Top notch and definitely worth the value for omíkase. The backyard dining was so adorable and loved what they did to adapt to the pandemic restrictions and still provide a great dining experience

I had passed by this place on my walks but never tried it. My boyfriend wanted sushi for his birthday dinner, and Sushi Nonaka had a garden in the back so we tried it. We got the omakase dinner. Since we weren’t at the counter, the sushi was served three at a time, better than all at once. All the fish is imported from Japan and was fresh and delicious. We had Sapporo beer in draft (our favorite) and a small carafe of Good presentation, very friendly staff. My boyfriend’s one minor complain was that the hand rolls seemed small to him. On the other hand, I appreciated that we weren’t filling up on rice. Final verdict : expensive but worth it.

I’ve spent a lot of time in Japan and also frequent sushi places around the city, and I was impressed. It was an authentic Japanese sushi place...you know right when you walked in. The fish was amazingly fresh, good variety, good service, and the outside garden terrace in summer is spot on. Prices are very reasonable for the quality. In my neighborhood, so definitely will be going back!

I had gotten Sushi Nonanka for takeout a couple times before finally being able to dine outside there, and it was amazing. Especially during COVID times, the back patio is a great outdoor seating option, as you are away from people walking by on the street/sidewalks. We each got the sushi set, and everything was so fresh and delicious. I already can't wait to go back!

They are making a great effort to provide a lovely experience during this awful pandemic. Worth supporting. Their style of sushi is different. Edomae. Each piece has been marinated and is very tender with a bit of sauce applied. More typical of what you get in Japan. I had the omakase plus a few extra pieces. Let’s try to keep these guys in business!

carefully prepared omakase - coming at you very quickly. had a few fish I never tried before - and were delicious. even though space is in basement, is light. AND.. unusual for sushi bars, seats very comfortable. as of march 7 no liquor license, but I am sure that will change.

We wanted to try out Sushi Nonaka because we read very good things on Eater. Everything about the restaurant was top notch. The experience was totally authentic and we felt we could have been in Japan. It is a small intimate restaurant and has a lovely vibe.
Every bite we ate was outstanding. Service the same - both the owner and the manager were delightful and warm. We were told the chef was an expert and had been doing this for many years in Japan.
We are foodies and love to eat - must say this was the best meal we ate in a long time! A great addition to the West Side. Go quick because we are certain you won’t be able to get in once the word gets out !

Great addition to the UWS. We dined there this past weekend and were very pleasantly surprised. The space is truly well done. Loved the fact that is a “secret” place in the basement. The owner was very gracious. They still do not have their liquor license, but offered complementary sake/wine (nice touch). If you are looking for a really nice Omakase that is priced fairly @$125, you will really enjoy Nonaka.

Decent sushi. Did not taste vinegar in the rice so it was pretty bland but held together nicely. The fish tastes nice and fresh and was overall good. Prices here are very reasonable as well. Not the best sushi I’ve had but pretty good for the cost.

Outstanding service and customer service. Delicious omakase served with salad dressed with homemade yuzu dressing covered in thin slices of tuna, well prepared miso soup and smooth delicate chanwanmushi. Presentation was restrained Japanese style, with beautiful pottery. Warm welcoming atmosphere created by both the manager and sushi chef.

They serve very good quality of sushi omakase at reasonable price including dessert, chawamushi and miso soup. This becomes my favorite sushi place. Hope they continue to keep the quality of foods and price as it is now!
