A great EXPERIENCE in a very friendly environment. The food is prepared in front of you and one of the chefs risks a little Portuguese. Highly recommended!

If there was literally one place I'd recommend eating in tokyo it's here. We ate here on the recommendation of a lovely couple from NYC we met in our hotel lift....and could not have been more blissed out by the experience. There's no English sign out front but once you arrive the staff are super friendly and explain everything in... More

My wife and I with a couple of friends from Switzerland visited this restaurant during our vacation last week. We have been many times to Japan the last 20 years but I have to admit, that this was one of the best restaurants I've ever visited. The freshness of the fish, the friendly staff and the outstanding presentation of the... More

As San Francisco Bay Area residents we normally get pretty good sushi already but wanted to try this Bento.com recommended place and it was totally worth it. We ordered 2 set menus (US$90 & US$120) and found every item (prepared in front of you of course) to be pretty much the best we ever had. Since the restaurant is inside... More

Kyubei (or kyubey if searching in a map application) is an institution that has been around since the 30's. Unlike many high-end sushi restaurants in Tokyo, Kyubei is very tourist-friendly. The sushi chefs are well-versed in English and happy to help with the basics, like when to use chopsticks or fingers. It is also possible to get a reservation at... More

Reminded of eating at Auberge du Pont de Collonges Paul Bocuse. Upon arriving at the flagship location, the old man is welcoming all the guests and (to his credit) has managed to work his restaurant into a multi-location, multi-concept mini empire. Articles to be found in the WSJ and BBC. The rooms are all small and there are no more... More

Our five point review: 1. Top quality omakase, 12-courses, the toro and horse mackerel were our favorites though every dish was top notch and fantastic. The preparation and timing of the dishes was perfect, the artistry and subtle flair of the "sushi samurai", as our chef smilingly described himself, was wonderful. Each chef has 20+ years of experience and from... More
