  • Kodama Sushi

    Posted by Road Warrior on 10/26/2010

    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.

    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

    Every time I'm in the city...

    Without fail I have a meal at Kodama. The food is always fresh and delicious, the service is quick and you cannot beat the price. I have never had a problem with an order or service. I can't tell you how long I've had to wait for food, because it's never been an issue. I've never waited longer than 5 minutes for a table but for bigger parties I certainly suggest making a reservation. A bonus if you are a b'way patron. If you eat dinner here between the matinee and the evening performance, you will almost always catch some b'way performers dining here as well.

    Shabby decor, decent food

    I've been going to Kodama for decades because I work in the area. The sushi at the sit-down restaurant is good, but with the exception of the work of the oldest sushi chef, the artful arrangements of years ago have disappeared. There used to be much decoration on the plate, now there is a fake green thing or a single piece of parsley. The fish is fresh, but the restaurant decor is so shabby that I never take anyone "new" there. I wish they would at least spend some money on new carpeting. Please!! The food you get when you order for delivery is not of the same caliber as when you eat in. The ready-made sushi in the side shop is decent for what they charge.

    For years i have been coming here and it has been amazingly consistent. The fish is always fresh and is what seperates kodama from other sushi places in NY. I set my watch to delivery being 25 minutes to my particular building. Additionally i really like to eat at the restaurant when the pre-theatre crowd isn't in. The inside is very simple and allows for good conversations with good friends when it is not as busy. My personal favorite is the Kodama roll with 8 types of fish.
