I've been going to this place since the first week it opened, and it is my #1 favorite sushi bar in the city. An excellent downtown alternative to Edo Sushi.
The prices are reasonable and the sushi quality is high. The most expensive specialty rolls are $12, and the regular rolls average $4 - $5. There are two rolls my friends and I always order: Geisha/Ginza rolls (eel or salmon, cream cheese, tamago, tobiko, cucumber, and avocado + more, deep fried with a drizzle of sweet sauce), and the spicy tuna roll (they use homemade creamy spicy sauce instead of siracha, and it has fresh chopped scallions that give it a slight bite). Other regular customers we've talked to while there swear by the spicy tuna tartar (which does use the siracha - the mere smell makes my eyes water). Lunch comes with soup and salad, and dinner comes with a cucumber salad.
There are also Korean specialties on the menu. There is a Korean buffet at lunchtime which I've seen, but haven't had a chance to try. Plus, I'm such a sushi-head that I always get distracted.
The service here is always good, and if you come regularly they will remember you. It is not unusual that they will bring you a sample of something free of charge - a new roll, or a new menu item they are trying. On different visits we've had samples of the tuna tartar, a New York roll (featuring apples), mussel soup, and other dishes.
Lastly, they just received their liquor license, and have a great selection of sakes, wines, and Korean and Japanese beers. Try the Choya plum sake - absolutely delicious.
