Chef Aung Ko Won started making Sushi 23 years ago in Japan and in 2014 brought the experience of authentic traditional Japanese Edo-make style sushi to Brooklyn.
In 2017 they expanded to another location in West Village, New York, and have been serving some of the best sushi you would taste in the entire New York City.
What sets them apart from other sushi places is the delicate yet vibrant flavors they bring to the table. All their meals are prepared with authentic Japanese ingredients imported right from the source.

The restaurants have modern classy environments with woody contemporary décor and excellent lighting. The locations also have outdoor dining spaces. They are most popularly known for their omakase menu with pieces selected by the chef and placed together to create a delightful mosaic of flavors.
You can find items like marinated bluefin tuna, which happens to be the chef’s favorite, Squid, and Otoro on the menu. As compared to other mainstream sushi places, Sushi Katsuei offers the experience of rich delicate Japanese cuisine at some of the best rates you’ll find in New York City.
