There are a few authentic and afordable sushi spots in the city and this is certainly one of them! I would absolutely take Japanese friends here and they'd love it!

ISO Reborn!!!

I was devastated when ISO closed down. Needless to say, I was delighted to discover it has been reborn as Kanoyama. Some describe it as Nobu on a budget - I wouldn't go that far but I love this place for the sushi and sashimi. It is by far the best value you can find in the city for such high quality, fresh raw fish. Even the raw shrimp is sweet, succulent and just the right texture - to me, the true measure of the overall freshness of the fish. The miso cod is also excellent and the menu has a good selection of appetizers and other dishes but for me its all about the raw fish. Like Iso, it gets crowded and noisy and if you go after 8pm, you have to wait. Its worth it - wish they deliver!!!

so happy that some Iso chefs decided to open up Koi! the fish is of the same reliably good quality. the prices are definitely reasonable. the new wait staff is friendly. the sea eel, salmon and yellowtail are mouth-watering. the decor is even nicer than before. this is by far the best sushi in New York City. run by real Japanese chefs, not Chinese owners who think they can pull off sushi. it's never good quality fish, and hey I'm Chinese. Thank goodness for Koi!
