I loved this place and am so glad I finally tried it. Not sure why some reviewers are so outraged. It's a nice traditional Japanese sushi restaurant with phenomenal soba noodles when you want to spend a little more. And a plus for the late 80s early 90s decor simple Japanese decor. Feels like you're in a NYC time warp where sushi was still an exotic delicacy.

I was invited to lunch as the guest of my boss who is Japanese. We were doing a trial run as I am planning to host a client lunch here in the next week or two. We placed our modest orders; knowing I like wine or sake with my meal my boss suggested I order a drink. There was no wine/sake; we simply discussed my taste preferences with the waitress who made a recommendation which I agreed to. My boss was handling the bill and only AFTER we returned to the office did she reveal to me the shocking fact that the single serving of sake I'd ordered cost $55! Neither of us could believe it. Personally, I thought it highly unethical of the waitress NOT to have brought a wine list. She must have known the price. Lesson: take nothing for granted.

The sushi at this place was not only bland, it was definitly not flown in from japan! As for the rolls I agree strongly with the other post, they have no fish in them! Would not go back!

1st time ordering delivery from Nippon, last time as well. The fish was fine other than the fact that I got one tiny piece of Japanese snapper for my sashimi order. The rolls were practically all rice though! I could barely see any fish within them!?!? I literally had to walk across the street after eating all this rice wrapped in seaweed & order a bean burrito from Taco Bell!! The prices are ridiculous for what you get. Order from Fusia, it's 100x better.

On christmas day i was craving sushi. i ordered from this place (3 rolls) which added up to $40. ridiculous. not only was it overly expensive, but the food tasted awful. the shrimp tempura roll was not actually tempura and the shrimp was unedible. I highly recommend you NOT order delivery from this restaurant. who knows if it is better at the actual location.

Beloved by New Yorkers, celebs and guests straight from Japan - this restaurant appears low-key but is rather a popular dining room for upper class, than 'iron-chef theater'. Everything is good there. Sushi, sukiyaki, tempura, noodles, etc. Choice ingredients + chefs trained in Japan = strictly authentic, yet not rustic. And that deadly fugu blowfish - definitely worth a try while they're running (winters) I don't see their menu overpriced as others wrote. It's not cheap but you definitely get what you pay for. They must be doing many things right to stay on business for decades.

At lunch, $13.50 for a mini rice bowl that had 2 slices of fish and about 4 mouthfuls of rice. I'm Japanese, and the rice and fish weren't spectacular or anything. The only nice touch was the shiso leaf. I would have gotten a bowl of their famous soba, but they don't offer it on its own, only in lunch sets. Service was an odd mix of brusque/neglectful and stereotypical nice-Japanese-lady-in-kimono. The atmosphere is quite nice, except for the fact that we had a screen separating us from another seating area, and the people on the other side kept on bumping into it. Somewhat discomfiting. It's affordable--for an expense account crowd, which does seem to be their main clientele. But if you have the money and want Japanese, go elsewhere. There are so many other options in Midtown.
