Riki does very well with its entrenched Japanese client base, but I guess they don't mind that the food is overpriced for what it is. Riki's advantage over other shops of its ilk is its big size, not to mention the elegant bar on the second floor, but the food is merely serviceable, considering it is slightly more expensive and not as varied as its downtown brethren (think Yokocho). The $16 pitcher of beer is no bargain, either. The atmosphere is oftentimes pleasant however, hence the fact the place is packed practically every night.

I love this place, it is so authentic, not only from the standpoint of the cuisine, which is absolutely delicious, but from the service to the setting. The service was very personal and the dishes were all delectable. I would definitely recommend this place for Japanese cuisine aficionados!

Working for the Japanese, one has a tendancy to become caught up in the tradition and heritage that encompasses their everyday actions. When traveling through New York it is customary for the Japanese to look at websites developed by other Japanese business travelers to find unique dinning experiences. At the top of every list, is Riki. The food is excellent, but what truly makes this a wonderful, hidden experience, is the atomosphere. It truly is a "local Tokyo" bar, for all those that live there. Some have even been moved to tears at the memory of "home". An amazing value, a wonderful sushi experience, and in the heart of everything. Riki, Tokyo comes to Manhattan.
