphia, I cannot speak to the quality of Cherin compared to other New York restaurants, but I can say that I was expecting Cherin to be unbelievably over priced having had the great meal I ate. I was sorely mistaken, the sushi was absolutely perfect and the price was right on. The help there is fantastic, unbelievably kind and they make you feel good about giving them your business. The fish was fresh and the sake was good. I strongly recommend this restaurant to any New Yorkers who are interested in some excellent sushi at a better price. As for food recommendations, the emily roll is my favorite, the parker roll is good but Id recommend that two people take down that big boy...

Best fish in the village

While many in NYC are willing to pay big bucks for sushi that isn't half as good as it should be, Cherin does the opposite. You get tons of fish for such a small price it should be illegal. The fish to rice ratio and is the best in the city and they offer friendly service that will not rush you out if you are there if you are a large group of people. Outside of the run of the mill rolls that you can find at most sushi places, Cherin has many unique offers that involve Banana, mango, and a rice type crunch that makes the roll very tastey. You can't beat the prices at this place for the quality of fish you get....and quantity! I've been back to try most of the rolls and have yet to find one I wouldn't order again. Parker, Emily, Joe, and Gillian are my personal fav's.
