How this place is still kept under the radar, I have no idea. Its sushi is so fresh, and the appertizers are very authentic. I wouldn't call its style creative / fusion. It's just honest, good fresh Japanese food. And the service is top notch. Given the long wait, high price and slow service at other places, this place wins hands down.

...this one would be The One. I was hesitant to give a review, because I want Gajyumaru to stay the best kept secret in NYC. It is a small, cozy restaurant, very unassuming and simple. But the food - especially the sushi - spectacular. And it gets better each time I go there. It's the kind of sushi that makes you want to stand up on your chair, make an announcement to everyone present that they HAVE TO try a certain roll you just savored. But then it all becomes a blur, because one piece is better than the next. I am salivating as I type this. And no, I am not related to the people that own this restaurant. And the service - spectacular. You will not get razzle-dazzled. But you will get kind, courteous, efficient, wonderful service from the staff. And if you go more than once, chances are your order will be remembered by the staff. Amazing, I cannot say enough good things about Gajyumaru!

Take it from an asian foodie-this place had the best fish I ever had in NYC-service is very slow due to what seems like a tremendous call in business for deliveries. The miso soup itself was so special-not like all the other subpar Chinese-run sushi outlets or restaurants.

Gajyuramu has always been a great and consistently delicious place for my friends and boyfriend to eat out. We have been going there ever since they opened that the owners and staff know what we order, and basically, what's new for us to try. My friends and I actually have withdrawals if we haven't eaten there for a while. The atmosphere is low-key, yet nice for a special date or occasion. A wonderful place for good food, company, and conversation -- a heaven sent!

The sushi is amazing for the Upper East Side. Much better than Haru. It's the next Sushi of Gari. Definitely try the crab shumai .. I had to order seconds!

I've recommended this restaurant to many! It's fantastic...As a regular the waitresses recognize me and are very friendly. The food is wonderful, the best sushi I've had in NYC. This is by far the best sushi restuarant in the neighborhood.

Best Japanese in the neighbourhood. I go to almost weekly. Authentic with consistent quality. Some Japanese say it is better than Japan. Absolutely must try the chicken nanban (although the portion size has noticeably shrunk compared to when the restaurant first opened). If you like sashimi or sushi - traditional, not stuff with cream cheese in it - this is the place. Best bara chirashi I have had in NYC. Service is friendly, especially if you are a regular. Only complaint is that there needs to be more changes to the "specials" menu and the pricing on roasted gingko nuts is a bit of a ripoff.
