I have been going to Naka Sushi in Manalapan since the week it opened. Sushi is also by far my favorite food, I eat sushi at least 4 times a week no exaggeration. That being said I have to say that Naka Sushi is a hidden gem. Once seated by Eddie or his wife you will realize that this isn't the sushi you'd get at other places in town. Eddie uses high quality Japanese ingredients, and is well reluctant to stray from the way he was taught sushi is supposed to be made. He is strict about rules so be warned don't expect the fancy rolls and American style Japanese dishes that they would give you at Kyoto or Konbu. However, his authentic creations such as dried fish rolls, made from bonito flakes and Japanese mayonnaise are unbelievable, add seasonal spanish mackerel and I have to say that this roll tops even those top tier sushi restaurants in the city. I honestly can say that the sushi at Naka is the closest to the sushi at the counter of the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo. Other authentic dishes include dombury a bowl with sushi rice on the bottom and an assortment of sushi items on top. I would HIGHLY recommend barichirachi a or eggs dom, both VERY filling, and reasonably priced. This authentic mom and pop sushi joint remains one of my favorites go there often and get to know them and although sometimes you may be discouraged by lackluster service I guarantee you'll be coming back!

I never tried sushi before until my friend pretty much forced me to go to Naka Sushi with her. (I do not eat seafood).

It is a very little place in the Yorktown Plaza - which gives it a very personable feel. We were seated immediately.

I had the vegetable rolls (cucumber & avocado) and the Chicken Tempora Rolls. I can honestly say it was the most delicious things I have ever ingested. Their house salad is also amazing - the house dressing is extremely tasty.

The service is as quick as possible. It usually takes 10-15 minutes to get your sushi once you've been seated, because they make it fresh and in front of you.

I find myself visiting Naka Sushi almost weekly and craving it when I am away at college.

The only con to Naka Sushi is that it is very expensive. I'd estimate about $1/ 1 indiv. sushi roll. It adds up quickly, because I can sometimes eat 12 sushi rolls...but when isn't sushi expensive?

I've had the shrimp tempura roll here quite a few times as well as the spicy tuna. The sushi itself is small, but very tasty... but not worth the price. It's a cute restaurant, but a little too expensive and not worth it.
