The optimal experience at Seki is at the sushi bar where you can order sushi by the piece - the best medium toro; japanese yellowtail with Jalepeno sauce; snapper with sea salt; japanese scallop; mackarel with ginger and scallions; white eel; freshest uni and uni shiso tempura; and, spicy scallop rolls with crisp seaweed wrappers.

Spicy scallop tamaki is off the charts at Seki. It melts instantly into your mouth once you bite into it. I have tried Tamaki all over the world and Seki beats all bar none!

Make sure you make reservation. Food was excellent, they could do a bit more with decoration. I'll take the quality of food over deco anyday. Must try the black cod with miso and chilean sea bass with black bean sauce. The sushi was very good and very fresh. Highly recommend.

Sushi Seki isn't bad, but there is nothing that sets this place apart from many other Japanese restaurants in NYC. The pieces were pretty small for a la carte sushi and sashimi orders, and they were out of some basic fish, as well as some apps at 10:00 on a Sat night. They lightly sear their salmon which is different. Service was really friendly and the decor is very nice. Being open until 3AM is a big plus.

I'm a sushi snob having lived in Tokyo. This place is not as good as Yasuda, but it still can be amazing. For this quality, the price is a definite bargain. Seki is Chinese, which may irk purists, but he had fine training at Sushi of Gari. The 3am closing time is a huge plus. The live shrimp, heads chopped off and fried, the remainder served raw, is great. Never tried the omakase, but the sushi deluxe never dissapoints me. Gari is creative, and he's the sake king, but this is the best traditional in this neighborhood. Both are worth the vist, for residents. If your date doesn't like it, umm, well...

I've been to many sushi restaurants in Manhattan but this is the best! Their tuna is amazing and their fish is the freshest around. Sooo good!
