Amazing sushi

We went to have lunch here, a friend booked it for us. The chef speaks good English and explain each sushi to us. Lunch set are 7,000 - 15,000 yen for sushi set and 20,000 - 30,000 yen for sashimi set. Really amazing sushi here. The rice, the fish and sauce really perfect. We had the 10,000yen... read more

I had a dinner with my friends from Hong Kong. He went to Yoshitake last month and asked me to book there. But, since it was fully booked, I book at Kanesaka. I have been to quite a few nice sushi restaurants, but this was one of the worst experience. Dishes are not special and the service was very poor.... More

Chef made the finest sushi in the City . Everything about this restaurant is good except it does not serve hot soup & fruit at end of the meal . To me , it is not a completed meal and I may not return .

The freshest purest sushi you will ever eat. Chef Kanesaka is a true artist and a superb sense of humor. We like to let Chef Kanesaka surprise us with his creations -- the funniest thing happened on our second visit years ago -- Chef Kanesaka set our sushi in front of us and my husband picked up a piece with...

My review of Kanesaka can be read at the page for Wadakura, which Tripadvisor erroneously filed - the two restaurants are in the same hotel.

This is sushi condensed down to its purest form. I'd say you have to know what this food is about to make judgements about it ( let alone to confuse it with other restaurants in the same hotel, as many reviewers seem to do. And no it's not an "office building" and it doesn't specialize in "Kobe steak." And no... More

Recommended by our hotel (Park Hyatt) as one of the best sushi restaurants in Tokyo. We dined here on out last night in Japan and it was a highly memorable meal. My husband had the 30000 yen meal and I had the 20000 yen one. I had never tried tuna cheek before but I still dream about it - probably... More

I went back to Kanesaka today on Ginza. I did not go there for few years but used to go in other outlets in Tokyo and Singapore. I must admit that it was a great experience with omakase menu prepared by Shinji Kanesaka himself. It was just perfect with a much higher caliber than other outlets run by same owner.... More

As with some other issues in finding the right streets/address in Tokyo this one caused me to walk around Ginza for about 1hr 15 min trying to find it. Luckily, I made it in before lunch finished and I did the $50 omakase (I think they also have $80 & $100 options) and some sake. I loved it. I almost... More

Mandarin Oriental Tokyo Concierge was right saying that Sushi Kanesaka is the best sushi restaurant in town. This restaurant is at Palace Hotel Tokyo and has a fixed menu. It is a small restaurant with 12 seats at the chef's counter. The sushi is delicious and very fresh. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
