    1. How low is low? I think Yasuda has a $24 prix fixe lunch (though prices may have gone up) but it looks to be on the small side, portion-wise. Although you can always add on more pieces...

        I believe I had the prix fixe sashimi for about that price -- not small, very good, and a low-key place. The prix fixe sushi looked as good. Quite a bargain for excellent quality.

          Can you give some rough details on number of pieces and if the price is still the same? Thanks!

            Gosh, it's been several months...I just remember the fish was very fresh and tender, nice variety, and it was not a skimpy portion -- don't remember the number of pieces in the sashimi. I also don't know whether the price has increased.

      2. It is uptown but one of the better Sushi deals at lunch can be had at Inase on 82nd and First. Their sushi lunch has five pieces of excellent fish and of a good variety. You also get your choice of roll, the yellowtail is particularly good.

        1. I really like Tenzan Sushi on 2nd and 52nd. It is well priced ($12.95 Sushi lunch special w/ one roll and six peices), friendly, lively and sharp. I have been 12+ times since they opened last year, and it has been consitantly good.

            Tenzan is such poor quality, and the "skill" of the chefs is non-existent.
