    There's way more to Japanese food than sushi!

    This restaurant reminded me of some small places I've eaten in when traveling in Japan. I think it a little sad that so much focus is placed on sushi when there is so much more to Japanese food. It is subtle - hence the "bland" calamari another reviewer writes about. If you want fried spicy calamari, go to an Italian restaurant. I had the pork katsudon and my husband had the tempura udon. Both were very good. We also had an order of the age tofu - light and crisp and excellent tofu on the inside. Can't speak for the sushi since we didn't have any, but if you like Japanese food try this place.

    Sushi rice not moist

    The sushi rice was dry and the rolls were somewhat scanty. The tempura though was very delicious. Will try Kitaro again, maybe ask to sample the rice first.

    Best sushi lunch in the UWS

    Amazing sushi bundled up in a great lunch special. Eat here at least once a week. The service is very good and the place itself is clean and inviting.

    Value and service at its best

    Kitaro is not your high end, overpriced sushi/sashimi place. It's perfect for those that want to enjoy great sushi at a great price and not pay for the expensive decor that many sushi restaurants in New York have adopted. I've become a regular based on the service. They always greet with a smile and make me feel welcome. I highly recommend Kitaro. It's food is as good as any other sushi restaurant and I look forward to the next time I'm there.

    Great place

    Me and my girlfriend were looking for a casual place to eat and found Kitaro. The food was excellent and they have some very unique rolls on the menu. The service was also very good and i would reccomend Kitaro if you're looking for sushi in the neighborhood. If they still have the tuna guacamole appitizer on the menu give it a try.

    Who goes to a sushi place to have fried calamari? That is a fail from the start. It is not a mom and pop fried fish restaurant. Sushi or Teriyaki is their specialty and they do it very well. I have been going to Kitaro for about 6 years and they are still as good as they were in 2005. If you want fried calamari, go to a diner.

    Not recommended

    Kitaro is a hole in the wall my friend and I decided to try out. It's super small inside with no scenery ...which I could live with ...but then I order fried calamari which comes to my plate looking like fat fried larvae eggs!!! And the taste was even more unappetizing! It was completely unseasoned and bland! When we requested to switch out the tasteless calamari for something more to our liking the woman refused and tried to play the I don't speak English card...I will never return to Kitaro and do not recommend it to others. Complete fail.
