AKA Sushi (fka Kawa Sushi)

You get what you pay for. Fairly decent sushi at a good price. Normally, I'd give it a lukewarm review but during my stay I was treated to something special, Aerosmith's greatest hits. Steven Tyler's words echoed through my very soul as the wasabi did through my palate. So, overall recommended.

Like many New Yorkers I eat sushi regularly - Kawa is among the best I've had. The sushi is always fresh and delicious, and the prices are extremely reasonable. We eat at the restaurant often - it is cozy and engaging. The delivery is always fast, too...we order in frequently. Definitely worth a visit!

You get what you pay for here. if you order the sushi deluxe for $45- you're going to get 6 pieces of salmon (the cheapest fish by far), 4 pieces of red tuna, 2 yellow tail, 2 white tuna, and 2 eel. The roll came with salmon all over it as well. Unimpressive. You're better off ordering a la carte sushi / sashimi here as there is definitely no deal ordering platters. Kawa is very good-- i'm still lean towards Ido Sushi in the west village for better bang for your dollar. The king crab at Kawa is really good, as is the uni. The sushi has too much rice under it for my tastes and i'm not in love with their sushi cuts. The rice however is very well prepared- with just the right amount of vinegar- not easily done. Overall i give it a 7.5 out of 10- knocking a point off because of what you get for the price. Fish is fresh and it's still light years better then Sakura Hana which is around the corner. Never visited Kawa, but i've ordered from them a few dozen times.

I confess - I live uptown and work in chelsea and I don't mind staying late at work to order from Kawa! I have been to plenty of corporate lunches at all the cliche fancy expensive places and this place kicks their butt! The Sushi is fresh any night of the week - the rolls are packed and they have some great/ different combinations. Its inexpensive and while the interior is not fancy, it is quaint and very clean. I am picky with my sushi and this place is a hidden gem in the west village.

My grandfather did business w/ Japan after the war and financed the first sushi bar in the city of Chicago. I've been eating sushi with my family since I was 8. Kawa is my favorite sushi bar in NYC. Its a local gem in the West Village with high-quality with reasonable prices in a neighborhood atmosphere. If you eat sushi for the food and not for the pretention, then this is the best place in NYC of over a dozen sampled. Not a place to take a first date to, but definitely a place to take a foodie or true sushi lover to. Or get it delivery and support high-quality family-run sushi in NYC.

Kawa is a wonderful neighborhood sushi restaurant. I usually order delivery or take out. The atmosphere to sit down in the restaurant is nothing special - it is pretty small and plain but very clean and the staff is extremely welcoming. The special rolls may seem expensive but they are HUGE and definitely worth the money.

We got sushi for 2, but for some reason the waitress would not honor our request to have some eel rolls or philadelphia rolls in our platter. When it came it consisted of one sushi roll and the rest was sashimi. All of it was good enough but it was too expensive for what it was and the waitress was unfriendly and unaccommodating.
