Fresh sushi but be prepared to queue

We were looking for a restaurant to settle our dinner when we saw this long queue forming in front of a restuarant. We quickly googled and found this to be the famous midori sushi which was highly raved about it was already close to 9pm at that time and we thought there's a slim chance of us... read more

Can you say food-gasm?!? Coz I CAN! Amazing. Everything was so so so so so good! I swear though, I did not expect less--neither did my SO! Japan...the land of honor, pride...the kamikaze and the Geisha. The tobiko-unagi-sake - and and and- of his place fit RIGHT IN! Awesome meal. Good deal. Do it. BUT!! Don't forget to take a... More

Had a sushi platter on both occasions for ¥2500/2800. The only sushi joint I know that has a queue besides those at Tsukiji (Sushi Dai and Daiwo). Went at 1030am, got a queue number from the machine, restaurant opened at 11am. Peak hours queue will obviously be longer. Must try their crab salad and avocado/sashimi salad.

This little restaurant came highly recommended by a very close "foodie" friend. The hotel cautioned me about the wait. I was not aware that you need a ticket to reserve your place in line. The ticket kiosk was a little confusing but a nice couple helped me out. I waited for a good hour. Once I got in I was... More

The thing to remember about eating at Midori is: get your ticket number first! The queue is not based on seating position at the waiting bench, so don't rush to get a place on the bench. The queue ticket machine is by the door and it has some English - basically you select how many persons are eating and whether... More

This used to be my 'must go' restaurant in Tokyo but was really disappointed with my pass two visits.

My wife and I were looking for an affordable sushi restaurant and stumbled upon this place. There was a long line….because it's VERY MUCH worth the wait. I have gone to some of the best sushi restaurants in NYC and this place beats them all. I also went to a couple of sushi restaurants near the famous Tsukiji Market…and they... More

We Visited it mainly because of the great reviews from trip advisor and lonely planet PROS Decent price Crab salad Sashimi Salad ok (not spectacular) CONS Average sushi/sashimi Almost tasteless rolls Ridiculous waiting time (2h10m Sunday night) To be avoided: you can find better places around to get your sushi/sashimi fix

The chefs behind the counter were amazingly friendly. Service was fast but be prepared to que up for about 30-45 mins. There is a number system which people tend to overlook due to the line building up outside of the restaurant. Each sushi portion comes in a generous size. Maki was good and very fresh too. Be prepared to try... More

We went to this restaurant because of recommendation from a friend. We had to queue up for an extremely long time, almost an hour. As this restaurant is extremely popular, we have high expectations of it. However, it turned out that the sushi of this restaurant was not really yummy. Only the crab meat and vegetable appetiser was of our... More

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
