    Good sushi

    You can only write poor reviews about this place if you're used to Japanese food that has been Americanized. This is the authentic good stuff. Yes it's a bit pricey, but if you go during lunch time they have menus around $10 such as chirashi with udon. But do try the sushi here cause fresh ingredients are used. The quality always stays the same. I can definitely recommend you Shimizu. This is the first place in New York city I have experienced sushi that melts in my mouth.

    Love it...

    I eat there at least once a week. For those who have given it a bad review, you must have had a bad day. The owner is on the premisis, the staff is great, some language barriers, but very polite fun people. If Hideki Matsui eats here (whenever he comes in to play the Yankees), the food must be great!! It is not fast food sushi, its authentic Japanese food.

    better sushi found at shop-rite

    If you like a lot of white rice and small amounts of fish in your sushi and sushi rolls, this is the place for you. Service was mediocre but the ambience is good.

    Not recommended

    I placed an order over the phone today for a lunch delivery for 2 sushi/ sashimi lunch specials. I was charged over $40 for my order and when it arrived I only received 1 sushi/ sashimi plates. when I called to complain and have the other half of my order sent over I was told that I was incorrect and that I could NOT have lunch specials delivered so what should have been a $21 special was actually $30! Needless to say they should have specified that over the phone to me and clarified that in the first place. Although they did take blame for not explaining that to me over the phone in the first place. they would not rectify the situation and told me that if I wanted another sushi/ sashimi lunch special I would have to pay $30 for it. Needless to say I will NEVER be ordering from them again

    Good lunch bargain

    I have been to this restaurant a number of times for lunch on weekdays and weekends. I found most of the dishes consistently good and well priced for lunch. I enjoy the raw fish selection as well as many of its cooked dishes. The only dish I have reservation is the teriyaki--a little too sweet/thick.

    Do not believe the great reviews.

    The food was subpar and I do not know but can guess who is writing all the great reviews. Oshinko had off flavors. Seaweed salad was subpar and sat on a mayo? dressing. Yellowtail Collar was a little old (fishy). The sushi hand rolls had moist nori and were not very good. Nothing was memorable in a good way. And the bathroom has stained acoustic ceiling tiles and the door is 30% covered in scuff marks.

    true to the blue

    Anyone who criticize Shimizu's sushi for its quality don't know what they're talking about. They have the best selection of what the Japanese call "hikari-mono," the fishy fish that American palate cannot properly appreciate. Forget tuna (red) or hamachi (white), and go for the wide selection of fresh sardines, aji, samma, kohada, sayori, with the perfect touch of vinegar seasoning.
