They try to stand out from other sushi places by not actually serving real sushi and the quality of the fish was not so great. They over marinate their sushi in random flavors so that you can't tell.

Really like this place - the sushi is always fresh and the atmosphere is great (albeit very dark). Try the "Spicy McBomb" - you can't go wrong. I like this place so much that you will find me there on a weekly basis.

Pros: Service, Ambiance, Food

all foods are very good and creative yet stay with original Japanese food. Service is very good and price is reasonable. I can relax there and have a good time with my friends and boyfriend. I definitely go back there!

Cute place.
2 worst mojitos, EVER. Indescribable.
Edamame tasted like pop corn. Was perhaps buttered. The second bowl for throwing away the peels still had old food bits in it. Bad sign.
Extremely sweet service. Couldn't make ourselves tell them the food absolutely sucked. Which is maybe why we got:
"Japanese curry" which was essentially bland, chewy stew splashed on some rice.
Bozu style sushi, which means it had none of the essentials (ginger - soy sauce was pre-wasabified, which I actually kinda liked). Personally sort-of liked the sushi, but we found the use of long grain rice a bit, uhm, surprising. Most puffy rolls we've ever experienced. At least it was fresh.
Bozu Salad tasted exactly like Armani Eau De Toilette smelled in the 80's. Somewhat disturbing.

Was one of these places where you just can't wait to get out. It was just all wrong - but I completely disagree that the service was bad.. I felt a bit bad for the service staff in fact, that is, until I saw the check.

it's friday and almost midnight. my bf and i go to bozu to eat. we live in williamsburg/greenpoint, so it was with some trepidation we ventured out on a friday in our own 'hood, but we were hungry and wanted to try Bozu as it was recommended to us. "Two"...."we cant seat you inside"....."what about that four-top over there"....."No it's friday night"...."huh? the street's empty, nobody's coming"
"No (with annoying smile)...... what? "Ok, later lady...."

Note to Bamboozle: give up a table for two paying customers at midnight....if a four party comes in, put them outside, or at the table that would have opened by the time they MAYBE came in. seriously, you just lost a local customer and ANYONE i will tell about your restaurant. I wouldnt really care if it werent for the smarmy sh^t eating grin you served it to me with. Welcome to MY neighborhood, now please leave with the rest of the clowns who've invaded with you.....

I went here about a month ago, and thought it seemed cool at first, but it was just ok. Their sushi bombs were interesting, but it seemed like they were just trying too hard to differentiate themselves from the surrounding Asian restaurants. I will admit that their normal sushi was very good and their hamburg steak was savory, but it was basically a small, spicy hamburger. The main downside was that the parties sitting on either side of us were the typical ultra-hipster people who thought they were very intellectual, but were not. It seemed from looking around that most of the people there were the same way. The best thing about this place was that it helped us find this awesome bar on the corner, which I believe was just called "The Bar".

Pros: Good sushi

Great dishes, service & cocktails. Will go back for sure. Tuna tar tar was amazing. Nice to eat this genre of food as tapas -- makes for a unique dining experience. Ambiance fabulous.

This Williamsburg eatery bills itself as a Japanese tapas lounge. But that would be understating the scope of its offerings. The homey atmosphere---complete with swaths of dark wood and exposed brick walls---is best taken in at the…
