experiential cruciality

so, in life there are things that one should just do, because it is a crucial experience. I wouldn't say that my wife and I enjoyed everything on the omekase but it was truly an experience to remember. beautifully presented with lovely service for a serious price.

Of all the sushi restaurants that we have had the privilege to enjoy, this place ranks among the best of them. Because of the abundant bounty from the sea available around Japan, the seafood here is fresh and fairly affordable. Each of the offerings were expertly crafted, and the spices are kept to the bare minimal, to allow the freshness... More

Well presented, ate the omekase, which is chef's choice of 12 pieces. Liked the raw shrimp even though I was worried about it to start. Just let the chef tell you what to do!

Let me begin by saying that I have eaten at many sushi restaurants, including some of the famous ones like Sukiyabashi Jiro and Sushi Kanesaka. However, in terms of experience and price performance, dining at Sushi Kyubey was my most enjoyable experience. The sushi served was top quality (maybe slightly below Jiro), and everything served was very fresh. The combination... More

Read the reviews and headed over by myself on my first night in Tokyo for a business trip. Did not fully realize this is a famous place (learned President Obama ate there on prior trip to Tokyo). First things first, the listing shows one $, that is an error. This will be one of your more expensive meals. I went... More

I had sushi several times in Tokyo last week and have enjoyed sushi in the U.S. Is San Francisco and NYC. Those experiences did not prepare me for Kyubery's mastery of sushi. Now I can understand why people pay such high prices for what others call raw fish and vinegar and vinegared rice. The wide variety of fish, the subtle... More

I've been there after reading some reviews (i wish i've read more!) and decided to go for the one $ in the main page of tripadvisor about the Kyubey. I was so sorry when i discovered that that was really a trap! First I had some clue when we arrived at the entrance, where a girl asked if we had... More

Nothing special at all ...sushi of quality and taste that can be had for less than 1/3 of the price elsewhere. We have eaten at places that charge as much as $300+ but what Kyubei served aren't worth more than 40% of what they charge.

This was the best restaurant we visited in Japan on our trip. The chef was funny, explained every piece of sushi, answered questions, and had only 5 guests to serve and gave a lot of attention to everyone. For the counter of about 17 seats, there were 4 chefs, so the customer to chef ratio is low. The food was... More

Went for lunch on our second day in Tokyo and had our best meal on the trip so far. We ordered the omakase meal with 10 pieces of sushi. After the first bite we were in heaven. The tuna just melt in your mouth and was so fresh and delicious. The live shrimp stole the show. Definitely get this raw... More

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

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.
