When you see ex-pats dining at an ethnic restaurant, you're in for a treat. It's a hidden gem on the UES and not overhyped. Furthermore, unlike 70% of the Japanese restaurants in UES/UWS, it's not run by Chinese management so you won't

Pros: Japanese ex-pats dine here

Cons: small sushi bar; only serve soft alcohol (wine, beer, sake) but no cocktails

If you like sushi Gajyumaru is the place to go. They use only the freshest fish and serve perfection. Everything on the menu is delicious - including their non-sushi items. I've ordered take-out from here as well - just as good.

I live upstairs from this place, and it's great. Wonderful food, service, and atmosphere. It's very zen inside-- it's even quiet, which is quite a feat, given it's on First Avenue and there are always loud trucks passing by. The fish is

Pros: quiet, relaxing, delicious food, nice staff, great for delivery also

Run by Japanese, very authentic. I'd say better than Sushi of Gari. Plenty of traditional Jse appertizer. Comfy seatings. Not your regular sushi joint. Service is exceptional. Theyre very attentive, but not annoying and definitely dont intrude in our conversations. This place is pretty small, so I wouldnt recommend bringing a group larger than 6 people at a time.

PROS: authentic Japanese food, fresh
CONS: slightly expensive.

This place has consistently good sushi at an affordable price. THe best deal is the sushi for two which considering the solid quality of the sushi is $55. It's more than enough for two people.

At any other place, you would have to pay

I live in the neighborhood and I visit this restaurant once a week. The sushi is always fresh and full of flavor, buttery and delicious. The appetizers and specials such as homemade tofu, tuna with miso paste, and vinegared crab are

Since this place opened, we have been regulars - at least once a week. The chicken nanban is addictive and they really know how to cook udon the right way. Sushi is almost as good as in Tsukiji. I will only eat the chirashi from this

Pros: fresh sushi, excellent service, intimate

This is the best sushi place on the Upper E and one of the best sushi places in the City. In fact, it is one of the few things that makes living on the Upper E bearable. Crab Shumai rocks! Pumpkin pudding is the best desert I've ever

Pros: Best Sushi, Great Desert, Good Service

Cons: Can't get loud, Small space, Upper East Side

The sushi/sashimi is on a different level from most places. Slightly pricey if you order by piece, but very reasonable for a chef selection.
The place is small, but very charming with good service.

This elegantly spartan Japanese bistro declares its multifaceted superiority on an amusingly serious placard outside its entrance, and consistently makes good on its promises. Run by a traditional sushi chef and a…
