Typhoon Lounge: "Great affordable sushi" Typhoon Lounge - CLOSED Tip by lulu_girl

Ohh...I do love Typhoon. The decor is great, the wait staff is friendly, and the sushi is reasonably priced. Sure, there are expensive things on the menu, but they also have 'early bird' specials. Furthermore, they serve a wide selection of Japanese beverages (lime drinks, beer, etc...) Usually the wait isn't long if the restaurant is full, but they do have an upstairs and a downstairs which is nice. Quite roomy. Just remember that they don't open for dinner until 5:30pm.

Now, it's true that there are other, 'better' (and incredibly expensive) sushi restaurants in NYC, but I'd honestly give this restaurant an 8 out of 10. The fish is fresh, the rolls are well made and the seaweed/rice isn't so sweet that it'll distract from the fish. I hate that.

Favorite Dish: Tekka Maki; Tekkadon; fresh salad with avocado and fresh tuna slices. YUM!
