I got here late so the party i was with was already sitted downstairs in this little japanese styled booth.. I was put off at first by the fact that i had to take off my shoes but the whole sitting indian style thing grew on me. Most of the food we had was on par with the rest of the japanese restaurants thats around st marks place. Their drinks were a little light on the alcohol but thats about it...Nothing here that stands out to much but still give it a shot

Pros: Good prices descently fast service

Cons: food doesnt really exceed any expectations

.

we went to this place based on some of the other reviews. we were aware there were good, and bad reviews. well, i have to say, put your trust in the bad reviews! this place stinks! it's too crowded, which creates an uncomfortable atmosphere. after a long day of work, you want to feel relaxed, not like a caged animal that's about to be served up. and the food was terrible. and the service also sucked. maybe because we 're not asian, which is the majority here. i don't know. we should have walked out on the bill cause i hate wasting money. if you're looking for great food & drink in this area, and great staff & atmosphere, definetly go to telephone bar on 2nd avenue. never had nothing but a wonderful time there.

I'm Japanese-American and lived in Japan for six years so this review may not represent the average American opinion. However, I often take my friends there (non-Japanese) and they usually love it. This is a great restaurant., but I see that not everybody thinks so and I guess that I can understand why.

First, the service is not great. Maybe it's because they're understaffed, but they're definitely not as attentive as they could be. Because they're from Japan this may be partially attributed to the fact that they're used to being called when needed. Second, the menu has a wide range of traditional and non-traditional Japanese bar foods, and if you're not very experienced with this particular type of Japanese cuisine, then you may not get what you expected. This is not a sushi joint. From the few times I've had the sushi here, I can say that it's fine. But don't come here if sushi's your goal.

When I go to Typhoon, I usually do most of the ordering for the group and they usually love the food. I'll list some of my favorites: chicken kara-age (amazing fried chicken, but be careful of the hot sauce), miso kalbi (beef slices cooked with miso), Saikoro steak (cubes of steak with a great sauce on the side and potatoes), omu-rice (kind of like a rice omelette, hence omelette-rice = omu-rice), korokke (potato croquettes), okonomiyaki (Japanese savory pancake, but you might want to ask them to hold the katsuo-bushi -- dried bonito flakes).

I like to go with a big group and reserve a private room downstairs. I just think it's more fun to all be in a small room together, but people often get tired of sitting on the floor so it's not for everybody. The temperature control in the restaurant isn't the best either, so it can get a little hot in the summer from time to time. I go for the food, so I can deal with the mediocre service. If you're the same way, then you may become a regular too.

Pros: Probably one of the best places in the city to go for Japanese bar food

Cons: Service is not that great

.

While I will admit that they get very busy and the service can get very slow during those busy nights, I have never, ever been treated rudely by any of the staff here and I've lost count of how many times I've eaten here. This place is very affordable especially considering how incredibly fresh the food is. If you want top-notch sushi and don't want to pay ridiculous prices, this is your place. As someone else mentioned, they cater to a mostly asian clientele, so don't expect Americanized food or you'll be disappointed. I can't imagine what kind of food the bad reviewers were expecting (one person mentioned Asian-American cuisine which tells me they don't have a clue about japanese food--maybe they should stick to the chinese take-out places or Teriyaki Boy). Someone else said the stuff in the local deli is better--also a hopelessly clueless person in my opinion. The fish here is as fresh as in some of the most expensive places in the city that I've been taken to. Masago looks so fresh and shiny that the eggs will burst if you touch them, unlike the shriveled up orange stuff you see at most cheap places. Unfortunately, last time I went here the menu had been downsized a bit, but the food was just as good as always and the place quickly got packed. Get there early if you want to beat the crowd or late if you want to miss it, and then maybe the service will be better. But remember they are all Japanese here, if you feel entitled or snobby or put off by people who don't speak perfect English waiting on you, you should probably go elsewhere. If you're friendly and patient, you'll leave very happy and want to come back.

Pros: the sushi is amazing, full bar with huge sake selection (hot and cold)

Cons: gets crowded, caters mostly to asian crowd/staff speaks limited English

Ignore the negative reviews!

If you are looking for good JAPANESE food, not american-japanese food, go here!

My friends and I were seated right away on a weekend. While on a holiday it was overbooked for our large party of 9.. a party of 4 is easy to find seats for. We ordered around 5 appetizers, 1 large dish, and 3 small dishes. We all shared since it was a lot of food. Sharing means we all picked from the same plate ala asian style! The bill came to about $40 with tax and tip. That is AMAZING for a Japanese restuarant.

We also ordered Sake, cocktails, and japanese beer. That bill came to around $41 dollars which amused us to no end! When I say we drank, I mean we had around 2 carafes of mid range sake, 3 cocktails, 2 sodas, 1 beer.

All in all, cheap and good food. I tried a beef dish... I believe it was like a soup. It was huge and excellent. My friends had squid, beef, veggies, fish. I have been to many american japanese restuarants and I loved this one even more!

a party of 2 w/o a reservation who came after us got seated before us. the food was horrible. we got a 'japanese pancake' that was just eggs and misc stuff tossed together and smothered with tonkatsu sauce. octupus balls that were dough smothered in tonkatsu sauce with a tiny chunk of octupus. we should have waited for a table at go across the street or gone to crif dogs instead

ive been here a few times and have always been happy. its farther east on st marks so its less crowded than yakitori/taisho, or kenka. pitchers of kirin are cheap (~$13). theres a great deal of variety and specials so get a bunch of small plates to go with the alcohol. i highly recommend their fried food! spring rolls ($5) are tasty fried translucent skins stuffed with vegetables and seafood. beef & potato croquettes ($5) are satisfyingly salty. slightly seared raw beef ($7) comes nicely marinated and with a side of spicy sauce. omu rice (chicken onion tomato rice wrapped in an omelette) is a cheap ($9) way to fill up. sushi is ordinary stick with the regular bar food. service is attentive. yesterday, 3 of us split 5 dishes and a pitcher and the bill came out to be $50 (including tax and tip). not bad at all!

Pros: spring rolls, inexpensive, variety

The negative reviews stunned me.. I love Typhoon. I've always found the staff very polite, but maybe that's because I make an effort to pronounce dishes correctly and be polite back. I can imagine if you just want some "sushi" (and you think "sushi" = maki) and "teriyaki," then yeah, you're going to be disappointed. But the fact that the restaurant is always filled with Japanese should indicate how good it is.

Best of all, they have an extensive selection of sake and all of their liquor is really well-priced. This is the only restaurant I've found in the city so far that serves shochu cocktails.. and they're $4.50-6.00 each! That's one of the cheapest cocktails in New York. If you want a treat, try the momohai (white peach flavoured shochu cocktail), because it is to die for.

I used to trust City Search reviews but now I don't know. My bf and I read some of the good reviews on here and decided to check out Typhoon. Instead of a great evening out dining on some highly anticipated Asian-American cuisine, we ended up having one of the most frustrating, teeth-grinding, disappointing night of our lives. To top it off, the food was HORRIBLE! First of all, I think we could've seen Haley's Comet..TWICE..during the time we waited for our food. That wouldve been fine if the service was there to make up for it but the staff was INCREDIBLY rude! Finally, when our food came, it was so unpalatable that I wouldnt even dare to feed it to wild animals. I feel bad whenever I have to do this but I just feel like I have to warn other diners about this restaurant.

Cons: long wait, rude service, bad food

.

Don't let the long wait fool you. The reason for the long wait is due to the uncomfortably small space. The staff is INCREDIBLY RUDE and once you are seated your food will take a very long time to prepare (even if the restaurant is partially empty). Once we got our food, it wasn't any better than any sushi you would get at your local deli. My out of town guests were treated with the utmost disregard and we all had a very unpleasent experience. If you are a masochist and wanted to be treated with humiliation and with bad food, then this is the place for you. If not -- go to any other reputable resturant in the city.

My bf and I love the food. The fresh slice of beef for the shabu shabu with great sauce--one is a radish-type of soy sauce, for $35. It's good for 2 people. Juicy fresh clams cooked in rice-wine for $8 (more than a dozen ); it has the best nabiyaki udon in the area with great soup base. The udon isnt the kind you can get in any Asian markets. Salmon cherishi (in half-size) is good portion with hugh chuck of fresh salmon for about $8 as well. I'd recommend to order the hot food--really is comfort food
The atmosphere is noisy and , at times, some people can be rowdy after they're bit drunk. Bad ventilation so it'd be the best to go there in winter. ALl in all, I would recommend to anyone who is looking for food that isnt fancy but cheap to comfort your stomach

By the crowds of Japanese students, you can tell that this is the place to eat - it's a lot of fun, you can try lots of different things and you really experience Japanese-style snack food. Do yourself a favor though, if you want sushi, go somewhere else. Order the whole fried flounder instead.

We've been here several times. The food is consistently good, not to mention cheap. The service is good to great- always friendly. The one time there was a mistake with our order they brought out complimentary dishes while we waited! The decor is nothing special, but the private little party rooms look like fun if you come with a small group... Recommended. We can always count on them!

The problem with most of the reviewers is that they don't understand Japanese Pub Food. It's greasy, non-pretentious, comfort food. The sushi there is average at best but why on earth would you go to Typhoon for good sushi? That's like going to an Irish Pub and expecting great steak! Get the rice bowls or the noodles, a cheap bottle of sake, and relax! The service is a little slow but they are always very polite. I lived in Japan for 5 years and this place brings me right back. (And yes...croquettes are always fried.)

The night we went, service could not be worse. We couldn't get seated until everybody showed up. It would be reasonable, except it was 6pm and the place was literally empty. Food was only so-so. Honestly, with such intense competition around the neighborhood, I would not recommend this restaurant to people. I went there several times and never learned to like it. There are many more better places to go with better food, much better service, nicer ambience and decor.

typhoon is by far one of the best japanese restaurants in the city. who cares whether the service is not excellent. it's the food that really matters. i had various dishes with two other friends- steak cubes, sashimi, sushi, seaweed salad and more...let me just tell you that the sushi and sashimi melted in my mouth like butter. the texture of the fish is indescribable. go try it yourself. the portions are not generous but the quality of the food makes up for it.

A pretty nice little place in the center of the village. Offers a nice array of appetizers and decent sushi for reasonable prices. Try the stir fried cube steak, shabu sahbu, or the Oden, or anything else you want to try on the menu.

So strange to read all the awful reviews here! Are we talking about the same place? I love Typhoon! My fiance and I have been going here for the last five years. We're regulars and although they've changed the manager once and have had several different waitresses/barstaff, the place remains one of our favorite, dependable eatery. The ambiance is great! The sushi chef, Hide, is knowledgeable and friendly, all the waitstaff knows us and remembers our names. The current bartender/hostess has improved a great deal from when she first started. You will definitely get good food for a great deal. It's a find in this overly priced, ostentatious city full of bad restaurants.

My friends and I love this place, so it makes me sad that some of the servers have ruined meals. Yea, a few of them CAN suck (one waitress comes to mind), but others (namely, Satoshi and Ken) are always cool. And no, the food isn't revelatory, but who wants it to be? It's good, authentic Japanese pub grub for cheap, and they serve it up to a laid-back crowd sweetly devoid of posers. Oh, and to the person who complained that her croquettes were fried: try looking up the definition for croquette. lol

Ambience - very nice. Looks like I've stepped back into a hacienda. Shame about the food and service. Yes there was a party going on at the time but it was only around 10 people. So why did it take over an hour for me to get my sushi (and I'd only ordered a few rolls). And finally when it did arrive it was very vey average. In essence - there's better places than this!

I can't believe that those reviews are actually about the same restaurant. My boyfriend and I went there a couple weeks ago, after reading the great reviews below, and were extremely disappointed. Not only was the food not a ten, it was horrible. The crab croquettes were fried and completely lacking in crabmeat, our meat appetizer was dripping with grease and mostly fatty, and our main course was mushy rice drowned in some sauce with the consistency of baby food. We took one bite of that, and left the rest uneaten. I never write reviews, but I'd like to save someone else the same mistake of going to this place.

This is my favorite Japanese restaurant in the city. I probably go about once a week for the amazing Japas (tapas sized innovative Japanese dishes) and everyone I take gets totally hooked. Even my friends visiting from Japan love this place! Try their taka rice, saikoro beef cube steak, crab croquettes, avocado salad with alaskan king crab, karei kara (whole fried flounder with ponzu sauce), mentai spaghetti, udon, super dynamite, nasu hamburg (japanese eggplant parm), el roll (shrimp and chicken wrapped in shiso leaf and spring roll wrap), sesame sauce soba, the list is endless. Finish the meal with the tempura ice cream with rum sauce. Not to mention, your wallet will be pleasantly surprised.

Pros: Inexpensive, Smoking section, INCREDIBLE FOOD!
