  1. Konbu in Manalapan in Western Monmouth has my vote!

    1. Kanji in Shrewsbury - Is the best in my opinion.

      Avoid Sawa in Long Branch. Tinton Falls location is variable, but good during busy Spring - Summer. Winter Holiday time aovid it.

      I also likes Teak and The Downtown in Red Bank for a different pace.

        KAZU in Howel Rt 9 l is my favorite.

        1. re: Tapas52

          +1 for Kazu. Small quaint place with great rice and nice selection of hard to find fish. This past week we had madai.

            Ac Captain I hear you.......many times I noticed that Kazu is crowed with Asian people from all over the area...which says something goog! Kazu is an artist & his wife is an excellent friendly hostess.

            I just went last night...great uni, live scallop, hamachi, tuna, etc. I got a little down on this place at one point but after last night, it's at the top of my list for the county again.

        2. Taka in Asbury Park for a night out with a 6 pack of nice beers
          Izu in Long Branch for an unassumingly awesome meal, sit at the sushi bar with some beer from court liquors
          don't like the Sawa in Pier Village, gummy rice and poorly tended to tuna

          1. Yumi it is with Taka a close second
