Food for the eyes, palate, stomach and heart!

Kyubey is one of the few traditional sushi places that welcome non Japanese speaking foreigners. (trust me, we tried to get into MIztutani down the street without success) However, the standard and tradition of sushi is not compromised at all, even with a whole 5 floors of sushi bars.

We were staying at The Okura Hotel and had read about Kyubei, so we were very keen to try it. Luckily I have Japanese colleagues who were in Tokyo on business at the time we were staying and they managed to secure a reservation. You need a local to make a reservation for you in advance as you can't just... More

I have heard a lot about Kyubey. And it did not disappoint. Service is very friendly and good and the chef is a bit of a clown (in a good way). He speaks some English. There was an Italian couple next to me and I noticed that the chef had a printed a note of Italian terms which he could... More

Power people, locals and a few tourists: it's expensive but you won't regret and forget a real experience of a sushi restaurant. The interiors are tipically Japanese (wood made furniture) and the sushi is prepared in front of you by skilled chefs. It's a Tokyo institution and maybe you can find Steven Spielberg sitting next to you whilst eating.

Good food and nice little place. But we paid 150€ each for 10/15 pieces of sushi and sashimi. The food was very good, but too expensive :(

The hotel found Kyubey for us under the requirement high quality but family friendly and informal. They couldn't have made a bet choice. Even with the reservation we had to wait for 30 min in the 2. floor "waiting room" which made us feel like waiting for a dentist appointment. After getting to the sushi bar downstairs our mood changed... More

Excellent choices of sashime and sushi by the chef. Fresh and good quality. They also have good value set meals. But we opted for omakase a la carte. Though we cant recall all the names of the fish, mostly good, especially the toro.
