Both of the Robongi locations are very popular and are packed on weekends with diners coming for their excellent sushi.
While sushi is their main draw, they also serve Japanese, Chinese and Thai dishes.
The Hoboken location has a slightly tacky nautical theme with wooden tables, walls adorned with crab shack signs, and hanging fish netting.
Low background music plays hits from the nineties.
Parking at the Hoboken is more difficult than the Weehawken location.
The Weehawken location is set inside the ferry terminal. It's decor is more attractive than the Hoboken location with a full service bar looking out over the water.
You can park in the port imperial parking and they will validate your ticket.
Service at both locations is friendly and attentive.
Both locations boast outdoor dining in warm weather with Weehawken having seating at the water's edge with a view of the NYC Skyline.
