Matsuya

www.matsuyasushi.com

Great Neck, NY

So our ventures the other night took us to Matsuya in Great Neck. I'm not going to lie, we drove past the place a few times and from the outside and the tasteful, yet simple decor, you may assume this place is generic, but it is anything but! You know it's the -real- deal when half the tables are taken by Japanese customers. *Too dark to take pictures.

Azuma

Greenlawn, New York

Our latest adventure was to Azuma in Greenlawn. The restaurant was small and homey. It was more traditional with Japanese styled art and curtains and large fish decorating the walls. The place had an inviting scent. There was a small crowd, but you could tell many were regular customers or locals. They have a large menu, offering Pan-Asian dishes and a large selection of specials to choose from.

Last night we ventured into Mumon in Garden City. It is located right on Franklin Avenue, where Saks Fifth Avenue used to be located. We are immediately taken aback by the size on the restaurant.

Lotus

Farmingdale, NY

Our latest stop was at Lotus in Farmingdale. Located right on Conklin Avenue, in the middle of downtown, this place was hard to miss. The decor was a mix of traditional and modern, with pendant lighting and textured walled art. All the servers were decked in all black with these adorable sushi ties.

As we sat down to eat the place was slowing filling up. Our server Steven took very good care of us, keeping our glasses full and bringing clean plates, as did everyone else like Jim, the gracious owner Michael and our awesome chef Tony.

Nisen

Woodbury, NY

They did have a DJ that played good music all night. I remember telling Michael that the music was actually awesome which you won't find at a more traditional sushi restaurant.

Overall, it reminded us of Aji 53 a little in that both are not the more traditional places. Our coats are checked and the gracious manager Ron seats us. First time we ever had someone take our coats.

Sakura

NOT AVAILABLE

East Meadow, NY

On our latest sushi adventure we ended up at Sakura in East Meadow. It was their Grand Opening and we wish them the best of luck. It is one of the smaller and more modest sushi places we have been to, tucked away in a small shopping strip on Newbridge Road. They made great usage of the space, placing a long bench along one side of the restaurant and tables on the other.

NEW JERSEY

TOKYO

tokyodinning@gmail.com

Freehold, NJ

Man, if this place was located on Long Island or even in Queens, I'd never eat anywhere else. It's not because they have an amazing selection of specialty sushi. It's because the restaurant is just awesome, the people working there are awesome and they're willing to make whatever sushi we wanted. More importantly, they took our very complicated order and made some BANGING sushi, as good as any place we've been to date. Best bang for your buck - this place guaranteed. They have HIBACHI, a major plus. Eat in the hibachi section then walk over to chinese and finish off with sushi. Want desert? They've got an amazing selection of fruit and cakes, unlike any other chinese buffet. You won't be disappointed, I promise.

Best Sushi Restaurants Long Island, Nassau County/Suffolk County & Queens

If you're looking for the best Japanese & sushi restaurants in the Long Island, New York area, look no further. We've been living in New York for nearly 25 years and know all of the secret spots. Sushi to us is more than just fish wrapped in rice. Real sushi takes time to prepare and is an art. The quality of their fish, the service, the cleanliness of their restaurant and the entire package is what we look at. Sauces are important as well. We frown upon restaurants that rely on generic sauces. We aim to list the sushi restaurants in New York (NY) or Long Island that take their business and their sushi seriously, not just something extra to serve their customers. Our list includes nassau/suffolk, the general tristate area and queens / staten island / brooklyn / bronx.
