basicalIy sushi and sashimi are worthy to try, and their lunch boxes. i loved it the first 2 times eating there, just last time I found hair in my rice... a big turn-off. guess that happens to almost every restaurant though.

Pros: sushi

Cons: sanitation

I live around the corner and I've tried this place twice. Both times there were flies EVERYWHERE! It was the middle of Winter as well. I was waving them away so much it looked as if I was speaking in sign language to my Japanese wife. For a restaurant serving raw fish this is just a complete no no. Food and service was mediocre at best but the environment was intolerable.

I used to live around this neighboorhood and let me tell you i still crave their sushi. Although the rolls (spicy tubna roll) are small they are really delicious. Delivery is great, going there is good too.

ordered sushi for delivery but a couple of the pieces were of lower quality than expected. after calling them to tell them about it, they went out of their way to make sure that everything was resolved to my satisfaction (as well as their standards). since they take delivery of fresh fish every day, i was informed by them that it was probably a supplier issue and that they would take up the issue with them. everything else in the order was quite good as usual. one of the best sushi places in murray hill.

My boyfriend and I had sushi here and we truly enjoyed our meal. The fish were fresh and well prepared and eventhough you won't expect to see fancy rolls and other specialties, the selections are well rounded and typical of a Japanese sushi joint. We were seated on the first floor and we would love to try the second floor the next time we are here.

Our waitress was simply wonderful and very accomodating. She always have a smile on her face and made us feel very special. Her service was attentive and pleasant.

Overall, we love it here and would come back often!

Waitress didnt know what shellfish was! How can you work at a restaurant that serves seafood, and not know what one of the biggest allergies is? She brought me out shrimp... even after i specifically told her i was allergic. Beware to otheres with allergies. The food was average, nothing to really rant or rave about... just typical.

a friend took me there bc he enjoyed his first visit there. i ordered the tempura udon and honestly, i expected it to be better. the broth was sweet and i had to add pepper to compensate for the sweetness. i tried some of my friends' dishes and those seemed decent. the restaurant is small and cozy. the waitstaff was very eager to help. honestly, it seemed like many typical small japanese restaurants in manhattan. i wouldn't go out of my way for it, but if i happened to be in the area, i wouldn't mind going again. the prices could also be a bit more competitive.

I ordered 2 uni, 2 salmon, 2 unagi, and a spicy scallop hand roll. and a miso. and an ice tea. I walked out of there 40 bucks later after tip - not crazy for sushi, but certainly not what I would consider "affordable".
That said, the service was friendly and prompt, the sushi was top quality, and I will go here again. Just don't expect to order a la carte and get out of there for 10 bucks.

I am a pure vegetarian and most of the Japanese places you gotta be careful. Waitress took way too long to tell me what this one thing was. She ignored us until my friend got really frustrated and asked her to find out right now, becuase technically we can't eat till then. She was also sorry for her being delayed since they were extremely understaffed.. only 2 waitresses in the whole place. Other than that food's good

I've been going to Mishima for about 6 years now and find it to be the best mix of fresh food and not mega-crazy expensive. The key is the master sushi chef who operates on the second floor only. The downstairs portion is geared towards non-regulars and take-out orders. Before ordering any fish, you have to find out the specials of the day. Or, if you have a little more change in your pocket, sit at the master sushi chef's counter and ask for the best fishes of the day. He will load you up with two sushi pieces at a time of the best fish available that day. BTW, this restaurant is the only sushi restaurant that has a loyal Japanese following that I frequent. How many Japanese restaurants do you go to that you've seen actual Japanese diners?

I have eaten here twice and have no idea how it gets such a high rating. I orderd the chirashi and found it to filled with tiny pieces of cheap fish that was rather stale. I alo ordered the tuna which was tough and stale.

Delicious. Skilled sushi chefs. The sushi here is head and shoulders above anything else in the area. It's not trendy and glitzy like the celeb-packed places, but it is much more authentically japanese. You can really taste the difference when you order something like scallops--so much fresher. If you're a fan of Ikura - theirs has a nice fresh burst of flavor. Its worth it to order one of the specials or ask the sushi chef what is best that day because they really know their stuff.

Looking for an authentic Japanese Sushi restaurant in Manhattan? Definitely try Mishima. Start with Sushi (counter) chefs appetizers, which are uniquely delicious; order Sushi deluxe with a side of calm miso soup. You wont regret it. Sushi deluxe comes with two Toros, and if you are a true Sushi enthusiast, then you would truly appreciate the authenticity of this restaurant. Don't forget to try upstairs too...

I am so sick of fake Japanese places run by non-Japanese ppl in the city. However this place is different! I first ignored Mishima thinking that it'll be another Japanese-wanna-be-Chinese restaurant, but this place isn't anything like that.

I'm now their regular. My recommendations? Try their lobster miso soup and sushi for two. Yeah it's not cheap but then again that's what you have to pay for getting an awesome real Japanese meal.

Mishima has perfectly fresh sushi and wonderful menu choices.
Though we are willing to spend any amount of money for fresh sushi, including the most high end restaurants in nyc, mishima provides the best value hands down.
A fresh and filling lunch can run 10 dollars. Sake is premium and still priced really well.
It's our favorite "secret" for our favorite food.

If I can, I wish I can eat here everyday.
As a Japanese food lover, I've tried out many Japanese restaurants in NYC and I have to admit this is one of the most authentic home style Japanese restaurants. You feel like you are in Japan. Sushi is always fresh and portions are pretty big and satisfying. Try their delux sushi and sashimi set for 2, an excellent choice!
Also if you can, try their daily specials, good value and fresh. I had a grilled whole sea bass and yellowtail neck for $13.50 each. Their appetizers are excellent as well, including octopus salad, grilled sardine and grilled squid, nothing disappointing. Excellent choice for people on Atkin's diet. =) Their Japanese style desserts were good too. I had Japanese style cheese cake which was very creamy and flavorful yet it wasn't as heavy as 'American' cheese cake.

Was surprised to find such good sushi in the middle of India-town! Sushi was fresh (a bit pricey, but so is all good sushi in NYC these days). Nice wooden dining room - very (maybe too) modern, though. A very good meal ~ $90 for 3 persons.

I haven't eaten a whole lot of sushi in my day, but Mishima is the best I've tried. The portions aren't huge, but the fish is oh so fresh. Decor is rather spartan, and the service was accommodating (though I won't go so far as to say 'friendly'). I'll revise this rating as I try more, but Mishima is worth the trip.

There is nothing to complain about this place! The staff is so courteous, and the food is wonderful. The sushi is fresh and delicious, very authentic! All for a reasonable price. There are many regulars, they just keep coming back!
