Experienced chef, excellent food

We ordered ¥25,000 dinner sets and sake. The chefs are experienced and the sushi are fresh. Needless to say anything else.

My girlfriend and I went to this restaurant expecting a decent price (100-150) based on the reviews and an one ($) symbol on trip adviser. Sadly I walked into the restaurant with literally 25000 yen. That was literally not enough. Don't get me wrong . This restaurant is amazing , atmosphere and service is spectacular but expect to pay crazy... More

Since 1936, Kyūbey’s quality and presentation has won it a moneyed and celebrity clientele. Even so, this is a supremely foreigner-friendly and relaxed restaurant. Expect personal greetings in English by the owner Imada-san and his team of talented chefs who will make and serve your sushi, piece by piece. For a real treat, order the kaiseki (Japanese haute cuisine) menu... More

This is a mecca for sushi lovers. One dish after another was excellent. The meal was so well designed and so well paced that the overall experience was delightful. Our sushi chef was very accommodating, explained the food in English, indicated when to dip and when not, and really added to the enjoyment of the meal. And what an artist... More

There is no need to further expound upon the fact that this is world class sushi. This is what you need to know from our experience. My wife does not eat seafood. Not a bit. So when I am on my dream trip to Japan there is no way I will pass up a chance to eat here. Reservations were... More

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

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.
