    We came here for the second time and would joyfully come again. Finally tried the sea urchin which was super fresh and tasty. Also had a few of their sushi but you cannot leave this place deprived of having the udon, it's astonishing.

    Katsuno is a real Japanese restaurant that very problematic to find in Queens area. Not like bunch of fake Japanese restaurants located around the area, Katsuno serves excellent quality foods with elegant taste. If you are looking for Americanized Japanese foods, this is not the place because they only serve old-style, real and good excellence Japanese foods.

    Katsuno is one of those true concealed gems. The restaurant is really secret among surrounding stores. I literally walked past the place a few times before realizing where Katsuno actually was. The relatively dull exterior design continues on in to the restaurant. As opposed to dimly lit with blaring electric music like some other trendy restaurants, Katsuno instills a true traditional Japanese feel with bright lights and a rather simple setup

    I exposed this place while running down Metropolitian Ave. It's easy to miss with no gap view into the restaurant and no big signage. You can spot this restaurant with the little Japanese lantern hung outside of the restaurant. Since it's a area spot, we thought we would check it out

    Concealed but cute Japanese restaurant located in Forest Hills neighbor. There were not many people when we went there on Commemorative Day weekend. We had steamed eggs, sushi, and grilled black cod. Overall the food was okay, but a bit too salty. My bf and I kept drinking water after the dinner. Sorry, I don't think I will come back again

    Cute little hidden restaurant. Loved the sea urchin egg tofu and the Magritte duck very much. The sashimi and sea urchin were very fresh here

    The restaurant seemed clean and was received by the server upon entering. There was no heat, but there was an portable heat that wasn't doing its job. Dined without captivating off my coat. Food was middling, below average. We had two people and well-ordered 6 dishes. One dish that bothered me the most was the filet mignon; the meat texture didn't look like filet mignon

    My daughter loved the Miso Broth so much that she took her dinner home and had 3 more plates of soup. The atmosphere is lovely and the food is excellent! We will be coming back.

    This is my new favorite Japanese restaurant in NY. Quality of the fish is very high - considering it was a Sunday. their speciality udon was very nice, el dente and subtle smokey flavour. The rolls also very good - eel avcado. Value for money - 3 ppl $100 with beer.\

    The only reason that I didn't give them four stars is that the pours of sake was not teeming as it is tradition in the Japanese culture (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sa…) - we each had a 2nd round, I gave the waitress a chance to exchange herself, but the results were the same (see picture). It was really quiet here on a Thursday evening at 7pm. The staff contained of 2 people, the man behind the sushi counter, and a waitress

    This is thoughtful, authentic Japanese food in a cozy, non-pretentious, close setting. I'm not sure whether it was contained on Time Out NY but it should. It is one of those places which one would travel to from any other part of the city just for the food. Excellent

    Overpriced middling Japanese food. Super disappointed. Not sure why they got good appraisals. There are tons of Japanese restaurants in Manhattan that serve astonishing food with $50 per person. We left just feeling we wanted our $100 back

    Best Katsuno and Japaneae restaurant in New York. No question. The sushi is fresh. Delightful. Mr. Seo is a biosphere class sushi chef who also adds a wonderful selection of traditional Japanese dishes that you don't get elsewhere. My wife and daughters regularly visit from Manhattan, returning to the old nabe. While there are many good and excellent Japanese restaurants in NYC Katsuno remains our favorite

    A good Japanese place in forest hills. The decor is simple, nothing special but the food is well done and there is a good sake selection.

    This place is a hidden gem in Forest Hills. The place is small, probably can only sit no more than 30 people and there's no sushi bar. Reservation is highly recommended as all the table had 'reserved' on it so if you just walk in you will most likely not get seated. Food was absolutely delicious and fish was really fresh

    Katsuno is the best Japanese restaurant in Queens! Hands down! My husband, our networks and I love this place and dine here often. I can't believe I haven't checked-in before. Must be cause I am always so excited when I get there. You feel as if you are sitting in a restaurant in Japan. From the instant you walk into their founding you are treated like family! They have a great selection of sake. Everything on the menu is to die for.

    Tucked away discreetly on Metropolitan is this excellent little Japanese restaurant. With a astonishingly wide variety of both raw fish and well prepared cooked assortments. The chef clearly takes great pride in his work and creates some stunning and delectable treats. The ambiance is humble with countless jazz often playing and the concentrating and warm service of the owner.

    It's rare when a local restaurant is excellent but Katsuno in Forest Hills has some of the best authentic Japanese food I've ever had. The Spanish Mackerel Tataki in Scallion red onion myoga sauce was excellent. The Chilled cooked Magritte Duck yuzu kosyo was superb. The Sashimi Dinner was unresolved

    There are some serious operational lacks here that make you feel like it may be worth trekking to the East Community for Japanese food instead. My main issue was the service. There was ONE waitress in addition to the husband and wife team serving dinner to a packed restaurant. We had to beg the waitress to refill our water/tea, and even so we had to wait for it. The wife also forgot our order a twosome times...

    I was searching for true Japanese food in NYC as well as other good restaurants to go to when we go into Manhattan. We thought instead of taking the LIRR, we obvious to drive in to my great aunts house nearby to park and walk to the subway station. We went into the city and went to see Les Miserables on Broadway. Great musical in a 1920s theater. We went on the underpass back and made it to the restaurant

    The food was juicy!!! More on the traditional side. I tried a cold soup and it was tasty, light and refreshing. It is a small place. The people are very sweet an efficient. I would certainly indorse it and go back to try other things!!! Additional star: They were very helpful with the baby!!!

    Came here on a dinner date with my boyfriend. The food is good, plates are on the small side. But that is usually the case for Japanese food. I enjoyed this place because there is a good variety of heated food and sushi. The sushi is very fresh and the rice was cooked flawlessly. Service was on the slow side.

    This invisible little Japanese restaurant is a bit pricy. The place is banquet only place, no lunch. My husband came here with his daughter many years ago so he obvious to take me, his mom and his daughter to have dinner there. The four of us went into this little place and had a great dinner. The server was very friendly particularly when my husband started speaking in Japanese

    Food is true Japanese, he even makes the wasabi from actual horseradish. Sashimi is always fresh. Only downside is it's pricey but it's worth it

    I love good sushi but getting it in FH is not easy. Picked this place on Yelp, and obvious to test drive it. On Friday night it was justly empty but then again its summer so many places are not that packed. We were met with smiles from the staff and quickly offered drinks.
