Slightly underwhelmed, but still good.

3 Posted on 07 / 08 / 2013

I had looked at their menu online and saw that they had more vegetarian options than I expected, and their prices weren't half bad. Overall my meal was nice but nothing too impressive. My tofu was alright and the sushi tasted fresh, which was good. Our waiter seemed like a little bit of a ditz but the service wasn't bad. I'd be willing to go back and try some of their other vegetarian options. It was good-- but just good. Not amazing or spectacular, but a good choice if you want options and good prices and a trendy atmosphere.

Pros: Good prices, Range of options, Trendy vibe
Cons: Mediocre service, Very noisy, Long wait

Veg beware

1 Posted on 04 / 20 / 2013

Have been to the Naked Tchopstix on 96th street multiple times and have been told a vegetarian dish was suitably vegan or not depending on the server. Have consequently stuck to veggie sushi minus cream cheese. Lunched there today and asked again about suitability of dishes and was informed by wait staff that basically nothing was even really vegetarian. All of the sauces in tofu dishes contained animal by-products and none of the "vegetarian" dishes including the soups could technically fit the bill because all contained MSG that had meat (believe she said beef) flavoring as an ingredient. Needless to say we were blown away.

pretty good

the veggie tempura is great, but like others said, they often put crab or other seafood in with the boxed meals even after telling them i want everything vegetarian. the service is good, everyone is very friendly and you always get everything very fast. i think the prices are pretty high for what you get, but it's still delicious!

Pros: good food, fast service, nice atmousphere
Cons: high priced, sometimes give you non vegetarian sides

Weak in food quality and service

1 Posted on 09 / 28 / 2008

i was really looking forward to a nice vegetarian restaurant and drove all the way to find Naked Chopstix. But the food was really way off. I asked for vegetarian but my food included crab sticks. The Japanese food was very disappointing and sushi was loosely made. Definitely have to improve if it wishes to attract vegetarians. The tempura sauce is so poor that i felt horrible and cheap after eating it. the food pricing is also high. For such low quality and service, we paid $70 for 2 pax. Unless there are major improvements to chef and the disinterested servers, i will never go back nor recommend anyone who has tried decent Japanese food to visit. So disappointed cos we were really so eager to visit it. Pls improve drastically so you can really serve vegetarians.

Pros: location
Cons: Poor quality of food, disinterested servers, pricing overpriced

Amazing Sushi and Servers!

4 Posted on 01 / 04 / 2008

I have to warn everyone before I write about the food... This place pretty much requires reservations on weekends. If no reservations are made, you will end up waiting in the doorway for up to 40 minutes. It gets very crowded Friday and Saturday nights. So watch out! The wait is totally worth it, though!

The menu is AMAZING! There are a ton of veggie rolls and even veggie nigiri! If you want sushi and aren't sure what to get, try the Vegetarian Sushi Set. It comes with a little bit of everything. Vegetarian options are marked on the menu, however some of the non-sushi items contain fish. Check the descriptions closely before ordering.

The staff is generally helpful as well! My friend and I go once a week for lunch. We always had the same waitress, who was vegetarian as well. She helped me pick out a few things and also create some custom rolls.

Overall, the food and staff are great. The restaurant layout itself is a little crowded, but they're expanding now! Hopefully they'll actually have a waiting area after the construction is done! Definitely check this place out!

Pros: Amazing Vegan Sushi, Helpful Staff, Large Portions
Cons: No Waiting Area, A Bit Cramped, Can Be Crowded

Some good vegan options

4 Posted on 06 / 20 / 2007

The much acclaimed tofu tempura is not on the menu. My server seemed purplexed when I asked for it, saying she had never heard of such a dish there. That said, she was very accomodating and pointed the menu items that could be veganized. I had bibimbop with tofu. Which was pretty good.

Pros: good food, friendly service
Cons: limited veg options
