High Praise for Basking Ridge's Tsuru Japanese Cuisine

New York Times review cites good food, ample menu in review.

Tsuru Japanese Cuisine in Basking Ridge features a strong seafood menu with well-prepared food – especially the fresh and delicious sushi and sashimi, according to a review in the Sunday New York Times Feb. 17.

The restaurant, which opened in 2010, offers an expansive menu featuring 12 soups and salads, 13 sushi bar appetizers, 22 kitchen appetizers, 27 rolls and hand rolls.

The reviewer recommends the generously portioned tender unagi don (with eel) and the luxurious crispy duck — leg, breast slices and rolls.

The restaurant is located at 413 King George Road, Basking Ridge.

I believe the restaurant opened before 2010

New owner in 2010. Never disappointed since then.

I have been going for years and love the food and service. My only complaint is that they serve their tea in a cup that is too hot to hold. (It has no handle and they fill the earthenware cup to the brim. It makes it undrinkable.)
