“... he slightly seared one piece by torching it right behind the bar along with putting a onion ponzu sauce on top, while asking us to lightly dip the regular piece (on the fish side, not touching the rice) in a bit of soy sauce to appreciate two totally ”
“Very fresh sushi.”
“While Yasuda and Gari has more selections, Taro's fish is just as fresh and has them beat in the flavor of the sushi rice.”
“And on top of that, it's half the price of those restaurants, which now ranks Taro as my favorite Japanese restaurant in NYC.”
“Chef Sano (very friendly) prepared the meal with the perfect pace, as well as explaining each course and how to enjoy them correctly.”
“Choice sushi, nice price.”
“Service wasn't the most attentive but it's the way I like it, as I don't like to be asked how everything is every 5 minutes.”
Why am I the only one there?. I've been to Taro for lunch whenever business brings me to downtown Brooklyn - maybe once every two months - and the food is soooo good! But I'm often the only person in the restaurant. As infrequently as I go, the waitress always remembers my preferences. The sushi chefs are devoted to their work, even if you only order a lunch special. I only give it an "average" on atmosphere because I've never been there in the evening, when atmosphere might matter. If you work in the neighborhood, try it for lunch! The eel-rice is especially delicious.
BEST SUSHI EVER!!. I went to this place with another couple and we all were pleasantly surprised by the great food. Staff is very friendly and give good advice. I love this place, sushi is delicious and interesting, not the boring stuff you get from every other place. I order from here 1x a week! and it never gets boring!
Choice sushi, nice price. Arigato gozaimashita!.
Had dinner here at the bar on Saturday night. $25/pp Sushi Omakase. Our spoils:
sliced Monkfish Liver app-delicious
1 Toro (tuna belly)
1 Maguro (tuna)
2 Sake (salmon)
2 Hamachi (yellowtail)
2 Unagi (eel)
1 fresh crab (seaweed wrapped)
1 Uni (urchin)
1 Tako (octopus)
1/2 roll Spicy Tempura Shrimp
1/2 roll Spicy Tuna
The pieces were appropriately sized. I don't like big pieces some places serve (Osaka, Yama).
With 11 sushi pieces each, shared rolls, appetizer we were sated and at a good price. For a quicker dinner anothertime I would think about the $30/sushi for 2.
The 2 chefs were enthusiastic and our chef's eyes lit up when we requested Uni (my first time, not sure I am a new disciple). About 1/2 of the 8 seat bar was occupied by Japanese speakers, who seemed to be enjoying their meals also.
I will be back for sure.
Great place. Judt checked this place out and the food was great. The service was also very good. Definitely something to check out. Make sure and try the udon - mmm.
Gotta Try!!. For Brooklyn, the prices and freshness of the sushi cannot be beat. The owner, Sano, is extremely nice and he has a very authentic Japanese restaurant. Try the dragon roll!
simply excellent sushi.
Taro Sushi NY - a companion restaurant to the home restaurant in Tokyo lies right near Atlantic Station off Flatbush at Dean St. As a small restaurant with only 6-7 tables and a sushi bar, this local fav isn't a place to bring large parties but it is simply one of the best sushi spots in brooklyn. The sushi chef, trained in Japan, knows his fish and it shows in the3 typical and not-so-typical dishes he turns out for the regulars. Get to know the chef, and he will create special things for you that are delicious and unique. from the sashimi to the rolls, to the good selection of sake to the daily specials direct from Japan.
