Very good sushi at a good price

Fresh and tasty food, especially the sushi, at a very good price. We went there for dinner two times without reservation and were able to get a table. However both times the restaurant was crowded and we had a time limit (1h30) to finish our meal, it is probably better to book a table in advance... read more

Many choices for fresh sushi with very reasonable price. Their service was great. Even though they had trouble understanding English but they still tried patiently to understand what we need. The restaurant is located in downtown area but will need a car to get there. There's a paid parking for about 5 minutes walk. I would recommend reserving a table... More

Went here based on TripAdvisor reviews and have to say that it didn't disappoint! I ordered a whole selection of stuff, including the fabled Tuna Sashimi and all of it was delicious. They were fully booked but as I was a solo diner they found space at the bar for me so I didn't have to wait very long to... More

In love with this restaurant - the sushi is super fresh, don't miss the bluefin tuna sashimi and the chilli prawns are to die for. Spicy french fries make a good accompaniment to any meal as well as the obligatory draft Orion beer! You'll want to visit this place more than once, it really is that good. Much better value...

The sushi was amongst the best I've ever tasted, doesn't quite take the top spot from sushi dai, in Tsukiji Market, but it's close. Good value all in all, draft orion for 450. Would recommend highly.

Wanted to try this place based on other reviews. It is so popular...couldn't make a reservation but happened to be passing just before 5pm and were told that we could sit at the counter until 6.15 The reviews rave about the tuna..but actually you can get the same or better at any revolving sushi place in Japan. The stand-out dishes... More

This restaurant is popular with locals as well and I would recommend to make a reservation beforehand even in low season. The food is delicious (especially the sushi)! Some portions can be quite big if you're only two people so go with some friends so you can try more of the dishes. The only thing I'm missing is a non-smoking... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Ishigaki! According to suggestions from others we had tuna (excellent, really special quality!) noodles with sea urchin sauce, spinach salat (especially tasty!) and mango pudding (best pudding eaten in my whole life!). All in all highly recommendable!

Ended up eating here twice, each time got a table immediately without having to wait. Be prepared to take off your shoes and put them in a little locker before being seated. The place has an English menu, unlike many other places in Ishigaki. Service is very quick and friendly. Good for sashimi and sushi, but they also have Okinawan... More

We were lucky to get a table in this restaurant. Probably we looked too hungry and the lady at the front counter pitied us, just after saying the restaurant was full. They assigned us a table on the second floor. We had assorted sashimi, seaweed tempura and peanut tofu. The fish melted in our mouths, as well as the silky... More
