    Fantastic, stiff competition to locals

    I love Momoya. The ambience, the authentic taste and feel of the food, the freshness of the fish, the cleanliness, the leather white benches, the awesome waiters who anticipate your every need (you might get a dud every once in a while, but I do eat here very often with my boyfriend who also loves it and is munching on a box meal right now). I would say it rates up there with Land (which is across the street and up a block). I am rather perplexed at the negative reviews, although it dawned on me that DUH, there's 4+ other sushi places within a 2 block radius of this place and their employees probably figured out how to use the internet. I hate Hiro and the other sushi places around the block - crowded and their sushi is incredibly inferior to Momoya's. The other sushi places are the McDonalds' of sushi. I gotta say though I'd rather this place not get too popular, like the ever-crowded Land, because I want this place all to myself. Strongly recommend any of the sushi, the box meals and the yummmmmy green tea mille crepe cake or the red bean ice cream WITH the sauce. OMG yum.

    Cute place, bad experience

    The place is nice and cool, but the food is not good and the service is worse. There are many Asian restaurants in the area and this one ranks in the lowest 10th percentile. Just another good-from-far but far-from-good place.

    The longest yard. one of the worst asian food in 5y

    In summary: - poor and slow service - no timing in cooking - subpar quality of the basic ingredients I won't recommend to anyone and I won't definitely go back

    Fantastic White tuna!!!!

    I have eaten there twice now and can't stop raving about the white tuna they have. I also like the sake select]on and all the special rolls etc. on the menu. It is on the pricier side but I view it as a treat when I go there. It is the only place where I love sitting at the sushi bar because you are not staring at the fish in the fridge and the stupid plastic grass that is used to mask the fish... The white marble bar makes things look very clean.

    Disappointing

    While the reviews were great, my experience at Momoya was not. While the fish tasted decent, it came in gigantic supersized McSushi pieces. I felt more like I was eating a whole fish instead of quality sushi. The main dish, teriyaki tofu, was overwhelmed by oil. Too bad because the restaurant is pretty and the people are nice.

    Great newcomer. Best Uptown Japanese?

    We've ordered for delivery twice now. Far and away the best Japanese in the neighborhood. The tofu chop with exotic mushrooms was outstanding. Same for the grilled eel over rice. Friendly staff on the phone. We'll be back.

    Why I go choose Momoya 1-4 times a week

    Firstly ,I live 200 paces from the doorstep of Momoya Uptown. Secondly I live 220 paces from two other well known japanese restaurants. * Momoya is by far the best appointed in respects to the quality of fish, methods of preparation and presentation, and atmosphere. The selection of Sake is deep with quality and flavor. Ask for recommendations because they can really help you decide. The Omikase is (of course) the best, but I am so satisfied with the sushi/sashimi combo. It changes depending on what they have and every once in a while you will get something you would expect in the omikase (like baby yellow tail or flying fish). The Mushroom soup is really full of mushrooms and the flavor of enoki and shitake. Many people don't try the katsudon (chicken'kat'-fried'su'-rice'don')(i think) It is really good chicken cutlet with a soy based sauce with egg over rice. It is a really good choice for a hearty meal on a cold winter day. Even if its cold try either one of the ice creams because they are strong in flavor - the azuki bean or red bean ice cream is my favorite. The chocolate cake is good as well if you havent eaten a whole lot because it is very rich. (but they micro it to get it warm-which to me is a real dissapointment) The last reason Momoya is my choice is because the crouds havent hit yet - Though this weekend there was a wait of 30-45 minutes to get a table . Happy as I was for Momoya I got a little worried that my sushi joint will be overrun with strollers and birthday parties any day now. Luckily if you go 1-4 times a week, the kind waitstaff will know your name and call you in a few minutes! Please go! I take all my friends and visitors and they are always, Always impressed and have a good time. The other new and underexposed sushi place i would choose is Zenkichi in Williamsburg Brooklyn. A little off the beaten path but close to Bedford Ave, but they are a little more daring than Momoya but less crafted in the atmosphere. The quality is equal at both places.
