This restaurant is owned by Sachi, who I believe is the hostess/waitress that you see when you walk in. She is also very likely to wait on you. The place can sometimes smell a little fishy, and the service can be very hit or miss, depending on how busy it is, but the food is overall pretty good. The lunch specials are okay, but dinners can be a little pricey for the quality. It's a big hangout for Mount Sinai hospital staff as it's one of the few nearby Japanese restaurants.

Despite a listed opening time of 4pm on Sundays, their door did not open until closer to 5. The waitress who served us was very friendly, but hardly spoke or understood english. The selection of sushi on their menu was curiously miniscule, so my fiancee and I took the invitation on the top of the menu to order a custom-built roll as our agenda. How hard is it to build a roll with spicy tuna, spicy hamachi and unagi... let alone order it? Well apparently at Sachi, the answer is, "Very hard." The waitress was unsure of how to take the order, and even bothered to ask how to make it. She had to consult the manager and the sushi chef to even check if it was possible. Since she couldn't understand english very well, we had to use hand gestures and drawings to communicate. It was a circus. Imagine my hesitation in ordering a second custom roll. We didn't bother ordering anything more as we resolved to go elsewhere after we were done, for some competent service.

When the rolls came, they were giant, clumsy, unseasoned offerings. What? When ordering a custom roll, do I have to specify that maybe I want some extra flavor in it? I'm pretty sure that every other sushi chef I've custom ordered a roll from has made some attempt to turn a basic list of ingredients into something more than a lump of fish and rice. This was very uninspired. On top of that, we were charged $30 for our 2 custom rolls. If I am going to pay that much for 2 sushi rolls, it better be special. It wasn't.

The sushi at this restaurant is one of a kind. Fish is very fresh and pieces are served in good portions. If you are sushi lover, I definitely recommend to sit at the sushi bar. The veteran chef will not let your expectation down. You might want to try some of the seasonal fish. Also, they serve very traditional japanese food you don't see at other Japanese restaurants. Service is attentive and makes you feel at home. Born and raised in Japan, I would give Sachi a "True Japanese Cusine."

Marvelous sushi--subtle, precise, preparation, seasoning, and composition. The chef eschews fads and trends; he can do more with a little lemon, salt, ginger, and shisu than most people do with a kitchen full of exotic condiments.

Tamago has a perfect texture--showing attention to detail in preparation. Soup is from scratch and you taste the difference. Mackerel and sardines are always perfectly cured based on their fat and moisture content. I have never had a bad dish at Sachi, and I have had many sublime dishes--just stunningly perfect combinations of great fish and simple flavorings, thoughtfully arranged on perfectly prepared rice.

Sit at the sushi bar and ask the chef to select your dishes. Sample the selection of sakes. And enjoy
a "mom and pop" shop run by two of the nicest people you will ever meet, with jazz in the background!

What more could you ask for?

Sachi is a really good sushi restaurant. Your not going to find the huge variety of fish, like in the Sushi District in SOHO, but this qaint neighborhood has it's resident King. They have a few delicious types of toro, and they know how to toast Eel just right. The $ are a little steep, and the place is a dump, but the food is pretty solid.

Sachi has good points and bad points. The menu has a very few variety of fish, the same as any grocery store, but the fish is fresh, and served in very large slices. The neighborhood is on the upper East side, near Museum Row, it's quiet, and clean. The rolls are the same as any budget sushi house, and are served far too large, and cannot be eaten in one bite, as sushi is supposed to be consumed, but the rice is generaly kept warm and moist which is a big plus. The staff is friendly and polite, but the restaurant is ragedy and cheap. For a neighborhood restaurant Sachi is pretty good, but they don't have any competition nearby, so they probably won't improve.

We have dined at Sachi, either at a table or at the bar at least a dozen times (and probably more) as we live close by and I have NEVER had a lackluster meal there. The sushi and sashimi are reliably fresh and delicious, the service always courteous and cordial and (I don't know what that previous reviewer was talking about) terrific jazz (Parker, Miles, Billie) is invariably playing in the background. Don't come for ambience -- come for food impeccably prepared with care and prices that should make many of the more expensive but obviously inferior sushi dens hang their collective heads in shame.

While obviously not in the same class as Blue Ribbon Sushi or Tomoe, Sachi is a great sushi restaurant that many believe to be far superior to Kuruma Zushi, Jewel Bako, and even Yama.

They have wonderful Toro of Tuna, Salmon, and Yellow Tail. The staff is pretty good, but the location stinks, way up on the upper, upper East side. If they were in SOHO, in the Sushi District they'd make a ton of money. This is a really good sushi restaurant.

Forget overpriced and overtrendy Nobu, Yama, etc. For a good value and probably the best and freshest sushi in town, go to Sachi Rest.
