I liked the food quality and freshness, but I thought the ambiance for the price you are paying should be much better... The service was good and the chef very friendly. Well deserved Michelin star based on the food quality - but, it is clear that for achieving more stars they will need to improve organization (the food took a... More

I have been a sushi fanatic for some time and have visited about a dozen premier sushi joints in Tokyo in the past. I had heard about Kanesaka before, but after learning that "Sushi Saito" (considered the best in Tokyo) is actually a branch of Kanesaka, I made a reservation through a friend who resides in Tokyo. The joint has... More

If you are planning to book this restaurant, you must request to be served by chef Sanpei-San. He makes the meal so much more fun! One of my favourite sushi chefs. Always so cheerful. Definitely get the more expensive option for omakase menu, it's worth every penny! Drinks are relatively cheaper here, left it happy and tipsy.

To be clear, this review refers to the Ginza location. There are other locations (including a restaurant in Singapore) and I have not been to them. We had great sushi at Kanesaka, but not the best sushi of our trip to Japan. The sush at Kyubey (Keio Plaza location, not Ginza) and Sushi Harasho (Osaka) was markedly better in both... More

If you are into Sushi and don't mind to spend some serious money (about USD 200 per person) for a dinner, visit Kanesaka. The food is top quality, the chef speaks ok English and is happy to talk to foreigners. The place is a bit hidden - Underground floor and the entrance not well marked. But a simple smartphone map...

Made a booking at 6:30pm based a friend's recommendation and we arrived 15 min earlier. It was already full and some customers were just finishing their meal so it was obviously very popular. Our chef's English was good and he asked us which price set we want (20,000 yen or 30,000) and what food we did not like. We just... More

We went here expecting a really nice omakase sushi lunch but instead got an average overpriced 10-course meal. The sushi was good, no doubt but I would have rather spent my money somewhere else. We were seated with two Singaporeans and weren't served by Chef Kanesaka. The other end of the sushi bar had a different chef and locals eating... More

From my first visit in this basement sushi restaurant mid 2005 until now, some things have changed, and some things have stayed the same. The good news: -top notch sushi. Kanesaka-san was one of the youngest chefs to have his namesake restaurant in Ginza; at the time, in order to make a name for himself, he was reputed to be... More

The sushi here is simply different, the taste is fresh and rich. I believe the Sushi chef technique makes the difference.

Very good, tender sushi indeed, best quality, but also a little boring; But definitely too expensiv compared to other star cooks in Japan (20'000¥)! Horrible, coarsely atmosphere, very gruff, too much impolite and mocking manner of the chef, really not the japanese way, he seems to be frustrated; there were nearly no Japanese, only tourists. Once and never again!
