Posted by Unbelievable and Reasonable Sushi on 06/12/2007
Although the service and value for food were only good, and the atmosphere of the restaurant was below average, the food was phenomenal yet reasonable. Basically, the food is so amazing that it balances out the mediocre atmosphere and the decent service and value for food; definitely; certainly go to this restaurant, if you actually like fresh, high-quality, yet reasonable sushi!!

We have been going here for over a year and we absolutely love this place. I've been to countless sushi restaurants, and their sushi is of the highest freshness and quality (at a resonable price) and all their cooked dishes are wonderful. I highly recommend chicken nanban and their home made tofu dishes. Their lunch menus are a great bargain. Only negative thing is they're only open on the weekends for lunch and the place is starting to get crowded on friday nights.

I have been going to Gajyumaru for years now and can say it is some of the best sushi in the city. I often try other places but they rarely stand up against the freshness of Gajyumaru's sushi. Their special appetizers are also wonderful and not likely to be found on other menus. I recommend the homemade, chilled tofu which is divine.

I absolutely love this place. My husband and I go at least once a week if not more. The sushi is so FRESH and my new favorite entree is the broiled yellow tail .....FABULOUS!!

This is one of the best Japanese restuarants in NY for 'traditional' Japanese cuisine, my home (well... kitchen) away from home. The food here is definitely authentic Japanese and the chef is a traditionalist. He is a master with his knife --- the sushi and sashimi are excellent. I've had the best fatty toro and king salmon sashimi here -- both which just melt in your mouth. His cooked dishes are great too --- his 'dashi' (broth) used is one of the best in NY, so you can tell that the chef does not take any shortcuts. The service is not obtrusive but you will notice that your sake cup is magically kept full at all times. And as the end to a perfect meal, don't miss the pumkin pudding.

Great assortment of raw fish (which was excellent quality and well prepared) and other dishes. The service was great, as was my "glass of sake," served in a bamboo server and pured into a bamboo glass, which was refilled, without disturbing me, by my server whenever it was "low." I will return soon.

I accidently wrote this review first under sushi of gari. I love that place. This place on the other hand was one of the worst experiences I've had at a restaurant. My husband and I went for a nice Friday night out. They seated us at a nice table and then after we ordered, they came over and said we "had to move", because they just made a reservation for that table. WHAT?? Why would you seat us there if you had a reservation? Why would you make a new reservation when we're already sitting there? It's obvious that someone called that they wanted to impress and we were insignificant enough to get booted. AND, to make matters worse, the food was totally forgetable. There was not one thing special about the omakase. I could get better sushi on almost any corner on the upper east side. Don't bother!
