I went to Ennju yesterday for the first time and what a disappointment. The sushi was ordinary and badly prepared. By the time I found a table, my sushi had fallen apart! Salmon here, avocado there...

I've eaten here many times and find that the food is generally fair. The atmosphere is busy and friendly, the sushi is fine before it's refrigerated, but once it's refrigerated (or just cooled) it's ordinary. The salads about what you'd expect. But among the hot foods is something called chicken which really baffles me. It's gristly, does not have that familiar poultry skin, and basically doesn't resemble or taste like any chicken I've ever seen. I usually go there because of convenience, because he music is very good, and because there is a wide enough choice of low calorie food at lunchtime. But made the mistake of ordering chicken this week and will never do so again.

ennju is a good place to get a quick bite to eat or satisfy a sushi craving. the staff is really friendly and the food is good.. a few gripes though...there's too much rice in the sushi, the crunchy crab and mayo is never crunchy and the spicy tuna is never spicy!

The menu has many things I remember in Japan. It is known as family restaurant. Only difference in menu is this place offer Sushi. To eat sushi in Japan, we go to sushi restaurant. It is an American thing to have both in one restaurant. Sushi box looked good so I picked up Salmon roll ($4.50) and ordered Pork Katsu Curry ($9.50 curry over white meat no fat pork cutlet over a bed of rice.) They satisfied my craving for comfort food. I love to go back again and try new things.

Totally authentic japanese 'comfort food'. you can tell it is japanese owned and operated. and the customer base is a testament to its quality, value and authenticity. don't just go for the sushi...try everything. i lived in tokyo years ago and fell in love with kara age (japanese fried chicken). it's chunks of dark meat in a distinctive, very crispy batter, served with white rice, lemon and red pepper. it's not considered 'refined' japanese cuisine, so japanese restaurants almost never serve it...i've craved this for a decade and now i can't get enough. also try the curry rice. it's blue-collar japanese chow, and unlike any other curry you've ever had. ask any japanese you meet who's been to ennju and they'll tell you it's just like home.

Me and my coworkers have lived on Ennju for the past 2 years! It is the best Japanese take out around, and the prices are also very reasonable. I would highly recommend Ennju to anyone looking for the real deal at a realistic (non-posh NYC bs) price.

This is a truly authentic Japanese sushi fast food joint. All of the sushi is fresh and placed in the cooler. You can always ask for anything to be remade or custom prepared too. But by far the best part about Ennju is the value. After 7 or 8pm (the last hour they're open), everything is 50% off or more (of what is in the cooler and they usually add fresh items too)!!! People often crowd into the place a few minutes before to claim their items and line up ready to go. The place is clean and bright; it's not one of those dark and cozy sushi restaurants. For cheap, fast, and consistently tasty and fresh sushi, this is the best place to go in the city.
