This was an amazing experience beyond anything we ate in Japan. It was life changing and highlight of our trip. We went in at 2:00pm and there was no line. The staff are friendly and can communicate well with us in English. There are approximately 8-10 seats. You can taste the high quality of the sashimi. We had the Sakura... More

I'm not one to stand in lines, but the 90 minute wait to have sushi here at 9:30am on a Saturday morning was definitely worth it. There was a large selection of fresh fish; the staff was attentive and the prices were in-line with the other restaurants in the area. Check out the fish market afterwards. A not-to-be-missed unique experience.

That should be on every todo list for Tokyo visitors, get up early see the fish market and have the best sushi you can get. Be prepared to queue for a while although it's early many people go there and it's definitely worth it. The sushi was amazing and a unique experience for sushi lovers like me!

Decent prices for great quality, this was definitely the freshest sushi I have ever had. The chef prepares sushi in front of us. The fresh toro and scallops are definitely must try!

Awesome sushi market experience. Roughly 35 minute wait, which was worth it. Food was insanely delicious.

We went here based on tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The sushi were superb! Tasty, fresh and well-prepared. It took us 1.5hrs to line up and it's all worth it! Will come back!

We found this place after visiting the fish market. The place is small so we waited around an hour to get in (go there early because rapidly the queue doubled). The sushis were really good and fresh. Some options on the menu were not available (depending of the stock). Prices are a bit expensive but it worth it. Highly recommended

Excellent food and service. I'd suggest to try the daily special on the wall instead of just a normal set. However, the queue is terrible in weekend.

Sushi as fresh as it gets, warm and excellent service, cosy place. Basically the best sushi we've ever had, and it doesn't cost you the hours wait like the hyped up Sushi Dai a couple of doors away. Why wait for hours when you can walk in here and immediately served one of the best sushi of your life? I... More
