We were a large family getting together to celebrate our artist’s amazing public art installations. Sen Sakawa not only accommodated us for earlier seating, the food was amazingly delicious & creative, the service was attentive & the fun party atmosphere was perfect.

The fusion of Japanese and Peruvian cuisine guarantees a surprise on every plate. The wait staff was just attentive enough and the no tipping policy a pleasure. The only issue was the prix fixe menu was only available if everyone at the table ordered from it. It seemed a petty rule.

We had sushi rolls and nigiri. The food was amazing. The server was even more amazing. Attentive but not obtrusive. Extremely knowledgeable on the menu. Talked us through ideas to make sure we had a great experience. Will definitely go back.

I love this place. It’s right by my office and I’ll go with colleagues and friends for a post work dinner. Also, close to the theaters without the madness of Times Sq restaurants. Food is very innovative. Drinks are a bit expensive. All inclusive “no tipping” policy is something I’d like to see more of in NYC.

Tables too close together. Very loud. Slow service. Sushi was ok, but way overpriced. Pork belly was tough and tasteless. Very disappointing.
Don’t need to go back, there are much better sushi restaurants in Midtown.

Very disappointed. We chose the Nikkei tasting menu. We had high expectations, as we love Japanese and Peruvian cuisines. However, most of the dishes didn't have the freshness, flavours or subtlety that I was expecting. And the waiters didn't seem to have adequate knowledge about the various courses. Came away very disappointed!

I discovered this restaurant because it was one of the few that would hold a table for 12 without requiring a private room on OpenTable. I also was intrigued by the Japanese/Peruvian cuisine.

The food was excellent. The fish for the 🍣 was delicious and fresh. It's some of the best sushi I've ever had. From the rolls to the omakase, it exceeded expectations.

I found the service to be a bit erratic. At times the servers seemed confused and disruptive. They did do a good job of keeping our glasses filled and timing the food.

Overall, I'd go back and bring my family. I enjoyed the food, ambiance and friendly service.

Sushi was OK, but not worth traveling out of my way for and did not live up to the reviews that drew me in.

Huge fan of Japanese- Peruvian sushi fusion, but the flavor combinations alternated between too muted to have an impact or being a bit strange.

Service was very friendly, but inexperienced and lacked attention to detail.

Perhaps better for happy hour.

Was given a terrible table and an equally awful server. After 2 underwhelming apps, we waited for our rolls for 35 minutes then asked about the delay. A full 10 minutes later we had to ask again and the server barely acknowledged us. We eventually got our sad looking rolls when the manager came over to apologize and cover our bill. With all of the choices in Manhattan, why would I ever try this place again?
