Stopped here after walking around a bit and enjoyed the sushi as well as the tempura. Major benefit of it being a chain restaurant was the inclusion of English on the menu. The only downside is the location directly beneath the train tracks, which made it a bit noisy. Good safe bet for a tourist.

Great little spot near my hotel Dai-Ichi Hotel Tokyo I stumbled across on my first night. The menu is in English and has pictures for reference for non-Japanese speakers. There was ever a waiter available who spoke English - how nice! Sushi melted in my mouth. It was amazing and a very reasonable price. Glad I found a place nearby... More

We are repeat customers to this restaurant, for not only the excellent sushi and warm service, but for the vibrant and lively atmosphere of this restaurant. If you are looking for a 'quiet' and 'subdued' restaurant dining experience, this is definitely not the place! Highly recommend!

Literally on Yurakucho street (according to the street sign) and under the railroad tracks. Jam packed with locals, but we didn't have to wait in line. We were the only tourists in the restaurant. Perfect. Traveled with two friends. One LOVES sushi in America (rolls, sauces, avocado, etc), and the other said he did not like sushi (having only tried... More

For a chain sushi restaurant it does quite well. The sushi was fresh and well prepared. The service was very good. More seats available than the tiny sushi places at the Tsukiji market area. I think they remain as true to their sushi roots as possilble, while appealing to the largest client base. Tuna is the king here. Would recommend... More

Of course I'm a tourist, of course I'm not used to high quality sushis that you find in Japan. But those sushis were just amazing. We had dinner in this restaurant on Saturday evening. The atmosphere was great, very local clients not tourist at all…except us. I specially enjoyed the scallops sushis which were simply fabulous. To summarize: I do... More

This 24 hour restaurant is under the train tracks about 5 minutes walk from JR Yurakucho Station. English menu is available and the staff very friendly but the seafood is really fresh and quite delicious taste. Furthermore it is quite reasonably priced overall extremely good value for money. Have visited several times and both times have really enjoyed, we were... More

In Tokyo on business and it's my first night on my own. Staying at the Imperial Hotel and stumbled on Sushizanmai as I was looking for a place to have dinner. It's GREAT. Atmosphere is authentic - very crowded and all Japanese (save for me and three other tourists). Food was really good - and very reasonable. A toro platter... More

We went to this restaurant initially, as it was recommended on Tripadvisor and was close to the Imperial Hotel, we went the second time because we had found that whilst hectic, it was really friendly, well priced and the food was fresh and delicious. The waitress remembered us from our first visit and seemed delighted that we had returned and... More

After indulging in many $200 - $300 per head sushi dinners in Ginza, we tried this large, frenetic sushi restaurant under the train tracks near Yurakucho. Open all hours with a steady stream of patrons, considerably more blue collar than places like Kyubey. But the sushi was good and fresh. And you can get in and out in a hurry.... More
