    Not recommended

    Still at the restaurant and having trouble swallowing and digesting my food so I thought I'd write this review. I'm not a sushi expert but even I know that their rolls are hardly edible. They overload on the rice and put very little fish in it making it hard to eat without dunking it in soy sauce and wasabi. The chicken teriyaki looked like it was from prison or a dumpy cafeteria, premade and heated for our order.

    Going to the Theatre? Go to Kodama

    If we are attending a show on Broadway, we eat at Kodama's. The sushi is always fresh and tasty, and we'll have that as an appetizer while waiting for our favorite piping hot seafood and vegetable stew, which is large enough to share. We have been going there for years, and the quality has always been high. Try their green tea ice-cream!

    Wonderful Sushi Restaurant

    Kodama is a privately owned and run sushi restaurant that is frequented with many regular customers both before and after Broadway. I have always found the food to be very good. Having spent about 6 months in a hotel in NY a few years ago, I literally ate my way through the menu. It is an older facility, but they keep it well and it has the look and feel of an old time restaurant. I am looking forward to returning again this evening!

    Overpriced and Horrible Quality Food

    A friend and I tried Kodama because it was recommended BUT it failed to impress either of us. We are both sushi/sashimi fanatics and have probably eaten the same amount of sushi if we were living in Japan permanently. And this place was awful. I will never eat here again or recommend any one eating here. The decor was awful and tired. A greasy spoon in NY had seen better days, this one...not so much. The food was awful. Not one item on our plate was fresh. Fresh fish doesn't disintegrate when you pick it up from your plate. Fresh fish also doesn't drape your chopsticks as you dip it in the sauce. Fresh fish doesn't smell like fish. and fresh fish has a flavour. If you have to soak it in soy sauce doused with wasabi for it to drown the 'fishy' taste, you know it is bad. Even the cooked Tempura was wrong. Tempura looked like it was in a beer batter and tasted like it instead of the proper rice flour. The rice flour, if used, wasn't cold enough before the tempura was cooked. Tempura has to light and crunchy. This was rubbery! The only thing worthwhile eating was the bowl of rice - but who can get steaming rice wrong. You don't need a sushi master to cook the rice, but you do when you are serving sushi. And there is not one sushi master behind the counter and I'll leave it at that. The NY Times and every one who has recommended this place and given it a rave reviews about this place should retract it if you don't want to be embarrassed. That or New Yorkers just don't know what quality and taste is when it comes to their food. Trust me, I once spent over $200 on a plate of amazing sushi while in Beverly Hills so I'd like to think I know my sushi. I've been to Japan and had fresh amazing sushi in the market. I'd even go so far as to say Whole Foods' over the counter sushi is better and the price is right. I will never eat here again or recommend any one to unless you are looking for punishment later from your stomach. My friend and I both got sick and we still are. BAD FOOD!

    One of the japanese restaurants in the city!!

    I have been to this restaurant so many time while traveling in the city, and it is such a wonderful place to eat. One of my favorite meals is the Katsu-Don, a cutlet of panko bread-crumb chicken in a delicate tasty egg sauce with onions, shallots & seaweed, placed on top of a bed of rice. So yummy.

    Great Sushi

    My favorite sushi joint in NYC; whenever I can't decide on a place to eat, this is where I go. Friendly staff and a great selection of rolls. The Canada roll, spider roll, & scallop tempura are a couple favs. Their teriaki is delicious also. Have some sushi with a bottle of nigori and you won't be disapointed.

    Tasty

    Stopped by for lunch today - had a california roll and a spicy/crunchy tuna roll - they were good, large too- only complaint the rice was not seasoned sushi rice as it should be, it tasted like plain white rice (warm authentic sushi rice adds so much to a roll)- the dressing on garden salad is delish; they could crank up the AC - it was a little stuffy in there ; all in all - I'd go back - for the $$ it's a good deal
