We were strolling in the Tsukji fish market district (which a piece of experience in itself) and we saw people queueing in front of this fish restaurant. After a patient wait in the heat, we had a wonderful reward as the food is just perfect and the sushi chef prepares the order under your eyes, if you sit at the... More

We have now been to Sushizanmai 5 times, twice in the last few weeks and three times on a trip 5 years ago. Just to give you my sushi credentials, we eat great sushi at home usually once or twice a week. Sushizanmai is fairly big restaurant with a large counter and a half dozen tables downstairs and many tables... More

I use remember when I was a kid, mum and dad use to take me here. Now I take my own family. I can definitely say, this restaurant is apart of me. The tables and chairs has changed from the humble beginnings, the atmosphere has also changed (a bit more chic) but still the same good old fashion service. Great... More

We visited Sushzanmai in Shibuya for my birthday. Regular tuna sushi: amazing quality; same for the salmon. Tempura delicious and crispy. Nice sakes by the glass and small bottle. Very very reasonable. Individual regular salmon and tuna nigiri ca. 120 yen per piece. My wife and I ordered up a storm. Damage = 45 gbp. Not bad for an excellent... More

A friend recommended this place and concierge at hotel helped me find it. I haven't eaten a lot of sushi but his place changed my future eating plans. They have english menus so gaijin can find what they want. Large selection of fresh negiri and quite anti more. Don't expect any California Rolls though. I had 4 kinds of shrimp,... More

Came here early in the morning after a big night out and have to say one of the best sushi experiences I've ever had. Coming here super early near the fish market. Don't think you could get any fresher! Sushi for breakfast! Try the urchin and fatty tuna varieties! Visited a very long time ago but felt it deserved a... More

As other reviewers mentioned, this is a very traditional japanese restaurant, with very good quality and extremely fresh food. Sashimi and Sushi here are probably like nothing you had before. Staff don't speak good english, but they have a menu in other languages with pictures, so you just point at what you want and you're set. Now, even though it's... More

I visit Sushizanmai Honjin because my family recommend and I was not disappointed. This is a very traditional Japanese restaurant and they are good at sashimi, they offer some fish that is hard to find in other Japanese Restaurants. The sushi chefs prepare everything from scratch right in front of you, grabbing the fish from a huge tank! You can... More
