a great localEvery neighborhood deserves a reliable local Japanese restaurant and this is mine. I order from here all the time and am never disappointed. The rolls are packed and the duck appetizer is mouth watering. A great place with value to match.
Good sushi for a good dealI have been going to Mottsu for years and not once have I ever been disappointed. I would recommend their tuna & salmon sushi and sashimi. Their rolls are not that fabulous. The atmosphere is clean and non-pretentious and the wait staff friendly.
Yuk!Mottsu is getting worse and worse! The food is beyond terrible quality wise. The sushi is fishy and the pieces small, the entrees smell like institution food. Very disappointed.
Penguins eat fishUnlike most other neighboring restaurants, Mottsu offers a nice, quiet relief to the pretentious, overbearing "chic" restaurants in Nolita. Mottsu offers a good selection of fresh sushi and kitchen entrees for a reasonable price.
Great FoodI never have to wait more then 10 minutes to be seated. Food is great. Service is prompt. Best Rolls I've had in the city. If you feel adventurous, order your non standard Japanese dishes.
Great twilight meal dealFriday night and we needed a quick bite before going out. The 5-7pm meal deal was a pleasant surprise. For $15 we dined on delicious tiny smoked hor d'ouevres, fresh sashimi, great sushi (my man had chicken teriyaki), miso soup (or salad), green tea ice cream and green tea. Great value and not too filling. We will indeed be back.
Ever declining qualityI used to love to eat at Mottsu, where a very friendly staff of waitresses would always great us. But in the last 2 years this lovely staff has been replaced by an all male one, which is not very accomodating nor extremely friendly. The sushi has also declined in quality, especially since the prices are not extremely reasonable for what you get. I would rather pay a little more and have amazing sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi or go the truly cheaper route near St. Mark's place where all the Japanese restaurants are (there you get the same quality if not even better at much better prices).
