Fresh fish, wonderful rolls - plump, tasty, best ratio of fish to rice - one roll can fill you up, though you're going to want more! Spicy crunch tuna roll is my favourite, white tuna & scallion is delicious as well. Good non-sushi choices (beyond teriyaki!) for groups that have non-raw-fish eaters. By far my #1 pick for sushi.

The best sushi on the UWS (although I haven't tried Gari yet)! Amazing food. Excellent service. Good prices. We love Tenzan and their staff!

I've dined here many times and every experience has been excellent. Tasty, high quality food and fast, friendly service. When I dine here, I am guaranteed a great, hassle-free dinner.

Tenzan has quickly become our favorite casual dining place. The sushi is always fresh and delicious, with creative twists on ordinary rolls. The service is extremely fast for both dining in and delivery. I would highly recommend the calamari appetizer.. . it is just divine.

Tenzan is clearly a "classic" quality sushi place. Ambiance is basic, and they have wisely chosen to focus their effort and money on food quality and prep. Fish quality is consistant, and is very good, even on a Sunday night. While I have heard issues with the service, I have never experienced any problems. They even have nice touches like providing frosted beer mugs, which makes the Ichiban taste even better. Clearly worth the trip to the UWS for fish, and definitely worth a taste if you live in the UWS and are looking for a slightly more classic and superior food-quality sushi experience than Haru.

A few months ago I gave up on my search for an affordable sushi restaurant on the UWS. I came upon Tenzan by accident and was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the chirashi. Hands down it was the best quality of fish that I have had in this part of town, and the portions were great. Price was reasonable and service prompt and not overbearing (as some Japanese places are.) I can't wait to go back and I have been recommending this place to all my friends. UWS is no longer hopeless for decent sushi which won't make you bankrupt.

If Gari is #1 in the uws, this is probably #2...unless you like Neo (and are half bent)...sushi ranges from average to exceptional...tenzan is near the high end of above average (considering the location,) if you compare it to haru, roppongi, etc. whatever, i'm picky...so someone hip me...where is THE sushi spot in the uws. I've been to Masa, excellent.
