I strongly disagree with the previous bost by anon. I have eaten sushi from hundreds of restaurants all over the world, including the Tsukiji fish market in Japan. As far as New York City goes, this Japanese restaurant is undeniably as good as it gets. The quality is outstanding. To the knowledge of a basic sushi critique, the food is unbelievable. I have been going to Sushiden East and West for over twenty years. It has been consistently the best restaurant for authentic Japanese sushi. The employees and chef's are very friendly as well.

After having an excellent lunch, my wife and I decided to give dinner a try before a Broadway show. Service...Check! Miso Soup...Check! Service....Check! Salad.... Not as good SushiBleck!! Not sure what happened. The rolls my wife ordered were gummy and the tuna/scallion one she ordered tasted like tuna from a can. My sashimi felt like it was sitting around a while. The quality of a sushi place rests on the consistent quality, preperation and handling of its fish. This was not close to what I had for lunch just a few days prior. The one saving grace was the desert. Green tea cake made from green tea mouse layered in between crepes. It was pretty good but could not get over how bad the fish was. Maybe this is what the pre-theater crowd thinks is great sushi. People sitting around us were all from out of town and thought it was great. I bet they havent had sushi before outside of a supermarket display case. Would love to give this place another try but will will be very hesitant becuase of the huge day/night difference.

Went to SUSHIDEN for the first time with a business contact as per his reccomendation. I have eaten alot of sushi and from variuos places over the years and SUSHIDEN ranked up there and surpassed my favorites in the NYC area. The fish was of excellent quality and the rice was perfect.

I am Japanese and have eaten sushi all my life (even at Tsukiji fish market). This place is as good as it gets. It's not trendy, flashy or frilly. They do sushi the way it's supposed to be done. I agree with the review before, get a seat at the counter and ask the chef to do as he pleases. You will not be disappointed. The service is impeccable, the fish is high quality and they have a lot of variety. It's a good value and service is fast. This is the Japanese person's Japanese restaurant.

One of my top 5 places . The best Med Fatty toro that I have tried, Everything else is great but I would pass on their spider roll.

When it comes to sushi, I'm difficult to please. This is one place I can highly recommend. If sushi means calfornia rolls to you, don't bother. But if you a real gourmet, take a counter seat and ask the chef to give you Omakase (chef's recommendation for the day). Probably the best sushi you can get outside of Japan for the price -- comes to about $80 per person without drinks. It's worth it.

One of the best well balanced sushi joints in NYC. Can't beat their combination of atmosphere and food. The service is always excellent and consistent. Very reasonably priced for an excellent experience.
