Fusha West

The southeast corner of 75th & Amsterdam Avenue welcomed its newest ‘it’ spot, Fusha West (sister restaurant of Amber East, West, Gramercy Park and West Village, also Aquamarine Murray Hill), which opened its doors in September 2008. Upon entering Fusha, you immediately notice the classic Asian styling mixed with modern industrial flare. Your dining experience is further enhanced by an eclectic arrangement of soothing music and intimate lighting. Rounding out our décor is the cocktail bar, a trendy yet relaxed scene, which welcomes all to a delectable menu of wines, sakes, and house created signature drinks, among which you are sure to find your next favorite. The Sushi and Kitchen Chefs are well trained in traditional Asian cuisines but do not hesitate to introduce their own modern nuances into every inspired dish. So come join us for lunch or dinner, where our knowledgeable and friendly staff, are more than happy to make your dining experience enjoyable.

"The Upper West Side still seems like a desert for restaurants before Lincoln Center--but this remains a 'keeper.' The sushi is fresh and rolls are imaginative. Good size portions. The restaurant is moving from its current site. [Still there as of May 6.] I hope it stays nearby."

"Nice food offerings; not the very best quality, but good for an enjoyable bite in the neighborhood with friends and/or family. Noise level (music, etc.) was WAY too high (hard to enjoy conversation at table)."

"Their Honey Walnut Chicken is one of the best dishes I have ever had at any restaurant. It's crispy with an amazing sweet honey glaze. I go back there just for that - but their Asian Tapas are also very good."

"Well prepared dishes. Great neighborhood spot. Local find, but feels like a global experience. Spacious layout makes it as great for groups as individuals. The food dresses the plate. Meals look good and taste great. Fresh ingredients, full of flavor. A unique Asian dining experience on the upper Westside. There is wonderful sushi prepared to order and Asian influenced plates."

"Restaurant is pretty and in a great location by the Beacon theatre. Service was great, not rushed. I was disappointed in the food though. Fried dumplings had little flavor , lobster sushi roll was mushy but creme brulee and miso soup were good."

"We frequently dine at Fusha West and had a horrible experience last night. We blame the man working in the kitchen wearing a maroon shirt. As we enjoyed what was left of our drinks this unkept man approached our table and rudely bellowed that the restaurant was closed and then retreated to his workstation. Prior to his appearance the heat was turned off in our area of the restaurant. Apparently, the table in the front section and the bar patrons were not asked to vacate their seats since they continued to dine/drink as we walked out of the restaurant. Too many options in the neighborhood for this to happen to regular patrons."
