We went to Tenzan on a weekday evening and found it very crowded and noisy, with decor really bland and being most reminiscent of a restaurant kitchen. The service was uninviting, various items were forgotten now and then, but the worst problem was the food. The salmon tartar seemed cooked and was mixed with lots of tempura flakes resulting in a very different flavor from how it should taste, the spider roll had shrimp shells inside to the extent that it couldn't be eaten, and everything else we ordered was mediocre at best. New York is full of great Japanese places - pass this one!

I love Tenzan! I've been patronizing the UES and UWS locations for over 3 years now and I am never disappointed. I usually order for delivery and they are always quick, proficient and friendly. I work on 8th Avenue in the 40's and they still deliver to me!

Was this the same place that used to be on the 2nd floor nearby? 'Cause it wasn't near as good. Fish was fresh enough but not sparkling just cut the slice fresh. But all else was pretty unappetizing. The Yellowtail tartar I ordered was just poor beyond words. I was like they'd put yellowtail and ginger (maybe some scallion) in a food processor.Then (based on what they finally told me) they mixed that with a generous proportion of spicy mayo and already fried tempura batter flakes. I expect tartars to be pieces/chunks of fish with vinegrette/style dressings. This was like a heavy mouthful of greasy crud in which I couldn't even taste the yellowtail . I did try to finish but couldn't. At first a waiter insisted on charging me because I had had a few bites but afterwards another employee took the offending item off the bill then my friend - who'd order the shrimp tempura bento box also couldn't finish because the tempura was so greasy and the shumai dumplings were dry and without taste. Sinserely

Only had take out so can't comment on atmos etc but sushi is delicious, fresh and filling - best I've come across on UWS yet. Delivery has always been super quick too. Top marks Tenzan.

Sashimi portions are generous and the mackerel is the best I've ever had. I try something new each time I go. The hamachi kama is delicious, warm and savory, the seared salmon is lovely and delicate. The only disappointment was the Chilean sea bass which is my favorite, but apparently is too subtle to be put into a sushi roll. The service is okay, not terrifically attentive, solicitous, or quick, but I haven't found it offensive. A bit pricey, but worth it for the quality of the food.

I really had to give them a piece of my mind one day about the service, since there wasn't any. Then, I handed them a check I was not about to pay. My service has improved, but yesterday, my food was not edible. The pan seared veggie dumplings that were delicious the week before were a soggy mess. And, the salmon tartare with garlic crunch was all crunch and no fish. I asked a female server if the chef was new and she said yes. They are opening on 86th St. and brought many of the regular people from Columbus to the new store. Great...I told her that if I'm at a chef's rehearsal, then please discount my prices. The hardest thing for a restaurant to accomplish is some semblance of consistency and this chain is getting bigger and greedier, a good way to lose customers in the neighborhood who loved Tenzan. It wasn't Nobu, but a reasonable neighborhood place to eat. I hope they get their service and food in order.
