Has anyone tried Ten Sushi, new to Park Slope

Mel loves food May 21, 2008 02:43 PM

I've been watching them set up on for the past month or so. They opened up shop earlier this week. I haven't had a chance to stop in yet, but it looks modern (black, white and red color scheme and furniture with clean lines) and inviting (nice details like flowers on the tables).

Has anyone tried the food?

    We were also pleasantly surprised by this local pace. Sushi was fresh, and the mango & avocado salad had us tempted to order a second. I also enjoyed the cute touches, like the little carafe with the separate ice-holder that the sweet waitress brought for our BYOB sake.

      I work nearby a few days a week and went there last week after giving them time to work the kinks out. It was OK. While it's not as good as Taro on its good nights, it still seems a bit better right now than any of the other non-Japanese sushi places in that part of Brooklyn. Certainly ahead of the pretty terrible Kiku down the street. I think it's Chinese run, and Chinese was definitely the language of choice behind the scenes, and the menu is a bit heavy on the Americanized "creative roll" concept for me. Nice decor though - a huge change from the desultory Laila's that was in that space forever.

        Stopped in with a friend for a light dinner and definitely enjoyed. I had the Apple-Spicy Yellowtail roll and the Eel Mango roll and both were delicious and creative combinations.

          I'm very happy about this place. While it doesn't qualify as a "holy crow that's good sushi" sort of joint, I've had delivery from them 4 times and it's quite a bit better than the other options in the nabe. I also found out they'll make brown rice sushi (I know I know -- sushi purists, please give me a pass on this) and they do a really nice job of it. If you think of this as a delivery place or neighborhood spot rather than a top-of-the line place, you may be as glad as I am that they're here now.

            I was not impressed by the sushi at this restaurant. It's not horrible but it's nothing to write home about.

              I went there on Saturday night and was actually pleasantly surprised with the quality of the sushi. Both the Toro and Scallion roll and the Yellowtail/Jalapeno roll we had was very good. I don't care for eel but my wife had two pieces of the eel sushi and said it was very good. I think it is quite a good place for standard fare (maybe not for more adventurous stuff). The service was also very good and the place is very cheap. There are some slightly strange dishes on the menu (chicken with mozzarella and teriyaki sauce???) but we were pretty happy. We will have to try it once or twice more before we decide whether it is our go-to standard for sushi in the South Slope.

                I agree-- a bit better than I was expecting. Although the sushi is just "good," compared to the competition in PS, you get more than you pay for in terms of ambiance and decor-- The entire front of the restaurant opens up to the street, which made for very pleasant experience (of course, in the midst of this heat wave they'll probably keep it closed for the A/C). Also, the service was excellent. Their 'special' rolls were very good.

              I'm curious too, I drove by around 9:05 tonight and it was pretty full.

                  Sorry, I forgot to add that detail. It's on 7th ave and 15th street.
