First Review by AlanC

Underwhelming - Edit

Had high expectations for Beyond Sushi and unfortunately it did not live up to them. The food is ok and the prices are fair, but we were not particularly impressed with the quality (although the selection is quite creative and interesting, at least on paper) and both the space and the service were disappointing. Best option is probably to order as quickly as possible and eat elsewhere, there is very limited seating anyway.

Great vegan sushi in small crowded eatery - Edit

The vegan sushi here is fantastic in every way; very creatively and well prepared. The prices and service are also decent. The place is small and crowded, so more suited for a quick meal than luxurious dining.

Pros: Great sushi, Healthy, Decent price and service

Cons: Crowded, few places to sit

Ahhhhhmayzing Sushi! - Edit

Been here a few times over two visits to NYC. Some unique sushi combos, great soups, and killer dumplings! There should be more seating, but when it comes to the food you can't go wrong!

Pros: Great food, Hekpful staff, Decent prices (lunch special!)

Cons: Limited seating, no bathroom

REALLY INTERESTING PLACE, AND GOOD! :) - Edit

Really good food! The sushi was delicious and really special! We had the spicy ramen and it was really tasty (and spicy). But the best we had was the dumplings with sundried tomatoes and smoked pumpkin, amazing! The kimchi is a little bit sweet for my taste but was good.

We are definitely coming back!

Pros: Really creative food with a lot of different and s

Cons: They close too early when you are a tourist ;)

BEYOND DISAPPOINTING!!! - Edit

So we have gotten from here one other time and loved the food but decided to deliver verses going to pick it up!!!! Their site says to go to Grubhub to order which they are not found on anywhere!!! got the impression we could order on the site itself and so we tried to place an order only to be told we were not in their "free delivery" area with no option to pay for the delivery. Needless to say, my annoyance is at the misleading information NOT the food which is delicious and should be corrected asap!!!

Unique and creative sushi - Edit

I tend to be used by the typical veggie rolls that many places offer but Beyond Sushi definitely lives up to its name.
They have an interesting variety of types of sushi that maybe a first sight wouldn't be so amazing but when you try them you know you did good at coming to eat at this place.
I also tried the spicy wrap with sriacha and it's unbeatable!

Pros: Interesting rolls, Tasty food

My Father in Law loved it! - Edit

I went to see a concert with my Father-in-Law and we needed to grab a dinner. He eats meat, but was game with trying a vegan restaurant. We stopped in here and he LOVED his rolls. The prices are on the high end, but I don't think anything too crazy for New York City. Seating is limited and there isn't a huge menu. BUT they have it so you can get something other than just a sushi roll, which make eating out in a group easier.

This place was super yummy but very small so seating is limited. It is perfect for some take out. There is also a park nearby that you can take your food over to.

Pros: Great sushi, Fast service, Great for takeout

Cons: Super small, Not much seating

Great place! - Edit

I was addicted to this place for a couple of months. I don't usually get the sushi, but their wraps are unreal. Super fulling but still clean, healthy, and flavorful. Everyone is always so nice when I come in and they prepare the food pretty quickly. There are a lot of vegan options in the Union Sq. area and this is my favorite for an on-the-go meal.

Great vegan sushi - Edit

I love the sushi here. The location near Union Square is small and looks meant for takeout. The sushi was great - fresh and tasty. I was disappointed the food was all served in takeout containers/plastic.

Pros: Great food, Inexpensive

Cons: Food served in takeout containers, Minimal seating

THE BEST - Edit

As a vegan for over 40 years this is my new favorite restaurant in NYC. Used to be NOBU, but no longer.

Sushi and desserts are 5 star items.

Tasty, creative, fresh, extremely palatable.
George the manager was very helpful with my delivered order.

Please open on South Beach in Miami Beach so I can have these items where I live!!!

Will be returning before I fly home.

flavorful and beautiful - Edit

The sushi is amazing. Large amounts of focus is put on presentation, but flavor is key. I've been back a few times, a must-visit.

Yummy, but not protein - Edit

I really like the sushi at Beyond Sushi, but it makes me miss Soy and Sake all the more. Beyond Sushi creatively makes different combinations of delicious vegetables and toppings to come up with their rolls. My only complaint is that the rolls are just vegetables, so there are very limited protein sources. There may be one or two rolls that have tofu, but that's it. Otherwise, a very yummy place for vegan sushi!

Cons: limited protein, limited seating

Good creative vegan sushi - Edit

We got some rolls and had them in one of the comunal tables in Chelsea Market. The mighty mushroom and the spicy mango rolls turned out to be delicious and fun to eat. The market is busy and makes a good option for a quick stop.

Pros: Unexpensive, Good food, Fun

creative, tasty sushi - Edit

I visited the Chelsea Market location- they have a lot of different options and make it fresh right there. I got the two roll and two piece combo and enjoyed everything! The staff was also very friendly. Worth a visit for sure!

Good food but not the best Vegan sushi out there - Edit

I was excited to try Beyond Sushi after hearing such good things about it. The place was much smaller and more informal than I expected so it was a bit tight ordering and then waiting for the food. I decided to eat in but because there are so few tables, I had to eat with another groups of people at a table since there wasn't enough space on my own.

The sushi itself was quite good. I actually liked the wraps better than the sushi because I think they and more flavor and texture. The sushi itself was very healthy and all made of straight vegetables so it is definitely not just an imitation of fish sushi, but tries to define itself with new combinations and types of vegetables. However if you're looking for good vegan sushi that imitates fish, Shojin in Los Angeles cannot be beat, check it out!

Pros: Interesting take of vegetable sushi, Relatively fast

Cons: Small place, Not a wide variety of sushi

the best sushi!! - Edit

I LOVE sushi, like a lot. But for vegans the options are usually just something simple; cucumber roll, avocado roll, you get what I'm saying. I mean those are good but of course, they get boring. So when I discovered this place I was in heaven! Everything was so delicious, just the perfect amount of flavors and everything combined amazingly. Would recommend this place to anyone! Definitely not only to be enjoyed by vegans, everyone should try :)

Best sushi period! - Edit

So...I like Sushi. I mean, I usually get a cucumber roll or avocado roll or something like that. Now I realize how incredibly boring and unimaginative most vegan sushi is now that I have been to Beyond Sushi! It's not just food, they are works of art. They combine flavors, and the right amount of ingredients to create truly beautiful vegan rolls. I had the mushroom roll, the sriracha mango roll, and three of their hand rolls. They were delicious, filling, and inexpensive - at 6.95 a roll it hardly sets you back for the quality. A clear winner and a must-eat for any veg person in NYC!

Pros: Amazing menu, Good customer service, Inexpensive

Cons: Small place - need franchises!

I'm converted! - Edit

I was never really a fan of sushi before- this place was the first time that I REALLY enjoyed eating it, to the point I wanted more! I'm a fussy eater too so I assumed I wouldn't enjoy it, but the different flavours and sauces just worked SO WELL together! Obviously it's very fresh food too, and great to have for lunch and share with others. This place is tiny though, only enough room for a handful of people- so I'd go outside standard lunchtime to sit and enjoy it like we did!

Pros: lots of flavour, fresh

Cons: tiny space, lack of seating

A great experience - Edit

I've had vegan sushi elsewhere and been generally disappointed, but this stuff was really a pleasure to eat. It was fresh, light, tasty and offered a variety of flavors and textures.

If I ever go back to NYC, I will certainly check this place out again.

Pros: Variety of flavors, Textures/mouthfeel, Vegan

Cons: Inside a noisy mall

So fresh - Edit

I love that there is a vegan sushi joint, but I am sad that this place isn't larger. You walk in, and if there's too many people, you may walk out. They make the sushi for you right in front of you, so, it's fun to see them create your meal!

The ingredients are super fresh and unique, as far as vegan sushi. They also have a great choice in rice paper rolls, regular salads and side salads. Plus, they have some healthy vegan cookies/ desserts - love the puddings, any puddings! Although I have loved everything I have tried for sushi, I don't like having buckwheat noodles in the wrap, but that's just me - it tastes funny. Other than that, this place is awesome. When I dream of sushi now, I dream of this place. It's so comforting to not have to worry about cross contamination! It's also great not to have to see dead fish parts or to smell it.

Love this place! Only 4 cows though because of size… and I kind of wish they had some fried stuff. :) Super healthy and so delicious!

Pros: Vegan vegan vegan, Desserts, Super fresh

Cons: Seating/ size, Nothing fried...
