We felt good as we were let inside. We had been up all night after flying in from the US. We were on a long layover (14+ hours) so we had a lot of time to kill. We waited for the Subway station to open shortly after 5 A.M. so were here early in the morning for breakfast. We decided... More

Being a Japanese food fan, Sushizanmai is now one of my recommendations when one is in Tokyo. It has many branches all throughout Tokyo as it originally began from a stall in the Tsukiji market. I randomly tried the branch near Shibuya at it was really great value and tasty. Comparing this to Chojiro which was highly rated in Kyoto,... More

We were in Tokyo on an extended layover so we really wanted to get lucky and find a really good Sushi place. We went here for dinner. We relied on my phone navigation to find it through back streets. At the first floor sushi bar they asked if we wanted smoking. We said no so they sent us upstairs, where... More

Tuna (Akami) was definitely better than those served by other franchised Sushi restaurants. Fatty tuna (Chu-toro) was superb too and couldn't go wrong! I tried a few other basic nigiris and they were all pretty good, though Wasabi was probably powder-based. The only unfortunate thing was that just when I sat down at the counter and made my first order,... More

The 1st time I went to this Sushizanmai, introduced by a local friend and so far the best of the branches I tried wihtout a doubt, I had the maguro zanmai (the special tuna set). When I hit the Aburi Toro ("flamed" fatty belly, I always start with the maguro - red one less fat to what I consider the... More

We ate great sushi in this restaurant located on the legendary Yodashiba Camera, 9 floor shopping mall dedicated to technology and where my Wife gave me a legendary Casio G - Shock :-)

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
