Just had the Eel riceball which i thought was very good. But please eat the Udon soup at your own risk. I had a small Beef Udon soup. It may quite possibly have had a higher salt content than anything ive ever eaten, couldnt even eat more than a few spoonfuls. Maybe they should consider the ongoing problem in this country with high blood pressure. I dont have high blood pressure though after eating that i just may have it now.

We've been here several times and it's a hit or miss every time simply because some of the rice balls might have been left out for far too many hours. This would have been unacceptable in Japan!! So take some time to look at what you want and point to the specific piece you'd like to have :) A lil pricey but service is very good.

Found this place on the way to a meeting and even though I had lunch already I still went for one rice ball. I love rice balls and had them in so many places and in so many flavors. I order the spicy Tuna and was very impressed by the texture and the right amount of vinegar flavor in the rice and taste of the juicy Tuna. The rice ball was kind of small for the price but it was very delicious so I think is worth it. The only negative thing about the place is that while i was trying to eat and enjoy my rice ball in their large table located in the back i couldn't because their was a loathsome smell. I swallowed my rice ball right away and got out as soon as possible.

I've been here twice, and each time I have been disappointed. Some of the rolls I thought were pretty good (the crab, lobster) and others I thought were horrible (the spicy tuna, beef). The udon soup is ok. I had gone in the evenings both times, and since they close early, they often run out of the better rice balls. I guess it is fine if you choose your rice balls carefully and want to try them, but I probably won't go back.

Yes, its run by a Japanese owner. But this is the fusion New York- Japan style of onigiri. For the cash and price I'm paying--like almost $10 for three onigiri, and small bowl of miso +drink, I think they should use a better rice. Oh well I'm overly pampered with the best rice so I'm complaining. business is business and with this economy people are cutting costs. This place is good if you want to eat less viands and more carbs. OR if youre in a diet and would like to eat 1 or 2 omusubi. Still the price is steep for onigiri. who on earth said this is cheap? Their rice is not the top-of-the-line and the meat is tiny, just imagine how much that should really cost with labor. ohh well... its a good experience though. not alot of Omusubi places around.

Interesting concept, however kind of pricey for what you get. Also, their menu is misleading. One item said "Noodle Set" + 2 rice ball $4.50, but in actuality the whole thing I got came out to $9.75. How does that work? I knew it was too good to be true so I was prepared to pay up if it was infact not $4.50. The riceballs were definitely interesting and neat - I really liked the Shrimp Pop Corn. The udon was only ok. Worth it to try a few times and check out the different riceballs...don't except to get full there though.

I was excited to try this place because I'm always looking for something different in the sea of delis that is midtown, but I was very underwhelmed. To be fair, I did go a little late in the day (around 4:30) but everything tasted like it had been sitting out. The fried shrimp were cold and doughy and the eel was so tough and chewy that it was inedible. I know they are "rice balls" but every single ball was at least 80% rice. I ordered 4 and only finished half because they started to gross me out. It wasn't cheap either...$14 for essentially a pile of rice and some half hearted garnish. A good idea in theory, but it isn't worth the time or money.
